With the Fall rodeos just about here,
it will be time to get your rodeo entries in.
Something I have
found to be helpful is to send all of the Fall
rodeo entry forms in at one time. Fill all of your entry forms in and
a separate check for each rodeo, attached to each separate
rodeo entry form. You can date the checks
for the first day of the rodeo you are entering since the checks are not cashed
until the time of the rodeo. This can help to avoid late fines
if you forget the deadline date.
New for 2004-2005 Cattle Cutting Entries
(Boys and Girls)

Cutting cattle event points will not contribute
to the All-Around points except for those cutting event points earned during the
2005 Minnesota High School Finals Rodeo. There are already four cuttings
planned, but watch for other future cutting events.
