Minot rodeo makes changes to schedule, start times
Minot, N.D. (March 22, 2018) –Several changes are in store for the Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo, hosting the Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo in Minot, N.D. in October.
This year’s rodeo will be held on October 5-6-7, with a 7 pm start on Fri., Oct. 5, a 1 pm matinee and a 7 pm start on Sat., Oct. 6, and a 1:30 pm kickoff on Sun., Oct. 7.
In past years, the rodeo has had a Thursday evening performance but this year, it is replaced with a Saturday afternoon matinee. The purpose for the Saturday afternoon matinee is two-fold, said rodeo committee chairman Steve Bogden. It will be a convenience for cowboy and cowgirl contestants, as they will not need to be to Minot till Friday, taking away less time from work and school. Bogden also hopes attendance will increase for the Saturday matinee, compared to the Thursday show. “We hope we can get families who haven’t had the opportunity to go to the rodeo because of school or sports.”
The committee will offer discounted tickets for the Sat. matinee. Tickets are discounted by $10 from the other performances. Adult tickets will be $23 for gold and $13 for silver. Kids tickets will be $8.
Evening performances will begin a half-hour later than in past years (7 pm for Oct. 5 and 6).
For those with little ones, mutton busting will be expanded from eight sheep riders per performance to ten, and registration will take place from mid-August to mid-September.
For potential vendors at the Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo, all booths will be located in the Magic Place, the vendor area on the first level to the north of the building.
The Y’s Men’s Rodeo got its start in 1955 and is a not-for-profit event, with proceeds supporting the Triangle Y Camp at Garrison, N.D.
This year’s rodeo is October 5-6-7; tickets will go on sale in September.
