If one partner in the Team Roping does not show, the other partner will
have the right to choose a partner from the other Contestants that are
already entered in the rodeo. No Contestant may go more times than
allowed to make up the team. The Rodeo Secretary must be notified before
the start of the rodeo. After one man is declared not there and another
partner is substituted, you cannot change back to the original partner.
The partner that didn’t show will be liable for his own entry fees and
no turnout fine can be charged. The team will draw stock in the original
position. When a team has a PrePaid contestant Notify Turn Out, the
balance of that team will be allowed to find a replacement contestant (as
per rulebook guidelines). Said replacement will NOT be required to pay an
entry fee and any monies won by replacement contestant will count towards
standings, on respective side the replacement competes on (Header/Heeler).
