The 55th Annual 101 Wild West
Will Be Held
June 12th thru 14th 2014
101 Rodeo Arena - Prospect
& Ash - Ponca City, OK.
As we prepare for our 55th
annual rodeo which is being moved to June 12, 13, and 14. I would like to update
you on Ponca City rodeo activities then we will explain why the move to June.
We are in the final phase of our 5 year upgrade plan which included new arena
fencing, new bucking chutes, new lighting, upgrade of overhead wiring, extended
and upgrade of Chute heaven seating, new mounting tower for instant replay score
board and a new cement dance floor. As you all know each and everyone one these
items takes money to complete and with the successful rodeo events we have had
over the years because of the great participation of our sponsors, the community
and the fans this has been successful and all of us on the rodeo board will
continue to plan for upgrades.
The foundation continues to research to provide the best in stock contracting
companies, announcers, sound companies, bull fighters, barrel men and specialty
acts to provide a very entertaining Rodeo event. Then we seek out bands for the
dance that follows the rodeo so that the fans can continue the festivities after
One area that continued to concern us was the availability and participation of
PRCA contestants for each of the events. Many factors have to be incorporated to
effectively draw them to your Rodeo such as time of year, availability of
surrounding rodeos for cost effective travel for contestants, added money, and
After extensive research the Board feels that by moving to June 12, 13 and 14 we
feel that we can provide a better choice for the contestants by aligning more
effectively with surrounding rodeos, better weather, and that is in the early
prime time of the rodeo season.
We look forward to seeing each and every one of you at our new June rodeo event.
Remember to keep checking back for additional details and updates or if you have
