Cow Plop Bingo is just one of the extra events held during the 61st annual Red Ryder Roundup Rodeo being held at the rodeo grounds on July 2, 3 and 4.
The Kiwanis Club of Pagosa Springs is hosting this daily contest. In this rodeo game, spectators purchase a square on a bingo card which represents the square footage in the rodeo arena. Steers are set loose in the arena and the first “plop” is located via GPS measurement relative to the bingo square. The winner receives a large cash prize generated from the sales of the bingo squares.
Bingo squares can be purchased from any Kiwanis Club member and club members will have a variety of posts in town to advertise the activity. Squares can also be purchased at the rodeo main entrance before each rodeo.
Tickets to the rodeo are available at Goodman’s Department Store and at the gate prior to the event. The cost is $10 per adult and $6 for children 12 and under. A limited number of box seats are available and can be purchased by calling 264-5000.
