PLAYDAY RULES

SIGN-UP

Playdays will start at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday and 8:00 p.m. on Friday.  The arena will be cleared 15 minutes

prior to the start in order to complete the event setup.  There will be no riding in the area during this time. 

You will need to sign up by the time that your class begins.  Late arrivals will be able to ride the first event

only if the event is still set up in the arena.   

 

Coggins Notice: All riders/families participating in a playday will be asked to sign verification that they have the Coggins form (Negative EIA), provide the expiration date and the certificate number. This will need to be included for every horse that is brought to DRC. Having this protects our club from any liability from the state. Unfortunately, if you do not have this or if it is expired we will have to ask you to leave the property. 

 

 

FEES

Barrel Exhibitions - $3.00 per run                  Playday - $4.00 per event           Lead Line - $2.00 per event

Non-Members - additional $5.00 per rider per Playday. 

 

ARENA WORKERS / PLAYDAY WORK LIST

Only judges and workers may be inside the arena during the playday events.  It is mandatory to sign up

to work during each playday at the sign-up table when you enter.  AT LEAST ONE

PERSON PER MEMBERSHIP MUST SIGN UP TO WORK AT EACH PLAYDAY

ATTENDING OR ANY POINTS ACCUMULATED FOR THE ENTIRE MEMBERSHIP

FOR THAT PARTICULAR PLAYDAY WILL BE FORFEITED. 

 

EXHIBITIONS

Tickets will be sold at the sign-up table for exhibitions, and 50 tickets will be sold per playday.  Please

limit to two (2) runs per rider.  Exhibitions can be eliminated at the discretion of the playday chairman.

 

GATEWAY AREA

The area around the gates must be kept clear at all times.  This is especially true for all children.  Please

make certain that if your child(ren) play, they need to do so in the fenced area where it is safe for play. 

This area is located in front of the concession stand. 

 

ALLEYWAY

Riders need to enter from the east side of the alley and exit on the west side.  The rider should enter and

exit with their horse under control, preferably at a walk if at all possible.  At the discretion of the

 judge(s) and ultimately the playday chairman, a rider can be warned and ultimately disqualified for the

event if this rule is not adhered to. 

 

CALL TO COMPETE

A rider’s name will be called three (3) times only.  If unable to make the call, it is up to the rider to

 inform the announcer of the problem (i.e. broken tack or other problems).  If the announcer is not notified

by the third call, the rider will be disqualified. 

 

ANNOUNCER STAND

The announcer stand is off limits to anyone except the playday committee members, event workers, or

those who are specifically requested to come to the announcer stand.

 

LANGUAGE/ALCOHOL

The use of profane language, alcohol, or disorderly conduct of any kind will be sufficient cause for

disqualification from any Denton Roundup Club sanctioned activity.

 

EQUIPMENT

Western equipment is compulsory (i.e. no bareback rigging or pads).  Helmets can be worn at the

discretion of the rider.

 

ASSISTANCE

If the parent of a rider so desires, he/she may be present in the arena to assist the rider for reasons of the

 rider’s safety only.  The rider cannot have any assistance past the timer line to compete in the event unless

 he/she is participating in the lead line class.  Anyone else that has assistance past the timer line will

receive a “no time.”

 

INQUIRY/PROTEST

An inquiry or protest must be presented prior to the start of the next event to the playday committee.

When the committee makes a decision, that decision is final.

 

CLASSES

Classes will run in the following order:

Lead Line, Super Senior, Super Pee Wee, Pee Wee, Junior, Intermediate, Senior

 

Lead Line will run all three events first to complete the class on Friday night.  On Sunday

 afternoon, Lead Line class will run each event concurrently with the remainder of the classes. 

 

RIBBONS

Ribbons will be awarded to the first six (6) places in each event if they are requested upon entering. 

 

POINTS

Points will be given to the current members in the placing order.  Non-members will not be considered

in the awarding of the points.  Points will only count once you become a member and pay dues. 

Any prior participation in playdays will not be counted.  Points received for each event will be as follows: 

1st – 6 pts,  2nd – 5 pts, 3rd – 4 pts, 4th – 3 pts, 5th – 2 pts, and 6th – 1 pt. 

 

YEAR-END AWARDS

 

In order to qualify for the year-end awards, each rider must ride in a minimum of 50% of playdays from date of membship. 

If you join after the season has begun, your minimum number will be adjusted. 

Each single membership is required to work one (1) workday and sell a $25.00 add for the DRC Saddle Show Program. 

Each family membership is required to work two (2) workdays and sell a $25.00 add. 

Each intermediate rider or above is required to work at each attended playday for riders in younger classes.

One (1) adult per membership is required to work (see work list during signup). 

The board will provide a sign-up sheet for workers to document this. 

There will also be a book that needs to be signed and verified by a board member when you complete a workday, which is your responsibility. 

Working during the playdays does not count toward your workdays for year-end awards. 

However, working the DRC Saddle Show will count as a workday for year-end awards.
