Penning Points Sorting Points

Member Info


The CTPA Board has been listening to its members regarding the Open Class. The Board has agreed to change both the Open Classes in the Penning and Sorting for the 2017 Season:

*No handicap * No draw * 6-ride limit*

Added bonus:

An incentive class has been to be added to the Open Class for teams whose riders are rated #4 and below. Incentive teams pay the same entry fee as the Open riders, but $15 of the entry fee will be paid back (100%) to the incentive winners and paid in accordance with the number of teams (i.e., 1- for-10 in penning and 1-for-15 in sorting).

The Board met at length on Sunday, March 12, 2017.
  • The incentive was further discussed as some of the Board members have received several inquiries.

  • To clarify, the penning incentive is a #12 incentive, meaning that any team that is rated a 12 or below will automatically be included in the penning incentive for the incentive pot; a rider does not need to declare a team as an incentive team, it is automatic.

  • The sorting incentive is a #8.

  • There is no additional fee to ride the incentive. The Assn. is kicking in the amount that would have otherwise come back to the general fund of the Assn. and will be treated as added money to the incentive class.

All other classes in Penning and Sorting will have a 6-ride limit, but will retain the requirement of one-draw team.
