There’s another major event cancellation, therefore cancellations of small events that are related. The Indian National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nev., has been cancelled. Some, if not all, of the GPIRA rodeos have been cancelled for this region as well, so if you were planning on going, you’d better check first. I do know that the one that was to be held in Interior, S.D. is cancelled.
The Championship of Champions Indian Relay finals have been RESCHEDULED to Sept. 18-20, at Casper, Wyo. Check out ticket sales as they might be limited due to the ever changing seating restrictions and suchlike.
The Big Sky Ranch Rodeo Association Finals committee understands that some of the qualifiying ranch rodeos were not held, therefore preventing some teams from making it to the finals.
