Summer Series Rules Updates
Slack RunsContestants who are participating in the FFA Convention rodeo (and their siblings) will be allowed to do a “slack” run in their events at the rodeo prior to the week that will be missed. You must notify the summer series secretary if you need to do this. No other events are eligible for “slack” runs.All Around Awards: 6 All-Around saddles will be awarded to the high point boy and girl in each age group for ALL points earned in ALL events during the summer series. All points received by a contestant will go toward the all-around award regardless of the number of times participated in that event. For example, on the 5th week a contestant can add on an event that he normally does not enter and those points will count toward the all around award but would not make the participant eligible for year-end awards. Tie Down: Junior Tie down contestants only - will have the option for assistance in flanking their calf and if calf is down when they get to it, the calf does not have to be gotten up. Contestant must have both feet on the ground and will receive a ten (10) second penalty for having assistance to flank calf or if they do not get the calf up. AYLAA will assign the assistant for all Jr. Tiedown contestants. If the junior roper does not wish to have assistance, he is responsible before he begins the run to make sure the arena judge is notified that no assistance is wanted. Otherwise, all junior ropers will receive assistance in flanking their calves. Senior contestants may not receive any assistance. Senior contestants also must get their calf up if they are down when they get to it. NO REFUNDS of fees or memberships after you enter without a vet or doctors release.AYLAA Arena UseIf you want to ride in the Arena, please contact The Dixons at 979-319-2062 for access and lights.
