Details:

The rodeo will be held from June 18-27 at the Livestock Events Center off Wells Ave. Our detachment will have a 10x10 booth, and has been allotted 2 parking spaces, and 2 entrance badges. We will purchase 3 extra badges at $5 each for volunteers. The plan is for members to meet at the Denny's Restaurant on 6th Street, and drive to our assigned parking spaces in 2 cars. We hope to have 5 members each day at the rodeo, with at least one member in the booth at all times. Other members at the rodeo will take turns in the booth, and can walk around the rodeo when appropriate.

 

The booth is to be manned on weekdays from 16:00- 22:00. On Sat-Sun the booth will be manned from 12:00noon-22:00. At the end of each day, those volunteers that will not return for the next day's events, will turn in their badge so a different volunteer can use the badge the next day. More info will be given at the June meeting.

 

  • Don Enea has a sign in sheet, and needs volunteers to work each day, even if only for a few hours.

  • Website for the event is here: http://www.renorodeo.com/
