NOTE: The Wrangler Tour Standings have been posted all season as follows:

“At one-go rodeos and multi-go rodeos points are awarded to 10 places in the go round(s) and average. In the case of a tie, points are added together and split. Also, all contestants will receive 5 pts for competing. The points for the go-round(s) and average are as follows: 1st place - 100 points, 2nd place - 90 points, 3rd place - 80 points, 4th place - 70 points, 5th place - 60 points,
6th place - 50 points, 7th place - 40 points, 8th place - 30 points, 9th place - 20 points, 10th place - 10 points”

Although when the CPRA decided to move forward with the Wrangler Shootout it was intended to only give points in the Average, it had been posted to the contestants otherwise all season. Since these standings have been posted this way all year, the CPRA Board of Directors voted on Aug 17th that since this mistake was not brought to their attention until following Dawson Creek Rodeo, it would be unfair to the contestants to change the points system that the Contestants had been given all season.
Turning Out of Finals
Contestants who turn out of the Finals must notify the Armstrong rodeo office no later than 9:00AM, Pacific Time, Sunday Sept. 4.
A Two Hundred and Fifty dollar ($250) turn out fine will apply if contestant fails to notify by the specified time.
Contestants who are a notified turnout or contestants who are unavailable at the start of the section of their event will be replaced by the next available contestant; next is defined by the 2016 Wrangler Tour Standings.
CPRA reserves the right to roll contestants into the Finals (to total 10 contestants) in the event of turn outs. In case of ties, tiebreaker rules to decide the next contestant into the finals the procedure will be the same as determining the top (2) previously unqualified contestants; Canadian Standings as of Aug. 26, 2016
