There are no fee's or due's to belong to BT USA. If you go to competions you have to pay your own way and host clubs usually require a small registration fee of a few dollars. International event costs are usually covered by sponsors and donated talent. Any profits go to a charity of the host clubs choice.
For International events, BT USA leader Phil Olsen often scouts out travel, hotels and local tours and may even get us group rate discounts. For information see:

Hollerodyo

I bought this little guy in the airport (flugenhafen) in Stuttgart.

Yee Haw or Gee Haw mean gitti-up to the respective left and right horse in a team.

If you want to turn right, you yell Gee and that means gitti-up to the horse on the left so the team turns right as the one on the right is a slacker.

If you want to turn left you yell Haw and that means gitti-up to the horse on the right so the team turns left as the one on the left is a slacker.

Never put a left horse on the right side or vs versa it just doesn't work very good.

If you yell Yee Haw together they both speed up and you have to run to keep up with the plow.
