Rockin’ Bulls back in town this Saturday

Listen to this post

RANGELY | The bulls are back in town! If you’re hooked on an eight-second ride then Columbine Park is where you will want to be this Saturday, Aug. 31 at 7 p.m. for the 10th annual Rangely Rockin’ Bulls event. 

The cost for this action packed entertainment is $20 for VIP, $10 for adults, $5 for kids, and kids 3 years and younger are free. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Colorado Northwestern Community College Rodeo Team Scholarship Fund. Ten years ago CNCC Head Rodeo Coach Jed Moore organized the first Rockin’ Bulls Event and it has become a community favorite among the Septemberfest activities. 

How’s the competition work?

There are 10 different stock contractors representing Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, and Colorado bringing three bulls each, they are referred to as the “Bull Team.” Two different competitions will be happening simultaneously. The stock contractors or Bull Team have paid an entry fee in the hopes that they have the three best bulls at the event.  All of the bulls will be judged against each other. Thirty cowboys are also competing with the top six highest scoring qualified rides going into the championship round.  Cash and buckles will go to the top scoring cowboy and bull team.

NEW THIS YEAR:

Spectators can enjoy the addition of the JumboTron (video display large screen television technology) from the Western Park Arena in Vernal, Utah.

Coach Moore reminds fans to arrive early as the competition starts promptly at 7 p.m.  Come on out and enjoy a night of rough and rowdy entertainment and help raise money for the Spartan rodeo team.

Without the financial support of local people and businesses this event wouldn’t be possible. The CNCC Rodeo Team would like to thank the following sponsors:
