The Colorama Rodeo will not be held this year, a decision Ridge Riders President George Kohout said it pained him to make April 15.
Kohout, who worked to bump the rodeo up to the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association this year, had been looking forward to a season that would bring in more cowboys than ever and more recognition to the event and the community.
But after making calls, he realized Colorama wouldn’t be alone in the disappointment. PRCA told him they’d already had over a 100 cancelations for the season, with more calling every hour.
Kohout said the latest word from Grant County Health District and the sheriff indicating that the local battle against the coronavirus is “not even at halftime yet” tipped his decision.
