2019 PRCA Rule Book
B8.5 Contract Personnel.
B8.5.1 Application. Contract Personnel must be Financially Eligible and must have participated in at least eight PRCA-approved rodeos in the Rodeo Year that they apply for the NFR position with a minimum of 20 total performances in the category applied for in order to participate at the NFR. For purposes of this Bylaw, rodeos at which a Contract Personnel Member works only in a slack shall not count towards the minimum number of rodeos or performances required to participate at the NFR. A Contract Personnel Member may not work at the NFR unless he has filed an application with the Director of Rodeo Administration in accordance with this Section B8.5.1. Applications for all Contract Personnel positions to the NFR will be accepted by the Director of Rodeo Administration up to May 1 of the calendar year in which the NFR will be held. No later than October 15, the top 20 bareback and saddle bronc riders (based on the rodeo season year-end in which the current NFR is being held) will vote for two pickup men, with the votes accepted through the Central Entry Office for one full entry week; the top 20 bull riders (based on the rodeo season year-end in which the current NFR is being held) will vote for three bullfighters. For the one full entry week following the first vote, the same top 20 bareback and saddle bronc riders will vote for two of the top four vote-getters in the pickup men category; the same top 20 bull riders will vote for three of the top final vote-getters in the bullfighter category. The top two vote- getters and one alternate (the third-place vote-getter in the final tally) in the pickup man category and the top three vote-getters in the bullfighter categories will be selected for the NFR. All other Contract Personnel (excluding the Barrelman) for the NFR shall be selected by the National Finals Rodeo Committee no later than October 30.
