The Queen has the right to take a Member’s back number to the Board if you refuse her request to carry a flag. Members should be coming to the Queen to say they will carry a flag and not make the Queen come and find flag carriers. We have many people who are invested in our Association and one of the ways we show our appreciation is to fly their flags in the Grand Entry. This is to be taken very seriously. Volunteer. B POOL BULLS On your first entry of the year, you must declare if you are an A Pool or B Pool Bull Rider. If you declare B Pool, then no points you earn count to qualify you for Canadians or for Nationals. They would only count towards the Sask B Pool Year End Buckle. Anytime during the year you can enter as an A Pool Bull Rider. After that ride (1 exemption only), you decide if you are going to return to B Pool or stay as an A Pool. If you decide to move to A Pool, your points you accumulate in B Pool stay in B Pool towards the B Pool Year end. (You cannot ride at B Pool at the Finals.)
