UPDATE: We have changed the entry limits for the 2020 Nationals as follows: 14 class-5 teams to 6 teams  per rider 10,7,and 5 classes-4 teams to 5 teams per rider Open Shootout- 4 teams to 5 teams per rider 8 shootout-1 team to 2 teams per rider Those teams already entered for an extra ride in the Open and 8 shootouts have been moved from the draw entry to the shootouts. The entry deadline is August 24 with no exceptions.

We have been getting a number of questions regarding the regulations related to Covid-19 and how they will affect our event in October,2020. The rules as mandated by the City of Calgary , effective August 1,2020  people will be required to wear masks in all “public places”. It is our understanding  that the arena, warm up arena and barns are considered to be public places, therefore anyone entering these buildings will be required to wear a mask. It is also our understanding that when competing a mask will not be required. The conclusions we come to from all this is that you will be allowed to remove your mask when warming up your horse and when in the main arena competing , but at all other times a mask must be worn when in any of the buildings. The rules we must follow are provided by the City of Calgary, Alberta Health Services, and the Province of Alberta not the Calgary Stampede Board or CTCPA. These rules seem to change weekly , so there is no guarantee that the rules just outlined will not change between now and October.

Thank you for keeping us all safe .
