Congratulations to the 2017 Committee of the Year - Valleyview & District Ag Society
and to the 2017 Cowboy of the Year - Tyson Utri
In an effort to encourage contestants to enter more Wildrose Rodeo Association Rodeos as a priority throughout the entire year, we are considering changing the format of how we declare Champions in each sanctioned event. The Board of Directors would like to consider changing the current "Sudden Death Finals" to a format more similar to the CFR and the NFR where contestants take their points into the finals and the Champion is determined by a combination of the points accumulated during the season and the points won during the finals. Please note that consideration is being taken to ensure that even if you come into the finals in a lower placing that you still have an opportunity to win a championship. Our intention is to come up with a point system at the finals that is much higher than regular season rodeos which allows for much greater gains in the standings much the same as the CFR or NFR. Please note that these proposed changes are being considered in an effort to strengthen the WRA Financially as well as help our Supportive Committees throughout the province with contestants to put on a show for their communities. The BOD feels that by implementing this change it will entice contestants to enter as many WRA Rodeos as possible to ensure they stay as close as possible to the leader of each event which will obviously help them win a championship. The decision to go this direction is not final and we would like to hear from our general membership before we finalize our decision. Please feel free to share your thoughts, either for or against this proposal with your reasoning by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage you to share your thoughts by Nov 17 as a decision needs to be made well before the start of the rodeo season. Please ensure that your name and WRA Membership number is on your email as you must be a member of the association for your email to be considered
Attention all WRA members - Please read the following proposal and feel free to send in your thoughts as soon as you can!
