Update on the Grievance Process for Chad Masters and Kinney Harrell

No decision from the Grievance Review Committee.

From the PRCA: 

Team ropers Chad Masters and Kinney Harrell reached the final stage of their Step 3 Grievance Procedure on Nov. 24, hoping to get a reversal of the PRCA's decision to grant Tom Richards and Cesar de la Cruz the final spots into the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo team roping field.

Richards and de la Cruz won their grievance to be included into the WNFR on Oct. 31, which bumped Masters and Harrell from the field.

Masters and Harrell then began the process of their three-step grievance, in which the first two steps were denied.

The third and final step is a Grievance Review Committee of three or five members, which occurred Nov. 24. However, at press time for this release, no final decision had been made.
