There are plenty of places were the fees are higher whether that includes a non-member fee or not. How many rodeos can you go to if you don't posses a membership? There are plenty of sacrifices made when it comes to cost and barrel racing - let's face it whether you go hard all summer or you jackpot all summer it is costly. This is a great jackpot with great ground and added money if you really want to enter up then you would either buy a membership or pay the non-member fee and go run barrels.

I did talk to the secretary last night, this is what you need to do.....
1. fill out you memebership and get to the post office by the 27th
2. at the jackpot (this weekend) you will have to pay the $25/horse fee. the girls will have a list of memebers to check, bring your memebership card and save the hassle of searching thru sheets of paper to find your name!!!!
4. when the ABRA recieves your $$ they will double check the post mark day, if it's on or before the 27th the ABRA will reimburse your "non member fee"
