Attention Rodeo Committees: The UPRA has established a COVID-19 Committee Relief Fund to help with additional rodeo costs, sponsor shortfalls, etc. as we navigate through these uncharted times in the rodeo industry. Please contact your stock contractor or the UPRA Office for additional information.
We have rodeos on the schedule coming up, if a rodeo is on the schedule and has entry dates, that rodeo is planning to have their event, however please understand, the pandemic of COVID-19 is changing daily, sometimes hourly. We should all expect changes, more reschedules and possibly some late cancellations. We will do our best to keep everyone updated as possible. All information we have on each event will be included with entry information.
It is our hope we can successfully help rodeo committees and stock contactors get rodeos up and running again. Every community, city, county, and state are different, rodeos may be heavily modified to follow compliance with all local, state, and federal guidelines. Guidelines for compliance at rodeos will be mandatory and strictly enforced, we strongly suggest everyone consider what is expected, if you cannot comply with the expectations, please do not enter, and/or attend the event. Non-compliant actions will be disqualified and ask to leave. Restrictions are not only mandatory, but also essential to the safety of everyone competing, working, and attending the event.
