Can I compete if I am not a member of the NCHA?

If you are not a paid up member of the NCHA then you can only compete in the Beginners, Snaffle Bit, Rookies and Youth as a DAY MEMBER. As a day member you are required to pay a fee of $35 per event per day..

You are also required to sign a Non Members Waiver form. It would be appreciated if you could do this before the show and hand it to the Club Secretary before you compete. To download the form click here.

When do I have to pay my entry fees?

The SCCC is an affiliate club of the NCHA and as a result we are required to follow the NCHA rules and regulations. It is clearly stated in the NCHA rule book that all entry fees are paid at the same time of entry.

No competitor will be allowed to compete at any SCCC show if the entry fee has not been paid in full. If you pay your entry fee after the show draws have been made public you can enter as a late entry and you will be placed at the end of the first available herd and no extra cattle will be added.

What is a late entry?

A closing date for acceptance of nominations is always advertised in the NCHA Chatta or on this website. Any entries that come in after that advertised date is declared a late entry.

Under NCHA rules and regulations a late entry shall be placed and the end of the first available herd and no extra cattle are required to be allocated for that entry.
