12/14/15: 2016 Finals Information and Changes Explained:
Dear IRA Members,
The IRA board has been working on the 2016 finals and we want to give you advanced information about an exciting change that should improve your finals experience. Denison, Iowa has been a good fit for the IRA, but we wanted to find better facilities with fewer conflicting events. We have been able to do just that! The finals will be held August 26th, 27th, and 28th at the Lone Wolf Ranch Arena in Cleveland, Missouri. This change in location and date should allow more people to attend the finals and hopefully bring in some new members.
The Lone Wolf Ranch Arena is a full time training center with a large main arena and a small warm-up arena that are both under one roof. As well as having adequate stalls and all are under one roof. Take a look at their website at, http://lonewolfarena.com/. You will be impressed with this facility and we think this location will be great for our Finals. This a 120,000 square foot indoor/outdoor facility, a few minutes from Kansas City. The Lone Wolf facilities will give IRA members access to motels and entertainment while allowing the IRA association to find more sponsorships. Over-all this should be a fantastic move, one to help us grow as an association.
Your IRA Board of Directors
