This include during the Jr High rodeo also. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS! If you are found in violation of this rule you will be disqualified.  Contestants and Parents a copy of our rules and regulations is posted on the website under the membership information tab. Also, a copy with several other important forms, insurance card, rule book etc. was given to each contestant with their back numbers.  I would HIGHLY recommend that each contestant and parent take the time to read over these forms.

TEAM ROPING POINTS:   According to the NHSRA Rule Book, Team Roping points are collected individually throughout the year.  However, when you enter the State Finals the points gathered by the header and heeler are then merged together as a "team".  EX:  Bobby heads and collects 50 points by the state finals.  He enters the state finals with James.  James has 40 points as a heeler.  They now have a total of 90 team points to start the finals.
