Rodeo Faces Uncertainty After 2015

In making a request to The Dalles City Council asking for assistance in funding marketing for the 50th anniversary of the Fort Dalles Rodeo, Rodeo Association President Damon Hulit mentioned the possibility the 2015 event could be the final one.  The rodeo’s Milt Tumilson Arena is on land formally owned by Northwest Aluminum that is currently on the market, and is leased to the rodeo on a year-to-year basis.  Hulit says the possibility the rodeo could soon have no home continues to linger, adding a search for other locations has not been fruitful.  Hulit does say rodeo organizers are concentrating on making their 50th anniversary event in 2015 a celebration of its history.
