Xtreme Bulls returns
to Sisters Rodeo
Xtreme Bulls, a bull-riding-only event, will return to Sisters Rodeo on Wednesday, June 5. The PRCA event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Sisters Rodeo grounds and close after the last bullride around 9 p.m.
"We had great competition our first year of Xtreme Bulls," said Sisters Rodeo President G.J. Miller. "The bulls were on their game, and beat some world-champion bull riders. We expect to have the same excitement this year, with the riders determined to take the night."
Xtreme Bull ticket are $15 for general admission open seatings, with children under 12 admitted free.
"We want to get more people out mid-week to enjoy this fun and exciting event," said board member Cathy Williams, who manages the rodeo ticket office. "We hope this good deal attracts more families, even in a busy time of the year."
Bullriding has become the most popular event for fans of rodeo. Seventeen PRCA rodeos across the nation will participate in this competition beginning in Fort Worth, Texas, and including San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Ellensburg.
Xreme Bulls at Sisters coincides with Xtreme Bulls in Union and is just ahead of Reno Rodeo the following week. "This makes it easier for bullriders to travel without having to crisscross the country," explained John Leavitt, board member and arena manager.
Money earned in Xtreme Bulls counts toward Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association World Standings, which determines the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifiers. The total national purse for this event is $520,000, with Sisters awarding $10,000 in purse monies.
