Rodeo Slack: Second Round of Steer Wrestling
SAN ANGELO, TX. – The San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo is full of fun cowboy/ cowgirl greatness and if you haven’t had your fill and want to see more, the rodeo has slack.
The rodeo slack is defined as an overflow of contestants competing. The show is limited to nine performances and a short-go, with approximately ten contestants per event in each performance, so 1,200 contestants count not fit into the nightly performance and that is why there is slack.
In San Angelo, slack is two full go-rounds in timed events including Calf Roping, Team Roping, Steer Wrestling, and Barrel Racing.
Contestants compete for the fastest time in each round for a piece of the prize money. Contestants with the average time ranking in the top 10 of all runs, including those in the PRCA performances, will qualify to compete in the PRCA finals.
The last of the slack for Steer Wrestling is being held at the Coliseum today at 10:00 a.m.
So if you want to see more rodeo fun and a long list of performers, it is open to the people who haven’t had their rodeo fill!
Contestants have to compete under a permit status until they win a minimum of $1,000 at PRCA rodeos before earning a PRCA card.
At San Angelo the rodeo committee recognizes both contestant levels, PRCA card and permit holders and has been a launching pad for several PRCA cowboys as they begin to compete and become the great rodeo legends.
