RBC I Columbine Park will be rockin’ this weekend.
Not with loud guitars and bangin’ drums.
But with cowboys and some of the meanest, baddest behemoths around.
Rangely’s Septemberfest celebration will feature the seventh annual Rock N’ Bull bull-riding event. The competition begins at 7 p.m. Saturday.
Rock ‘N’ Bull began in 2010 as a fundraiser for the rodeo and horsemanship programs at Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC).
Jed Moore, a retired veteran of bull riding, came up with the idea for a bull riding competition in 2010. “I thought, well, this town is having a festival, they ought to have a bull-riding event,” he said. Seven years later, Rock N’ Bull is still going strong with Moore at the helm and strong support from local sponsors.
The fundraiser will benefit CNCC programs, including the CNCC Rodeo Team, which Moore coaches.
The team has several great seasons under their belts and are excited for the coming year. They sent seven members to nationals in 2016 and have been “hot and heavy on the recruiting trail” ever since.
Don’t miss your chance to get up close and personal with some wild cowboys and wilder creatures.
