Location of Buckeye Rodeo

Just a heads up!!! We will be using the two covered arenas in Buckeye. The arenas are some distance apart, with that said everyone will need to pay close attention to what events are going on when. We will allow ample time for contestants to get to and from each arena for their events. Event order to be posted soon.

Contact 623-691-6900 for Stall information, leave a message regarding the number and type of stalls desired. You will not receive a call back unless there is an issue with your request.

In an effort to earn travel money for members that make the road to Nationals Marsha has put together a Gold Canyon Candle Fundraiser. If you are interested in participating in selling candles to raise travel money stop by the High School Trailer and pick up a packet and information. Candles are a great gift idea and with the holidays coming this is a great time for a fundraiser.

AHSRA Cowboy Christmas Silent Auction

"AHSRA Cowboy Christmas Silent Auction" will be held Saturday throughout the day, November 11th, 2017 in Buckeye.  To Benefit the Arizona High School Rodeo Association Student Board Members and Royalty to going to Mid Winter Conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming in January.  This is National Conference where all 50 states, Canada and Australia will be meeting and they will be learning great information and bring it back to our Arizona Association about what is happening in rodeo now and what to expect at Nationals. In years past Arizona was not represented, now it has become the duty of the Student Board Members and Royalty to represent Arizona at Mid Winter Conference and what an honor it is.  They are trying to make enough money to pay for their motel and plane tickets in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

We are asking each Contestant to bring one auction item to check in on Saturday.  It could be something as simple as pie (you know everyone loves pie) or as extravagant as NFR Box Seats (we can dream), it can be homemade or some tack you have never used that's just sitting in your tack room.  We appreciate anything and everything!  We understand that the rodeo road can be expensive, so if you are unable to bring something we understand also.  You can always bring some extra cash and do your Christmas shopping at our Auction also...

We want to "Thank You" in advance for helping us achieve our goals by donating to our Silent Auction and Bidding and Buying Items too. 

We will also be selling 50/50 Raffle Tickets, T-shirts and Campaign for Change

  Thanks, April Guin
