The WPRA Board of Directors is happy to announce that barrel racing will be part of the 2020 PRCA ProRodeo Tour program.
The Board approved the Tour based on thoughts that many of you provided last weekend in a member survey, as well as weighing the overall opportunity that the Tour presents to all members and to the sport of rodeo.
Regarding the member feedback received:
- 49% shared that they liked the Tour program
- 27% shared that they did not like the Tour program
- 11% wanted to know more details
- 7 % liked the Tour but did not like a particular part
- 6% had no opinion
Regarding the overall opportunity that the Tour provides:
- A total of approximately $450,000 is being distributed as sponsor money (over the committee added money) at Tour designated rodeos.
- The barrel race will receive an equal share of the Tour sponsor added money.
- The barrel race will be part of the television coverage being planned for 10-18 Tour rodeos.
