We will be holding a Tri-Tip Steak dinner on Friday, August 22, 2014 at the ranch to celebrate the life of Dennis Moedl, who passed in September of 2013. The Moedl family would be honored if all of you, who have become a part of our family, could attend.

Dinner will be provided by Milliron L Catering at a cost of $18 per person.
All profits will go towards incentive money for the Youth Competition during this year’s cutting, and the Montana Youth Scholarship Fund, in Dennis’s name.

Please RSVP to C.J. Moedl by August 18th so we can give the caterer a head count.

Sponsored by One Time Pepto, Jeffrey and Sheri Matthews, the "Finals Draw Party" on Thursday evening at the Big Sky Aged Event in Kalispell was well attended. Finalists drew their positions for both the three year old open futurity finals as well as the four year old open derby finals, both to be held Saturday, August 16. Again, thank you to Jimmy and Terrye Kemp for cooking and serving the evening meal of brauts and salads. Again, nearly 100 people were served at the event.


How about it? Wednesday night’s tri tip dinner and team roping at this year’s Big Sky Aged Event in Kalispell drew a big crowd of cutters and fans and offered a fun time for all. Thank you to Switchback Cutting Horses, Will Nuttall, and Jimmy and Terrye Kemp for the dinner and roping. Jimmy and Terrye cooked 55 lbs of tips and served a total of 94 people at the evening’s event. A nice get together and opportunity to visit, catch up with friends, and meet new ones, too.

Remember that Kalispell is a resort town, so please reserve your rooms early.

Angela Bauer Youth Scholarship Fund

The Angela Bauer Youth Scholarship fund was established in 2004 in memory of 29 year old Angela Bauer of Florence, MT. Angela was killed September 28, 2004 in a head-on collision by a drunk driver. Angela was an avid competitor and held many offices in the Montana
Cutting Horse Association, in addition to being a show secretary at many of the cuttings.

At several shows each year, an Angela Bauer Youth Scholarship Cutting is held, allowing MCHA youth a chance to compete for a scholarship. The Angela Bauer Youth Scholarship fund also awards a yearly $2000 scholarship to a graduating Senior. Through this Memorial Fund, $23,300 in scholarships have been awarded out to 16 MCHA youth cutters.

Donations to the Angela Bauer Youth Scholarship Fund can be made to:
The Angela Bauer Youth Scholarship Fund
c/o Kathy Foote
252 Convict Grade Rd
Livingston, MT 59047

All donations to this outstanding youth scholarship program go to promoting and assisting our youth in being able to fulfill that dream of continuing on to further their education. Any donations would be sincerely appreciated.

MCHA Member Spotlight

Jim Bower
“It all started with a pony named Duke that drug me through a barbwire fence”, Jim Bower stated. “Then, the next day my Dad sold him. I was 13. That was the end of my career with horses - until I was 45”, he continued.

“I saw Dan Lufkin’s photo on the front page of USA Today 25 years ago. I was playing basketball and Tae kwon do, getting beat up physically, and wanted a sport to compete in competitively in my 40’s. I thought cutting looked relatively ‘easy’, so I called Dan Lufkin’s office in New York. They transferred me to one secretary, then to the next secretary and then Dan answered,” a somewhat surprised Jim reflected.

Jim continued “I had never met Dan, he was a big-time brokerage firm and I introduced myself as a small brokerage firm. I was minute to Lufkin Jenrette, but he took my call. He put me in touch with Lindy Burch”.

“Now, I had never ridden a performance horse much less a cutting horse, and just imagine me – cutting with Lindy, on her terms!” Jim exclaimed.
