Behind the Scenes at the Circuit Finals

Contract Personnel for the Montana PRCA Pro Rodeo Circuit Finals

The 39th Annual Montana PRCA Pro Rodeo Circuit Finals will be coming to the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, Montana on January 12, 13, and 14, 2018. Performances are Friday and Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. and the final performance Sunday at 2:00 p.m. A quality show depends greatly upon the talent of the person behind the microphone. For the tenth year, Professional Rodeo Announcer, Will Rasmussen and for his second year, Jeff Maren will both be commentating all the action and its relevance to the fans. Knowledge of the stats on the riders and stock is a crucial part of the announcer’s job, which can mean hours of behind the scenes homework.

Behind the scenes, but a very significant part of the event are the rodeo contract personnel which include Bullfighters – Kaleb Barrett and JD Harrell; Pickup Men – Andy Bolich and KC Verhelst; Secretary – Judy Kesler; and Timers – Berva Dawn Kesler and Joyce Kesler; Music – Kurtis Kesler.

Professional Rodeo Clown, JJ Harrison will be this year’s barrelman and the person in charge of entertaining the crowd. This is a show you won’t want to miss.

Stock contractors include Brookman Rodeo, J Bar J, Kesler Championship Rodeo, Kesler Rodeo, New West Rodeo Productions, Sankey Pro Rodeo & Robinson Bulls. Some of Montana’s best stock will be at the Circuit Finals straight from the NFR in Vegas.
