An entry fee of $50 for the short round gets you a chance at the $4,500 purse. Amateurs get the chance for a callback from the amateur heading and heeling to the Amateur Elite 10 Short Round, with a $1200 purse. The Amateur Elite 10 Short Round carries a bonus option of each first place on judges cards also receives an invite to the short round. Rules and details will be posted in the show office.

The very popular Ride For A Roll is back, where exhibitors will again be rolling the dice for a chance to win a saddle! amateur roping class placings will roll the dice to win a Jody Ramer custom saddle.
