It’s voting time in the PRCA

Twisted Rodeo - Tue, 09/16/2014 - 10:45

I saw the full list for of PRCA end-of-the-year-award nominees yesterday, and it’s filled with some of the most talented, hard-working people I’ve worked with.

BallotIt is my honor at every rodeo at which I’m hired to share time with these people. They work hard for their wares week in and week out, and these nominations are the annual pots of gold at the end of a long, long rainbow. Why is it so special?

Because voting by the PRCA membership decides the winner in each category.

Here’s the rub: Because the association has refused for so many years to utilize the technology available to put the voting online, PRCA members must, first, be home in order to get their mailed ballot. That’s pretty tough at the end of the rodeo season for those that are on the road for so many weeks a year and are chugging along with hopes of qualifying for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo or realizing some annual goals. Hopefully that will change very soon.

Despite the challenges, I urge my friends that are members to vote and mail your ballots back in by the deadline. The only way to sway the annual awards ceremony away from being an annual celebration of the status quo is to have a high voter turnout. Vote your conscience or vote for your friends, but vote.

If you haven’t seen the list, it looks like this:
