As we have done the last couple years, we will continue with a more traditional Grand Entry style start to the rodeo each week. This has proven to be fun and exciting for spectators and contestants alike! Contestants of all ages have joined in on the traditional celebratory kickoff to each rodeo performance. We appreciate all the contestants who have joined in to show their pride in the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo and we encourage all contestants to participate. In place of the Royalty Scholarships, we will be offering two $1,000 scholarships to a deserving contestants or volunteers. Watch for application details on the CWWRA web site.
