(PRCA staff submitted 4/19) 2022 Rule Proposals Add New: R5.5.3.1 Procedure When Not Enough Contestants Qualify for Paid Places In the bull riding event, if no one qualifies for prize money for that rodeo in its entirety, no ground money will be paid out.  The prize money for the bull riding for that rodeo will be held in escrow by the PRCA until the following year and will be combined with the bull riding purse for that same rodeo the following year and paid out in accordance to the PRCA Rule Book.  The PRCA will not retain its 6% until the money has actually been paid out.  If the purse is “carried over” to the following year, the amount to be combined with the current year’s purse will be published in the long listings in the ground rules of that rodeo. At series rodeos (which consist of 10 or more weekly rodeos), in the bull riding event, if no one qualifies for prize money for that rodeo, no ground money will be paid out.  The prize money for the bull riding for that rodeo will be combined with the bull riding purse for the next rodeo included in the series the following week and paid out in accordance with the PRCA Rule Book.  It will be listed in the ground rules that the prize money may be “carried over” to the following week if there are no qualified rides.
