Don't forget to renew your membership. On your membership form there is a box you can check to have your newsletters emailed or mailed. NCCHA spends approx. $300.00 per newsletter, just think, if everyone had their newsletter emailed, we could buy more awards.
In addition to giving lots of money away this year, we will also award Champion and Reserve Champion Gist Buckles and awards thru 5th place at our year end banquet. Final standings will be based on total money won.
New and exciting for 2009 . . . Northern Counties CHA is a NCHA affiliate . . . What does that mean? Well, let me tell you . . .
Cutters who finished in the Top 10 in their Area or Affiliate standings in
2009 are eligible to compete in the Wayne
Hodges Trailers * Outlaw Conversions NCHA
Championships, scheduled for
April 2010 in scenic Ogden, Utah.
NCHA has boosted the added money from
$12,000. to $20,000 per class without an increase in entry fees.
Let me say that again, each class will have $20,000. added with a
$500.00 entry fee . . .WOW . . . That IS AWESOME.
In addition to the great payout and all the action
in the Golden Spike Arena, the show will feature the $27,000 AQHA/NCHA
Affiliate Challenge, which means when you enter the show you will be
riding for NCCHA. Each rider earns points toward cash awards, and
the better they do at the show, the more points they earn for their
Affiliate!! It pays like this:
Don't Forget Your Papers
This brings NCHA in line with accepted practices at other major show associations and it will streamline and accelerate the processing of show results.

Great job everyone at the first show! Everyone did a great job showing their pony! Now letís keep it going and have us a great season!
Our first show on March 1st was just the start of the season. We only have 6 shows this year, so if we want saddles as the end of the year we need to go big with our fundraisers.
After the end of the Youth classes, we had a meeting to help plan out the fundraisers for the season. We decided to have a Bake Sale for the April 5th show. We would like everyone to talk to their friends, neighbors and family to get them to donate some cookies or a pie. Maybe you can even have a baking party! Any donations for the bake sale will be greatly appreciated.
At all the shows the youth will have a donation box out. Please feel free to help out the future of cutting and donate the spare change in your pocket. It will be greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us either on our phones, or through the email firstname.lastname@example.org.

A message from one of our members
I would like to thank everyone involved with the NCCHA for such a great show and for sponsoring the Cajun saddles. This past year was my first time in the show pen; to say the least it was terrifying and frustrating, but just being there was dream come true. My whole life, I have had one goal, to train and show cutting horses. I still have an awful lot to learn, but this is the first time in my 23 years that I have had anything tangible to show for my life's obsession. The horses themselves have always made cutting a worthwhile endeavor; but there is also the good people of this industry, people who have shaped my life in the arena as well as in the world. In the words of John Burroughts, "For anything worth having, one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love and self sacrifice." I know that all of you involved with the NCCHA has paid this price, and for that I am so grateful.

For the riders who are competing for points, Iíd like to give you some words of encouragement. Do you realize that in one show, you can advance 5 places in the standing? You never know what will happen at the next show. The person leading could lose two cows and you could win your class. Donít ever tell yourself, you donít have a chance, because youíre defeating yourself before you ever step to the herd. Tell yourself "I Can Do It" You are a winner, if you try to Do Your Personal Best.
There are three kinds of people
