Minnesota High School Finals Rodeo -- Putting Our Best Feet Forward 


Not just for the members, but for our entire Association.

In order for things to go smoothly, we need to plan well ahead of the trip.  And that means lots of involvement from volunteers.  We need parents, other adults, and good old-fashioned elbow grease to make the year-end rodeo run smoothly.  You do not need to be an officer or director to handle this work -- only committed to making the work happen for our kids.

Consider being a volunteer by looking at this preliminary lists of jobs and needs.  This is only PRELIMINARY and probably incomplete.  Watch for updates!
