It’s hard to believe that it’s time for the USTRC National Finals and NTRL Regionals! We want to wish everyone headed to Oklahoma City the best of luck! Even though there have been a lot of changes taking place since Northeast Regionals in Murfreesboro, team roping is still going strong and there are a lot of events around the region! NTRL will kick off the Priefert Regionals in Campbell, N.Y., at the Osburn Arena on November 11, 2017. We will have a regional in Harriman, Tenn., on November 18-19, 2017 at Roane State Community College. Scott Elliott will be having a regional in Florida. Stay tuned for dates and formats in the November issue. Remember that NTRL Regionals will award USTRC Regional flex earnings to all average winners as well as NTRL National Shoot-Outs to 1st thru 10th of all ropings. Don’t miss the 4th annual Beast of the East in Franklin, Tenn., on October 13-15, 2017. We have allowed anyone to enter regardless of age. If one team member is less than 21, his/her partner has to be over 30! See the ad in the NTRL section. It’s hard to believe that it is time to start planning for NTRL National Finals, but we certainly hope that you are going to join us in Jacksonville, Fla., January 25-28, 2018!
