Big Week Bull Riding VIP Rules/Regulations

Bull Riding Sponsor & Guest Code of Conduct

Thank you for supporting the Big Week Bull Riding event of the California Rodeo Salinas. After the 2020 year, we are excited to welcome our Rodeo family back to the Salinas Sports Complex. We are looking forward to seeing you there and are dedicated to making this a great and safe experience for all our sponsors and your guests. Please help us make this an enjoyable event by adhering to our Sponsor VIP Code of Conduct detailed below:

  • Respect the staff; they are volunteers and your fellow community members. Be mindful of the staff/volunteers and follow their direction when asked.
  • Help us maintain a friendly and welcoming environment by respecting other guests and sponsors.
  • Do not pass your credentials to others after entering the Sponsor Hospitality Areas. Each badge number is assigned to your company and is recorded prior to your arrival to prevent duplicates.
    • If you are observed passing punched/torn credentials to others, you will be asked to leave, your re-entry will be denied, and your sponsor will be notified of the violation.
  • Please observe and obey posted signage, ex. “no guests beyond this point, etc.”
  • Please do not smoke in the tent.
  • 1 Drink may be taken out of the Sponsor Hospitality VIP areas.
  • No food will be allowed out off the Sponsor Hospitality VIP tent at any time.
  • Do not pass food or drink out of Sponsor Hospitality VIP areas.
  • Please respect the entry/exit policies, location signs, and our official opening/closing times.
  • Children should not be allowed to climb on fences. The track fence is there for guests’ protection.
  • Strollers are to be left outside of the Sponsor Hospitality VIP Tent area; they pose a tripping hazard when placed in the tent. Please ask a committee member for directions to the designated stroller holding area.
  • No animals allowed.
  • Bathrooms for sponsors are located outside the Sponsor Hospitality VIP Tent under the West Grandstand.
  • Please inform your guests of tent policies and your expectation for their good behavior. Their behavior is a reflection on your sponsorship, your brand, and your family.
  • Persons behaving with disorderly conduct will be asked to leave the sponsor area and prevented from returning. For repeat offenders, the Sponsor committee will contact the sponsor and document the offense, which could compromise your future sponsorship opportunities.
  • Rules are subject to change at any time, at the discretion of staff. Please check back frequently for any changes or updates.

Again, we thank you for your support and understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Sincerely, the Sponsorship Team
