West Coast Barrel Racing Association will produce and sanction open 4D & 5D races. 1D being the fastest time of the race. 2D is .5 seconds added to the fastest time. 3D is the fast time plus 1.0 second and the 4D is fastest time plus 2.0 full seconds. A 5D format shall be set up at all .5 second increments. Some arenas have different scales but must be approved by the office.
The executive office will determine eligibility and has the right to refuse membership. General membership fees of $65.00 include the enrollment of 1 horse, a member ID for the paid year, and eligibility to run at West Coast Barrel Racing Association (WCBRA) approved races and the finals (“The Richest Race In The West”). Enrolling additional horses will cost $45 per horse. There is no limit to the number of horses a member can enroll. Discounts have been extended to those who have had a paid membership consecutively since the first year (2010). These discounts are a courtesy and management reserves the right to remove them at any time. Memberships are active as of the date postmarked (when mailed in) or the date of the race in which the producer collects them with full payment.
The 2017 Youth will be strictly a side pot during The Richest Race In The West finals only for awards. Youth riders must be a qualified member similar to any other member and entered in the open. There will be no year end awards for Youth.
A second youth division, classified as “Juniors” will be run as its own race at the finals for those NOT entered in the open. The requirement for entering as a Junior is to purchase a membership, no qualifiers needed.
Barrel racers at WCBRA prime sanctioned races will pay a $5.00 fee at each WCBRA race they attend per horse (both members and non members). Entering a minimum of 10 races is mandatory to compete at the 2016-2017 Finals Race to be held Labor Day weekend, 2017 at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds in King City, CA. The $5.00 finals fees paid at each race ensure WCBRA points toward the year-end standings.
The $5.00 finals fee is YOURS. YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO GET IT BACK! Each finals fee will go directly into the added money for the finals race. WCBRA will guarantee a 3-day race with a minimum of $5,000 added money each day. The fees you pay as a barrel racer throughout the year now, guarantee a way to run at a fantastic finals barrel race! WCBRA will also be tracking money won (converts to points) and attendance for members throughout the year. There will be year-end awards at the end of the year based on money won and attendance
To receive a time at a WCBRA race YOU MUST MAKE A COMPETITIVE RUN! This means, if you miss your run or turn out, you will not receive an attendance or points.
Knocked over barrels will result in a no time. Checks will not be awarded for knocked over barrels.
WCBRA Producers cannot take more than 30% of the entry fee. It is suggested that the only additional fee accessed the barrel racer is the $5.00 finals fee. Other fees (timer’s, points, etc., etc.) are ultimately up to the individual producer, but in an effort to eliminate the mass amounts of additional fees, please keep the add-ons to a minimum.
WCBRA paid places and payout is determined by the total number of riders, fees and added money. Last hole in the 4D/5D is required to pay a minimum of the entry fee paid to enter (less the $5 WCBRA finals fee).
Each WCBRA race attended (with paid $5.00 finals fee) counts as 50 points. Money won converts to additional straight points ($50.00 = 50 points). Points will be audited by a third party bi-monthly. Please note that year-end awards points will not be counted until a membership has been completed, received and approved.
Members who have a single horse on their membership are eligible for 1 year end award (1 horse equals 1 award, 2 horses equals 2 awards). Members will only receive credit for the number of horses membered in each race. Example; on a single membership, even if you run MULTIPLE horses, you will get credit for ONE horse in the race. You cannot run two horses on a single membership and count them both.
Points will be regularly updated on the website. Riders must declare any point discrepancies within 60 days of the race in question via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Points will be audited by a third party and are subject to change. Management reserves the right to make point adjustments as they see fit and fair.
Year-end points as presented at The Richest Race In The West will be final.
All members and those associated with WCBRA are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated and could result in minimum fines of $100.00 or suspension of membership. Abuse will absolutely NOT be tolerated.
NSF checks will result in up to a $50 fine and the member being put on an ineligible list. No points will be awarded until the check has cleared and the bank fees paid.
The WCBRA Finals will contain a detailed set of rules, released closer to the end of the year similar to years past. Each entry into the finals will be notified of these rules and have to acknowledge the receipt of such. Remember, these rules are in place for the safety and professionalism of our sport.
Rights of the WCBRA
