2019 PRCA Rule Book

B9.4.5.1 Required Participation Rule. In order to satisfy the Required Participation Rule, a contestant must comply with the following: (1) If the contestant’s Place of Residence is within his Designated Circuit, said contestant must compete in either 40% of the rodeos with that event within that Circuit (based on the total number of rodeos during the previous circuit Rodeo Year which held the particular event for which the contestant seeks to become a CFR Contestant) or 15 rodeos with that event within that Circuit, whichever is less; or (2) Each Circuit Board of Directors must designate prior to the circuit Rodeo Year Cutoff Date whether the non- resident Required Participation Rule will be based on 40%/15 or 50%/15 requirement as provided in the next sentence. If the contestant’s Place of Residence is not within his Designated Circuit, said contestant must compete in either 40% (or 50% if so elected by the Circuit Board of Directors) of the rodeos with that event within the Circuit (based on the total number of rodeos during the previous circuit Rodeo Year which held the particular event for which the contestant seeks to become a CFR Contestant) or 15 rodeos with that event within that Circuit, whichever is greater (provided that, if there are less than 15 rodeos with a particular event in a circuit during a circuit Rodeo Year, a non-resident may satisfy this rule if he competes in 100% of the rodeos with that particular event in the circuit during that Rodeo Year). After a contestant has designated a circuit for five consecutive years, he will no longer have to meet the non-resident required participation rule to qualify for the Circuit Finals. After five years such contestant will have to meet the same requirements as a circuit resident.
