Mississippi High School Rodeo

GENERAL RODEO INFORMATION:


As soon as you get to the first rodeo... See the Secretary to pick up your Contestant Back Number and packet!


DEADLINE TO ENTER THE FIRST RODEO AND LATE FEES:   The first rodeo entry deadline is Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019 at midnight.  The following three days, Wednesday, September, 4th thru Friday, September, 6th till midnight, will be considered a "late entry".  Late entries will be charged an extra $25.00.  No entries will be accepted after 9/6 at midnight for the first rodeo.  This deadline and late fee structure will be followed for the following rodeos, too.  

RODEO DRAWS:  The draw is posted exactly 1 week and 1 day AFTER the submission deadline. (Nine to ten days prior to the rodeo, per regulations page.)


DRESS CODE:   All contestants MUST be in full western attire (long-sleeved button-down shirt w/sleeves rolled down and shirt tucked in, jeans, cowboy hat and boots) ONE HOUR prior to the rodeo performance and during all slack. This also includes contestants who are entered in the rodeo but not competing during that particular performance/slack. If you are on the rodeo grounds during this time you MUST be in full western attire.  Back numbers must be worn ON YOUR BACK at all times while on the rodeo grounds. 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.  
 

SCHEDULES: The 2019-2020 rodeo, cutting and RCH schedules are now up and located under the Forms & Links tab.

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.  www.nhsra.com
