ATTENTION ALL MIXED TEAM ROPING GIRLS
As we are nearing the end of rodeos for the mixed team roping and finals not far off, I would like to touch base with all of you and fill you in on plans for finals, as it will be here before we know it.
As most of you know, the mixed team roping event requires the help of every mixed team roper girl to make it a successful event at finals. That being said, we have decided to make a few changes in regards to raising money this year. Our goal this year is to make this year's finals the best yet for everyone. It takes a lot of work and time to make this happen and in order for it to work we are going to be asking each roper to raise money towards the finals. We are working hard to have a saddle donated, coats, and more money added to the pot than the previous years. We have already started raising money and coming up with donations but much more is still needed. With this being said it takes the help of everyone.
Each roper is asked to please raise a minimum of $200.00 to be donated to the mixed team roping 2015 finals. $50.00 of this will go towards your finals coat and cost of embroidery as well as shipping and extra cost. This will not cover the entire cost of coats but will help greatly. The rest of the money will go directly to the pot. We are asking that every girl participate and if you end up not making finals your donated money will all go into the pot. If you make finals this year and you do not raise the $200.00 you will not receive a coat. Please be mindful and respectful as to all of your fellow ropers, everyone has worked hard and we need to continue to be a great group of supporting ropers and to keep this event going. Best of luck to everyone at all of the upcoming rodeos and safe travels. Remember, you will rope for what you raise.... If you have any questions please contact Shaley Davis or myself. All donations are DUE BY AUGUST 31! Donations can be given to Shaley or myself. Thanks again everyone!

There was an error in the M-SRA rulebook. Last year rule #6 in the Breakaway section was voted on and passed, but did not specify that it needed to replace rule #5 in that section. Therefore, they contradict one another. During the 2015 season, please ignore #5 and use #6, as that was what was voted on last year.
