Correction to Wickenburg Minutes

Please see minutes for the Wickenburg Meeting:

#3. Review of limiting 60, 68 tie down and men's breakaway to only entering 2 of the 3 events. Discussion and review of "emergency rule change". By lowering the men's age group to 65+ we opened it up to more entries, then by limiting it to 2 of the 3 events created it to limit entries again. Motion was made by Matt Zappetini to DELETE policy & procedure #45 Contestant must choose 2 of the 3 60s calf events to enter. Second by Kyle Jumper. 13-yes, 0-no. Motion passed. Contestants can now enter any or all of 60 calf roping, 68 calf roping and men's breakaway events if they wish.
