    CTASA has a phone number that will inform you of the current match status. This will be updated by the Match Director if there is any chance the match may be cancelled.

    Have you ever woke up in the morning to rain in your part of Texas and wondered if the range is dry or under 6 feet of water? Call the Match Hotline and see if the match is a go. If the match is going to be cancelled there will be a message on the hotline stating that the match has been cancelled.

    Put this number in your phone!
