The San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association (SASSRA) announced today that it was selected to be on the final ballot for “Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year.” A notification from the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) was received last Friday in regards to the nomination.
For the second consecutive year, the San Angelo event finds itself with esteemed company as it goes head-to-head for votes in a very exclusive category of rodeos. With its supporting volunteers and local population of 100,000, this rodeo will be competing for the title against other indoor venues such as Denver, Fort Worth, and San Antonio that have base populations that are 20 to 30 times the size of our city. “The support of the community, sponsors, fans and contestants makes this rodeo, the rodeo, to attend”, said Erwin Schwartz, Jr., President of the Stock Show and Rodeo Association. “The reputation of excitement and world-renowned contestants places the event in a group of exclusive category.”
“If you review the ballot and look down the list of the nominees, in most categories it’s a list of outstanding contractors and entertainers that have performed at the San Angelo Rodeo”, says Executive Director Justin Jonas, “This speaks to the commitment by the Association to provide the best product we can for the fans of San Angelo.”
The preliminary voting was cast by electronic ballot from PRCA contestants, PRCA contract personnel, and other PRCA rodeo committees in August and the field has been narrowed down to this final ballot with the category winner being announced at the annual PRCA Banquet held in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 6th, 2017.
