Vet & Doctor Releases

Due to the high number of releases our office is receiving we will no longer

process releases that do not have the required documentation.

This means you will be fined for turn out(s) because our office

will not be able to locate the rodeo file to apply release to.

This is not a new rule.

Requirements are as follows:

1.  Must be received within seven (7) busisness day following the final perf.

                          2.  Must have the contestants name and THE NAME OF THE RODEO.

The majority of releases our office receives do not have the rodeo name

and many are sent to the wrong association.  If the vet or doctor does not put

the name of the rodeo you can hand write the rodeo name on the release. 

DO NOT leave this up to the vet or doctor.  This is your responsibility.

No exceptions!

You must send to the rodeo association

that  is 1st sanctioned regardless of which association you are a member of.



Draw Position Rodeo
Entry Guidelines

DRAW POSITION RODEO- every contestant that enters a rodeo must give performance/slack preferences.  You may also give an OUT preference.  You no longer have to call and enter immediately when the books open in order to try and get a specific performance.  AFTER the books close you will be randomly drawn into a performance/slack.  The time you enter has no bearing on priority.  ALL CPRA current card holders will have the ability to enter online.  You will also be allowed to buddy and trade.




BOOKS OPEN:  Wednesday and Thursday 10am-4pm (week BEFORE rodeo)/Online entries will be available beginning Tue 10am and will remain open 24 hours/day until Thursday 4pm.  Only Current Card holders w/o a Fine will be allowed to enter online.  You may call RSN or CPRA office to obtain your Username and Password for online entries.  PLEASE do not try to call during book times to get your Username and Password. (It would be better to call on Monday, Tuesday or Friday 9-4)

  • Contestants must have card numbers or last 4 of SS# of each contestant they are entering.  No exceptions.  If you enter online you will need an RSN# for each contestant.  You will be given this information with your Username and Password.
  • All calls are recorded.  Contestant will be given a confirmation number each time they call and a change is made to an entry.  You must have the confirmation number in order to modify an entry.  Confirmation numbers are given in case of a discrepancy.  If you do not have a confirmation number we cannot look up a recording of a call.  ONLINE entries will also receive a confirmation # each time you enter or modify an entry.  You must keep them all.


BUDDY GROUP LIMITS:  You will be allowed to BUDDY 4 CONTESTANTS per group.  This would mean only 2 TEAMS.


* When books close and the draw is executed, a group with ALL CURRENT CARD HOLDERS will have priority (better odds of getting their preference) over a group that does not.  If only 1 contestant in a group is a Non member then the whole group is treated as Non members and will not have priority over a group that are all current card members.


*  Example:  IF a contestant buddy group consist of a TE contestant and a RS contestant,  Buddying with
someone in an event
(like RS) that does not have SLACK as an option, does NOT guarantee the TE contestants a performance.  In this case, the buddy group may be SPLIT. 
*This is also true if a multievent contestant enters an event that offers slack and one that does not. 




              a.  If a contestant enters multiple events ON 1 CONFIRMATION number, then the events are AUTOMATICALLY BUDDIED by

                   default, UNLESS the contestant specifically ask to not buddy his events.

              b.  If a contestant makes an original entry in 1 event and then later enters another event, those events will NOT AUTOMATICALLY be

                   buddied because the system generated another confirmation #.  However, you may still buddy those events, you simply need to let the

                   operator know that you would like to buddy those events.  The operator does not know you made a prior entry.


CONFLICTS:  If you enter more than 1 rodeo, in which the dates of the rodeos overlap, you may be conflicted (entered at both rodeos at the same time).  If you are conflicted, you will be allowed to find a TRADE.  You will need the confirmation # or last 4 digits of SS# of contestant you are wishing to trade with.  In the event that you cannot find a trade, you will be responsible for Turning Out and paying your entry fees.



*Trades are made after books close.  Position for Position.  You MUST have confirmation number or last 4 of SS# to trade.



          *IF you give OUT as one of your preferences during entries, you MAY be drawn out.  IF you were DRAWN OUT of the rodeo, you

                will be allowed to re-enter the rodeo, WHERE NEEDED, on Monday 10-4. 

          *All Timed event contestants(except Barrel racing) will be added to the top of the event order, Barrel racers will be added to the bottom.



  • The 1st rodeo to be drawn will be the rodeo that adds the most money. The next rodeo with the most added money drawn next, etc etc. 
  • If more than 1 rodeo adds the same amount of money then the rodeo with the greatest number of contestants will be drawn First.



We would like to thank all of the contestants that have been courteous and kind over the many years we have served your association.  It has been a pleasure!

Our operators are trained to be knowledgeable, courteous and respectful to the contestants.  Therefore, we will not tolerate members or non members being disrespectful (directly or indirectly) to any of the operators.  ANY foul language or derogatory comments will be considered disrespectful and reported to the CPRA and the contestant will be fined.  It is our goal to handle every situation that may arise in a friendly, fair and civil way.  We can only do this with your cooperation and respect.

We look forward to an incredible year and are anxious to work with CPRA in the positive, progressive steps you are making for the future of your association.  If you have any questions concerning the entry guidelines please call our office or the CPRA office and we will be glad to go over them with you. We are sincerely appreciative to work for you!  Let’s RODEO!

Contestant Rodeo Entry Instructions



Online entries

  • Select the performanct you wish to enter. Once you’ve selected your perf (or slack) will then have a 2nd & 3rd option.  “Out” can be used for option.  (“Out” means if there is no opening in the perf in the options you chose then you are out, period.)  Do not give an option that will not work for you because if a perf is not filled an option in which you’ve given as a 2nd or 3rd perf, you do run the risk of being pulled by random draw to that perf. If you are concerned that slack will not be accepted due to low perf entries, then give a 2nd option of a perf that will work for you.


Watch for slack notice

You will see a notice stating “Slack is not guaranteed at this time”.  Once perfs are filled the notice will change to state “Slack is now guaranteed”.  If you need to change your preference you will have to call the entry office at this time.  A change in programs is being looked into to make online preference changes a possibility.
