2020 Here We Come!

2020 Dates- all rodeos will be held at the Crook County Fairgrounds, outdoor arena.

  • April 25 & 26
  • May 9 & 10
  • June 6 & 7
  • July 25 & 26
  • Awards Banquet, Saturday, October 10th
COPWRA’s website has been updated with 2020 Information for Membership, Permit Forms, Entry Forms, and Entry Deadlines!

The vision of the COPWRA is to help create competitive rodeo athletes. In order to do that we can’t accommodate everybody by allowing them to do every event. Based on discussions at our general membership meeting in July, the board had some decisions that needed to be made for the proposed rule changes effective in the 2020 rodeo season.  The COPWRA had their annual board  meeting in October to discuss further and vote on changes.  The decision was made to align the intermediate and senior events to go hand in hand with the Jr High and High School Rodeo Associations. So this mean that our two older divisions (Intermediate & Seniors) will be divided boy/girl. Leaving the two younger divisions (Underage & Juniors) as they are.  We realize this may upset some but as a board we feel this is a much needed move in the right direction for the future of our rodeo contestants.  

Changes for 2020 Rodeo Season

  •  Raking every 10 in the barrels and poles, director’s discretion to change this based on given ground conditions
  • Running through the gate (Goats, Barrels & Poles) will result in contestant being disqualified in that event. No warnings will be given
  • Junior Calf Riding- ride must be  a qualified ride (:06 seconds) for the rider to receive a score and any points in placing. No points are given to non-qualified rides
  • Junior Sled Breakaway Roping- will have a :60 sec time limit or end of arena whatever happens first
  • Sr. Boy Calf Tying- must be two wraps and a half hitch/hooey
  • Intermediate Boy’s and Girl’s Events will be split (team roping combined like seniors)
    • Intermediate Girl Events: Poles, Barrels, Goats, Breakaway, Team Roping
    • Intermediate Boy Events: Goats, Breakaway, Double Mugging Tie Down Roping, Steer Riding, Bareback Riding, Team Roping
  • Team Roping
    • Points are “jackpotted header and heelers together”, based off total times, top 10 placing times get points in order of their  times then receive correlated points in placing.
    • Awards to their highest earned points roping position. If a competitor earns heading and heeling points because they switched positions part way through the season, they will receive year end award in whichever they are highest placing in.
  • Dummy Roping-
    • The pipe box will set at least 12”from back of the dummy.
    • Points will be as follows; 2 points for slick horns, 1 point half head, 1 point neck, no points if entire body of dummy is roped.
  •  Goats-
    • Junior Boys and Girls Goats parents can be on the track to catch their child’s horse (once the contestant is clear of the horse) and to help Juniors remount.
    • Intermediate and Senior Goats does not allow parents to be on the track at all, not to catch or slow down horse or stop horse from crossing the rope.

    • Taking a vote on Sunday at the rodeo office.

The following ideas have been submitted for discussion, directors will further discuss and vote in October.

Rake for barrels and poles every 10 instead of every 7;

  • seems to be a consensus 10 or 12 would be okay and safe for kids to run. Discuss what other associations run, do we keep the age groups the same rakes or our they different.
    Run barrels first in the morning
  • absolutely not, keep rough stock earlier in the day, better for contractor and the stock. Discuss the start time to start an hour earlier for the weekend, or maybe just Sunday.
    Rake for underage barrels and poles
  • add time to the day that we were taking away. There are only a few kids that are going fast enough to tear the ground up, not all going fast enough to justify it.
    Change Underage Goat Tail Undecorating to Goat Flanking
  • you have 3 year olds trying to flank not happening, compared to a 6 year old, handicap the event by age,
  • right now it is teaching them running down dismounting, better to have an event they can be successful for it, shouldn’t make them progress when they are competitive,
  •  the youngest don’t stand a chance to do it.
  • Might add too much time to run the event, finding goats that would be small enough, that is the one event for a younger kid that they can do! Kids like to tie the ribbon and keep it.

 

  • Why do directors and board members vote to make all the decisions.
    • If people feel like they don’t have a voice, they won’t come to the meeting.
    • Having all members vote does not work, they tried it and painful and did not work. It harmed the association and did not benefit the kids.
    • Keep it transparent and the new events added last year that were not mentioned at the general member meeting. Someone’s opinion but they were discussed.
    • People won’t step up because too many of the same names on the board/directors.
    • Is there a possibility to have each director to have a committee to shadow. Blue Mountain community College does this for after a shadow.
    • There is a whole new group of people who don’t know rodeo, and some key people are on their way out that will have to step up. When Thompson’s were out it was an eye opener, who will be shadowing the Roses to know what and how to do it.
    • Create a shadow program for people to learn the upcoming role
    • The volunteer sheets have been great and holding accountable.
    • You elect the directors you want to make the best decisions for the association.
    • If you want a bigger say, be more involved and take on the commitment, there were 5 nominations open tonight and only had one new name added.

Do not hold goats for Junior Boys or Girls

  • Safety issue, remain to hold them, on their horses, other associations it is a struggle, wrapped up in the rope. Like it how it is and think it is working fine.

Intermediate Double Mugging, allowing girls to enter the event

  • We do not have the “even” rule for boy and girls events.
  • Junior High level it’s Girls Breakaway Roping and Boys Breakaway
  • We let them ride steers
  • Girls Barrel Racing and Boys Bareback Riding
  • Structure for Intermediate to change, split them out like seniors.
  • If we keep int. boys and girls competing against each other, then girls can ride steers.
  • Discuss what events intermediates would have if split boys/girls like seniors
  • Leave it the same for intermediates, let girls enter it.
  • If we go that way, the breakaway needs to be split out.

Jr. calf riding has to be qualified ride to place and receive points

  • There are kids going out there to do best they can do it, still trying to do it, gives kids a chance, giving them the confidence to want to keep getting on,
  • when Dani gives points it currently goes qualified points, then to longest time to shortest. Proposed change would be if there was a qualified ride, then no points based on time, if no qualified rides then points on time or to not have points count toward all around, but to event – If you don’t give these kids a chance you won’t have intermediates and seniors, other associations the stock is more rank, this is a measurable option to place contestants
  • The kids have come along ways and improving in this entire rodeo, rough stock kids will ride, if you have a roper kid that enter the rough stock
  • The number one gets qualified rides but isn’t at the top because others who haven’t qualified getting points.
  • breakaway roping pack two loops, no re-building OR – Jr. breakaway roping change to a :60 time limit
    • -next level they don’t get to rope second loop unless packing it, learning step for parents too.
    • Set a time limit and let them rebuild.
    • An idea was giving to the High School Rodeo Club to put on a timed event clinic.
    • Intermediate breakaway time limit is :45sec discussed appropriate time for juniors

– Senior boy calf tying, specify in rule book, must be two wraps and a hooey/half hitch

  • It should be the same as the calf roping for the seniors.
  • There is a reason it’s two wraps, ask current director why it is.
  • Needs to be clarified in the rule book.

All team roping, clarify in rule book, how the placings will be all jack-potted together or keep header and heeler placings separate.

  • If you switch during the year it screws up points, have to designate it.
  • First is first, not by heading and heading.
  • It needs to be like it was, leave it like it this year.
  • There are parents that can rope it quicker and set it up for the
  • Let them enter half way thru the year and switch ends
  • Can’t switch thru the year
  • Let them enter each rodeo header and heeler
  • How do you let them switch in the year, qualify for both awards in each year end, how does the award budget afford it?
  • Fastest time wins, then you can let them switch during the year.

– All goats, clarify in rule book, parents can be on the track in Underage Goats to catch horse before contestant dismounts without incurring an “assist” and

  • Junior Boys and Girls Goats parents can be on the track to catch their child’s horse (once the contestant is clear of the horse) and to help Juniors remount.
  • Intermediate and Senior Goats does not allow parents to be on the track at all, not to catch or slow down horse or stop horse from crossing the rope.
  • Add it do the rule book, no changes.
  • Increase fees $5 and have it payback each rodeo / per day
    • Other associations do it and kids love getting money each weekend
    • Add an “award” fee per year per contestant
    • Would it be optional to enter the jackpot as a sidepot
    • Dani said it’s someone sitting in office all day long and entering results as it happens, then results and payouts.
    • Takes the man power; takes 2 to 3 to make it happen
    • Kids get their checks at the next rodeo
    • Fees are good right now
    • Some kids leave with getting something
    • Sidepot an event, parents can pay an extra expense for this and it’s an optional for them.
    • Look into what a software can do
    • Scale back on awards and jackpot
    • Awards are the reason people come back
    • People drive a long way because of the awards, don’t take it away.
    • Jr High pays out minimally it costs 3x more to enter than you win.

Dummy Roping move the box away from the dummy, make them have to throw their rope, not just lob it on. Move it back a foot, two or three.

  • Tall kids’ it is hard to catch it so close
  • Easier for the judge
  • Have to let go of their rope
  • And not hook it on the horn then pull it tight
  • Would actually have to rope the dummy
  • What is the point if it’s they’re not learning to throw their rope

Dummy Roping Points

  • 2 points (slicks horns) and 1 points (half head/neck)
  • A kid can rope one time, miss twice catch slick horns and get as many points as a kid that catches all three around the neck.
  • Weighted based on the number of catches, then to the points

Steer Riding and Calf Riding, Bareback Riding

  • States in the rule book if you have one handed rigging you have to ride one handed. Two then two. Needs to be corrected because if they blow one out then they are disqualified, fix it. There is a kid using a one-handed bull rope riding two handed. Doesn’t matter how it’s started, if you make the ride… still no score.
  • Meeting was adjourned at 8:00pm

!!!!!Rule Notifications!!!!

Some rule changes were decided on mid-season due to safety concerns (Alcohol & running from outside the gates) and practicality (60 sec vs 15 secs), and that it came to the Board’s attention that three event situations did not have specific wording in the rule book, but have operated on past precedence and will continue to operate this way throughout the 2019 season until a rule addition or change is proposed, discussion is allowed at the General Membership meeting in July, and voted on by Board of Directors in October.

  • Amended in the Rule Book effective for 2019 Season
    • Rider has :60 sec to enter arena on their horse from the time the announcer calls their name (not :15sec) (page 11, #2)
    • No alcohol inside or near the arena (page 7, #17)
    • No running horse from outside of or thru gate ( page 11, #5)
These event situations include:
  • Senior Boy’s Calf Tying: contestants are and have been verbally reminded that ties include two wraps.
  • Parents can be on the track in Underage Goats to catch horse before contestant dismounts without incurring an “assist”  and Junior Boys and Girls Goats parents can be on the track to catch their child’s horse (once the contestant is clear of the horse) and to help Juniors remount.Intermediate and Senior Goats does not allow parents to be on the track at all, not to catch or slow down horse or stop horse from crossing the rope. 
  • Team Roping: past precedence in regards to points given show that points are given to Headers and Heelers separately (10 to fastest Header and 10 to fastest Heeler).  Again, there is no wording for these past, accepted practices and until the general membership meeting in July to add or change the rule book, we will operate according to past precedence in regard to these events.        
If you have a suggestion for COPWRA or Rule Proposal or anything you would like discussed please send to info@copwra.org or submit form on website before July’s rodeo weekend.
