THE GREELEY STAMPEDE INDUCTED INTO THE PRO RODEO HALL OF FAME

08/12/2014

August 12, 2014 (GREELEY, CO) On Saturday, August 9 in Colorado Springs, the Greeley Independence Stampede was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame.  The ceremony took place outside of the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame Museum and included 9 other inductees including Saddle Bronc rider Glenn O’Neil, Steer Wrestler Byron Walker and Bull Fighter Miles Hare.

The Greeley Stampede was one of only 4 committees (Clovis Rodeo, Snake River Stampede, and Rowell Ranch Pro Rodeo) inducted during the ceremonies. 

James Herman, Greeley Stampede Rodeo Chairman, accepted the Belt Buckle and Bronze Statue. Herman said, “The 2014 Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame Committee Induction is an unparalleled tribute to all Stampede volunteers throughout the years.  It is an achievement which is not dominated by the accomplishments of one committee but shared by the successes of every volunteer and staff member since 1922.”

The Stampede also wanted to share this great honor with the community for their commitment to its success as well as all of the dedicated sponsors that have helped to support the event year-in and year-out.

This distinction puts the Stampede into an elite group of Rodeos throughout the US and Canada. It will be a standard to maintain as they work towards their 100th Anniversary in 2022 and beyond.

The Greeley Stampede completed the 92nd Annual event on July 6 and will wrap-up the 2014 event at the end of their fiscal year on September 31.  Get Western for the 93rd Annual Greeley Stampede will run June 25th – July 5, 2015.
