2014 Season Recap

Well the 2014 season is now in the books. Quite a year with 9 pulls in 3 states with over half of in a period of 7 days. Thank you to all of the competitors that came out to support our events in 2014. We will be working in the next few weeks to set a date for the Fall rules meeting and awards banquet. This is a rules and officers voting year so please be thinking of who you would like to see as officers and what rules you would like to see changed both for your class and for the betterment of the club.

The website is updated with the results from the Sandcreek Shootout in Wahoo, NE, the final 2014 Points results, and videos from Wahoo.

New Pull Added to the Schedule

Many of us had heard rumors but last night I was told to put the Sandcreek Shootout back on the schedule. This great pull will be held at the Saunders County Fairgrounds on 09/06/14. Please make plans to attend!

And we are off…

The 2014 season is underway. With three pulls under our belts we are headed to Denison, Iowa 07/22/14, Missouri Valley, Iowa 07/24/14, and Pawnee City, Nebraska 07/25/14 this week.

The results from the first three pulls are uploaded. Hopefully I will have time to get the points updated this week.

Official 2014 NPPA Schedule

We had some bumps to work out on the way be we have signed some new pulls up for this year, signed some old events back, and maintained most of our 2013 events. Be sure to check out the Schedule page or CLICK HERE for a printable copy of the 2014 Schedule. Also note that we have added a TI on the day of the Fillmore County pull so please be there during the times posted to receive your points (no points will be given after the cut off).

TI @ The Bouc’s house

***REMINDER*** Rain or shine we will be at Chris and Paula Bouc’s house doing TI’s this weekend from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM on Saturday. Please try to make it out get yours done early so we don’t have as much to do come Geneva. The link below should bring up a Google map of their address (but if not give one of the officers a call or text).

Sandcreek Shootout Update

All Pullers,

Due to a double booked schedule at the Saunders County Fairgrounds the Sandcreek Shootout in Wahoo, NE on 06/28/14 has been postponed. Jeff and Kevin are working with the NPPA, Saunders County Fairgrounds, and the sled to see if we can find a date for later in the year. We will keep you updated when things get ironed out. Also this means that we will not have our TI on 06/28/14. The officers are discussing options and will post another new date as an alternative for the 06/07/14 date at Chris and Paula Bouc’s House but we would highly encourage everyone to try and make this date. Once we get into pulling season there won’t be much time for changes and fixes.

2014 Spring Meeting Notes and Updates

For those that couldn’t make the spring meeting I have put together a few notes of things that were discussed. Also please note that a new pull may be added to the schedule for 07/24/14 so try to keep that date open.

2014 Tentative Schedule

The Spring Meeting has been set for Saturday April 05, 2014 at 4:00 PM in Wahoo, NE at the Heritage Inn. We hope to see you all there and as a reminder points are awarded for attendance! This will be the last date to pay your insurance and membership and still receive the $50.00 price reduction!

I have also put up a tentative schedule on the schedule page for those that are trying to plan vacations. The dates with locations are confirmed pulls with signed contracts and deposits. Most others have confirmed that they would like us to have an event on the date marked but I do not have the contract and deposit back yet. Again, these are not certain until we have a contract signed.

 

It’s 2014!

Hopefully all of our NPPA Members and Fans had a safe and joyous holiday season. The officers are heading to Kearney, NE for the Fair Convention in a few weeks and we’ll hopefully know more about the schedule after that. If anyone knows of someone looking to have a pull this year please have them contact an officer or get their contact info to an officer.
