WHAT:      PTR Parking at 136th World’s Oldest Rodeo®

WHEN:     4-7 PM June 28th– July 4th (and 10AM-1PM on Saturday July 1st)

WHERE:   Prescott Frontier Days Rodeo Grounds, Prescott

Once again, we’ve been given the opportunity to help fund our trail work activity by parking cars at the eight performances of The Worlds Oldest Rodeo® which will be held Wednesday June 28th through Tuesday July 4th at the Prescott Frontier Days Rodeo Grounds.  Volunteers will help direct parking, shuttle patrons, etc. from roughly 4-7 PM each day (plus a 10AM-1PM shift on Saturday morning, July 1st). 

This is a fun event, and once parking is done you can grab some food and watch some of the action from Rodeo Hospitality.  To volunteer for this event, please download and complete the linked waiver form and bring it to the June 5th PTR meeting (or e-mail PrescottTrailRiders@gmail.com ).


ACTION NEEDED- Support the Blue Ribbon Coalition’s by voicing your concerns of the Bureau of Land Management’s proposal to sell and lease land for “Conservation Leases”.  This change to the Federal Land Policy Management Act (FLPMA) would be problematic for various reasons.
