2019 Season Kickoff!
Hello! Hope everyone is having a great winter and dreaming of warmer weather and the 2019 NWOJR summer rodeo schedule!
All new forms are uploaded and ready for you to send to Jamie. Our first rodeo will be in Alva on June 8-9th. Pre-entries are due the Wednesday before on June 5th! You can find the dates and entry methods on the Forms page. Also, the new rulebook is posted, so check it out when you get a chance! Pay attention to the order of events because we have switched things up for the upcoming season. We will start our rodeos off with our calf events so be sure to make sure you are prepared for the new order!
Also, we have added 7-10 team roping this year to help encourage our younger participants to start team roping. We will not use a barrier for this event. We also will only be awarding one saddle to the Champion Team Roper. Both runs will count for points towards the event saddle, but only the highest placing will go towards the All-Around.
We have also changed the Chute Dogging to match the NJHSRA event. We will have a chute coming from the roping chute, rather than using the bucking chutes. We hope this change will help prepare them for what they will face when they compete at their state rodeos.
With the finals being earlier this year, ticket money and sponsorships will be due earlier as well. The money will be due the weekend of the July 6-7th rodeo, so be sure and pick up your tickets at the first rodeo! Sponsor forms are on the Forms page if you would rather get sponsorships than sell tickets! You can also do a combination if you wish. We are going to add some extra incentive this year as far as fundraising is concerned! Remember last year the high ticket sales and/or highest sponsor collector received $400 in NRS gift cards and a beaded headstall! Not only will we recognize the high money raiser this year at the finals, but every member who raises at least $1000 by July 6-7th weekend, will receive a brand new hoverboard!
See ya this summer! We are looking forward to another great season!
