Cave Creek Rodeo Ground Rules

by PRCA ProRodeo | May 13, 2020

Dear Cave Creek Rodeo Contestants,

Below are the COVID-19 Rodeo Ground Rules for the 2020 Cave Creek Rodeo, scheduled for May 22-24. We are excited to have ProRodeo return. We must recognize the increased responsibility that comes with returning to competition. The PRCA returns in an environment that will ensure the safety of our competitors, volunteers and the community. We have worked with the Cave Creek Rodeo Committee and local authorities to have this rodeo. As this is our first rodeo under these new rules, we ask for your cooperation in following these rules, working together for the betterment of the sport and future rodeos.

Please take time to review the PRCA Coronavirus Ground Rules and Safety Guidelines book that was posted last week. Click here to review.

Health Screening: The Cave Creek Rodeo grounds will open 3 hours prior to each performance/slack for a mandatory health screening. All contestants and personnel will be required to enter the Rodeo Grounds by driving down 28th Street and turning right onto Maddox Rd. Please adhere to the following:

  • Turn into the rodeo grounds and remain in vehicles where you will be directed into two lanes
  • Return signed waivers into Rodeo Committee personnel
  • Participants and Personnel Health Screened
    • Cleared contestants and helpers will receive a wristband for the performance/slack in which they are competing, and escorted to parking by rodeo committee
    • Secondary screening for vehicle for anyone not cleared by Medical personnel
      • Contestants and Personnel not clearing health screening will exit rodeo grounds per the Medical Teams direction.

Contestant Helpers: We have to limit the number of people in both ends of the arena through the grounds rules to reduce potential congestion and respect social distancing. If a helper is required, please identify a helper who is a PRCA/WPRA member and entered in the rodeo. All helpers will be required to clear the health screening and have the corresponding wristband for that performance/slack of the rodeo.

Traveling Companions: As access is restricted to both ends of the arena to contestants and helpers only, additional traveling companions are discouraged. Health Screening will only be administered to contestant and designated helper. Contestant must be present at time the designated helper is screened.

Rodeo Grounds: The grounds will not be open on Thursday, May 21. Grounds will open at 5:30 a.m. on Friday, May 22.

The required waivers are below for you to print off and sign. Please bring with you to the check-in for Cave Creek.

In closing, the PRCA looks forward to seeing you in Cave Creek. Most importantly, please continue to stay safe and healthy.

Best regards,
Tom Glause
COO/Director of Rodeo Administration
