Proposed Rule Changes

by Admin
Comments are off for this post.

The following rule proposals will be reviewed and acted on by the Board of Directors at their meeting to be held October 2, 2017 in Panguitch, Utah. All or part of the proposed rules MAY be incorporated into the 2018 Rule Book.

  •  NSPRA shall only “co-approve” an equal number of rodeos with CSPRA as CSPRA “co-approves” with NSPRA
  • Bring back Section 8, adjusted points throughout the year will be carried into the finals and combined with any adjusted finals points to determine world champions. I propose to pick your region at the time you pay your membership dues.
  • Any board member or event director who resigns before the end of their term will not be eligible to serve on the board of directors for 3 years.
  • Do not co-sanction or co-approve any rodeos held the same time as a NSPRA sanctioned rodeo.
  • First run on all cattle must be completed before any second run can be drawn.
  • No drop down at the finals.
  • Change 9.4.1 (pg 24). A $20 office charge per contestant will be assessed as follows: $1 judges fee, $.50 secretary fee, $4 to Gen Fund, $6 Central Entry Fee, $2,50 Association Fee, and $5 Awards Fee
  • At a rodeo over a few days, if no times are made, the money from that rodeo rolls over to the next day’s rodeo purse. At the end of the rodeo series, if no times are made, the money rolls over to that year’s finals.
  • If the ground is deemed unacceptable by the event director and/or judges, the contestant will have the option to compete or to draw out. If they draw out they are still liable for their $20 office and the rodeo will count for the finals.
  • Hazer must be at least 40 years old AND hold an active membership in the NSPRA.
  • Policy and Procedures (modify) #27.  Any contestant entered in a rodeo that is cancelled can count that rodeo as one of their five qualifying rodeos, subject to paying the NSPRA fee.
  • Policy and Procedures (New) #28.  Any contestant entered in an event where they are the only contestant entered in that event when the books close and therefore cannot compete per Rule 15.6.4 may count that rodeo as one of their five qualifying rodeos, subject to paying the NSPRA fee for that rodeo. This policy only applies to the specific event and does not allow contestant to draw out of any other events with at least one other contestant.

    The ability for members to be able to win the world and not travel allover the country is a big plus for this association, otherwise why have the region thing at all. The fact is people are working later in life and do not have the ability to travel full time. Have your traveling champion if you want but leave the shootout for the world title, if you are the best you will still win the title.

    Dropping down at the finals just adds more money to the pot which is needed. The drop down just are not in the running for the points and you just skip over them when giving points out not a hard thing to do. Leave the drop down in and in fact make the team roping go twice so its worth going, Calf ropers enter multiple age groups the team ropers should have the ability to enter multiple times to up the money and up the chance to win.

    No reason not to have a side pot 3 or 4 D barrel race at the finals or at every rodeo with the regular barrel race give everyone a chance to win! We also need a over 70 or 75 age group in the barrels you have it in the men’s breakaway you have time off for the older calf ropers you are losing women that still run but can not compete or have the ability to ride 1D horses anymore. If you are going to be a senior rodeo assoc then carter to the seniors

    Sounds great but the roll overs can not count towards standings just as ground money would not count!

    Hazer must be at least 40 years old AND hold an active membership in the NSPRA.

    Why, from the looks of it we could use some more good hazers and horses!

    If a members enters a rodeo and can not go for what ever reason they should be able to send in their entry fees and office fees and count the rodeo for the 5. What difference dose it make whether they compete if they pay their fees just like a no time. We need to be accommodating not exclusionary!

    We need contestants. If the finals do not fill an event let someone enter that dose not have enough rodeos I for one would like to enter a rodeo that is full instead of half full.
    Again if you want your own little association that you can win a title against 5 others and call your self a world champ then keep going like you are going.
    If you want a viable strong association that you can be proud of and proud of your wins and titles open this up and be accessible!

    The trailer race concept is not what an association can be built on. We have a fairly small association right now and to try and make it a national race for the titles will discourage most of our competitors. Award those who want to travel hard and come into the finals with two or three times the points of their nearest rival with an award. But the world champions should come out of a field of three or four per region who have done well in their region and would like a shot at a world title.

      The proposal of bringing back section 8 would be a step backward. Let the world champion be the best roper in the World based on their performance in their designated region combined with their performance at the National Finals. A world champion based on someone who drove more miles and went to more rodeos is not the way to go.

        Doug you are correct its the only reason we have the new members we have. The average person is not able to travel the country and by taking your champion from them you are not truly crowning the best in the event! Only the one that can travel more not compete better!
