Qualifier Events- Tie-Down

General Information

Beginning in 2018, the Cinch Roping Fiesta became a PRCA sanctioned event for both Calf and Steer Roping, meaning all earnings won by participants in the invitational events count toward PRCA earnings to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo. The Cinch Roping Fiesta is one of the highest paying stand alone roping events in the country.

While the main events held annually on the last full weekend of October are invitational events, the committee opted to have an open qualifier to allow those not currently ranked in the top of their event the opportunity to compete in the invitational event and earn some great prize money.

The Preliminary Calf Roping has been held for several years in the 1st Community Credit Union Spur Arena. It is held the Friday of the Cinch Roping Fiesta Weekend. For 2020, there will be no Steer Roping Qualifier. The positions will be filled by qualifying positions through rodeos- check with event director FMI.

Ropers must enter through the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo office to enter these events. Neither of the qualifier events are PRCA sanctioned, nor enter through the PRCA. Please see the full list of information for each event below.


The Calf Roping Qualifier also known as the Preliminary Calf Roping will be held Friday, October 29 at the 1st Community Credit Union Spur Arena. Qualifiers from this event will be invited to participate in the Invitational Calf Roping held on Saturday, October 30 at the Outdoor Roping Arena. Ropers must check in by 8:30 a.m., and the roping will begin at 10:00 a.m. sharp.

Entries open Tuesday, September 7 at 8:00 a.m. To enter, call 325-653-7785, or mail in the entry form with check below. Entry fee is $250.00. Entry will not be considered complete until fees are received. Books close Friday, October 22 at 4:00 p.m. Entries are accepted Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. CDT. Refunds will not be given after books close. Limited to the first 120 ropers with completed entries. If 120 ropers have not been met by the close of books, late entries will be accepted until 8:30 a.m. the day of the roping for $400.00. SASSRA will not credit or rebill entry fees, but contestants may convey their entry to another roper with office approval.

The qualifier is open to all calf ropers except those already receiving an invitation to Saturday's Invitational event.

Qualifiers to Invitational Event
There will be five qualifiers advanced to Saturday's roping. All Qualifiers must be current members in good standing with the PRCA. Qualifiers that are too young to be members of the PRCA will be allowed to compete, but no earnings will count toward PRCA earnings.
