As stated above, in 2019 BPIR will operate using its own rules as outlined in the 2019 BPIR Rule book. The book will be available online and a hard copy provided to all BPIR members. In 2019, we will add a new Icon under the Rule Book section called RULE CHANGES to captures any rule changes made to the Rule Book as an easy reference for you.
There are a number of changes and I am highlighting a few that you should be aware of. The changes below are not an inclusive list but just a few major changes:
• BPIR will continue to abide by its own rules for 2019.
• Membership cards must be purchased or renewed PRIOR to competing in any sanctioned rodeo for the rodeo points to count towards 2019 standings. New membership cards will remain at $80 for 2019 and renewal membership cards at $70 (2018 members ONLY). 2018 Rodeo Champions are exempt from paying membership fees. Seniors - 50 years and above must purchase a membership the 1st year for $30. All memberships are free afterwards as long as there has been 5 years of consecutive participation.
• All members and permit holders must be paid 2 hour before rodeo time. If not paid, you will not be allowed on the books once closed. Please read carefully because there will be no exceptions for members or non-members. Once the books are closed, they are closed for everyone.
