Calendar Comments

The SDHSRA Annual Meeting will be held on September 26, 2020 at the Pierre Ramkota, beginning at 9:00 am CST.  I would greatly appreciate it if you would continue to volunteer your time to check out SDHSRA calendars to the members of this great association.
If you do not intend to do so, please call or email me right away at 605 433 5483/ This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Enclosed with this letter are the check-in sheets and a sample script you can give to each member. The policy will be reviewed at the annual meeting.  It is particularly important to keep track of how many calendars you are handing out to each member. I always write down their name, the date, # of Calendars and a cell phone# to contact them, if need be.  Each member must sell six calendars and return any unsold calendars to you or myself by March 1, 2021 to be able to rodeo in 2020-2021.

Encourage your members to sell and turn in the money right away so their names get in the drawings.  It is advised to mail a check or money order and DO NOT send cash.  Feel free to check with me to see that I have received any money and stubs, to help track them. Again, and I cannot stress this enough, it is very important to keep track of how many calendars you are handing out to each member.

If a member is planning on selling more than 6 calendars, please only give them 10 at a time and make sure they have sent their money and stubs in or that they have given it to you to send in, before you give them any more calendars.   Do this unless you know they will sell more - Use your discretion on this – you know those that sell the 30 right away, but you have to be able to get those back if needed.  We do not want to prevent sales but must try to keep members from holding on to calendars and not selling or turning them in until the deadline, when others need them.  Please provide me with a list each month or more frequently, if you like, of the members that have checked out calendars.

Please email or call me with the number of Calendars you need before the September 26th meeting, I will have them ready for you to pick up there.  If I do not hear from you, I will go off your last year’s totals.  If you are unable to attend the meeting, please arrange for someone to pick up the calendars, and let me know who that is.  If your contact information has changed let me know that as well so I can change it on the website for the members to reference.

I want to thank you very much for helping distribute the South Dakota High School Rodeo Calendars. The Calendar Sales fund the whole SDHSRA.  They help to fund our National Team, Scholarships, Prizes for members and to promote South Dakota High School Rodeo.  Please make your members aware of this!  Plus, they are a great archive for SD High School Rodeo.

If you need additional calendars or have any questions, please contact me at my home 605-433-5483; cell 605-454-5507 (cell service does not work within our home) or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
