1. Contest of Skill Pertaining to the "Christmas in July" Contest.
The "Christmas in July" contest ("Contest") is a contest of skill designed to increase consumer awareness of and interest in the sport of rodeo. The results of the Contest will be derived from the final results of certain professional rodeo events sponsored or approved by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association ("PRCA") that start with at least one performance in July. The official PRCA final standings as posted by the PRCA on July 28, 2014, shall provide the basis for calculating the Contest winners.
This Contest runs from July 1, 2014 until July 28, 2014. The value of the Prizes to be awarded is approximately $20,000.00
This Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, local and municipal laws and regulations. Each Contestant will compete against all other contestants that are eligible to compete for overall prizes. The winning Contestant will be the Contestant who uses his or her skill and knowledge of relevant rodeo participants, and livestock, rodeo rules, and the rules governing this Contest to accumulate the highest point totals. One point will be awarded for each dollar of winnings earned by the professional rodeo cowboys participating in the rodeo events sponsored or approved by the PRCA during the Contest period and who are listed in the participant listings of the Contest. This Contest is for personal use and entertainment purposes only and may not be used for any form of gambling. Chances of winning are dependent on the total number of entries received and the skill used by all Contestants. In case of a tie among Contestants, whether the tie occurs for a weekly portion of the Contest or the entire Contest, the winning Contestant shall be determined by utilizing the following tie breakers
First tie breaker - The Contestant who predicts the highest overall team winnings for the Contest or a portion of the Contest for that Contestant's "tie breaking team."
Second tie breaker - the Contestant that most closely predicts that Contestant's overall team winnings for the week or the entire contest.
Third tie breaker - the Contestant with the smallest difference between (a) Contestant's predicted overall team winnings for the week or Contest and (b) the actual overall team winnings won by the rodeo participants selected by that Contestant.

In the event of a dispute about the identity of a Contestant, PFR reserves the right to demand proof of identity satisfactory to PFR in its sole discretion. Entries submitted by email will be deemed to have been made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of entry. An authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization or body (i.e. business, education institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.

5. Lost entries
PFR is not responsible for entries or transactions, that are corrupted in web transmission, late, misdirected, mutilated, lost, incomplete, incorrect, inaccurate, tampered with, damaged, altered, illegible, stolen, inaccurate, or garbled, whether caused by a Contestant, equipment, or technical malfunction or by human error, telephone, computer, online or technical error or malfunctions (including busy lines or disconnections).
6. Fees and Charges
There is no entry fee, payment, or purchase required to enter this Contest. However, Contestants agree to pay all applicable charges and fees arising out of use of the Site and participation in the Contest such as data charges, phone line charges, internet hosting fees or any other charges of any kind that relate to a Contestant's internet usage or email account. You agree to be solely responsible and liable for all such charges.
Following completion of each event or day of competition, the pertinent results will be selected from PRCA data and posted on the PFR website. Occasionally changes or corrections will be made following an event where, for example, they are necessary due to errors in initial postings or by changes to the results. If a change or correction is required, it will be included in final computations and can affect all Contestants. No results are official until two weeks after the end of the Contest unless the results are subject to dispute of any kind in which case the results will be made final at the conclusion of the dispute resolution process. The official winner will be determined at that time.
8. Injuries/No Shows/Re-Rides
Each Contestant selects all rodeo participants at their own risk subject to the following where applicable. After the rodeo event has begun, if a rodeo participant is injured during the event, does not participate, is disqualified, or cannot continue in the event or any part of it for any reason whatsoever, Contestants will not be allowed to choose a replacement rodeo participant. Contestants will not be able to receive any points concerning the now non-participating rodeo participant which may affect the Contest outcome and winnings. If before a rodeo event begins a rodeo participant is injured, does not participate, is disqualified, or cannot make the event for any reason whatsoever, Contestants will have until PFR entries close for that event to chose a new rodeo participant and can attempt to change the Contestant's team composition by contacting PFR via email, telephone, or facsimile transmission. If a Contestant's proposed changes are received by PFR before entries close and in sufficient time before the rodeo event begins, PFR will use reasonable efforts to modify the Contestant's team composition. PFR cannot guarantee the changes will be made prior to the time entries close. If the Contestant's proposed changes are made, points will then be awarded to Contestants based upon the new team composition. If the Contestant's proposed changes are not received or made for any reason whatsoever, the team composition will not change, the Contestant will receive points based upon the originally submitted team composition and will therefore not receive any points in the event for the now non-participating rodeo participant.
In certain cases to be determined by PFR in its sole discretion, replacement participants or team changes may also be allowed before or after any rodeo event begins. If special allowances are made, such allowances and any pertinent Contest Rule modifications, will be posted on the PFR website within a reasonable time. Contestants are responsible for keeping track of any allowances and pertinent Contest Rule modifications and will not be notified of such allowances and modifications. PFR does not assume any responsibility for making any special allowances or Rules modifications nor any liability for refusing to do so.
Special rules apply for team roping events. If one of the team roping participants is injured during the event, does not participate, is disqualified, or cannot continue in the event for any reason whatsoever, and the PRCA allows the remaining team member to select a replacement team member from rodeo participants already entered in that rodeo, Contestants will receive points for the remaining team member's winnings but will not receive points for the replacement team member's winnings. All winnings of the remaining team member will be counted as points for the Contestant's team, but the winnings of the replacement team member will not be counted. If the PRCA doesn't allow a team member replacement or if for any other reason the remaining participant is unable to continue to participate in the rodeo event without a replacement team member, the Contestant will not receive any points for that team and will not be permitted to choose a wholly new team.
Special rules apply for go-round money in all events. If in any event there are only two qualified scores, the rodeo participants will win first and second go-round winnings and only those amounts will be counted towards a Contestant's point total. Even though the two rodeo participants may also receive the third through sixth place winnings, the third through sixth place winnings will not be counted towards a Contestant's point total. PFR will not notify Contestants of injuries or other reasons for a rodeo participant's non-participation in a rodeo event, but will, if reasonably possible, post information received by PFR concerning these issues on the PFR website. Contestants are responsible for keeping track of any reasons for non-participation from all sources and cannot rely on PFR or its website.
In no case will the sixteenth place rodeo participant be eligible to be added to any team even if that sixteenth place rodeo participant is entered into a rodeo event for any reason. In the case of a re-ride in any event, you will receive a score only for that re-ride. All terms set forth in other provisions of these Rules, especially those rules concerning entries, apply equally to attempted Contestant changes or modifications to entries.
