Thank you to everyone who made it to Ottumwa to compete!
Once again, BP (Elliot Oil) was a huge sponsor for the rodeo. They provided water for the contestants and crew, pizza for the contestants during slack Friday night, and also gave $50 fuel cards to each event winner!! Thank you to Andrew Woodard and family for the hospitality!
Thank you to the Greater Ottumwa Partners in Progress for planning the great event and to all of the sponsors who made it possible.
We had 374 total contestants and paid out just under $20,000 total to the contestants!
We hope you enjoyed stopping by the beautiful Greater Ottumwa Park over your Cowboy Christmas.
We’ll see ya next year!
What a great crowd at Cresco – they told us the stands held 4,000, and there weren’t many empty seats. I think everyone was happy, so thank you! I won’t complain at all that we got to rodeo on dry ground after 4.5 inches of rain the day before either – thank you to the committee. We understand the obvious (that it was pretty narrow), but we do the best with what we have. I’m so proud of the contestants, mostly the barrel racers and team ropers, for showing up and accepting the challenge without any complaints. Thank you to everyone who traveled north and to our MRA friends who came down to see us!

We met with sponsors in their places of business Saturday morning and they were all happy to give their hard-earned money towards the great event.

Total Payout: $18,771.80
Another year of record attendance! I think we’ve officially outgrown the Pavilion!
What a night – we had a range of contestants from first time competitors to PRCA Circuit Champions. We bucked 40 bulls with a few in slack. We got through a jam packed performance in just under 3 hours and finished the rest of a big night of slack in another 2.5 hours. We saluted the American worker and sang the National Anthem horseback – what a talented group of people we choose to surround ourselves with.
We have the hardest working crew there is and I’m so honored and proud to consider them my friends.
It was so good to see so many of you contestants after a long fall and winter!! What a great event for the first rodeo of 2021!!
