2019 PRCA Rule Book

R1.4 Setting Up the Rodeo. Generally, a rodeo shall be set up by that rodeo’s Primary Stock Contractor. A representative of the Rodeo Committee may set up the rodeo only if specifically authorized, in writing, by the Primary Stock Contractor, and if such authorization is forwarded to the Central Entry Office prior to the scheduled time for setting up the rodeo. However, if the Primary Stock Contractor/Rodeo Committee representative has not contacted the Central Entry Office within 30 minutes after entry closing time, the Central Entry Office will be allowed to set up the rodeo and draw positions, using the Central Entry Office’s discretion. Exceptions will be made only if the Primary Stock Contractor/Rodeo Committee representative has made arrangements with the Central Entry Office prior to entry opening time or if the rodeo has never before been sanctioned by the PRCA. The Director of Rodeo Administration shall have the authority to levy fines if a Primary Stock Contractor/Rodeo Committee representative fails to return a call at a mutually agreed time. R1.4.1 Failure by Stock Contractors to Report Required Information to the Central Entry Office . Failure to notify the Central Entry Office of the anticipated slack times for a given rodeo, or failure to adhere to the specified order and time, shall subject the Stock Contractor to a $250 fine for the first offense, and a $500 fine for the second and subsequent offenses. R1.4.2 Minimum Number of Head of Stock. There shall be a minimum of 12 head in the riding events and 10 head in the timed events for each paid performance in all events where slack is run, unless otherwise approved by the Director of Rodeo Administration. R1.4.3 Minimum Go-Rounds in Timed Events for Rodeos with

Four or More Performances. Rodeos that have four or more performances must have at least two go-rounds in a timed event if the number of Contestant Card Member entries in that event is less than the following (unless otherwise approved at time of rodeo approval): (a) 75 Contestant Card Member entries at a four performance rodeo; (b) 90 Contestant Card Member entries at a five performance rodeo; or (c) 105 Contestant Card Member entries at a six performance rodeo. A rodeo with seven or more performances must have a minimum of two go-rounds. Local entries and Permit Member entries shall not be counted for purposes of determining whether this Rule applies. Notwithstanding any Bylaw or Official Rodeo Rule to the contrary, for purposes of this Rule R1.4.3, a finals shall be considered a performance. The number of Contestant Card Member entries in an event and the number of go-rounds for the event will be determined before the parameters are applied. Once the parameters are applied, an entry who is drawn out of the rodeo due to his parameter will not be placed back into the rodeo. For example, if 80 Contestant Card Members enter a timed event at a four performance rodeo, and ten of those entries submit the parameter “out if one go-round,” the event may be only one go- round (based on the number of Contestant Card Member entries before the parameters are applied) and the ten Contestant Card
