The 2018 rodeo season will see a few changes. The first change to note - we will no longer be awarding saddles in the added events. The aim is to increase the payouts for these events, and for all events, at the 2018 Challenge. The second change that will be made is to the format of the 2018 Challenge. The Finals will no longer be sudden death. The Board is still looking into what this will look like exactly but the aim is to award the people that have hit the trail and accumulated the most points while also encouraging our competitors to enter more of our WRA Rodeos. The third change is to the roughstock competitors. We have removed the rodeo count for these events. The fourth change is to the mandatory minimum entry fee. Some members had expressed a desire to see us increase our minimum entry fee to be in line with the LRA. As such, our minimum is now $75 in the major events.
