May 2014


NOTE: Annual IBCA General Meeting – Saturday, August 2, 2014 at the Austin VFW Post 8787, 500 VFW Rd., Austin, TX

All proposed rule changes must be submitted in writing to or P O Box 81, Keller, TX 76244 prior to June 15, giving us time to present them to the PITS for their input. We are in the process of updating the By-Laws and Constitution which will be presented to the membership for their approval.

Where has the year gone – can’t believe that it is already May. IBCA has sanctioned 90+ events since the first of year and have at least that many more on the calendar with more being added weekly.

For the Annual meeting we will be attempting to get free entries from the Promoters as well as any other donated items to be raffled off to benefit Kash for Kids.

Congratulations to Jamie Geer, Craig Sharry & Ronnie Wade – all three have an automatic spot into the Jack Daniels event, Jamie by winning the Houston Livestock Rodeo BBQ and Craig and Ronnie for having 7 qualifying grand champions.

If there is anyone that would like to contribute to the newsletter each month – I would appreciate the help. I try to get it posted and sent out the first week of the month.

Added money event:

TCBA 5-16/18 Beaumont Masonic Lodge – Beaumont, TX – membership
Must be current as of 4-30-14

Don’t forget, the added IBCA money event will be in Silverton, TX on September 19-20 at the Briscoe County Cook-off. Make your plans to attend.
