Tips to help with the entry process:


1.  We have a mail-in entry.  The forms will be mailed to you or you can get them from this page of the website.  The forms will be mailed to you from the State Secretary (Renee Cox), and must be mailed back to the Rodeo Secretary (Laurie Staley).  If you have not received entry forms, be sure to contact Renee.

2.  Please pay attention to the deadline for entries to a rodeo.  The deadline in clearly indicated on the entry form (usually 2 weeks prior to a rodeo), and is always a "postmark" deadline.  Entries will not be accepted past the postmark deadline.  If you send them Express or Overnight, be sure to waive the signature requirement.  There is also a "draw-out" date on the entry form.

3.  Please complete the form carefully.  Make sure the entry fee calculation is correct, the check is for the correct amount, and the check is signed.  Make sure both parents have signed the Medical Release and initialed next to each event you enter.

4.  Some rodeos will have stalls and camping (electric) available.  Usually district rodeos will have you send a separate check to the district secretary/treasurer.  These forms and checks must be sent separately from your rodeo entry.  Pay close attention to the deadlines on both forms, sometimes they are different.'

5.  Each day is a separate rodeo.  There is a random draw (which is done by computer) for each day.  The first 10 in the draw are run during Performance and the remainder in Slack.  Slack is usually held mid-morning, and the Performance is usually in the evening.  It is your responsibility to know when you are up.  The draw is usually posted on this website by Tuesday or Wednesday before the rodeo.

6.  The only circumstances you can request Performance or Slack are:  Graduation or SAT/ACT exams.  If the rodeo is held near your hometown area, you can indicate such on your entry form, and if possible, every effort will be made to schedule you for at least some events in one of the Performances.  This is not guaranteed as the draw is random, but every effort will be made.

7.  Once the position draw is done, and the "draw-out" date is passed, the only way you will be refunded your entry fee is if you have a letter from a physician or veterinarian.

8.  Each rodeo has a schedule.  Usually check-in is around 8:00 or 9:00 am.  You must check-in with the rodeo secretary or have someone check-in for you.  You do not have to be dressed in western attire for check-in.  Once you are checked-in, you must wear your back number at all times, and be dressed in full western attire when you are in or around the arena.  Not following this rule could get you disqualified from the rodeo.  Make sure you attend the Grounds Meeting.  Important information is usually announced at this meeting.

9.  Last, but not least, you and your parents should read the NHSRA Rule book.
