The field of 24 breakaway ropers is set for the first leg of the WPRA’s Cinch Playoff Series Finale in Puyallup, Washington, at the Washington State Fair Sept. 7–10, 2023.

With $30,000 in added money up for grabs, Puyallup is a stepping stone to the brand-new Governor’s Cup.

How did the ropers qualify for Puyallup?

To qualify for Puyallup, ropers had to be inside the top 24 in the Playoff standings by Aug. 27, 2023.

The NFR Cinch Playoff Series standings are points based. There are three levels of points based upon the total purse money of a given rodeo.

  •      Top Tier —more than $650,000 total purse
  •      Middle Tier — between $649,999 and $325,000
  •      Bottom Tier — less than $324,999

Points are distributed to each rodeo down to 40th place based on the fastest time or highest score. For rodeos with multiple rounds, the points are calculated based on the average. Tournament rodeos are more complicated, but points are assigned based on how far each competitor advanced through the tournament.

But Puyallup isn’t the end of the of the Playoff Series

The 2022 NFR Playoff Finale took place in Puyallup, Washington.  But that isn’t the close of the Playoff Series, like it was in 2022.

After Puyallup, the breakaway ropers who finish in the top four in Puyallup will meet up with the top eight in the 2023 WPRA Cinch Playoff Series standings (on the year) and head to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for the 2023 Cinch Playoffs Governor’s Cup.

The Governor’s Cup takes place Sept. 28-30, 2023 and offers a payout across eight events of $1 million on the final weekend of the 2023 ProRodeo season.

If a breakaway roper didn’t make it into Puyallup, can they compete in Souix Falls?

Here’s what the PRCA Ground Rules say on the matter.

“Contestants who qualify for the Cinch Playoff Series Rodeo in Puyallup, WA must compete at Puyallup in order to be eligible to be accepted as an entry at the Playoff Series Finale in Sioux Falls. Contestants who do not qualify for the Cinch Playoff Series in Puyallup will still be eligible to be accepted as an entry at the Playoff Series Finale in Sioux Falls if they satisfy the qualifications for the Finale based on the Playoff Series Standings as of September 18, 2023.”

Special thanks to Top Hand Ropes for their commitment to news in the breakaway industry all season long.
