By The WPRA Board of Directors

As the 2017 rodeo season is in its final month, the WPRA Board of Directors would like to thank you for being a WPRA member and bringing all of your passion and enthusiasm to our sport. It takes all of us. WPRA members, over 500 rodeo committees and your association to deliver professional level competition. When reviewing the 2018 membership applications you will see, for the first time in 9 years, we will be increasing our membership prices. Over the past several years, the WPRA has worked hard to absorb operating expense increases (i.e. equipment, utilities, taxes, telecommunications, print, writers, insurance, etc.). At the same time, we have worked to deliver more services, such as RodeoPay, SAF Ground Program, and increases to all circuit award funding and other circuit programs. Our goal is to continue managing an efficient operation and to keep bringing you more membership benefits.

Please note the following information about 2018 membership applications and the 2018 Rule Book.

• 2018 member applications are now available on the WPRA web. Click here to get to them quickly:

• Your membership renewal package, which includes an application, information for the 2017 WPRA World Finals and your Justin Best Footing ballot, will be in the mail on 9/1/2017.

• The 2018 Rule Book is being printed and will be available during the last week of September.

Again, thank you for being a WPRA member and for being part of professional rodeo.
