The Bozeman Stampede to help pay for practice livestock leases and the feed for that livestock. That way all our kids, scholarship and walk-ons have an equal opportunity to benefit from that gift based on whatever level of commitment they are willing to make to practice and improve. Needless to say that then frees up some other income to go for travel, books, fees, assistant coach compensation, etc. An additional shot of money is no small deal in a shoestring operation like ours. Many thanks to all of you.
The Bridger Mountains High School Rodeo Team is extremely grateful for the generous donation from the BS Rodeo. The money has been set aside to rent Rod Cline’s, Circle L Arena every Monday evening for the entire 2012 year. Providing a practice in a safe and inviting environment will and has helped every member on the team. We have kids starting in 6th-8th grade for Junior High and all through High School.
I have been told by parents that their kids can’t wait for Monday Practices. We are averaging 18-20 kids per practice and have seen much improvement since we got started. BS Rodeo, thank you very much for your donation. Our kids improvements and joy of being a part of the rodeo family, is because of you!
Gallatin County 4-H Teen Leaders were completely “blown away” by the Bozeman Stampede Rodeo’s generous contribution to their leadership program. 4-H Teen Leaders plan to use the funds to support a number of activities and events this summer. They design, organize, and run the 4-H Summer Camp for 9-13 year olds at Hyalite in June and will use some of the funds to help run the camp and provide scholarship assistance to campers. Teen Leaders will also use the funds to help teens participate in leadership conferences such as Regional 4-H Mini-Congress, 4-H Recreation Lab and MT 4-H Congress. This summer will be their first year hosting 4-H Teen Leaders from out of state – when 10 Texas teens will visit at the end of July.
