Updates From The Board

Posted by Arbo on November 4, 2013 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (2)

Just a few updates from the board of directors...


Early in the season, we opened a suggestion box page on the web-site. We always welcome input from the members. We have discussed all of your suggestions at our meetings, and some of them have been implemented. We will be discussing rule book amendments at our next meeting, and some of your suggestions will be taken into consideration then. If your suggestion has not been implemented, it is because the board of directors has decidied that it is not feasible at this time. Thanks for the input!


The annual banquet has been scheduled for Saturday, February 1, 2014. Stay tuned for updates about the banquet. We will be using an electronic registration for the banquet which will be very similar to the rodeo entry forms.

Rodeo Photos

In response to a question about photos from this season.

The photos on this web page...

are posted by members for members.

Please feel free to add some. We all enjoy seeing them. As for other photos, please see the information below that has been posted earlier in the season repeatedly....

I have uploaded the pictures taken at the rodeo to my shutterfly site. The pictures can be viewed at: Gallery URL:

The password is: KJRA2013 (case specific)

The pics are organized by event and the May pics are Weekend 2. Bull Riders: I did not get any bull riding pics from May but I do have pics from June that I hope to get posted in the next few days. Although I took many pics, only a fraction make it to the site as I won't post a picture that I don't feel is of good quality. All profits from the sale of pictures go back to KJRA. While it may seem expensive, the Digital Download is really a great bargain. You dowload the original digital file to your computer and then you can get the prints made at a site of your choosing. You then actually own the photo & can post to websites or social media--anything you want to do with it. KJRA benefits $4.96 from each digital download.
