RE: 2020 Card Holders and 2020 MSFR


The MSRA Board of Directors held a conference call meeting on June 11, 2020. In attendance were President, Joe Crawford; Vice President, Steve Shattuck; Steer Wrestling Director, Becky Reaume; Bull Riding Director, Trent Martin; Team Roping Director, Tye Casey; Stock Contractor Representative, Stuart Pletcher; Barrel Racing Director Kalleena Vanhouten; Contract Acts Director, Seth Madry  and Judges Commissioner Randy Frost. Absent, Tie Down Roping Director, Kayla Keller; Bareback Riding Director, Bronc Fletcher and Saddle Bronc Riding Director Trace Hughston. This meeting was to vote on the following changes for the 2020 rodeo season to be effective immediately.

  1. The 2020 MSFR will be cancelled.

  2. Cards purchased for the 2020 rodeo season will carry over to the 2021 rodeo season. No additional card will need to be purchased in 2021. All cards purchased in 2020 will be a 2 year rodeo card for the price of a 1 year card. The status of the card you hold in 2020 will carry over for the 2021 rodeo season.

  1. Rookie Card purchased in 2020 will continue to be a Rookie in 2021

  1. All money earned during the 2020 year, after the purchase of your card, will be carried over for the 2021 rodeo season and count towards the 2021 MSFR qualification.

  2. Rodeos attended in 2020 will count towards the rodeo count for the 2021 rodeo season.

  3. There will be no refunds of the 2020 membership.

Our region has been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The continued gathering limits/restrictions coupled with the ongoing economic impact has forced a majority of our rodeo committees to cancel their 2020 events. Please continue to check the MSRA website for the latest rodeo updates. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding in these trying times. We look forward to seeing everyone down the road soon.
