If you have not purchased a 2016 WTRC Membership and are planning on entering the Northern States Invitational #5 May 8th; you need to call the WTRC Office (406-348-2460) to verify that your classification number has not changed.
We are giving you fair warning before you travel; please CHECK YOUR CLASSIFICATION NUMBER. Just because you have made the trip, does not mean you will keep an outdated number. Example; you buy your membership the day of the #5, you were a 3+ in 2014 and you are a current 6 with the USTRC. Obviously, you have improved since the WTRC has seen you rope. Another association has seen your improvements and appropriately raised your number. The WTRC would raise your number using the theory they have a better read on your ability than we do because they have been watching you. You will be instantly raised to a #4 roper and you are ineligible to enter the #5. This will probably cause hard feelings because your time and traveling will have been for nothing. We are trying to avoid this problem before it happens so please call the office before traveling.
An outdated card from another association will not suffice
If you are going to show a card from another major association, it has to be current.
If you have applied to get your number lowered in an association and it is not yet final, you will rope at your higher number.
We have access to the WSTR, USTRC, and NTR so they will be the associations we will base your number off of if we have not seen you rope.
Thank you and Good Luck at the 2016 NSI
