Big Bend Ranch Rodeo Awarded the
2020 WRCA Rodeo of the Year Award
The Big Bend Ranch Rodeo is extremely proud to announce that it has been named 2020 RODEO OF THE YEAR by the Working Ranch Cowboys Association (WRCA). The BBRR has been an official sanctioned WRCA rodeo for the past 20 years and is the 2nd sanctioned rodeo to be given this award.
The Big Bend Ranch Rodeo has been a leader among WRCA sanctioned rodeos in many areas: we are proud to be the 1st sanctioned rodeo to designate our proceeds for rodeo scholarships, we were the 1st to establish a Youth Competition as part of our rodeo weekend (that has spread to the WRCA as one of their weekend events) and we were also the 1st to have a “Buy a Cowboy a Meal” type program where we feed every contestant in addition to a hospitality tent where the cowboys and their families can get a hot meal.
The Big Bend Ranch Rodeo Committee is made up of hard working people who are dedicated to preserving the ranching way of life and providing a venue where working ranch cowboys can show off the skills they use in their everyday work and also have a little fun and maybe earn a little prize money. 2020 Committee members are: Gary Dunshee, John and MaryAnn Luedecke, Don Cadden, Mattie and Clayton Sargent, Ashley Wood, Stacey Wood, CJ Aragon, Jess and Colby Smith, Dennis Yadon, Paula Wilson and Lonnie Rodriguez, Tate McMullan and Chachi Hawkins.
This ranch rodeo could not happen every year without the terrific support of area businesses, restaurants and ranches and we are grateful for their continued interest in keeping the working cowboy traditions alive. Our hats are off to you all. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.
