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.
* The membership period runs from August 1st to July 31st.
* Each contestant must obtain $300 in sponsorship's to be eligible to compete at the finals. The $300 worth of sponsorship's must be turned in by the 5th rodeo weekend. Any contestant that does not turn in their $300 worth of sponsorship's by the 5th rodeo weekend will have 1 week to submit it along with a $50 late fee. If money is not received one week from the 5th rodeo they will not be eligible to rodeo at finals. For every $1000 worth of additional sponsorship's 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. We have 20 rodeos that means at least 10 signatures will be required. This doesn’t mean that you work the whole rodeo (announce, time, flag, help set barrels, poles, 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!
