On behalf of the rodeo committee of 2008, we would like to thank all of the sponsors and fans that supported the 2008 rodeo. Due to your support, we were able to give a little more than $4,000 back to different charity groups in the area. As stated by the Truckee Donner Horsemans Association, (TDHA) to the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, (PRCA) that due to economic reasons, the TDHA will not host a rodeo in 2009. However, the rodeo committee of 2008 does not want to let the rodeo die in Truckee. Therefore, we have taken it upon ourselves to ensure there will be a rodeo in 2009. The dates will be July 25 at 5 p.m. and July 26 at 2 p.m. at the McIver Arena.The new name for the rodeo is Truckee Championship PRO Rodeo. The rodeo is for Truckee and everyone who supports rodeo. We are asking the community for your continued support and we look forward to another successful rodeo in 2009. would like to correspond, or apply to volunteer for your rodeo, please visit our website at or write to P.O.

The North Tahoe Event Center has partnered with North Tahoe Arts and the Art in Public Places program to provide rotating public art exhibits. The Center hopes to provide a more inviting atmosphere through the showing of artwork.The current exhibit, Wild Encounters Photography, by photographers William Cooper and JoAnn Lippert is a sampling of photography which focuses on sights, colors and textures of world cultures and primitive tribes including the wild animals, beliefs, flowers and people. Working with Art in Public Places allows the North Tahoe Event Center to provide its visitors and residents of North Tahoe a new cultural experience, says Kathy Long, Parks and Facilities Manager. This new partnership also provides local artists a new venue to show off their artwork and connect with a segment of the community that may not have previously been aware of their work. The public is invited to visit the Center during normal business hours to view the art on display at no charge. Exhibits will be rotated approximately every three months.
