A Note to Timed Event Competitors
Wednesday, 04 June 2014 19:53

Some feedback has been shared with the ORA Executive that we would like to share with our members.

One of the reasons stated that our Rodeo Producers are having difficulty sanctioning "full rodeos" is that committees are not happy that competitors clean their trailers out onto the fairgrounds or venue parking and leave a large mess.  In the interests of furthering our relationships with event committees, please be cognizant of the proper areas for disposing of bedding, etc.

Should you have any questions, please consult with the ORA Board.
