NHSRA 10-22-12


The National High School Rodeo Association is hosting their first On Line Stallion Auction. You can check out the feature stallions on Bidding will begin October 1 and proceeds go to the NHSRA.

2012-2013 Calendar Fundraiser

The NHSRA requires each member to sell 10 calendars, due by March 1, to be in good standing with the association. The proceeds from the calendar program go to fund student activities and awards. This program has been successful in the past and there are many benefits for the members. The calendars sell for $20. Each week there is a cash drawing of either $40, holiday drawings of $200 and a $1,000 drawing during the State Finals. This year the cash drawings will be split between the ticket buyer and the student selling the ticket. Buyers and students can be multiple winners. Sell more calendars and you could be a weekly winner! For the NHSRA member, there is a reward program that can benefit each member if they are willing to sell more than the required 10 calendars. Members are eligible to receive rewards in each of the three groups as long as they have submitted their calendar stubs and money by the dates listed. If you need more calendars, contact an adult director or Becky Dailey.

NOVEMBER 1, 2012

Top 2 members with the most calendars turned in at this time will each receive a certificate for a pair of Ariat boots.

Please make sure to legibly complete all requested information on the ticket stub. Make sure that money and ticket stubs balance. DO NOT SEND CASH. Do not staple money to ticket. Send in calendar stubs and money often — we will keep track of the number of calendars you have sold. Members will be responsible for collecting money for checks that are returned because of closed accounts and insufficient funds. You are responsible for payment or the return of calendars not sold. Send ticket stubs and money to Becky Dailey, PO Box 10, Arnold, NE 69120.

The Association will not be obligated to provide calendars to members after March 1st. Any member not submitting calendar monies prior to March 1st will owe the minimum sales requirement of $200 plus a $60 late fee that must be paid before any spring rodeo entries will be accepted. Becky must receive your calendar sales by April 1 to be eligible to rodeo the rest of the season.
