New Updates for this Saturday, November 1 Cutting at West Cal Arena:
- The draw for Fall Cutting 1 serves as proof that contestants are entered in the NCHA Youth Class. Per NCHA rules, the Cutting Judge will draw the positions and Cutting Director Wade Istre will observe the draw.
- The draw for Fall Cutting 2 will be utilized as drawn for the LHSRA only cutting that will be held after the NCHA event is over.
- LHSRA contestants are asked by NCHA to sign in and pay fees at 11:00 AM, so that any required paperwork can be completed timely.
- The first cutting should take place between noon and 1:00 PM and the second cutting will take place at the end of the day, once the NCHA competitions are over, which is projected to be between 3:00 and 5:00. All competition times are approximate.
- Stephanie Rodrigue will collect LHSRA fees at 11:00 AM and direct members to appropriate NCHA personnel for completion of any additional paperwork; as well as prepare Top Ten results after each cutting for awarding of buckles.
- Please be prepared to write two checks: NCHA - $45.00 and LHSRA - $81. There is no jackpot at these two cuttings, so fees will be the same for all.
- Per NCHA procedures, all score sheets are placed in a book by the NCHA Secretary and parents will be welcome to view and take photos of the score sheets.
NCHA Membership is required for the first cutting held in conjunction with the NCHA youth class. LHSRA contestants who are not NCHA members are asked to download the application at http://www.nchacutting.com/forms/memapp.pdf and bring completed form and $15 membership fee to registration at West Cal on Saturday. The required membership category is $15 - Youth - No Chatter. The membership will extend through the 2015 season.
Please bring horse registration papers for the cutting horse to the event. If you are not sure if the horse is registered to a NCHA member, please text a photo of your cutting horse’s registration paper to (210) 379-0450 as soon as possible for review, so that the proper paperwork can be completed prior to the event.
Stalls (with 2 bags of shavings at $8 per bag prebedded) are $46 per stall per night and camper hookups are $30 each per night and must be reserved through Marcy Blanchard at (210) 379-0450. Reservations cannot be made directly through West Cal Arena.
Full western attire is required, including LHSRA back numbers, during these cutting competitions.
LHSRA fees apply at $63.00 per cutting/$126 for both, in addition to any fees charged by NCHA. Please be prepared to write two checks: NCHA - $45.00 and LHSRA - $81. There is no jackpot at these two cuttings, so fees will be the same for all.

Service Projects’ Updates
In addition to all the current and upcoming projects to benefit Colton Rodriguez and his family, we are grateful to the following clubs for their participation:
- The Calcasieu Rodeo Club collected and distributed 87 cans of food to Abraham’s Tent in Lake Charles.
- The Tri-Parish Rodeo Club donated 35 cans to The Welcome House in Maxey.
- The Bell City Rodeo Club collected 182 canned goods and non-perishable items for the St. John Vianney Holiday Food Baskets for the Needy in Bell City. They also collected 441 hats that will be delivered to teen cancer patients undergoing treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
- The Hackberry High School Rodeo collected 107 canned goods and a donation for Colton Rodriguez' expense fund.
Colton Rodriguez Update
We were very happy to see Colton Rodriguez at the Bell City Rodeo for a short visit. We continue to pray for a full recovery and a return to roping soon. Colt will continue his recovery through St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Prayers, prayer requests, and Colt’s name on any prayer lists are all greatly appreciated by Mr. Joe, Mrs. Jessica and Colt. This is at their request and is their primary need.
To help defray the ongoing travel, lodging and associated costs, various fundraisers include:
The CENLA Rodeo Club is selling tee shirts and car decals to offset out-of-pocket expenses for Colton Rodriguez’ family. Tee shirts are $15 each for sizes S, M, L and XL. Sizes XXL and larger are $17 each. The car decals are $5 each.
Hackberry High School Rodeo will have a “Split the Pot” drawing during Friday and Saturday perfs and Saturday slack. The Hackberry High School Student Council is also hosting two jean day fundraisers to benefit Colt and his family.
Other fundraisers are in planning stages and will be posted once finalized.
Cards and letters, along with anyone wishing to directly assist, should be mailed as follows:
Mr. Joe, Mrs. Jessica and Colt Rodriguez
191 Highway 454
Pineville, LA 71360
Most importantly, we pray…

Cowboys and Cowgirls in Service to Others
The Student Officers President Joseph Denison, Vice-President Remey Parrott, Secretary Kati Murphy and State Queen Kayli Meaux, have declared the 2014-2015 rodeo season a year of “Service to Others”, particularly to those in need. Every club is urged to sponsor a non-perishable foods’ drive at each respective rodeo, encouraging members and spectators to participate. A count of all goods collected will be submitted and an award will be given to the sponsoring rodeo club with the largest amount of food items donated. The club may then give the food to any non-profit food bank or association that feeds the needy in their community or the Student Officers will be happy to transport and deliver to Abraham’s Tent in Lake Charles. An opportunity is also being planned for members to actually serve the hungry during the 2015 Louisiana High School Rodeo Finals. Rodeo Clubs are also encouraged to select any other type of service project for their particular rodeo, in addition to the LHSRA service project, if there is interest in other worthy projects. Special thanks to the Student Officers for recognizing the opportunity to give back in service to others!
