1) The deadline for renewing members is April 30. A late fee will be applied to memberships received after this date. You must have your membership paid prior to competing.
2) All sanctions have to be pre-entered. Team entries must be received on/before the Monday preceding the show. Email entries to Shirley Smith at email@example.com.
3) Entry fees for sanctioned shows will be as follows: $35 ($105 per team) per entry. This will remain the same for the finals. If there is a specific youth class being offered, the entry fees will be $30.
4) We are offering a Limited 8 class within the Open class at each sanction penning for an additional $30 per team.
5) There will be a 2+ non-sanctioned class offered at each show. Two riders rated #1 will be paired with one rider rated a #3 or higher. This will strictly be a draw class. Entry fees are $20.00 per person.
6) The separate Draw class has been eliminated. Contestants may draw into the following classes: #10, #7, and #5. Contestants are allowed a maximum of 4 picked teams per each of these classes. If you enter any of these classes with 1 or more picked teams, you are required to enter a minimum of one draw team up to a total of 5 teams. A contestant may enter the draw with all 5 teams if they choose.
7) The annual meeting will be held at the finals. Members will still be required to submit items for the agenda by email prior to the meeting to Shirley Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
8) Contestants will accumulate points at each sanction and the finals for making it to the second go. There will be individual points awarded as well as team points for the entire season. There will be prizes for high point teams in each class. There will be an overall individual high point prize as well as high point #1, #2, and #3+ penner.
9) The $200 sponsorship levy is still applicable. It only applies to members who are planning to attend the Provincial Finals. You need to send a separate post-dated check with your membership fees. The STCPA will hold this check until the finals. You can redeem the check back by getting a sponsorship totaling this amount or more. Please contact Shirley 306-937-2733 with any questions.
YOU CANNOT PEN AT THE FINALS UNLESS THIS LEVY HAS BEEN PAID BY ONE OF THE ABOVE TWO OPTIONS. You must have penned at a minimum of 3 sanctioned shows to qualify to attend the finals.
10) Workers will be assigned to assist with various jobs at each show. If you cannot fulfill your duties, you are responsible for finding a substitute.
11) Payouts for each show will be based on the number of entries at each penning. Minimum payout is 50%; maximum is 60%.
12) A handicap will be applied in the first and second go of the 5, 7, and 10 classes. For example, if the total team rating in the ten class adds up to 8, two seconds will be deducted from their time.
13) All runs are 60 seconds.
