2015 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo President’s Letter


President’s Welcome

Welcome to the 2015 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Series! We hope you are as excited about it as we are! The rodeo is now in its 12th season and promises to be as exciting as ever. We plan to have the same exciting events as last year and we will add some new fun things to make it even better.

We have many people to thank, because without all these individuals and groups, the Rodeo Series would not be possible, so in no particular order, here we go!

First a big thank you to all of our sponsors. Without the sponsorship of numerous businesses and individuals, we would not have the financial ability to do this.

New sponsors are always welcome, so if you are looking for a great way to advertise and support the rodeo at the same time, please talk with us about it. We urge all the spectators and contestants alike, to support these sponsors that support the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo!

We would also like to thank the contestants, young and old who show up week after week and compete, putting on an excellent show for everyone to enjoy. We especially appreciate the younger competitors and their parents who support them, as they will be the ones to carry Rodeo into the future.

Next, we would like to thank you …………the spectators who support the rodeo, week after week, rain or shine. We love your enthusiasm for the sport of rodeo and we hope that you enjoy the Rodeo Series that we have all worked hard to bring to Carbondale.

Lastly, we would like to thank the volunteers who show up every week and help make this rodeo happen. Without these volunteers (in the red shirts) we could not produce this Rodeo Series. So, if you see one of these dedicated people, please tell them thank you! They will appreciate it!

The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association (CWWRA) is a non-profit 501 C-3 Corporation dedicated to keeping the Western Heritage alive in Carbondale. It is run by a volunteer Board of Directors who spend countless hours planning and producing the Rodeo Series, year after year.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo! If you have questions, please feel free to ask one of the volunteers or stop by the secretary’s shed and we will assist you with whatever you need.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to a great rodeo season in 2015!


Mike Kennedy, President
