A big thank you to all the people who expressed concerns and helped out when 2 of Libby's horses got sick and hurt at State Finals. Also a huge thank you to the families who offered their horses for Libby to ride. Thank you to the Macomber Family for your encouragement and excitement when Libby rode your horse in the short round. You all showed amazing kindness. Thank you from the Winchells.
Please be sure to let all of the parents, contestants, grandparents, aunts, uncles & anyone else planning to rent a golf cart this year. The credit card authorization form MUST be submitted with every golf cart reservation that is made. Even if the cart is being paid for by cash or check, Club Car has required that a credit card authorization form accompany every rental agreement, no exceptions. This is Club Car’s policy, and it will be enforced. The reason behind this policy is to cover any damages that may occur while in the possession of the renter.
RECAP OF LEXINGTON DIRETOR'S MEETING from TRICIA
Directors Meeting – Lexington – August 16, 2014
Discussed this past State Finals and felt the event went well. The Hastings Committee did an excellent job of arena maintance.
The 2015 NHSRA Calendar will be available for the students to pick up at the North Platte rodeo. The program will remain the same as last year. There are several event winners who have not returned a photo, therefore, photos will be selected for them if something doesn’t arrive soon.
We will continue to award the year-end all-around cowboy and cowgirl saddle and buckle as we have in past years.
Banquet tickets were handed out to the directors. Get your lucky tickets for the November 8 Fall Scholarship Banquet and Auction!
It was decided to require the goat contractors to have the goats prepared before they arrive at the rodeos. The goats will not be tied down at the rodeos. This will hopefully end the confusion on when or if the goats are being tied prior to a rodeo and it will allow the secretaries to have the goat draw posted in a timely manner. This information will be added to the stock contract.
Banner assignments were determined. Anyone is welcome to assist in hanging or taking down the banners!! J
Ground Rule for 2014 Nebraska High School Rodeo State Finals and National High School Finals Rodeo
Reined Cow Horse link
Students check out the link to the National Reined Cow Horse Association's introductory video of the NHSRA's newest event. Tentative plans are for an introductory level clinic this fall and competitions next spring. Anyone interested in learning more about this event can contact JB or Sonya Atkins.
In the event that you are sending your contestant to the rodeo alone or with a friend, you need to be aware of the following consequences if your contestant is hurt. According to Nebraska Laws, if the ambulance is called upon to render aide to an injured contestant, the contestant CAN NOT refuse transport. They will, however, be treated under Implied Consent, then transported. Only a parent or LEGAL guardian can refuse transport, unless the contestant is an emancipated minor. The people that you send your son/daughter with, also, can not refuse care/transport once it has been initiated. So the bottom line is, if your contestant son/daughter is injured, and the ambulance is called, they will go to the hospital, unless YOU are there to sign a refusal.
