2019 PRCA Rule Book

Each year, at least 150 days prior to the date of the first performance of that year’s rodeo, the Rodeo Committee should file with the PRCA a confirmation form (to be supplied by the PRCA) advising the PRCA of (I) the time of performances and slack; (II) the exact amount of added purse money; (III) the Stock Contractor of record and the primary Stock Contractor (if different) for the rodeo; (IV) the Ground Rules for the rodeo; and (V) any special considerations for the rodeo. Committee dues and approval fees shall be payable annually (the dues and fees for the first rodeo covered by the application must accompany the multiyear application). If a Rodeo Committee submits an application for approval which is received by the PRCA National Office 150 calendar days or more prior to the date of the first performance of the rodeo shall be required to pay only half of the scaled approval fee. A Rodeo Committee submitting an application for approval which is received by the PRCA National Office no later than 120 calendar days prior to the first performance of the rodeo shall be required to pay only three-quarters of the scaled approval fee. A Rodeo Committee submitting an application for approval which is received by the PRCA National Office less than 120 calendar days prior to the first performance of the rodeo shall be required to make full payment of the scaled approval fee. An application for approval which is received by the PRCA National Office less than 90 calendar days prior to the rodeo may be denied but, if approved, will result in required payment of $100 above the scaled approval fee. B10.1.4 Ground Rules. Rodeo Committees requesting special competition Ground Rules must submit a copy of the proposed Ground Rules and an explanation of the reason for the requested change along with the application for approval at least 150 calendar days prior to the first scheduled competition of the rodeo, and must be approved by the appropriate Event Representatives and the Director of Rodeo Administration. Any special Ground Rules approved by the PRCA will be enforced by the PRCA, and corresponding fines will be assessed and collected by the PRCA. B10.1.5 Limitation on Acceptance of Contestant Card Members. Other than the National Finals Rodeo, the National Circuit Finals Rodeo and any Circuit Finals Rodeo, a rodeo must be open for competition to all Contestant Card Members, unless specific limitations are set forth in the application for approval and are approved by the Director of Rodeo Administration and the Event Representative. B10.1.6 Permits. A rodeo applying for PRCA approval must set forth its policy on accepting Permit Members (pursuant to the rules listed in the Official Rodeo Rules) in the application for approval. Unless a rodeo specifically notifies the PRCA in its application for approval that it will accept Permit Member entries, no Permit Member entries will be allowed at that rodeo, except for those rodeos required to accept Permit Members under these Bylaws.
