Exclusive Club is Part of California Rodeo Salinas
Los Amigos del Rodeo Created to Fund Capital Improvements
The Salinas Sports Complex is home to the California Rodeo each July, the most well-known event held on the grounds. What people may not know is that the Salinas Sports Complex is a facility that is run year-round by the Rodeo Association who maintains the complex with a small staff on monies earned by the Rodeo Association through events such as the California Rodeo, Monster Jam and facility rentals. Upkeep of the grounds is expensive and budgeted out very carefully each year on a project by project basis. The Rodeo Association evaluated the use of its assets last year and decided that they should be creative and develop new ways to generate income for capital improvements. The Los Amigos del Rodeo club was born.
The Los Amigos del Rodeo is an exclusive group with membership limited to just 85 with 2 people allowed per membership. The Los Amigos members have access to a premium venue during the Rodeo with high end beverages and meals in their very own room that only members are allowed in. Members will receive a special Los Amigos del Rodeo buckle and/or pendant as well as 2 tickets to each Rodeo performance that grant access into their very own hospitality room as well as a seat to view the rodeo performance. During the year, members will be invited to an event to determine where funds from their club are allocated on the grounds; in 2011, the Los Amigos del Rodeo funds went towards a roof on the cowboy hospital, lighting over the bucking chutes and a gator to be used by Salinas Sports Complex grounds crews throughout the year.
