Notification for High School Rodeo Crisis Fund Donation Recently the WYHSRA Board of Directors approved a motion to encourage all Wyoming rodeo clubs to donate either a minimum of $100 or a gift basket of equivalent value to the High School Rodeo Crisis Fund. The reason for this request is that the fund is available to help any injured member in need. For the past number on years, the national qualifiers have been putting together the basket. We would greatly appreciate your help and support. Please designate a member or parent to get your club’s basket to the Miss WYHSR Coordinator, Gerda Dickinson, during your rodeo or when entries are due at state. If you have questions, please contact Miss Wyoming High School Rodeo Kate, or Miss WYHSR Coordinator Gerda Dickinson, at the following email addresses.
WYHSRA MEMBERS AND FAMILIES. Please respect the rules and property of our beautiful Wyoming Fairgrounds. We are privileged to have several wonderful facilities in which to hold our rodeos, please try to leave your area as you found it by picking up trash, paneling horses only in a designated area (not on groomed grass), following all posted signs and returning borrowed items in good condition. Thank you!
Please remember student officers and directors that you may be asked to carry a sponsor flag at the local qualifying rodeos and you WILL be expected to help carry flags at the State Finals. If you do not have a horse capable of carrying a flag, please find a replacement now so you won't be scrambling just before grand entry time!
