LONGVIEW, TX - The National Bucking Bull Association & East Texas Tourism Association are proud to announce the dates are set for the Budlight Bull Bash Tour 2009 to be held at the Longview Rodeo Arena on Saturday, October 3rd @ 8:00pm.
"Every year we try to make this bull riding event bigger & better", says Mary Ramos, Executive Director of East Texas Aourism Association, "We work hard at making this a professional family fun event."
In association with the National Bucking Bull Association this year's focus is on the bulls. The NBBA produces bull riding events all over Texas and it is one place that the Stock Contractors get to shine. The Stock Contractors will pay an entry fee for each of their bulls and have a chance at winning a $10,000 check. An event like this is the best place to showcase the breeding programs that have evolved through the years.
This is also a great time to highlight one of the most known Bull riders in rodeo history. Matt Austin is a PRCA World Matt Austin Champion and CBR World Champion. He will be featured
at Bull Bash Tour and will be available to sign autographs and help with announcing.
Kids 7 and under are invited to participate in the Calf Scramble with a $200 first place prize.
