5 PM – 9PM – 30 MINUTE TIME SLOTS WITH BARRELS – 15 riders max per slot
$15 per Horse – PAY AT SIGN UP
Office Hours on Thursday will be all day – as I’ll be around, but it is also a day of set up for us so I might not specifically be sitting at the office desk every minute of the day – which will be located below the crows nest on the south west side of the building. You can come find me as I will be somewhere in the building – setting up the booth – taking money at the door or preparing lunch.

Friday September 28th:
8 AM – 5PM – Exhibitions – $5 PAY AT THE GATE – You will be able to sign up in 30 minute increments of your choice with Ashley Buffington or Mike Boomgarden at the gate.

OFFICE HOURS: 8AM – 5PM – You will be able to late enter the WHIP N SPUR FIND THE CURE SLOT RACE up until 5pm on Friday with NO LATE FEE – this is for a good cause and I know it’s hard to decide to Pre enter an expensive race, but it will pay like a slot machine – we had 63 entries last year and we will not be cutting them off – the more the merrier! So come enter up on Friday if you didn’t already pre – enter the SLOT RACE.

I will allow peewees only to ride around in the arena with no barrels from 5pm-5:30pm to get their horses used to everything and then clear the arena to get everything raked and ready to go!

PEEWEES RUN AT 6PM SHARP
Awards to Follow
Slot Race will start tentatively at 7pm!!!! SLOT RACE RUNNERS CARRYING OVER THEIR TIME TO FIRST GO WILL NOT RUN ON SATURDAY AT ALL – ONLY SUNDAY FOR 2nd GO – IF YOU TIP THAT MEANS YOU WILL HAVE A NO TIME FOR SLOT AND YOUR 1st GO TIME – NO RERUNS – carry overs must be determined before the start of the race – after race starts we cannot change!
**There will be a BEST DRESSED award so make sure you deck yourself and horse out in PINK – get creative this is meant to be fun!!! We will also have a silent auction set up where all proceeds will go to the PRAIRIE CENTER in Sioux Falls where numerous rodeo families receive their treatments! Alex’s Lemonade Stand will also be set up – you can get lemonade and balloon animals as free will donation with all proceeds going to benefit Childhood Cancer. Come join in on the fun!

WEST FEST AWARDS will happen at the completion of Go 2. Must be present to win the horse trailer!! Other awards can be picked up if you designate someone to get them for you – PRIZES WILL NOT BE MAILED.

Absolutely NO REFUNDS this year – so many people want a refund after the race has already started and after we start your money is already accounted for in the pot – you can sell your spots or swap horses out if need be. Just let me know.

STALLING OFFICE WILL BE HANDLED BY THE FAIRGROUNDS THIS YEAR NOT MY STAFF – So please do not come to me asking for money back or anything about stalls – they will take care of you outside at the stalling office. They will have a number posted in case you arrive after hours so that someone can let you in. Those of you that prepaid for stalls and hookups will be guaranteed your spots you wanted and your special recommendations – those of you that don’t prepay that is out of my hands!

WE will have a VET on site to do health papers – Dr. Ismay and staff will be available starting at 3pm on Friday and 3pm on Saturday and as needed we can give him a call. Health Papers are required when stalling at the Central States Fairgrounds.

Any questions please email me at wagonpinperformancehorses@gmail.com – please do not Facebook message us as it is super hard to keep track of those having numerous administrators. I’d rather you email me or text me at 605-685-4182. That is the easiest way for me to keep track of everyones questions and requests. Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you all in two weeks!!!
