WHSRA BOARD MEETING - Sunday June 10th 8AM- Rock Springs Events Complex-Exhibit Hall
Sheridan and Buffalo rodeo clubs great jobs! I know the weather in Buffalo turned nasty for the last day, but thanks for sticking with us! A big thank you to all of the clubs, contractors, facilities, volunteers and judges who helped put on the 2017-18 qualifying rodeos. Without your dedication to High School & Junior High Rodeo, we would not be able to send the the great representation that we do to our National Competitions.
The on-line camping & stall reservations is still open, but may be a higher price now (click here or on-line registration info). If you did not purchase a State Finals season armband, you can do that when you get to Rock Springs (same $25 price). We will be running Slack Thurs. & Friday mornings at State with no ticket required and it will be timed event only (no rough stock or steer wrestling). Night performances will require a ticket and be full performances. The 2nd go-round is in reverse order of the 1st; SO IF you draw up in a Thurs. morning slack for the 1st go, you will take your second run Friday night and if you draw up Thurs. night performance for your 1st run, you will have your second run in Friday morning slack. Rough stock and steer wresting will do go-round 1 Thurs. night and go-round 2 Friday night. Here is the most updated Schedule of Events (updated 5.31.18) The draw for State Finals has been posted under the 'HS Division' tab!!
STATE FINALS VENDORS- we are accepting applications for vendors. Here is the application.
Very excited to have a great Wyoming JH Team headed to Huron, SD for the NJHFR! Here is the list of qualifiers!
The WHSRA is excited to announce the choice of Gillette’s CAM-PLEX as the site for the 2019 and 2020 Wyoming State High School Finals Rodeo. We were pleased to have three very qualified and valid site proposals to look at. The other two locations being the Sweetwater Events Complex in Rock Springs, WY and the Wyoming State Fairgrounds in Douglas, WY. All three locations showed great support and respect for Wyoming High School Rodeo. Following a written vote of the full board of directors, Gillette’s CAM-PLEX was chosen as the site for the 2019 & 2020 finals. The WHSRA hopes to start the site location process for the 2021 and 2022 State High School Finals in the near future. We look forward to working with all three facilities during that process, as we are considering a multi-site rotation for future High School State Finals. Details of the winning bid have not been released pending final contract negotiations with the CAM-PLEX. The final approved dates will be: June 3rd-8th, 2019 June 1-7th, 2020
***EHV1/EHM Information*** We are aware of a confirmed case in Wyoming of EHV1. (posted 5.3.2018) The affected horse had attended high school rodeos at Laramie on April 7th and 8th and Rock Springs on the 14th and 15th. Any horses at either of these events potentially could have been exposed as well and should be monitored closely preferably taking temperatures twice daily. Any horses with fevers (101.5 or higher) or showing respiratory or neurologic symptoms should be isolated immediately and their veterinarians consulted as to ongoing management. One horse from this premises NOT showing any signs of infection or disease attended the high school rodeo at Big Piney. While risk is minimal, horses at that event should be monitored as well. ********************************************************************************************************** We are monitoring the situation and are asking that you be vigilant with your equine care and preventive procedures to minimize the risk for exposure. Please visit with your vet and follow their prescribed protocol and vaccinations. Besides the fact sheet listed below we have the 2 page Brochure provided by the Wyoming Livestock Board available here as well. Here is a Fact Sheet from WLSB Vets-Dr. Jim Logan and Dr. Thach Winslow-Fact Sheet We ask that you review this information and take appropriate precautions for the health and welfare of not only your horses, but any you horses you may come into contact with! If you have a horse that is not feeling well or showing any symptoms, PLEASE, PLEASE keep that animal at home!!
