As the Waldo Canyon Fire encroaches on Colorado Springs, forcing
evacuation of more than 32,000 people and destroying an unknown number
of homes, it’s also having an effect on the horse world.
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association
headquarters in Colorado Springs was evacuated, shutting down the
ProCom central entry system that allows rodeo contestants to call in 24
hours a day to enter rodeos and get their roughstock draws and other
PRCA director of communications Kendra Santos said that all entry
deadlines have been bumped back a day. Rodeos that were set to close
Wednesday will now close on Thursday.
