R6.4.3 Failure of Partners of Two Separate Teams to Appear at the Rodeo. In the instance that a partner from each of two teams has turned out or drawn out of the rodeo due to a notified turn out, non-notified turn out, doctor’s release or visible injury or illness, the remaining two team members may compete as a new team, provided that the remaining team members must remain either a header or heeler and notify the Arena Secretary by the times specified below. If either of the new team members’ partner is a notified turn-out, a notified doctor release, or a notified visible injury or illness, then the new team members must notify the Arena Secretary that they will compete as a team prior to the stock draw for competition of the first original team. If neither of the new team members’ partners is a notified turn out/doctor release/visible injury or illness, then the new team members must notify the Arena Secretary that they will compete as a team prior to the time of competition in that rodeo of the first original team. In all instances covered by this Rule R6.4.3, the position for competition of the newly-formed team shall be determined by the flip of a coin. R6.4.4 Notification to Arena Secretary.
