2024 Season Update

To all FCA Members

 

Hello FCA members, The Board of Directors is sending you this letter to inform you of some changes for the upcoming 2024 rodeo season. The FCA will be running its own separate season from the Chinook this year but will continue to Co-approve rodeos and work closely together. The FCA will go back to running its own office, and season for 2024. We acknowledge the hard work and efforts by both the Chinook and FCA boards to run a joint season and finals, but the FCA and its mother rodeo committees feel it is in the best interest to run separately again. Details on a finals are being worked on and will be out to the membership once completed.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any FCA board member.

 

Yours truly

 

The FCA Board of Directors

 

 

Tie Down Ropers - Note 

Calves must be run through the arena one (1) hour before the 1st performance at each FCA Rodeo. 

Every calf roper in the 1st performance or slack must help run and tie the calves (tied only if required) one (1) hour prior to 1st performance or slack or a Twenty Five Dollar ($25) fine will be assessed. 

 

2024 Season Rule Changes highlighted in red

Tie Down Ropers please be aware of the new rule change for 2024 in regard to the jerk down rule.

A bust means that a calf is jerked straight over backwards, landing on its head or back, with all four feet in the air. If roper deliberately or unintentionally busts a calf, at the discretion of the judge he will be liable for a one hundred ($100) fine. The bust must be announced immediately.
