Carbondale Wild West Rodeo has added a new award and belt buckle this year. It is the “Trent Goscha Sportsmanship Award” and it will be given annually to a deserving rodeo and/or Gymkhana participant. Watch for details on how to nominate someone that you feel deserves this award.
The big news this year is the addition of the new roof over the large set of bleachers! We have been working toward that for years and it is finally becoming a reality. Enough funds were left that the announcer’s stand (crow’s nest) is being completely re-built as well. A big thanks to the Garfield County Mineral Lease District and matching funds by the Town of Carbondale and the CWWRA Board made it happen!
Welcome to the 2017 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Series! We hope you are as excited to be here as we are! The Rodeo is now in its 13th season and promises to be as fun and exciting as ever! Lots of great rodeo action, good food and good friends are at the rodeo every Thursday night all summer.
The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association Board has established the Trent Goscha Sportsmanship Award which will be presented annually at the Finals Rodeo beginning in 2017 in memory of Trent. Trent was a bright light in the community helping with the local gymkhanas, participating in the Roaring Fork Ranch Roping and always a presence at the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo encouraging others to do their best. Trent, you will be missed.
