After much discussion, the rule for Western Attire (cowboy hat, long sleeve shirt, jeans, boots and back number) will remain what is stated in the "Nebraska Rules" for the Qualifying Rodeos for the contestants.  Look it up---the Nebraska rules are in your Student Directory or can be found on our web page.  This rule applies to the contestants.  Parents if you are assisting your student member, you need to be in western attire.  Jim Buss moved to reinforce the rule stated in the “Nebraska Rules”, seconded by Mark Wray.  Motion carried.


We encourage local committees who are hosting the rodeo that their volunteers are in western attire if they are going to be in the arena.  This would, also, apply to photographers in arena.  NHSRA Rule Book, page 28.6.a.

Discussion on pens not being taken down at the rodeos.
