We held a board meeting on November 5th in Casper! Here was the agenda! The unofficial minutes will be available soon!
Great job Wheatland High School Rodeo Club for a job well done! A Big Thank You to all of the Fall Hosting Rodeo Clubs for helping us put another Fall Season in the books! We'll have a short break before we start getting things geared up for the spring season, but the tentative spring schedule is posted below!
Now is a great time for all directors to start looking for donations and sponsors. The 2017-18 advertising contract is on the 'WHSRA Sponsor' tab, and making contacts now will help secure those donations come spring!
HERE IS A TENTATIVE SPRING 2018 RODEO SCHEDULE- INCLUDING WINTER CUTTINGS IN THERMOPOLIS & RCH EVENTS IN DOUGLAS. Please remember, dates are always subject to change as are the events they host. I do not know at this time which will have cutting and/or reined cow horse, but when I know I'll post it! We plan to do pre-entries for the Spring 2018 rodeos, but details are yet to be determined! And it is possible we may have on-line entries, but no details are available at this time When spring rodeo information becomes available it will be updated under the appropriate HS Divison tab or JH Divison tab, so check them often.
If you have questions regarding individual sponsorships and what signage is allowed in the arena at local, state and national rodeos, please go to the 'New's tab for an update or contact National Director, Dixie Huxtable for further clarification!
THE WYOMING MEMBERSHIP PROCESS HAS NOT CHANGED FOR 2017-18! If you received an email regarding 'registering' with NHSRA, at this time it is for updating your national information only(not to become a 2017-18 member)!
