Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo to sell tickets online

Farm Forum

Minot, N.D. – The Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo is taking another step into the electronic age.

Tickets for its annual rodeo, which is October 9-12, will be sold online.

The move was made to benefit the fans, says 2014 chairman Rob Buchholz. “Our thought is, we’re attempting to make it easier for our customers, so, right from their computer or smart phone, they can purchase their tickets. They won’t need to go to a separate location to buy them.”

The tickets are on sale now at the rodeo website (MinotYsMensRodeo.com) and will also be available at the gate the nights of the rodeo.

Online ticket sales will also help the committee with better analytics. “With a system like we have, we’ll know exactly where we’re at, which tickets are sold, and it’ll help us identify our customers better,” Buchholz said. “We encourage fans to get their tickets online, and not wait till the days of the shows,” Buchholz said. “Ticket sales have been strong, and we don’t want any disappointed fans who can’t purchase tickets because they’re sold out.”

This year’s rodeo is the 60th annual event; for the past seven years, the rodeo has been home to the Ram Badlands Circuit Finals, the championship event for PRCA rodeo competition in North Dakota and South Dakota.

The rodeo will begin at 6:30 pm on October 9-11, and at 1:30 pm on October 12. Ticket prices are $30 for gold seating and $20 for silver seating (for adults) and $10 for silver seating for children ages 4-12.
