RULEBOOKS AND MHSRA GROUND RULES:
Be sure to read the MHSRA Ground Rules. There are a couple of new ground rules that are in effect for the spring rodeos. You have all received new NHSRA Rule books as well.
Remember.... It is the members responsibility to know the rules.
New Ground Rules:
G. Breakaway Roping, Tie Down Roping – One (1) Loop will be allowed at all HS/JH Qualifying Rodeos in the breakaway and tie down roping. Two (2) loops will be allowed (if carried) at the HS/JH State Finals Rodeo.
H. Team Roping – Two (2) loops will be allowed at all HS/JH Qualifying Rodeos. Three (3) loops will be allowed at the HS/JH State Finals Rodeo.
When entering rodeos online be sure you look at and save the email confirmations you receive. The Tuesday after online entries, we will post the entries on the website under rodeos then draw.
If you entered incorrectly you can call the office by 2pm the Tuesday after online entries close to make changes. It is your responsibility to make sure your entries are correct!!
NEW POINT SYSTEM - The MHSRA Board of Directors implemented a new point system effective immediately. You can now carry in your Top 15 rodeos to state for a maximum 150 points. This replaces the Top 7 rodeos that we have done the past several years. There will also be 160 points awarded at the state finals instead of 80 as in the past.
If anybody has any questions please reach out to one of your state directors.
