Steamboat briefs: Pro Rodeo Series named Small Rodeo of the Year

The Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series was recently selected as the 2016 Mountain States Circuit Small Rodeo of the Year, according to a news release from the Steamboat Springs Public Information Office.

The award was presented by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association the last weekend in October at the RAM Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeo in Loveland.

The Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series is sanctioned by the PRCA, which includes 12 geographical regions, or circuits. The Pro Rodeo Series is part of the Mountain States Circuit, which encompasses Colorado and Wyoming.

Rodeos are selected through a process involving nominations from contestants, rodeo personnel and stock contractors in the circuit. Contestants participating in the circuit finals then vote for the winner of the award. The award categories include Small Rodeo, Medium Rodeo, Large Rodeo, Most Improved Rodeo and Best Ground.

Other nominees for the award included Yuma County Fair & Rodeo, Earl Anderson Memorial Rodeo and A Tribute to the Great American Cowboy.

The Pro Rodeo Series was also nominated for Most Improved Rodeo and Best Ground. It has won the Mountain States Small Rodeo of the Year award for the past six consecutive years.

The Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series takes place every Friday and Saturday from mid-June through mid-August and is presented by Wrangler and the city of Steamboat Springs.

Steamboat seeks input about updating sign code

The city of Steamboat Springs is updating its sign code and asking for input from the community. The sign code regulates the size, location and other aspects of signage on private land for commercial, industrial, institutional and residential uses throughout the city.

The city will host a community open house Dec. 1 at Centennial Hall. Information will be available for review, and planning staff, as well as consultants, will be on hand to answer questions and share ideas about signage in the community.
