How and Where Are the 2017 WPRA Tour Standings Used:
The WPRA Tour Standings are used at many approved limited entry rodeos. As a matter of policy, the WPRA strongly encourages all limited entry rodeos to include the WPRA Tour Standings as one of their qualifiers. By including the WPRA Tour, it provides an opportunity for a wider range of our member to participate and possibly gain entry to a limited entry rodeo.
To receive points in the WPRA Tour Standings, you must be a current WPRA card member before the competition begins.
The 2017 WPRA Tour includes selected rodeos between October 1, 2016 and September 30, 2017 of the 2017 competition year.
Number of Rodeos/Events:
The 2017 WPRA Tour is made up of a total of 65 rodeos/events. There are 65 rodeos across the US (5 from each circuit and Canada).
Type of Rodeos/Events:
Rodeos selected to be part of the 2017 WPRA Tour are: 1 round or multiple rounds. Limited entry rodeos are not part of the 65 identified in the program. In the case of a rodeo with multiple rounds, points will be allocated based on the average only.
2017 WPRA Tour Standings:
The 2017 WPRA Tour standings will be point based and will count from your best 7 results (out of the 65 possible qualifying rodeos) where one competed and won money up to and including the 15th position. There is no minimum or maximum number of rodeos/events required.
There is a 15- point scale, with point allocations from 15 points (for 1st place money) to 1 point (for 15th place money). No more than 15 positions will be awarded points. At a multiple rodeo/event, points are allocated to the average only. Points are awarded to money winners only, i.e. if a rodeo only pays 12 places, than first gets 15 points and 12th gets 4 points.
Points in the 2017 WPRA Tour standings will count from your best 7 rodeos/events where you have competed and won money.
Ties in the 2017 WPRA Tour Standings will be broken by looking at total money won at your best 7 point rodeos/events.
