B12.1.4 Deadline for Filing Certain Grievances. It is important to the sport of rodeo to have finality in standings for purposes of determining qualifiers for certain rodeos like the NFR, CFRs, etc. Therefore, notwithstanding any time limitations in which to bring a grievance as may be set forth in this Chapter 12, if a Member desires to file a grievance (including a grievance filed pursuant to the expedited grievance process), the result of which, if successful, could be a change in the Official Standings, and the Member desires that any resulting changes in Official Standings be made in time to affect qualification for the NFR, the NCFR, a CFR, a special sponsorship event or year-end sponsorship awards, such grievance must be received by the Director of Rodeo Administration no later than 14 calendar days after the end of the corresponding Cutoff Date for that rodeo, event or sponsorship award. If the 14th day after a Cutoff Date falls on a non-PRCA National Office Business Day, then the grievance must be received no later than the next PRCA National Office Business Day. Any grievance filed after this deadline may still be considered, provided that all other requirements for a grievance are satisfied, but any resulting changes will not impact the applicable Official Standings for qualification for the particular rodeo, event or sponsorship awards. B12.2 Disciplinary Actions by the Director of Rodeo Administration and Appeals Therefrom.
