SAN ANTONIO STOCK SHOW AND RODEO VOTED BEST IN THE BUSINESS FOR 3RD YEAR IN A ROW!
San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Wins PRCA’s Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year Accreditation
Las Vegas – The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo is honored to announce that
yet another banner will be displayed from the AT&T Center rafters when
the annual Stock Show and Rodeo takes place this January 31-February 17.
Amongst the four championship banners belonging to the Spurs, an unprecedented
third PRCA Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year banner will be added next to the
awards the Stock Show and Rodeo has received the last two years!
Several San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo management staff, Executive Committee
members and organization volunteers were on hand Wednesday night to accept
the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association’s Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year
“We are so proud to be recognized and nominated here with our industry peers,
but the real happiness comes from accepting this award on behalf of our 4000
plus volunteers that make our organization so special, as well as the entire
city of San Antonio and the surrounding communities that support us each
year!” SALE Executive Director and CEO Keith Martin said.
This win marks the third consecutive year the San Antonio Stock Show and
Rodeo has been named the recipient of this prestigious industry award and
the organization could not be more delighted; marking victories in 2005,
2006 and 2007.
SALE Chairman of the Board Tres Kleberg added, “This is extremely exciting,
incredible in fact. We pride ourselves in being a tight knit family
of volunteers that pulls together in all of our many committees and activities
to have a successful event year in and year out. Their dedication and
determination is what has allowed us to continue to not only receive national
recognition on a stage like this, but to carry out our mission of enhancing
education to the youth of Texas as well.”
San Antonio has been innovators in the sport of rodeo during this time period
by limiting contestant entries to bring only rodeo’s top competitors to the
event, recruiting world-class animal athletes and bucking stock from the
nation’s best contractors, increasing its purse size to over $1 million in
2007 to make it one of the top two paying regular season rodeos in the country
and covering the entry fee contestants pay to enter the rodeo competition
Each year, the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association honors the best of
the best in rodeo professionals, stock contractors and rodeo committees during
their annual Contract Personnel Awards Banquet at the South Point Hotel and
Casino in Las Vegas before the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, the Super
Bowl of the rodeo industry, kicks off at the Thomas & Mack Center. Because
nominees and winners are voted on by their peers in the industry, it is considered
a great honor to be selected.
