The rodeo banquet serves as the primary fundraising event hosted by the rodeo team each year. The funds generated from this banquet play a pivotal role in sustaining the rodeo program. The proceeds contribute to student scholarships, facilitating essential practice opportunities, offsetting travel expenses, covering hotel accommodations, and supporting the Montana Western college rodeo in the fall. The attendance and support at this banquet directly impacts the success and sustainability of the rodeo program.

UMW Rodeo is also excited to announce that they will be paying tribute to the enduring legacy of Benny and Rooster Reynolds, two of Dillon’s most iconic rodeo heroes. Their significant impact has played a crucial role in shaping Dillon’s rich rodeo heritage. 

“We are very grateful for the ongoing support that the Dillon and surrounding communities consistently extend to our student rodeo athletes and the program each year,” said coach JT Robbins. “We look forward to another successful rodeo banquet!”
