Businessman’s Steer Decorating
Have you ever dreamed of participating in the Reno Rodeo but never quite got your big break? Businessman’s Steer Decorating (BSD) gives fans two ways to get in on the action. Entry of $125 will buy a sponsorship that comes with the opportunity to put together a two-person steer roping team that will attempt to decorate a steer in the arena by tying a ribbon on its tail. In addition to the publicity that comes with sponsoring a team, contestants and sponsors will receive Reno Rodeo tickets, a parking pass, nearly five minutes of glory in the famed Reno Rodeo arena and a chance to go home with the highly coveted Reno Rodeo BSD Championship belt buckle. Sign-ups and performances are assigned on a first come, first served basis and registration closes on May 31.
