FUNDRAISERS for 2014-2015:
In 2014-15 the fundraising requirement to qualify as a member in good standing in our Association has changed.  This fundraising requirement will be equal for all members no matter where you live and it will generate more funds for the Association needed for rodeo expenses, crisis funds, year end awards, etc.  This year's fundraiser will include the sale of tickets for a Utility Vehicle.  (exp. Gator, Polaris, etc.).  The board is currently working on the details and purchase of the utility vehicle.  We will plan to have more specific information on the actual vehicle being used in the fundraiser and your fundraising packets available to be picked up at our Emporia Rodeo, Oct. 25/26, 2014. 
Each member will be required to sell 50 tickets at $5.00/each.  The first half of your ticket money must be turned in by January 1, 2015, and the second half of your ticket money will be due by May 1, 2015.  
If you have any questions please feel free to contact a board member or Fundraiser Committee Chairman – Stephanie Newell.
