        b)    Request a PRCA-branded debit card to access funds using an ATM or use it anywhere Mastercard is accepted as long as adequate funds are available in your RodeoPay account.

Entry Fee Deadlines Changing on April 1st


Contestants are reminded that Bylaw 10.2.1 – Nonpayment of Entry Fees and Related Fees was changed at a recent PRCA Board Meeting.  Effective for all rodeos that start on or after April 1st,  the deadline for paying all entry fees, Central Entry Office charges, circuit fees, judges fees, insurance fees and any applicable stock charges are due at midnight (Mountain Time) of the day of the last performance of any given rodeo.  Failure to pay by this deadline will result in late fines and contestants becoming ineligible.


There are three methods to pay these fees.

1.       Online via Member Self Service (this website).  Entry Fees for a given rodeo are posted to your Accounts Receivable account the day following the initial position call backs.  This site is normally available 24 hours a day, and allows for secure payments of your fees via Credit Card or from your RodeoPay account.


2.       Call Member Records at (719) 528-4747.  To use this method, you must call during PRCA National Headquarters business hours, so plan accordingly!  For example, if you choose this method to pay your entry fees for a rodeo whose last performance is Saturday, you must contact Member Records to pay these fees no later than the previous Friday during normal business hours.


3.       Pay Rodeo Secretary at the Rodeo.

National Circuit Finals Rodeos

The 27th annual Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo will be held April 10-12 at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie, Okla. Year-end circuit champions and circuit finals average champions from all 12 PRCA circuits qualify to compete at the RNCFR. If a contestant is both the year-end and circuit finals champion, the reserve year-end circuit champion is the second qualifier. The format for the RNCFR will remain the same, with two full go-rounds, and the top eight in the average advancing to the semifinals. The top four from the semis will then go head-to-head in the sudden-death RNCFR finals to determine the Ram national circuit champions.


The Chute Help National Circuit Finals Steer Roping will be held May 16-18 at the Goshen County Fairgrounds in Torrington, Wyo. The year-end circuit champions and circuit finals average champions in the seven PRCA circuits that have steer roping qualify for the CHNCFSR. In addition, the second- and third-place finishers in each circuit’s year-end standings qualify to compete, for a total of four contestants per participating circuit. The format at the CHNCFSR includes five full go-rounds, with the top eight in the average advancing to the semifinals. The top four in the semis then compete in the four-man finals for the national circuit championship.

If you missed buying your photo at a recent PRCA rodeo, you can search the website by event and purchase the photos directly from the site. This new tool allows PRCA Photographers to reach a greater audience and now provides a place for fans to search for their favorite contestant and purchase one or multiple images.
