The Roundup Arena is an outdoor arena. The rodeo will go on, rain or shine. Our contestants pay their own expenses to the events that they compete at, pay their own entry fee too compete, and only receive a paycheck if they place or win in an event, so we feel it is our obligation to allow them the right to earn their paycheck. However, the safety of our fans, as well as our contestants and their families is of utmost importance to us. In the event of dangerous weather conditions, the event may be postponed until that danger has passed, then resumed to completion.
