General Entry Information

For information regarding each CRA event, please see the 2019-2020 Schedule Link.

With Regards to our entry system,
Please note each committee gives the association limits on how many competitors they would like per event.  Once entries are closed the computer does the draw based on the event limits we are given – once the limits are met randomly based on preferences, the remaining competitors are put in the slack.  Throughout this season, in any event, this may happen based on the number of competitors, and the number per event each committee will allow.  Even though members give a first and second preference, due to the number of competitors, you may still draw a third preference. It will be as fair as possible with everyone having their turn drawing a preference they did not choose.

A reminder to the Ladies Barrel Racers,
Read your rule books regarding your barrel duties, it is your responsibility to know and complete the duties.  Fines may be assessed if duties are not completed.
