Days of ‘76, Black Hills Roundup Rodeos nominated for PRCA awards
The Days of ‘76 Rodeo was nominated to receive the PRCA Large Outdoor Rodeo of the Year award for 2019.
The Black Hills Roundup Rodeo was nominated in the Medium Outdoor Rodeo category.
Last year was the first time the Days of ‘76 Rodeo fell into the “large outdoor rodeo” category, but it has been honored as the small or medium rodeo of the year 18 times in the past.
“We take it as an honor to be mentioned among those five rodeos,” said Days of ’76 rodeo chairman Terry Caudill in the Rapid City Journal. “Just receiving the nomination is great recognition for us.”
“It’s all volunteer members of our committee that are out there opening the chutes and the gates and doing all the things in the arena that a lot of rodeos contract out, Caudill said. “We’re a working rodeo committee.”
The winners for each category will be announced at the PRCA Awards Banquet at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Dec. 4, according to PRCA.
