SILVER STATE INTERNATIONAL RODEO - TUESDAY JULY 2-SATURDAY JULY 6
Eligible contestants are those who finished 5th-15th in their events at their state finals in their state.
Visit www.ssir.us for more information and required paperwork.
NATIONALS BASKET: Each year the NHSRA has a State Basket Auction at Nationals and most states are represented. We are again planning to participate in this. I have volunteered to be in charge so that nobody has to have their arms twisted. However to make it much easier for me to put it all together this year. I am asking that we do as they do in the Junior High Association and ask you to bring everything to check in at the state finals. Everyone is to donate an item or a minimum of $5 upon checking in at the Finals in Hastings. It is especially important to leave on the PRICE TAGS...or indicate to me what the worth of the product being donated is...as I have to put this on the description of the basket contents when I turn in the basket at nationals. Products can be homemade or store purchases.
"CHUCKWAGON CHARM" will be the theme of the basket this year. Last year we had a BBQ in Nebraska Theme and were able to put together a wonderful basket. We hope to do this again. Last year's basket was full of many different NEBRASKA products comprised of spices, seasonings, dips, coffees, chocolates, jellies, cook books, beef certificates, blankets, BBQ utensils, glasses, Husker materials, etc. If anyone would like to donate a Wagon with Sides to make our chuckwagon out of....that would be AWESOME! My idea is to give it the pioneer Covered Chuckwagon look. Otherwise all the money raised will buy the wagon and stuff to fill it! The monies raised from the auction helps supports injured athletes in the sport of rodeo. Last year Tyler Viers' Dad donated a beautiful handmade chest and we filled everything that we had in the drawers and then piled the top high!
IF ANYONE has questions, please contact me at the following numbers...texts are welcome as are emails. We wanted to send an early notification so that everyone would have time to start thinking about this a little ahead of time. My sincere "thank you"!
My cell is (308)645-7002 (please text if I do not answer), and my email is email@example.com.

THANK YOU FROM SALLY CONNE & RFL of CHERRY COUNTY....
Dear Tricia & Rodeo Family - WOW, I am touched and tearful. I know Patty was donating the HOPE picture, but I didn't know you were taking up a donation in honor of her. She loves her rodeo family and you have all been so supportive of her through her battle with cancer. Nothing is as great as the love of friends and family when you go through troubled times. The Relay For Life thanks you and all the donors, please pass the word. The kids were great to work with and the picture turned out so COOL.
Thank you again. Sally Connor & RFL of Cherry Co.
THANK YOU FROM ROBERTA SHERMAN....
Dear Mrs. Schaffer - I appreciate your sending the rodeo booklet. I am always interested in the kids from Nebraska. They always prove themselves good sports. I hope. Please count on me again next year for this buckle. Sincerely, Roberta

The 2012-2013 calendar letter is located under the "calendars" tab at left. Then click on "important letter to contestants". This letter highlights the calendar program and gives important dates you need to know.
Felt Back numbers that were sold at both the Junior High and High School finals to the contestants are still available for sale. There are numbers left over that can still be purchased. Family’s get home and remember they forgot or did not have time to purchase the number. All left over numbers are still in the national office.
Your memberships must be received by Becky Dailey no later than one week before the entries close for the rodeo you are entering.
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.
Rodeo Pictures Wanted:
If you have rodeo pictures with contestants from the Lakeside, Hemingford, Alliance, or Hays Springs area, please send them to email@example.com. Make sure you identify the kids in the pictures. Send as many as you have!
