2014 - IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL MEMBERS
REGARDING NSPRA RULE CHANGES
* If any CSPRA member wants to also attempt to qualify for the NSPRA Finals (in Las Vegas) they MUST attend and compete at five (5) rodeos which are held on “US soil”. Timed event only or roughstock only rodeos sanctioned by the NSPRA and held in the US will count towards the member making the five-rodeo count.
* There will be increase of $10.00 per event for any contestant competing in more than one (1) event; this fee will go towards the increase in livestock costs.
Any questions regarding the new Region format, the qualifications for CSPRA members to the NSPRA Finals or the increase in fees for multiple event contestants can contact the Canadian Representative Director of the NSPRA who is also the CSPRA Bullriding Director.
* The CSPRA accepts Visa & Mastercard - 5% transaction fee.
* Concerns, ideas, questions or any general information is welcomed by the board. Please contact your event director to find out the lastest information. Director phone numbers are posted and in the monthly paper.
