ANNOUNCEMENTS

RAFFLE TICKET DEADLINE

All raffle ticket books are due back to your district or division ticket coordinator BY APRIL 1ST.  This is a very important deadline, DON'T MISS IT, it can affect your scholarships and finals qualification and entering qualifing rodeos!!  APRIL 1ST, GET THOSE TICKETS IN!!
Thanks for selling them and thanks to all those who supported the raffle by purchasing the tickets.

RODEO ENTRY FORM

Don't forget you need to go to documents on your page and print and fill out a rodeo entry form to take to each weekend of rodeo's you enter.  THIS IS IMPORTANT!!
FINALS ENTRY HELP & HOW POINTS WORK

FINALS:  How to enter, how points work!

-There are 2 ways to enter finals, online or at call in.

-Part of finals qualification is to have sold your tickets and met the deadline for the return date, and be in good standing in the association.

-HS districts take the top 10 point earners (positions) in each district in each event.  If there is a tie in the 10th position they both will be able to enter & attend finals.

Hint:  Because sometimes a district cannot fill all the positions, they will be filled from the next highest season end position that entered finals from the other districts.  If there is only one position open, and we have 2 contestants (one from each district) who have entered, hoping to get moved into finals, both contestants’ entries will be accepted.    As a guideline, when the time comes to enter finals, it is suggested if you’re in the top 15 in hs districts, ENTER finals.  If a spot is available your entry will be used.  If there are no open spots after entries close you will be drawn out.

The contestant list will be posted on the website when it becomes an official entry list.

-JR division takes the top 20 in each event.    If there is a tie in the 20th position they both will be able to enter & attend finals.

- All points brought in plus points earned at finals determine hipoint and rookie standings. Build a Cowboy points do not count for hipoint or rookie standings.

TEAM EVENTS:  RR & TR

-When entering finals in either of team events, you must declare your partner when doing your finals entries.

-Communicate with your partner, prior to entries, don’t assume anything.  These are team events and you must enter with a partner. 

Hint:  Ranked points if in hs districts or actual points if in junior division are added together to determine how many points and what position you come into finals with.  This making it a TEAM EVENT. 

The top total point TEAMS will be the TR &RR teams entered for the finals.

(20 Jr teams and top 10 hs teams from each district (30 teams) not including ties)

You can enter pretty much with whoever you decide, but remember the ranking or actual points are added together and that forms the team.  Think about this if you are not entering with your usual partner!  

HS example:  You maybe season leader (header) with 80 pts. and if you enter with your partner who has 80 pts. the team will have 160 points.  This will put you in the top 3 teams coming into finals.  You will have 80 TR points towards hipoint and your partner will have 80 points toward hipoint.  BUT, if you enter as season leader with 80 points and the partner you choose is in 10th place, they will have 35 points, so as a team you will 115.  This will put you farther down in the team’s points coming into finals.  You will have 57.5 points toward hipoint and your partner will have 57.5 towards hipoint.

Finals points:

-HS contestants are ranked from 80 points for the season leader, down by 5’s to the end of the district to determine the points being brought into finals.

-JR division contestants carry the actual points earned in the season into finals.

All provincial champions and finalists are declared on points.

Points coming in + round one points+ round two points + round 3 points + average points = provincial champions and national qualifiers.

ORDER OF GO FOR FINALS:

Day 1 the contestants will compete from low point earner coming into finals down to the high point earner coming into finals.

In the hs division (when there are already ties for points coming into the finals) a draw will be done (in the tied positions) to set the order off go for the first day.

Day 2 will be a complete reversal of day 1 order.

Day 3 will be a random draw for poles and barrels.  All other event contestants will compete from the (including points coming into the finals) low person point earner up to the end of day 2 ending with the high point earners.  If there should be a tie in points after the end of day 2, the order will be set by going back to the averages on 2 rides/runs and the lowest average on 2 times will compete last for the timed events and the highest 2 combined scores will compete last in the scored events to break the ties in points and set the order for day 3.

HS round points are 20 and down by 2’s.  Average points are awarded after the 3rd round and are 30 points and down by 3’s.

JR round points are 35 and down by 3.5 points.  Average points are awarded after the 3rd round and are 35 points and down by 3.5 points.

POINTS AUDIT:  Points will tracked using the ARTS program at the finals and will be audited by 2 points secretaries. 

As per the rulebook page 39:  Rodeo results must be audited within two (2) days after rodeo to check for errors.  No scores, positions or prizes will be changed after five (5) days from the rodeo.
