Officials in Crook County are all smiles today because a prestigious rodeo coming to town. It's what you would call a big "get". Officials at the crook county fairgrounds announce that they will host the 2011 Northwest Professional Rodeo Association Finals this fall. Fairgrounds Manager Patrick Wood says they have been working on getting the rodeo for years: “It’s kind of a natural fit for both of us. We have some excellent rodeo grounds. Prineville is known as the “Cowboy Capital” of Oregon. And it was a good fit for them because they bring in contestants from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana in some cases. And so they've traveled around a bit in the last several years and they asked us to bid on them recently." Wood says they expect up to 5000 competitors and spectators during the September rodeo. And, he says that during September, which usually is considered off season, this will be a welcome addition to the community.
