Update from the National Office.
Attn all NLBRA members,
As 2020 comes to an end we would like to take the time to thank you all for a very challenging year. This year has brought un foreseen challenges that no one could have ever anticipated. Viruses, storms, and very challenging economic times showed challenges to the rodeo world like never seen before. However, you all supported the NLBRA and made it one of the best years yet, you continue to support your local franchise rodeos and your support has proven once again there are no better families than “Rodeo Families” and for that I would like to thank each and every one of you.
The board continues to meet regularly to discuss ways to improve and make each finals a better experience than it was the year before. They have decided to extend the National Finals out to 13 performances this year. Check in this year will be on Sunday July 4th by 3:00 pm with the mandatory contestant meeting being that evening at 6:00 pm. Rodeo will start Monday morning and run two performances per day through Saturday and finish up on Sunday with the short go. The hope is that this will allow our NLBRA Families to enjoy more time together, allow shorter performances so they won’t have to start so early in the morning and stay up so late in the evening, and take time to visit the local area and attractions. Please note that all entries will be taken online this year for the NLBRA Finals so if you need help or have questions feel free to contact the National Office in advance to prepare for this. The entries will open up in May and remain open for 30 days so continue to watch for updates.
If you put a deposit down on your camp spot during the 2020 finals the deposits will be due no later than January 29th. Remember that deposit is nonrefundable, if you have questions please contact the National Office prior to that date. The regular camping and stalling will open up in March watch for more information to come available on that.
For updates regarding camping and stalling release, upcoming rodeo schedules, current standings continue to check our website at www.nlbra.com or feel free to call the National Office at 719-389-0333 for any questions you have. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
