October 6 Recruitment Event for Interested Volunteers

RENO, Nev. (October 4, 2017) – Each year it takes more than 500 dedicated volunteers to help the Reno Rodeo produce the longest-running, biggest, annual professional sports event in the area, known as the “Wildest Richest Rodeo in the West.”

“The volunteers represent the heart of the Reno Rodeo and truly are what make the rodeo possible,” said Bill Summy, 2018 Reno Rodeo President. “Recruitment events like this give us an opportunity to reach out to the community and meet some of the people that might want to get involved and be a part of our legacy – especially as we approach our 100th Anniversary.”

Anyone that is 18 years of age or older and is interested in learning more about what it takes to become a 2018 Reno Rodeo Wrangler is invited to a recruitment event at the Reno Rodeo Members Bar Oct. 6, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

Those interested will have a chance to meet with Reno Rodeo executives, learn more about the rodeo’s rich heritage and explore many volunteer opportunities. The event will also include food and drinks, raffle prizes, other giveaways and music from American Idol contestant, Molly Seals.

Additional information and the online volunteer application can be found at RenoRodeo.com under the “Get Involved” tab. Becoming a wrangler is the first step to becoming a member of the Reno Rodeo Association.

The Reno Livestock Events Center is located at 1350 North Wells Avenue, Reno, NV 89512. Reno Rodeo Members Bar is located behind the Reno Rodeo Arena under grandstand 5. Additional questions about the recruiting event and becoming a wrangler can be emailed to [email protected].
