*Each family is required to volunteer time/service at a minimum of 2 performances during the season. There is an opt out fee ($100) available to forgo this requirement and will be collected by the Asheville rodeo.

*Contestants must be in full-dress code including back numbers 1 hour prior to rodeo start time and during the ENTIRE rodeo until the last event is complete or else fines will be charged. 1st Offense is a $25 fine. 2nd Offense is a $50 fine, etc.

*Check in will CLOSE 1 hour prior to the start time of the rodeo.  NO late check-ins will be accepted. 

*Payout  will not be ready for pick up from the office until a minimum of 20 minutes after each event.  If you leave without your payout, it will be held for you until the next rodeo.  You must sign for your payout envelopes.  Click here to see the payout scale used for NCHSRA/NCJHSRA.

*Contestants NOT able to make it to a rodeo in which they have already registered for is responsible for paying those entry fees as well as a "turn out" fee ($55 for bulls/broncs and/or $25 for all other events).  Turn out fees will be WAIVED as a MED OUT only if a note is submitted to the Secretary from a medical (contestant) or veterinary (horse) doctor.  Entry fees are NOT WAIVED.

*During a rodeo which is being produced by another organization (i.e., fair or fundraiser), the "performance" show is only scheduled to be a 2-hr event.  The rodeo producer will determine the events & number of contestants of each event that will perform during that "performance".  All other contestants and events will be run during a "slack" show.  The time of the "slack" will depend on the availability of the arena (before or after "performance" or in some cases, the next day).  You will only need to be present during the show that you are competing in.
