THANK YOU TO ALL OF CATPA’S BOARD, MEMBERS, SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEERS FOR A FANTASTIC 2019 SEASON.
To promote the sport of Team Cattle Penning.
To establish and maintain a handicap system that encourages team cattle penners of every age and every skill level to compete in the sport
To promote a pastime that fosters family involvement while setting standards for proper conduct and good sportsmanship.
To constantly strive to improve, enhance and enrich the sport through refinement and innovation.
Sportsmanship -respect your fellow penners, officials and volunteers.
Losing a Hat – losing a hat adds additional time to the length of the show.
Promptness – know your order of go and be at the gate when called. Following your run and/or herd holding, exit the arena as quickly as possible. (Discuss your run outside the arena.)
Herd Holding – hustle to the herd following your run to complete your herd holding duties. Herd holders are to stay in place and exit arena immediately upon the number being called. Herd holders should exit close to the outside walls so as not to interfere with the next competing team and no attempt should be made to bury cattle.
Herd holders should be positioned at the side of the herd and facing the herd so as not to obscure numbers from the next competing team.
