It was an exciting night in the arena filled with bulls and cowboys sponsored by Bank of Colorado.
Announcer Will Rasmussen and Barrelman Bert Davis kept the crowd entertained with witty banter once the chutes opened. On the floor keeping the riders safe was cowboy protection team Chuck Swisher, Dustin Konig and Wacey Munsell.
