RSNC World Series
Ranch Sorting National Championships (RSNC) has grown quickly this past year. They are excited to announce that big rewards will be dished out in their World Series of Ranch Sorting.
This will be a true qualification program to crown World Champions within the sport of ranch sorting. It will be done through RSNC sanctioned events all across the US and everyone can participate with prizes being awarded all along the way.
The prize line includes $224,000 in saddles with up to 100 saddles at the State level, 10 more at the Regionals, and two at the National Finals in preliminary rounds. This is in addition to an automatic qualification into the World Series Finals with two 4-Star, 3-horse slant load gooseneck trailers, 20 B&W Hitch DEFENDER receivers and $43,000 in added cash. RSNC is proud of our members support and we intend to show it by heaping on the prize line to contestants at every level of competition.
Here is how it works:
From every participating sanctioned RSNC event there will be a 10 man round robin offered to the top 10 point earning riders in each of 2 categories. There are two categories: 3 and below rated riders and 4 through 6 rated riders. The winners will win a 70 percent payback and will advance to a finals depending on the time of the year in which they qualified. Those qualifying between National Finals and State finals will advance to the State Finals. Those qualifying between the State and Regional Finals will advance to the Regional Finals and those qualifying between Regional finals and National Finals will advance to the National Finals.
Every State Finals will have an elimination round if needed to determine the top 10 from the state in each of the two categories. Those ten will ride at the State Finals in a championship round robin to determine the saddle winners for every state. First through fifth will also advance directly to the World Series Championships at the RSNC National Finals. In 2013 since the Worlds Series was introduced in January after the state finals, all first and second place point earners in ratings 1 through 6 in the 2012 State Points race will be invited to advance directly to the elimination round at the National Finals.
Every Regional Finals will have an elimination round if needed to determine the top 10 who qualified between the State and Regional Finals. Those 10 will ride in a championship round to determine the saddle winners. First through fifth will advance directly to the World Series Championships at the RSNC National Finals.
The National Finals will have an elimination round to determine the top 10 who qualified between the Regional and National Finals. Those 10 will ride in a championship round to determine the saddle winners. All 10 will advance directly to the World Series Championship at the RSNC National Finals. Additionally, all first and second place point earners in ratings 1 through 6 in the National Points race will also be invited to the elimination round.
The World Series Championship Rounds
Elimination Rounds – All riders advancing to the elimination rounds will be placed in a single pool for each of the two rating categories. Rider’s names will be randomly drawn for groups of up to 10 rider round robins. These winners will advance to the final or semi-final round depending on the number of qualifying riders. Only 10 riders will be in the final round. All round robins right up to the World Series Finals will pay 70 percent back in addition to the prize line.
Any RSNC producer can host a World Series Event, the 10 high point riders of the day in ratings #1 – #6 qualify to ride in either the #1-#3 Round Robin or the #4-#6 Round Robin, then the winner of each class qualifies to compete in a Regional competition (open to any new or exsisting member). There are five around the United States, those who win their class at Regionals qualify to compete at RSNC National Finals in Fort Worth, TX, on June 4-9.
