SDHSRA CONTESTANT BACK NUMBERS
Contestant back numbers will be sent out with your spring rodeo packets. This will be your permanent number throughout the rodeo season. Please wear this number to all your practice high school rodeos, the regional rodeos, and the state finals. We will enclose two numbers for you to use for your rodeo season. You will receive a new set of numbers each spring to be used for that season.
WE ARE SUGGESTING THAT YOU LAMINATE THESE NUMBERS TO PROTECT THEM THROUGH THE RODEO SEASON!!
Be very careful when laminating your back numbers. You cannot use hot lamination or the numbers will melt. Use cold lamination and be careful.
The SDHSRA Board has agreed that if your number is torn, mangled, destroyed and you can turn it in, a new number will be provided to you at no cost. However if you lose your number, it will cost you $3.00 to have that back number replaced. You will note that your back number corresponds with your NHSRA Membership number and this number will be your permanent number throughout your High School Rodeo Career! Please take care of your number!!
If your number is lost, stolen, destroyed, etc. please contact the SDHSRA State Secretary as soon as possible.
