INFR Introduces the One Round Tour Rodeo for 2014
The one round Tour Rodeo will allow INFR cowboys & cowgirls to compete and go on to another rodeo. Added money won't have to be broken up between long, short & average so the payouts will be better. Money and points will be awarded on one round instead of the traditional format. Rough stock events won't have to draw back for the short round any more.
This is an option for rodeo committees. Especially those with a smaller purse. Some rodeos may consider a combination of the two; the traditional format in the timed events and the new one round format in the rough stock to avoid drawback dilemmas.
Tour Points will be divided as the following:
$2000-$2999 1st place (30 points) in increments of 3 down to 10 places with 10th place being (3 points)
$3000-$4999 1st place (40 points) in increments of 4 down to 10 places with 10th place being (4 points)
$5000 plus 1st place (50 points) in increments of 5 down to 10 places with 10th place being (5points)
Muscogee Creek Nation Festival in Okmulgee, OK on June 27 & 28, 2014 is currently the only one round Tour Rodeo scheduled so far.
TO: ALL INFR REGIONS
FROM: INFR COMMISSION
RE: REGION REALIGNMENTS
DATE: FEBRUARY 26, 2014
After careful thought and consideration to all circumstances with Region 4, Rocky Mountain Indian Rodeo Association (RMIRA), the INFR Commission has approved a plan to realign the geographical region around RMIRA that would better accommodate the members of the INFR in those affected Regions.
The RMIRA has been struggling as a Region for the past few years without experiencing any growth. What concerns the Commission is the fact RMIRA currently has no executive or leadership for several months. The INFR believes this realignment would only serve the interests of all of our members and will help those Regions affected move forward with the INFR.
The realignment will be as follows:
RMIRA will be divided as such: the state of Wyoming will become part of NPIRA. WSIRA will acquire Utah excluding the portion of the Navajo Reservation in that State as well as Idaho south of the 45th parallel. WSIRA will relinquish southern California south of the 35th parallel to SWIRA and the State of Washington to the newly formed Region, King Mountain Indian Rodeo Association (KMIRA). This new Region will also include Idaho north of the 45th parallel.
Again, we hope that this will help all Regions that are affected by this realignment.
If you have any questions, please contact the INFR office. Thank you.
