CJCA Update 6/4/2020

Dear CJCA Members & Contestants,

It’s with a heavy heart that the CJCA Board is announcing that the remaing 2020 Rodeo Season is being canceled.

This decision was not easy for the board to come to terms with, but the uncertainty of times in California, and the current COVID19 situation, has unfortunately left us of without any options. At this time the State of California and the Counties we operate in are still under the SIP orders leaving us without the ability to operate as normal.

Please know that our President, and CJCA Board Members, have worked extremely hard at watching the SIP orders and exhausted every angle we could think of to avoid cancelling.

We are now going to begin to look forward. CJCA is looking forward for our association, contestants, and members.

Here’s what we know at this time:
1. The 2020 CJCA rodeo season is officially over & plans for the 2021 season are going to begin.
2. The points from the January & February rodeos will be used to calculate member’s end of the year awards & placements for members.
3. We are planning our CJCA Awards Banquet and Dinner for Saturday, August 15, 2020, at the Cottonwood Barn in Woodlake, California and hoping the SIP order will be lifted for us to be allowed the opportunity to come together for a banquet.
4. Information regarding the banquet will be coming to you soon from our Banquet Director, Tammy Lea.
5. The CJCA treasurer is going to begin working on returning entry money paid for the March rodeos that were canceled. This is a process & will take a little bit of time to complete.
6. Please remember if you are a member, and trying to qualify for an end of the year award, your 2020 sponsorship deadline is due to the Rodeo Secretary no later than June 20, 2020 to qualify for end of the year awards. Sponsorships can be paid online on the CJCA website.

Thank you again for all your patience & consideration during this difficult time. If you have any questions please contact us.

Tanya Lyon
CJCA Rodeo Secretary
