Five Southern California PRCA sanctioned rodeos have announced the creation of the So-Cal Rough Stock Series. Beginning with the 2016 season, rough stock contestants who ride in all five rodeos will be eligible for bonus money at the end of the season. Contestants will be awarded points depending on how they place in each of the rodeos. The aggregate leader at the end of the season in each of the three rough stock events will win $3,000. Second place pays $1000, and third place pays $500.
“This is a way for us to increase participation in our rodeos by providing cowboys incentive to travel to Southern California to compete. $3,000 will buy a lot of gas, so we are hoping to entice cowboys who might not currently travel to our rodeos to give us a second look.”
Participants must compete in all five rodeos to be eligible for prize money and all PRCA Card and Permit holders are eligible to participate.
Participating rodeos for the 2016 season are:
San Dimas Western Days Rodeo – Oct 3-4, 2015
Industry Hills Charity Pro Rodeo – Oct 10-11, 2015
Norco Mounted Posse Rodeo – Aug 19-21, 2016
Poway Rodeo – Sept 23-24, 2016
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Rodeo Sept 23-25, 2016
“Our goal is to increase the number of participating rodeos in the future so we can gather enough money to open the series up to the timed event cowboys and cowgirls as well.”
