Who gets the Best Seat at the Rodeo?

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to watch the Ramona Rodeo from the contestant’s point of view, this could be your opportunity.

Ramona Rodeo Queen Brittney Phillips stands in the bed of the Dodge Ram pickup that will provide the Best Seat at the Rodeo for winners and their guests in an opportunity drawing that will be held just before the start of each rodeo show this weekend.

By entering the “Best Seat at the Rodeo” drawing, some lucky winner will watch the rodeo right alongside the cowboy and cowgirl entrants.

The seats will be set up in the bed of a Dodge Ram pickup truck that will back into a spot in the Cowboy Host area. Two people at each show will have the opportunity to mingle with the cowboys in the Cowboy Host area, and the winnings include food and beverages.

“It’s such a unique drawing. I have a feeling many people won’t believe how much fun it is until they sit in the truck and feel it,” said Joani Georgeson, Ramona Rodeo director. “It’s something very few people will ever get to experience.”

Best Seat at the Rodeo tickets are $5 each; purchase of a rodeo ticket is required.

Just before each rodeo performance starts, announcer Andy Stewart will draw the winning name. That person and his or her guest “will get to walk down in front of everybody to the best seats,” said JoLinda Georgeson, Ramona Rodeo Queen coordinator.

Enter as many times as you wish; donations are appreciated. All proceeds go to the Ramona Rodeo Queen Travel fund.

Opportunity drawing tickets can be purchased when buying rodeo tickets online, at the Business Barn at 369 Main St., or at the rodeo before each performance.

Rodeo performances are in the Ramona Outdoor Community Center Fred Grand Arena, 421 Aqua Lane, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
