Carbondale Wild West Rodeo received a Grant for $5,000 recently from the Garfield County Discretionary funds. These grants are distributed quarterly.
The Town of Carbondale is also helping with some of the costs for the planned improvements.
The county grant and funds from the Town of Carbondale will be used for three much needed projects -- 1) Getting 110V power to the pavilion and concession area. 2) A new roping chute. 3) A storage shed for rodeo gear, shirts, vests, decorations, flags etc...

Our condolences go out to the Zordel family at the passing of Tomie Zordel on February 11th. Tomie's family moved to Aspen from Kansas when he was little. He was a ranch hand and took care of many ranches around the Roaring Fork Valley. Tomie also worked for Aspen Skiing Company for many decades. Tomie was a long time fixture of the local rodeo scene. His antics as rodeo clown and his roping skills and horsemanship will long be remembered. Tommy also was one of the famed horse-mounted Pitkin County Sheriff's Posse members. RIP Tommy.
