The National High School Finals Rodeo is officially underway in Gillette Wyoming! Our town is alive with an additional 6,000 citizens over the next week. We are glad to have them here! The community of Gillette really gets behind these athletes and enjoys watching them put their talents to work.
Each day different rodeo athletes, families, and spectators are featured by the Gillette News Record. There are stories of triumph and heartache, but they are all stories of true life in the National High School Finals Rodeo.
The community of Gillette has rounded up nearly 900 volunteers and spent weeks, months, and even years preparing the Camplex Multi-Events Facility for the nearly 1500 competitors and their families. No other community hosting the rodeo does it like Gillette! No other community is able to get this many volunteers and support the rodeo, its competitors, and it's spectators quite like we do here in Gillette!
Best of luck to all the competitors. Don't forget to check out the NHSRA web site to follow the results from each performance. We are proud to call Gillette home and proud of the support we give to these kids!
