CLASSES ARE THE PRODUCERS OPTION...Handicap classes will be run this year at Flash Bar Farm
Arena
and Missouri State Fair. ..ie, in a #9 HC class, if 2 - #2 riders are a team, the combined rating is 4,
therefore they will get an extra 5 seconds (#9-#4= 5) to sort their cattle. This team will also receive a
5 second deduction from their final time once the run is completed, ie 9 cows at 63 seconds - 5 seconds =
9 cows at 58 seconds.

Producer has option of basing handicap on highest rated team entered in that class, ie 2 - #4 riders
would then make the #9 handicap a #8 class for handicap calculations. See rsnc.us website for further
explanation of the handicap system.

-The cost per class is the promoters option. All RSNC classes are 1st go + Short Go. All MOTSA
weekend classes are one go.

We appreciate the comments thanking us for a good show at the 2014 Missouri State Fair. Naturally we couldn't
have good shows without good participants.
The Missouri Team Sorting Association was started in 2005 so next year is our 10th anniversary.
Our mission has always been to offer a level field of competition while offering recognition of achievement. Many
MOTSA competitors have won their first buckle or trophy saddle pad while competing and riding for year end
awards.
These awards are funded by the members through affordable membership and minimal day fees. Over the years,
all of these funds have been paid back to the members either through the purchase of awards or added money at
the Finals. 4 shows are needed to qualify for each year’s finals. The 2014 State Fair shows count as 2014 Finals
qualifiers.
We hope to see you at the 2014 Finals, September 27, Flash Bar Farm, Bay, MO.
More details to follow. This show will be also open to all, but only those qualified will be eligible for the added
money.
We thank you for your comments. Above all, we value the many friends made over the years. We will always
honor our commitments.

Paul & Linda

Final note: MOTSA promoters only make money through fees for cattle charges.
  •               The annual State Fair Bonus Money Round is funded by the promoters     and sponsors and not
    membership or day fees.
After paying for 2014 year end awards, there will be $1100 total added money at the
MOTSA Finals,
September 27, 2014, 10 am at Flash Bar Farm Arena.
ENTRY FEES WILL BE THE SAME AS THE REGULAR SEASON SHOWS.

Those previously qualified by attending 4 shows (including the 2014 State Fair shows) will be
eligible for the added money. However this show is OPEN to ALL, and even if you are not
pre-qualified, you will be eligible for High Money awards by attending this show. There will also
be a RSNC show prior to the MOTSA Finals.

Once again, congratulations to the Missouri Team Sorting Association year end high point
winners.
