Ione Barrel Racing Club is a newly formed committee of individuals, looking to provide a central location for our riders of all ages to become part of the arena family and provide a year-end finals for those riders committed and participating in events at the Ed Hughes Memorial Arena.
As a club, our goal is to even out the workload of producing, gathering sponsors, marketing and general help so our barrel races can grow, be successful and in turn, provide great races and awards to all our club members.
Barrel races will still be produced in conjunction with West Coast Barrel Racing Association primed, with co-sanctions to North State Barrel Racing Association, and larger races co-sanctioned with the Women's Pro Rodeo Association.
Each race, an additional $5 will be collected from every run to be used toward the season finals Sept 10, 2022. The season begins December 18, 2021 with the Race Before Christmas. This race will be a double qualifier in attendance points for members.
Club Membership is $60; includes membership vest. Rider's may purchase more than one membership. Your membership stays in that category until the season ends. Rider must attend a minimum of 12 events per membership to be eligible for awards. A minimum of 10 races per membership to attend Finals. Points will be calculated as 10pts on attendance and 1 point for each dollar won. All members will receive a membership card emailed to the address provided on the application. Membership numbers will be added to the rider database.
Our Finals on September 24, 2022 is a sudden death payout, year end awards to top riders (depending on membership count) in each category. Currently there are 23 races scheduled for the season with two double headers. Last day to qualify is September 10, 2022. Our goal is $15,000 added to our finals for the first year, with no entry fee required for members who have met their 12 race quota and brought in a $250 sponsorship.
