Greetings NHSRA members and friends, I’m Tina Kessler, the new Points Secretary and will be handling the duties of the Central Entry for Nebraska High School Rodeo. I currently reside in Callaway, Neb., with my husband Kevin, and our 12 year old daughter Morgan, who is a 7th grader and in her 2nd year of the NJHSRA. Any information you’d like to be posted on this website or in the Fence Post or Rodeo News, please submit it to either Becky or me.
On behalf of the NHSRA, I’d like to thank Tara McKay for her dedication the past couple of years. It was great to have her involved in the association. Personally, I wish to thank Tara for all her efforts as we transition the Points Secretary position over the coming months. We wish her well in the future and lots of luck to Tara, along with Jill Austin, and their new business, “Ranch Rebels”!
I look forward to meeting everyone. Until then, a blessed holiday season to all!
~ Tina Kessler, Points Secretary

ON LINE STALLION AUCTION
The National High School Rodeo Association is hosting their first On Line Stallion Auction. You can check out the feature stallions on http://NHSRAStallionAuction.com/index.asp. Bidding will begin October 1 and proceeds go to the NHSRA.
2012-2013 Calendar Fundraiser
The NHSRA requires each member to sell 10 calendars, due by March 1, to be in good standing with the association. The proceeds from the calendar program go to fund student activities and awards. This program has been successful in the past and there are many benefits for the members. The calendars sell for $20. Each week there is a cash drawing of either $40, holiday drawings of $200 and a $1,000 drawing during the State Finals. This year the cash drawings will be split between the ticket buyer and the student selling the ticket. Buyers and students can be multiple winners. Sell more calendars and you could be a weekly winner! For the NHSRA member, there is a reward program that can benefit each member if they are willing to sell more than the required 10 calendars. Members are eligible to receive rewards in each of the three groups as long as they have submitted their calendar stubs and money by the dates listed. If you need more calendars, contact an adult director or Becky Dailey.

Please make sure to legibly complete all requested information on the ticket stub. Make sure that money and ticket stubs balance. DO NOT SEND CASH. Do not staple money to ticket. Send in calendar stubs and money often — we will keep track of the number of calendars you have sold. Members will be responsible for collecting money for checks that are returned because of closed accounts and insufficient funds. You are responsible for payment or the return of calendars not sold. Send ticket stubs and money to Becky Dailey, PO Box 10, Arnold, NE 69120.
The Association will not be obligated to provide calendars to members after March 1st. Any member not submitting calendar monies prior to March 1st will owe the minimum sales requirement of $200 plus a $60 late fee that must be paid before any spring rodeo entries will be accepted. Becky must receive your calendar sales by April 1 to be eligible to rodeo the rest of the season.
If you have any questions, please contact a member of the Calendar Committee: Becky Dailey at (308) 539-6543, Tricia Schaffer at (308) 534-1244 or Jim Wakefield at (402) 336-4766. ❖
