SAN ANTONIO STOCK SHOW & RODEO VOTED PRCA’S LARGE INDOOR RODEO OF THE YEAR FOR A RECORD TWELVE CONSECUTIVE YEARS

No Comments

LAS VEGAS, NV  –  The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo was awarded the 2016 Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) at an awards ceremony with a record setting 11,000 attendees on Wednesday night, November 30th, held in conjunction with the National Finals Rodeo.

 

With Wednesday’s award, the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has won Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year for an unprecedented Twelve (12) consecutive years. The designation by the PRCA is considered the highest honor in the sport of rodeo worldwide because nominees and winners are voted on by PRCA rodeo contestants, contract personnel, committees and members.

 

The award was received by San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo’s Executive Director & CEO Keith Martin, Chairman of the Board Joe Soules, President Cody Davenport, Immediate Past President Joe Hutchison and Executive Committee Vice President Clint Swindall.

Executive Director & CEO Keith Martin commented, “It means so much to us that our peers in the industry honor us in this way. We accept this award on behalf of over 6,000 volunteers that are the heart and soul of our organization—they move in dirt, set fences, clean stalls, cook meals for contestants and greet patrons with a smile.  They are irreplaceable, and their Texas hospitality is legendary. And when the Rodeo ends, they start working to make it even better next year. We are grateful to the community of San Antonio and the great state of Texas — devoted supporters of both our event and mission to help educate the youth of Texas. We are also thankful for the financial support of our loyal sponsors and auction contributors.”

 

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has been an innovator to the sport of rodeo with its tournament style, bracket format and by hosting rodeo’s top competitors. This February, these competitors will vie for over $1.6 million in prize money — the richest regular season payouts in the PRCA. The organization researches and recruits world-class animal athletes from North America’s best stock contractors and books internationally renowned performers. It also hosts one of the largest Junior Livestock Shows in the nation—over 70,000 animals will come and go from the rodeo grounds over the course of the 18 day show.

 

The 68th annual San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is held on February 9-26, 2017 at the AT&T Center/Freeman Coliseum grounds. Individual tickets for each PRCA Rodeo and concert start at $15 and may be purchased on the SA Rodeo mobile app, at www.sarodeo.com, the Rodeo Ticket Office (located at the Southwest Corner of the AT&T Center), or by calling 1-877-63-RODEO (1-877-637-6336).

 

Let’s Rodeo San Antonio! February 9-26, 2017

 

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo takes place February 9-26, 2017.  It has received the PRCA Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year award for twelve consecutive years.  Established in 1949, it has grown to be one of the largest and most prestigious single events in the city with over 2 million visitors entered the grounds in 2016. The success of the organization is attributed to over 6,000 volunteers who give countless hours to the organization. With community, donor and volunteer support, the organization has donated over $171.4 million to the youth of Texas through scholarships, grants, endowments, auctions, a calf scramble program and show premiums.

We kick things off by talking all things handgunning and pistols with STI’s longtime Technical Services Manager David Cupp. In 22 years with STI International, David has seen and done it all, joining the Austin, TX based pistol manufacturer when it had merely 8 employees – a far cry from the 100 plus today! Anyway, we discuss some tips on how to become a more accurate shooter. Plus, David breaks down what caliber is the most popular for both competitive shooting as well as concealed carry. What about bullet selection for both applications? We cover all that, much more and discuss the latest from STI!

2

Then our longtime friend Derrick Ratliff- CEO of Horizon Firearms drops in to talk calibers and bullet selection for the 3 most common mammals hunters come across in the Southern United States. Of course this is a little subjective, but Derrick has years of experience not only building guns for whitetail, hogs and coyotes but he also hunts each religiously. There is no right or wrong answer, but you can better your kill odds by selecting the ideal caliber and bullet for each.

3

Next we break down late fall/early winter bass patterns with 2016 Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year Gerald Swindle. The Alabama native’s historic season was one for the ages as he claimed his second AOY crown (2004 being the other). Gerald dispels some common misconceptions about bass behavior during cold weather months. He also gives us some of his favorite baits and techniques to pull in healthy limits this time of year.

4

Elite Archery President Eric Griggs drops by to talk some archery tips and the latest and greatest from the most shootable bow manufacturer out there. We discuss the evolution of the archery industry and some new stuff from both Elite and Scott Releases with the longtime professional archer.

Join us Saturday morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio!
