FAQ's:

1) What do I have to do to qualify for Finals?

*Youth Members must compete in an event ½ of the scheduled rodeos, not including the finals, in order to qualify in that event for the Finals Rodeo and to receive season awards. Adults that enter in the Team Roping will be required to compete in a minimum of 4 rodeos to be eligible to compete at finals.


* The membership period runs from September 1st to August 31st.


* Each contestant must obtain $250 in sponsorships to be eligible to compete at the finals. The $250 worth of sponsorships must be turned in by the fourth rodeo weekend. Any contestant that does not turn in their $250 worth of sponsorships by the fourth rodeo weekend will owe a $50 late entry plus the $250 worth of sponsorships due with their finals entry. For every $1000 worth of additional sponsorships brought in by a contestant, they can rodeo for free 1 rodeo weekend (2 days).


*Each contestant or representative must work at 1/2 of the rodeos prior to the HOYRA Finals. This doesn’t mean the whole rodeo (announce, time, flag, help set barrels, poles, concession, gates, stripping chute, etc.). You will be given a note card at the beginning of the rodeo season. It is the contestants’ responsibility to get this signed by the event director directly after you have worked an event. You are to keep your card in your possession and to turn it in at the last rodeo prior to finals. If you happen to lose your card you will have to start over on work times. THIS IS NOT HOYRA’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS RESPONSIBILITY. ALL 6 & UNDER Contestants MUST be accompanied by an adult while volunteering in the Arena.


2) How do I get points?

*Membership dues and application must be completed and turned in by the end of the last scheduled event of the rodeo for which the contestant would like for his/her points to count. A copy of the contestant’s birth certificate must be furnished (for youth members only) for HOYRA records, and must be turned in by the next rodeo the contestant attends. No points will be accumulated or rodeo attendance counted until the membership application, dues, and birth certificate are turned in.  Payout may be held until these are submitted.

​* Each contestant will receive 1 participation point per event competed in within their own age group.

*  YOU MUST PARTICIPATE IN AN EVENT TO RECEIVE PARTICIPATION POINTS!
