Rodeo Entry Information 30-HOUR REPLACEMENT RULE

ALL EVENTS: A DR, VIR, or a notified TO can be replaced by an alternate from a list of contestants that were drawn out as a result of using the “no same day” or “no same performance” preferences or due to qualifications or permit maximum, as long as the notification is made through PROCOM at least 30 hours prior to the scheduled performance (or slack) in which the contestant is being replaced. Notifications made after the “30-hour” deadline will not be replaced and notifications on record with PROCOM at the 30-hour deadline will be final. Replacements must be made prior to the first go- round of competition. In the team roping, a team will only be replaced it both partners of the team notify a DR, VIR, TO or DO following the same guidelines as applied in the other events. If only one member of the team notifies and his partner chooses to compete, his partner can find a replacement partner per rule R6.4. If stock has already been drawn in the riding events, the judges will draw an animal for the alternate contestant, after the TO deadline for that performance, from a pool consisting of the animal drawn by the contestant that he is replacing, any other turned out animals (which includes NTO’s, DR’s, and VIR’s), and the first designated re- ride for that performance that is still available. If stock has not yet been drawn, the contestant will be drawn an animal by PROCOM during the scheduled stock draw time. Animals that are turned out (includes NTO’s, DR’s, and VIR’s) will not be included in the re-ride draw until after the TO deadline (3 hours prior to the performance) and replacements for that performance have been made, to insure that there are the same number of animals and contestants for that performance. ALTERNATE LIST (for events that add $5,000 or more) Contestants who were drawn out due to using the “NSD” or “NSP” preferences or who were drawn out due to using the “replace me if I don’t get my preference” parameter will be the first to be considered RIDING EVENTS: Re-entries will be accepted at limited entry rodeos where the actual entries accepted during the original entry period were less than the limit. Also, if there was not a limit for an event, and there were not enough entries after the original entry period to place at least 12 contestants in each performance, re-entries will be accepted. A time period will be designated and published in the Business Journal in the ground rules of each rodeo for the entries to be re-opened sometime prior to the riding event stock draw. Contestants that enter during the re-entry period will be placed in the remaining available positions. All re-entries will be accepted to fill the performances not to exceed the original limit defined in the ground rules (based on “money won” qualifications) or 12 per performance at a rodeo that did not limit its entries (based on a random draw.) TIMED EVENTS: Re-entries will be accepted for events that did Each committee will have the option to implement the “Re-entries Policy” at its rodeo at the time of approval.

as alternates in the order that they originally qualified for the rodeo or event. Contestants who entered during the original entry period and were drawn out due to qualifications will be considered next. For rodeos or events that start prior to May 1, 2022, alternates will be selected based on 2021 money won. For rodeos or events that start on or after May 1, 2022, alternates will be selected based on 2022 money won, as of 7 days prior to entry closing. If an alternate is scheduled to compete at another PRCA rodeo or event during a performance that has a “same day” conflict with the position for which he is being considered as a replacement, he will not be eligible to be an alternate for that position. If a contestant does not accept an available position or is not eligible for a position due to a conflict during a performance, he will remain on the alternate list in the same order for any other positions that may become available. If the alternate accepts a position, he must turn out of the conflicting position at that time. ALTERNATE LIST (for events that add less than $5,000) Contestants who were drawn out due to using the “NSD” or “NSP” preferences or who were drawn out due to using the “replace me if I don’t get my preference” parameter will be the first to be considered as alternates in the order that they originally qualified for the rodeo or event. Next in the order, on the alternate list, will be a random draw of all contestants with “money won”, followed by a random draw of all contestants with no “money won”. Only contestants who entered during the original entry period will be considered as alternates. Due to “featured” events and “equal money” in the team roping, some rodeos may be using both types of alternate lists for different events. not have enough entries to place at least 10 contestants in each performance. Contestants that enter during the re-entry period will be placed in the remaining available positions. All re-entries will be accepted to fill the performances not to exceed the original limit defined in the ground rules (based on “money won” qualifications) or 10 contestants per performance at a rodeo that did not limit its entries (based on a random draw.) ALL EVENTS: A contestant that re-enters will not be placed in a position that conflicts with his position at another PRCA rodeo or event. Further, a contestant placed in slack during the original placement of a rodeo may request a trade into an open position in a paid performance during the re-entry time. Re-entries will not be accepted if an event is declared “no contest” due to the lack of entries at the original entry closing time. At the sole discretion of the PRCA and/or stock contractor, a re- entry may not be accepted.

ProRodeo Sports News 2/18/2022

Rodeo Entry Information WALK-UP REPLACEMENT POLICY

Committees will have the option to implement the following “walk-up” replacement policy to the ground rules of their rodeo: “In addition to the ‘30-hour replacement’ policy, Procom will replace TO’s, DR’s, VIR’s, and DO’s in compliance with the “30-hour replacement” policy up to the turn out deadline for each performance (3 hours prior to the performance). At this point in time, the secretary will receive the notified TO’s and DR’s for that performance along with the alternate list established by Procom for each event in which contestants were drawn out due to qualification or due to using the ‘no same day’ preference or the ‘or out’ parameter. All TO’s, DR’s, and VIR’s (including contestants who notified after the 30-hour deadline, but before the 3 hour turn out deadline) may be replaced by contestants on the alternate list. If a riding event contestant turns out or doctor’s releases his position at a rodeo prior to the stock draw for that rodeo and an animal is not drawn for that contestant (see R3.2.1), that position will not be filled by an alternate contestant to insure that there are not more replacement contestants than here are animals available. Contestants who turn out or doctor’s release in a slack will not be replaced, with the exception of a two go-round contest where the 2nd go-round is guaranteed to compete in a performance (the second go-round position cannot be traded to the slack). Contestants who desire to be accepted as alternates must physically check in with the rodeo secretary no later than 2 hours prior to the performance. All alternate contestants will be required to pay entry fees. Stock for the Riding Events will be drawn for the “30 Hour Replacement” and the “Walk Up Replacement” contestants after the check in deadline, from a pool of animals consisting of the animals drawn by the contestants who notified turn outs through Procom (includes DR’s, VIR’s, and DO’s) and the first available designated re-ride for that performance. If more than one position is being replaced within a performance or slack, the order that each are replaced will be determined by random draw. If more contestants check in with the rodeo secretary than there are positions available, the contestants accepted will be determined by their order on the alternate list (established by Procom). A contestant who did not enter the rodeo and who does not have a position on the alternate list, can also check in with the rodeo secretary prior to the walk up deadline by presenting his current active PRCA membership card to the rodeo secretary. If more contestants who are not on the alternate list check in with the secretary than there are positions available, a random draw by the judges will determine which alternates will be accepted. After all of the turned out positions have been replaced by contestants who did have a position on the alternate list, any remaining turned out positions may be filled by current active PRCA contestants who did not have a position on the alternate list and who did check in with the rodeo secretary by the walk up deadline. If a contestant, who was not originally entered in the rodeo, is ineligible and competes at the rodeo, will have any money owed to the PRCA retained by the PRCA from his money won at that rodeo. Contestants who are placed in a position at another PRCA rodeo or event on the same day as the position being replaced will not be eligible to be an alternate for that position with the following exception. A contestant can compete at a rodeo as a replacement and at another rodeo with a “same day” conflict as long as he does not turn out of either rodeo. The contestant must notify the secretary that he has already competed at the conflicting rodeo or will actually be competing at the conflicting rodeo that is flagged on the secretary’s alternate list and therefore will be eligible to be used as an alternate. For example, if a contestant competes during a performance or slack at one rodeo then arrives and physically checks in with the rodeo secretary prior to the “walk up” deadline at another rodeo with a same day conflict, he will be allowed to compete at both rodeos. Or a contestant may be used as an alternate at one rodeo and then compete at another rodeo with a same day conflict in which he was already entered as long as he competes at both and does not turn out of the conflicting rodeo. Conflicting positions for each alternate will also be flagged with an “X” on the alternate list. A contestant will be responsible to know his conflicting rodeos and will be disqualified and fined $100 if he checks in with the secretary and competes as a replacement and then turns out of the rodeo with the “same day” conflict. Positions at other rodeos that are turned-out will be considered conflicts. STOCK DRAW AT TOUR RODEOS: Riding event stock for “Tour” rodeos will be drawn 7 days prior to the first performance of the rodeo with the following exception. If the stock contractor or a sub-contractor for a given rodeo is supplying stock for another rodeo that is not completed prior to the stock draw 7 days prior to the given rodeo, stock for the given rodeo will be drawn per the PRCA Rule Book (no later than 72 hours prior to the first performance.

Rodeo Entry Information ATTENTION CONTESTANTS

NO CONFLICTS ALLOWED The following applies to Riding Events only for rodeos with an ending date in June, July, August, or September. A contestant will not be placed at a rodeo that conflicts with a position at another PRCA Rodeo or Event based on the “No Same Performance” guidelines. This only applies to first go-round positions and second or subsequent go- round positions that cannot be traded, such as back to back situations. If a contestant cannot be placed in a position that does not conflict with his position at another PRCA rodeo or event, he will be drawn out. Furthermore, a contestant will not be allowed a first go-round trade into a position that conflicts with that contestant’s position at another PRCA Rodeo or Event based on the “NSP” guidelines. (The validity of all trade requests will be checked for conflicts prior to processing.) Conflicts with Canadian rodeos will not be checked. A “No Same Performance” conflict is defined as: A performance or slack with a start time of 12:00 AM through 11:59 AM is considered a morning performance or slack. A performance or slack with a start time of 12:00 through 5:59 PM is considered a matinee performance or slack. And a performance or slack with a start time of 6:00 PM through 11:59 PM is considered an evening performance. Contestants can still use “NSD (No Same Day)” or “NSP (No Same Performance)” as a second preference and will be placed in positions accordingly. If the NSD or NSP is used while entering a given rodeo, only the original position (drawn by PROCOM) at a rodeo with conflicting dates will be checked for conflicts, if a first go-round trade has not been finalized and processed by PROCOM. Once a first go-round trade has been verified and processed (which is done each business day at 5 PM), then conflicts with the new traded position can be checked. If a NSD or NSP preference is used, a contestant will not be placed in a conflicted position. If anyone contestant in a buddy group has a conflict, the entire buddy group will be drawn out, if the NSD or NSP preference is used as a second preference. If contestants in a buddy group do not use the NSD or NSP preference, a buddy group may be split if one or more members of the buddy group is conflicted and is drawn out and the others are not conflicted. This does not apply to multi-event buddy groups, since the same performance or slack in all events is not always guaranteed.

P R C A B U S I N E S S

For rodeos with conflicting dates, the entries for the rodeos with the largest amount of total added money will generally close first. Therefore a contestant will be placed in a rodeo with a larger purse first and then placed in the rodeo with the smaller purse if a non-conflicting position is available.

ATTENTION CONTESTANTS Rodeo Entry Information

NSD (“NO SAME DAY”) AND NSP (“NO SAME PERFORMANCE”) PREFERENCES The NSD (“No Same Day”) and NSP (“No Same Performance”) preferences can ensure that a contestant will not be placed to compete at two or more different PRCA rodeos either on the same day or within the same performance time frame. For the purpose of the NSP (“No Same Performance”) preference, performance (or slack) start times will be defined as: 12:00 AM through 11:59 AM as a morning performance or slack, 12:00 PM through 5:59 PM as a matinee performance or slack, and 6:00 PM through 11:59 PM as a night performance or slack. Only conflicts with other PRCA sanction rodeos or events will be checked. Conflicts with Canadian rodeo will NOT be checked. The contestant must give, at the time of entry, a specific performance or slack, generic slack, or the middle as a first preference to use the NSD or NSP as a second preference. Conflicts will not be checked if a contestant receives his first preference (the contestant will be responsible for not creating a conflict by giving a conflicting first preference). If a contestant does not receive his first preference, he will be placed in the first available non-conflicted position or be drawn out (if a non-conflicted position is not available), if and only if he gives an NSD or NSP as a second preference. Only the first go-round of a two or more go-round rodeo will be checked for conflicts with the exception of back to back formats or where the second or subsequent go-round cannot be traded. If trades for subsequent go-rounds at a specific rodeo will not be allowed, conflicts will be checked for all go-rounds at that rodeo (this does not apply to progressives and finals). Where the PRCA rulebook allows, second and subsequent go-round trades will be done through the rodeo secretary. If the NSD or NSP is used while entering a given rodeo, only the original position (drawn by PROCOM) at a rodeo with conflicting dates will be checked for conflicts, if a first go-round trade has not been finalized and processed by PROCOM. Once the first go-round trade has been verified and processed by PROCOM, then conflicts with the new traded position can be checked. If a NSD or NSP preference is used, a contestant will not be placed in a conflicted position, he will be drawn out. If any one contestant in a buddy group has a conflict, the entire buddy group will be drawn out. If either team roping partner has a conflict, both team roping partners will be drawn out. This does not apply to multi-event buddy groups, since the same performance or slack in all events is not always guaranteed. The contestant may receive a non- conflicted position in one event and not in another. In this case the contestant can add a parameter with his entry at the time of entry to “draw out of all events, if drawn out of one due to the NSD or NSP preferences.” For rodeos that have conflicting dates, the entries for the rodeos with the largest amount of total added money will generally close first. Therefore, a contestant will be placed in a rodeo with a larger purse first and then placed in the rodeo with the smaller purse if a non-conflicting position is available. Contestants who give slack as a first preference are no longer required to give a performance as a second preference. Instead, contestants will also be allowed to give a specific slack, generic slack, or the middle for their first preference and another specific slack for a second preference. All other preferences and parameters that have been allowed in the past will remain the same.

days in June each year. He manages the staff and works closely with the Officers, Executive Committee, Finance Committee and Board of Directors to ensure that all aspects of the rodeo business is being handled properly. He also spends time in the community promoting Reno Rodeo and is the liaison with the city, county and state officials. He is forward thinking and is not afraid of change to make the rodeo bigger and better in the future. George says, “Reno Rodeo is very special and has been built with a lot of hard work and a huge amount of passion. Not only passion for the Rodeo but for Reno and Nevada”. He encourages everyone to come see the middle of June. SADDLE BRONC REPRESENTATIVE Bradley Harter There are a couple things that I love in this life, one is Saddle Bronc Riding which has formed and molded me into the person I am today. I purchased my PRCA card in 2002 which led to some of the best years of my life while qualifying for the National Finals 11 times. One thing for a contestant to be successful is their interaction with the Event Director. Your representative should be someone you can trust, while is open and willing to listen to your concerns and ideas. He should be the person who will go the extra mile to represent you. As your Event Director I will use my 18 years of rodeo experience to work with the PRCA BOD, Stock Contractors, and Rodeo Committees by representing all of you from the Permit Holder to the NFR qualifier. Unfortunately, I am unable to compete due to past injuries, therefore I can focus 100% on representing you. And now is the time I can give back to the best sport in America. I know that I can be a positive voice for each and every one of you. My mission is to help provide you with the opportunity for success in Rodeo’s Classic Event as your next Saddle Bronc Event Director. Isaac Diaz As my first term as your Saddle Bronc Riding Director is coming to a close, I want to start by saying thank you to all of you that voted for me. I am truly humbled that you all would have the faith and confidence in me to be your event representative. Starting my position as Director just a couple short weeks after the cancellation of Rodeo Houston, followed by all the other rodeo cancellations of 2020 due to Covid-19, it was an extremely challenging time to learn the ropes of being an event Director. The only reason I ran for this position was to speak on behalf of my friends and follow competitors, and I can say with full confidence that I never made a decision out of my own personal ambitions, but simply what was best for the entire body of Bronc Riders. As a new election is coming upon us in the month of March, I will be running to keep my position as the Saddle Bronc Director. There are some exciting new possibilities in the works for 2022 and I hope to continue on as your Director to see them all through. Thank you all again for having confidence in me to make your voice heard. God Bless.
