*Hat fine $25
*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.
