I would like to let everyone know that the board of directors met last week to discuss the concerns we had been hearing about the entry fees being to high compared to other Regions. Some of our board members were in contact with members from other Regions so we could be as informed as possible.  We had a very long and thoughtful debate about what was best for our Region and the majority of our members.  The board at this time has decided that it is in the best interest of our Region to have the entry fees remain the same as they have been for the last few years.  We will have a meeting at Perryton where we will give a little history of how we got to where we are today and what our plans are for the future.  I personally feel we have a great board made up of people who can see things from every angle, not just one side of the coin.  I would like everyone to know that every decision that the board has made has been with the best interest of the kids of Region 1 in mind.  Let's make this a great year for Region 1.

Thank you,

Randy Martin

Our 1st Rodeo of the 2021-2022 Season will kick off Saturday September 11th in Perryton Texas.  We will have a mandatory general membership meeting at 9am and the rodeo will start at 10am or immediately following the meeting. We will run our rodeos on the same format as last year with junior high roping, goats, barrels, rough stock, poles and then high school goats and roping events.  There are a few changes this year, in the fundraising we will no longer require you to sell a region ad for junior high or a tri-state ad for high school.  Also, the finals will be included in the point standing towards the top 10 that make it to state.  Since there will no longer be a just a finals towards tri-state points, there will only be 1 set of awards given this year.  Additional RV & Stall information will be added to the website at a later date.



We've been working on updates/revisions for the 2021-22 rodeo season.  At this time we are going to stay with paper/mail-in entries.  With all of the changes, we thought it best to stay with that for at least the first few rodeos.  Hopefully we will get the online entry system

up and running soon...please be patient with us.  Plans are to have the Entry Forms on the website by the end of the week.  I am excited to join the Region 1 family and look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new members.  If you need anything please don't hesitate to call me.  If I don't know the answer I'll find someone who does.
