Rhinestone Renegades Women’s UBBI Futurity Season a Success

Since it’s inception in 2010, the United Bucking Bulls, Inc (UBBI) has made a tremendous effort to provide new and exciting opportunities for it’s members and add value to their experience each year. In 2014, the UBBI added the Rhinestone Renegades Women’s Futurity series to it’s schedule and it has been a great success!

“We were very happy with the Women’s Futurity events this season,” stated Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “Together with Joy Hawks and the Rhinestone Renegades, we added 4 regular season Women’s Futurity events and the Women’s Futurity Finale to our UBBI schedule. It’s been a really exciting season for us and our members!”

The Rhinestone Renegades Women’s UBBI Futurity Series hosted it’s first event in Palestine, Texas on March 8th, followed by another on April 5th at the Spring Spectacular and June 7th at the Show-Me Shoot Out. A fourth event was added during the Black Gold Derby in Locust Grove, Oklahoma on August 9th. Together with Joy Hawks, the UBBI sanctioned these events and the Finale.  All women futurity participants purchased a 2014 UBBI membership for $100 and entry fees for each event were $450.
Other than event staff, only women members are allowed behind chutes or in rigging areas during the futurity performance.  Women were assisted by Rhinestone Renegade staff and/or other women participants.
The payout was a 3D payout.  From the highest placing bull score, the 2D will be 3 points less than 1st place.  The 3D will be 6 points less than first place.  Total prize money in the 1D was 50% of the net purse; in the 2D was 30% of the net purse; in the 1D was 20% of the net purse.  Example: 1st place in 1D – 88.25 points; 1st place in 2D – 85.25 points; 1st place in the 3D – 82.25 points.  Pay-Out was 1 place paid for every 3 bulls entered, up to 20 places unless otherwise posted in Event Details. Total number of places paid was determined and then divided by 3D’s (1D, 2D, 3D).  When uneven number of places are determined, an additional place was paid in the 1D.  Example: 40 bulls entered divided by 3 = 13 places paid.  13 places divided by 3D’s = 5 places in 1D; 4 places in the 2D; 4 places in the 1D.
The Rhinestone Renegades Women’s UBBI Futurity Series competition is for 2 year old bulls (2012 Born) and all 2 year old bulls are eligible to participate in the women’s futurity events, regardless of ownership and/or participation in other futurity events.  Futurity Bulls are bucked with a dummy for 5 seconds and bulls do not have to be ABBI registered to compete.
In 2014, forty different Rhinestone Renegades members competed this season at five Women’s Futurity events, including the Finale.  All 40 women’s participants will receive a custom UBBI Women’s Futurity Series jacket, regardless of competing at the Finale.  Buckles were awarded to the 1st place winners, in each of the D brackets, at each of the regular season events. Buckles will be awarded to the Finale Champion in each of the 3D’s and the Year-end Series Champion and Top 10 Year-end finishers based on money won will receive a special award.
“I’m very excited for all the women and look forward to the Finale,” stated Randy Schmutz. “I want to say thank you especially to Joy Hawks and her staff for helping make this a success! We look forward to making it even bigger and better in 2015!”
