Chief-Joseph-Days-Logo-yellowWelcome to the 70th Anniversary of Chief Joseph Days.  We would like to thank you for your interest in becoming a Chief Joseph Day’s Court member.  Serving on the Chief Joseph Days Rodeo Court provides young women an excellent opportunity to improve poise and self assurance as they attend various community events, activities, parades, and rodeo appearances throughout the year.

The experience of being on the CJD court will be an ever bonding tie to your community, CJD, PRCA, and the sport of rodeo not to mention the value of the friendships and connections you will form throughout the year.

If you are looking for a year of hard work, lots of hair, make up, smiles, waves, more hard work, little girls wanting to be you, meeting new people, beautiful outfits, traveling, more smiles more waving, 3 weeks of selling CJD tickets (even in your sleep), a nice big check after it is all over then this application is for you.

Please read every page carefully and fill in all lines as complete as possible.  Below you will find a list of what pages YOU are to KEEP and what pages YOU are to RETURN.  If you have any questions please feel free to call Cammie Hale (Court Director) at 541-426-3707 or Debbie Short at 541-432-1015.

Applications must be returned to the Chief Joseph Rodeo office by August 31, 2014.  A meeting of all interested parents and applicants will be held September 15th at 7 pm at the Civic Center in Joseph to help answer additional questions.

Court tryouts will be September 21, 2013 at 1:00pm in the Harley Tucker Memorial Arena.
