KPRA Creates System to Ensure Optimized Payouts
KPRA will begin implementing a process to have all contestants (members and non-members) maintain a credit/debit card on file with the KPRA office. Your card will NOT be charged for your rodeo fees. However, it will be used as a guarantee in the case that you turnout and do not pay your fees/penalties within the 7 day grace period as stated in the KPRA Rulebook. This process will allow each rodeo secretary to include those entry fees as part of the payout and help eliminate the fine list as well as optimize the money that goes back to contestants.

She cared so much about all of her rodeo people and was such a promoter of Rodeo and the “Rodeo way of life.” Everywhere you turned, she was there, no matter if it was pushing calves, hauling stock, telling you to keep your tip down, or just smiling and telling you better luck next run! She was a classic, a real spit fire of a gal, who loved her family and watching Tia and Rusty rope more than just about anything in the whole wide world.
