NRHA NEWS Update: EC Qualifiers!!

2018 Updates
We have had a few new exciting changes this year, two in particular that we wanted to remind all of you about!
For the 2018 European Championships Qualification Timeline, please note that it is structured as follows:
January 1-December 31 of 2017 the top ten from each class will be qualified for the 2018 European Championships. In addition, if a member from the start of 2018 within 45 days prior to the European Championships manages to earn enough points to get into the original top ten standings then he too shall qualify. For example:
If the following were the Top Ten Qualifiers for the Limited Non Pro in their affiliate as of December 31, 2017:
Bob: 50 Points
Betty: 48 Points
Riley: 35 Points
Liz: 32 Points
Kristen: 23 Points
Lauren: 20 Points
Shianne: 15 Points
Laura: 13 Points
Annika: 10 Points
Lerin: 7 Points
And from January 1, 2018 through 45 days prior to the European Championships, Debbie earns 8 Points in the Limited Non Pro in the same affiliate, then Debbie would technically take 10th place and would also qualify for the European Championships. So, in total, this affiliate would be sending the original Top 10 plus Debbie to make a total of 11 qualifiers to the European Championships.
Starting in 2018, the NRHA Board of Directors wished to make NRHA approved classes which are $2,000 or more in added money have the prestige of being a $2,000 or more added NRHA class with all of the recognition it deserves. They passed the rule change that requires all shows with classes that have $2,000 or more in added money (each individual class) to offer the NRHA Lawson trophy. This would require show management teams to purchase these trophies and have them available for the Champions of these classes. We ask that when the show approval is sent in that it contains payment for these trophies as well as shipping addresses for them. If this information is not included, the trophies will be ordered and billed to the billing contact on the application. If you have any questions on this, please feel free to let me or your European Council representative know!
Also starting in 2018, the European Nomination Conditions were updated by the European Council and the NRHA Board of Directors to have the age of European Derby horses be 5,6,7, and 8-year-olds. This means that four-year-olds will show in the NRHA European Futurity but not the European Derby in their four-year-old year. If you have any questions on this, please do feel free to speak to your European Council representative or directly to me! There have been press releases on these topics as well, but we wanted to reach out once again to help clarify!
Please note if you have any questions you are more than welcome to reach out to me, your representative on the European Council, or the European Executive Board.
