# 2019 PRCA Rule Book

PART 5 ** PAYOFF ** R5.1 Calculation of Payoff. The payoff for a PRCA event at a PRCA-approved rodeo shall be based on the added purse money plus contestantsâ€™ entry fees, less the six percent deduction described in Part R5.1.2, plus any sponsor money, if available. R5.1.1 Determination of Number of Contestants. The number of contestants, for purposes of determining the total amount of entry fees, shall not include contestants who properly doctor release or draw out in accordance with these Official Rodeo Rules prior to their scheduled competition in first go-round. R5.1.2 Six Percent Deduction. Six percent of the purse money and entry fees shall be deducted from the total prize money (not including bull riding, bareback, saddle bronc or tie-down roping day money), before determining the number of places to be paid. Only sponsorship money added to an event or all events at any rodeo by a PRCA National Sponsor is exempt from six percent deduction, unless otherwise approved by the Director of Rodeo Administration. R5.2 Determining Prize Money for Each Go-Round and/or the Average (Rodeo Without a Finals). Add all purse money and entry fees per event. Deduct six percent from this total. Add any sponsorship money available. This figure is referred to below as the Total. (In the team roping, divide this Total by two before continuing on.) The distribution of prize money between go-rounds and the average may then be determined as follows: R5.2.1 One Go-Round. The entire Total should be used for prize money for the one go-round. R5.2.2 Two Go-Rounds and Average. Prize money for the average is the same as for each go-round. Divide Total by three. The result is the prize money for the average and each go-round. R5.2.2.1 Two Go-Rounds and Average in Team Roping, Tie-down Roping, Steer Wrestling and Steer Roping. Prize money for the average is one and one-half times the go-round. Divide Total by seven. Multiply the result by two to obtain amount of prize money for each go-round and by three to obtain amount of prize money for the average. R5.2.3 Three Go-Rounds and Average. Prize money for the average is one-and-one-half times the go-round. Divide Total by nine. Multiply the result by two to obtain amount of prize money for each go-round and by three to obtain amount of prize money for the average. R5.2.4 Four Go-Rounds and Average. Prize money for the average is

two times the go-round. Divide the Total by six and the result will be the prize money for each go-round. Twice the result will be the prize money for the average.
