Rounding Up the Urban Rodeos (Again)
|Rio Rodeo is the only one of four urban rodeos operating under the city's existing guidelines.|
Last we looked, there were but one urban rodeo in operation: Rio Rodeo at 704 S. Walton Walker Blvd., which looks awful fancy. But today's briefing and photo album lists three additional urban rodeos: Temporado de Jaripeos Rodeo (which has since suspended operations due to "heat and economy"), Silverado Rodeo (denied a permit because it's in a residential area) and 2534 Royal Lane, so's you know where it is (or was, as it too has been denied a permit due to "safety concerns"). Turns out, the Office of Special Events has guidelines for round-ups; the council's just adding further criteria, including min distance from businesses and homes. Which means I've got some bull ropes, chaps, bullpin releases, bareback riggings and horses I need to get ride of, real pronto-like.
