IL 04 news:
All names listed in the top 5 tab will be receiving an IL 04 award for 2017.  There were some ties, but names are listed as to number of shows attended.  If there was a tie for number of shows attended, then names are listed in alphabetical order.  
Awards have been ordered but because of the last show being held in October,awards ordered will not be ready until mid November.  Looking for a place to hold awards mid/late November/early December.   Let me know if you know of any place we can hold a potluck that doesn't charge rent.

4 names were drawn for the year end drawing - Congratulations to Jade Ansteth, Keiarra Peters, Molly Johnson, and Sarah Patterson for a free IL NBHA state entry.  

We have been spoiled with the weather this summer - no rain at any shows this year except for the Pink Turn & Burn Barrel Race - thankfully, Copperas Creek Ranch has an indoor arena.  Ground was fast and show went very well.  Tamber Babler held the fastest time of the day to win the open with a 13.238.  Vicky Nutter won the senior class and Megan Windish, riding Rally, won the youth.  A show to benefit THE PINK FUND, to help breast cancer reciepients with their everyday living expenses.  The support during the whole day was amazing, with the bake sale, the live auction, the huge silent auction, 50/50, wonderful food concessions, good added money and a very well run show.  Thanks for all the hard work put into this show and making it such a fun day for the barrel racers.  Todd Beckman did the ground, Tom Wall did the announcing, and Kim Moss totally outdid herself on this show.  Everyone left with a smile even if the weather did not cooperate.  A new place to have a show - and hoping for another one next year.  Thanks to all for your participation in making it a wonderful day.

Jessica Lynch stepped up and sanctioned a cancelled IL 04 show, never dreaming she would have 90+ degree weather and very dry conditions in the middle of September.  With that being said, she had a very well run show.  Lots of parking, a very nice pen with good ground and great help made the day.  Molly Johnson held the fastest time of the day to win the open with a 17.294.  Vicky Nutter won the senior class and Adison Walker won the youth.  Thanks to everyone who helped with this show.

4 Rocks Arena had a big crowd and fast horses.  Tamber Babler set the pace on Saturday with the only 13 second barrel pattern run the whole weekend.  Tamber won the open class with a 13.932 and she was the only IL 04 member in the 1-D with 146 entries.  Jim Hankins won the senior class and Megan Windish held the fastest IL 04 time in the youth class, riding Rally.
Tamber Babler also held the fastest IL 04 time in the open on Sunday with 139 entries.  Jim Hankins won the senior class and Megan Windish won the youth class, riding Rally.  Megan held the fastest time of the day on Sunday with her youth run time of 14.075.  Thanks to everyone who contributed in anyway to help the show run so smoothly, setting barrels, opening the gate, working in the office, or donating to the 10 4 10 or the silent auction.  It was a great show.  Ground crew of Tom Wall, Brian Fesser and Jason Williams made and kept the ground in superb shape.  Thanks to Bob Piatt for announcing on Saturday.  Always a great place to run and a thank you to the new barn managers too.  Things went very well.

New website and new FB page for IL NBHA has been updated.  Check them out www.ilnbha.com and Illinois NBHA on FB.  All state show info will be posted thru the above.

The Bureau County Fair show had 72 entries in the open class.  Johnny Johnson held the fastest IL 04 time, riding Gentry.  Johnny also won the senior class riding Rancho.  Keiarra Peters won the youth class.   A big thank you to Travis H and his horse show workers for a great day of barrel racing.  On to the Green River Saddle Club for the annual Saturday night potluck.  Great food and fun times.  Sunday's show at Amboy started with some rain but it ended shortly after it started so it didn't really hinder the show.  The ground was fast indeed.  Vicky Nutter smoked a run and ran the fastest time of the day - the only 14 second run.  There were only 2 horses in the 1-D, Vicky with a 14.921 and Molly Johnson with a 15.387.  Vicky rolled her time to win the senior class.  Keiarra Peters held the fastest IL 04 time in the youth class.  Thanks to the Green River Saddle Club for hosting another NBHA show.  A special thanks to Del Nutter and Sue Cook and the show committee for a great day.  This will be the last time Del and Sue host a show for NBHA.  We appreciate all you and the club members have done in the past years for hosting barrel racing shows.  Hoping someone will step up for next year as it is a really nice place to show.  

Please note the change in the show schedule - the Pekin Riding Club show on Oct 8 has been cancelled.  We will be using the Sept 23 show for a replacement.  Jessica Lynch will be putting on a show at her Dad's place in Canton.  Showbill to come.

Sunny weather for a weekend of barrel racing.  The Winnebago Fair in Pecatonica had rain during the week before the show but the ground was in great shape.  With 128 entries in the open class, Duane Diedrich held the fastest time of the day to win the class, riding Chub.  Vicky Nutter won the senior class.  Brittany Nice held the top IL 04 time in the youth class.  Thanks to Lori Campbell, the fair board and the show helpers for a great show.

Absolutely perfect weather for the Wenona Barrel Days.  Nikki Little had the fastest time of the day to win the open class with Duane Diedrich and Charlotte Wall finishing in the top 3 spots.  Fastest IL 04 youth time was Brittany Nice and Riley Phillips was right behind her.  Duane Diedrich won the senior class with Charlotte Wall and Vicky Nutter all finishing in the top 3.  A huge thank you goes out to the Wenona Chamber of Commerce for allowing the show to happen again this year and also a even bigger thank you goes to Jennifer Blanchette who took over as show superintendent.  It went smooth and we hope you will take command again next year.

It is a pleasure to co sanction a show with Iowa District 5.  The weather was perfect, and so was the ground, for Saturday's race against some very tough competition.  Tamber Babler held the IL 04 fastest time, with 142 entries in the open class.  Megan Windish was the top IL 04 youth and Tammie Kear was the top IL 04 senior.  Sunday's race saw a few sprinkles during the open class and warmer temps.  Don Robinson held the fastest IL 04 time in the open and also rolled his time into the senior class to finish 3rd in the 1-D.  Megan Windish, once again, held the top IL 04 time for the youth.  Her youth run on Sunday was the fastest IL 04 time of the weekend, running a 17,780 on Rally.  A big thank you to IA district 5 for a great show and to Ron Stevenson for awesome ground each day.

The Pekin Riding Club was ready and waiting for barrel racers. Rain was threatening the night before the show but the rain was just enough to settle the dust.  Ground was good and fast.  Vicky Nutter, riding Jeff, held the fastest IL 04 time in the open class with Riley Phillips and Becky Johnson finishing out the top 5 fastest times.  Vicky rolled her time to win the senior class.  Megan Windish won the youth class on Rally.  Thanks to the Pekin Riding Club and all the show committee for hosting a very nice show.  The cook shack had some awesome food.  Mark your calendars for the next show on October 8.

Heavy rain started during the Black Hawk College Spring Speed Series show but thankfully, running in the indoor arena kept everyone dry.   IL 04 members took home 3 of the 4 open buckle awards.  The 1-D buckle went to Danea/Duane Diedrich (there was a tie between the two) 2-D buckle went to Dusty Pyse and 4-D buckle went to Jessica Jackson.  The open race saw 67 entries and Tammie Kear held the fastest time for IL 04.  Lacie Staley won the youth class and Tammie Kear rolled her time from the open to win the senior class.  A big Thank You goes to the show committee/students/staff for another well run show.  Also thank you to all who sponsored the awards.
