UA Cossatot Colts Rodeo Coach, Valerie Stone, is expecting this to be UAC’s largest and most entertaining rodeo yet. Stone said, “The quality of the UA Cossatot College Rodeo is comparable to any professional rodeo you will go to.”

All military personnel (past, present, and future) can get in free Friday night with a government-issued military ID.

Saturday night is championship night. Ticket giveaways can be found on the UA Cossatot Facebook page.

announcer Doug Mathis will be joining the rodeo for his second year. JC Productions will provide music and sound.
