How to Enter an FCA Rodeo

Order of Slack at All Rodeos

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

A few things to consider when entering a rodeo:

Memberships will not be processed on the day of phone in entries! You must purchase your membership prior to phoning in.

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 Bassano, Arrowwood, Whitecourt and your 4th person is only going to Bassano 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.

ALL FINES MUST BE PAID PRIOR TO ENTERING A RODEO, the system is set up so that it will not allow you to enter a rodeo with an outstanding fine. (this also includes outstanding fines with LRA, WRA, CCA, CRA these must be paid before you can enter)

  1. Online entries will save you a lot of time hitting redial as there is only one phone line on entry day and one phone operator. Please follow the steps below.

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

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
