ARENA ETIQUETTE: Please make sure that you are using good arena etiquette. Take turns, don't cut others off, make one run then get off of the pattern for next rider, yell heads up if you are going to make a run. If you have young children with you make sure they are on horses that they can control. If you are making ruts around the barrels kick the dirt around for others, and do NOT hog the barrel pattern, please take turns.
Please clean up after your horses. Thank you!
1. To qualify for Club Awards, Club members need to work at 5 out of 8 seasonal races helping with time-only's, gate, barrels, setup, clean up, office, or tear down. Youth can help with set up, tear down, stand outside arena fence for 2nd or 3rd barrel, but cannot help at gate or at 1st barrel for safety reasons. A parent can help in place of a youth, but we encourage our youth to help to learn about putting on races and giving back to their community. There is a Worker Bee sign up sheet at the entry desk to write down what you worked at the race. Please do your part to keep our races efficient and fun for all!
2. Club members need to bring in a $100 of sponsorship money by the November meeting in order to be eligible for club awards and worker bee awards. Please download and print the Sponsorship Packet below to give to your sponsor or fill out for them. You can also get brochures and sponsor packets at ride nights, races, or meetings. Email Kayla Sawyer, email@example.com, with questions and to confirm what sponsorship type is still available (barrel wraps sell fast!).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
When are the meetings held? The 3rd Tuesday of every month. Our meetings run from July to April. Current location is Los Dos Amigos restaurant in Canby.
How many jackpot races do I need to work to receive a year end club award, and Worker Bee award? All members must work 5 of the 8 jackpots. Pee Wees are exempt.
I missed a few races, so I don't think I will be eligible for awards... Not necessarily. Figure out which races you have worked, because the double headers count as two races. So if you work both races of the double headers, it's possible you will still be eligible. Please email our the current Club Secretary (see contact info above).
Is it too late to turn in member sponsorships? Each member must bring in a $100 Sponsorship by the November race. These sponsorships help pay for awards. Youth members must still provide a sponsorship. One sponsorship is required per family membership.
Is it too late to join the club? You can join the club at anytime throughout the season and begin coming to Ride Nights on Wednesdays. However, if you do not get your sponsor money turned in by the November meeting, or if you do not run in 5 of the 8 races, you will not be qualified for Club Awards. But if you just want to join late to come to Ride Nights, that is fine.
Who do I turn my sponsorship form and money into? The current Sponsorship person (see contact info above). You can bring it to a meeting or a race. See Sponsorship Packet above for form and cost info.
I cant remember how many meetings I have attended this year, and how many jackpots I've worked... Always feel free to contact the current Club Secretary (see contact info above).
Thanks! - CBRC
