DE­TAILS

Spin to Win Rodeo - - Letter From Denny -

The lit­tle things don’t get a lot of at­ten­tion, but fun­da­men­tally they have been the back­bone of ma­jor op­er­a­tions for years.

The cor­ner stone of any good rop­ing is cat­tle. We will give you our very best ef­fort to ac­quire and sort these cat­tle, and where pos­si­ble give re­runs when the abil­ity to com­pete is in ques­tion. Re­runs at any ma­jor rop­ing need at­ten­tion, es­pe­cially a rop­ing that is award­ing sev­eral mil­lion dol­lars. There will be a ma­jor ef­fort this year to put mul­ti­ple eyes on ques­tion­able runs.

The debate over bar­rier sys­tems ended a few years back. Rop­ings that have the Priefert WS bar­rier sim­ply get more teams, end of debate. Open rop­ers will not have to use the sys­tem, but the WS sys­tem will be in use in the other di­vi­sions as it sta­bi­lizes the turn zone and evens cat­tle.

Cross­fire is over. There will be no cross­fires at that US NFTR. The USTRC was the only en­tity al­low­ing it. In gen­eral, it does not help the ma­jor­ity of rop­ers, but tends to ben­e­fit only a small per­cent­age who do not need the ex­tra ad­van­tage.

The cap in the #8 rop­ing will be an Elite 4. Plus, Three are­nas will be used where pos­si­ble.

The US In­vi­ta­tion­als will be­come Su­per WSTR qual­i­fiers, fees at $1500/roper; qual­i­fi­ca­tion is op­tional for Las Ve­gas WSTR 2017 or 2018 Fi­nale.

These are just a few of the lit­tle things that will change the ex­pe­ri­ence at the 2017 NFTR. We hope you see some­thing here that you like. We sin­cerely hope you will choose to at­tend one of the most out­stand­ing events of each rop­ing sea­son.
