There are many facets in the world of rodeo, from the variety of events to the personalities of the contestants to the contractors and committees.
Each has a vital role in the sport’s success.
But the backbone of rodeo isn’t the roper, wrestler or rider, nor is it an amazing animal athlete; the driving force behind rodeo’s greatness is the volunteer, the person who raises the money, promotes the event, paints the fence, moves the livestock, works the ground, sells the tickets, puts up the banners, sells the concessions, handles the hospitality and thousands of other duties that go unnoticed to most folks in the community.
World champions could enter any rodeo they want, but no rodeo will succeed without the volunteers who produce it.
Thanks for all the work you do.
