How to Enter an FCA Rodeo

Order of Slack at All Rodeos

TD/SW/TR/LBR/JBR (if there is BAW it will follow TD and PWB follows JBR)

ALL FINES MUST BE PAID PRIOR TO ENTERING A RODEO - If you have fines with any of the other rodeo associations you will not be allowed to enter.  You must clear up your fines prior to entry

Memberships will not be processed on the day of phone in entries! You must purchase your membership prior to phoning in.  They need to be submitted by 12:00 on Friday prior to phone entries

A few things to consider when entering a rodeo:

  1. The office needs to fill the performances in all events before a slack will be considered in that event.

  2. If you enter for 2 full performances you may end up in slack.  There is only room in the performances for a certain number of competitors and the Committees have some locals that will get a performance.

  3. Our Rodeo Committees determine how many people they will take in a performance.

  4. If you enter for slack you will receive a better draw in the slack.  The barrel racers will be drawn in the top and the other timed events at the bottom.

  5. We do not take in to consideration Jackpots and non sanctioned Rodeos when doing the draw, we can only do our best with the co-approved rodeos on our schedule.

Buddy Groups – A buddy group includes up to a total of four (4) people. All members of the buddy group must go to the same number of rodeos but the lowest priority still affects the whole group. Example: If three people in the group go to 3 rodeos  and your 4th person is only going to one that will bring your priority down and you may not receive the day you asked for at the FCA rodeo. Timed Event entries if you normally don’t travel with roughstock, you can’t buddy with them just to get a performance.
