IEA Western Announcement

In response to suggestions by many Western Coaches and Parents of Riders, the IEA Board of Directors has approved recent recommendations by the IEA Western Committee to hold the 2018-2019 Semi-Finals in April this coming year (2019). These Semi-Finals will again be held in the same, or nearby, facilities as in 2018. Specific dates and locations will be announced by the end of this month.

Also, per Committee recommendation, the 2020 Semi-Finals will be held in new locations/different hosting regions than 2018/2019, with at least one location to be West of the Mississippi. Those dates and locations will be confirmed no later than January 2019.

Site recommendations for 2020 can be submitted to IEA Executive Director, .

Of course, we will again hold the Western National Finals in Oklahoma City as part of the NRHA Derby in 2019 and in 2020.

We appreciate the recommendations and enthusiasm from everyone connected to the Western Discipline as we work to keep improving the IEA experience for our youth riders and their supporters.
