MINOT, ND – The flooding may have dampened the spirits of the people of Minot, ND, but it won’t rain on the Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo.

Even though the State Fair Center in Minot sustained some flooding damage, the Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo will take place there Oct. 6-10.

For the fifth year, Minot will host the Ram Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo, the championship event for pro rodeo in North and South Dakota. Nearly 100 cowboys and cowgirls will compete in seven events for the title of Badlands Circuit champion.



The rodeo is a fundraiser for Triangle Y Camp at Garrison, ND, and its Friday, Oct. 7 performance is the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” night, where monies are raised for cancer rehabilitation at the Trinity Health Care Exercise Rehabilitation program at the Minot Family YMCA.

The 2011 rodeo will serve as a kind of “pick-me-up” for the Minot area, said chairman Fred Beuchler. “The community is going to need something. We’ve been beaten down.” About one quarter of the area was flooded, with 11,000 people evacuated and 4,100 homes damaged. “The rodeo will be a piece of normalcy” for the citizens of Minot, Beuchler said. “We even talked about planning a kick-off party for the rodeo, to get some rah-rah spirit back.”



Beuchler grew up on a farm/ranch south of Minot and enjoys being part of the rodeo committee. “For me, it’s the rodeo spirit, working with a variety of people, and raising money for a good cause. I went to (Triangle Y) camp, and I have two young kids who will go to camp someday. It’s a huge part of why I’m involved with this.”

This year’s Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo will be Oct. 6-10, with performances on Oct. 6-9 at 6:30 p.m. and a Sunday, Oct. 10 matinee at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are available online at http://www.MinotYsMensRodeo.com and go on sale at the Dakota Square Mall on Sept. 24. The rodeo is sponsored by your Touchstone Energy Electric Cooperatives and 4-Bears Casino & Lodge. For more information, visit the Web site at http://www.MinotYsMensRodeo.com or call 701-852-5577.
