WRCA World Championship Ranch Rodeo Logo

The annual WRCA World Championship Ranch Rodeo is held at the Amarillo Civic Center in November each year in Amarillo Texas. Fourteen working ranch teams who have won a berth in WRCA Ranch Rodeo qualifying events have an opportunity to compete for the world championship title.

I began covering the events by focusing on the dedicated volunteers who make it possible to host all the competitors and their families, vendors, and thousands of spectators. Here are a few examples of the volunteers in action and other scenes during World Championship week.

Most of the volunteers have worked every championship series for more than 25 years but others will drop in only for a few hours. Let's take a look at the various jobs the volunteers do in order to make it all happen.

You may see several events on the same day. I can only pick one to go next depending on where I was located during the prior event I attended. Fuel is expensive these days!
