Pendleton Round-Up named best large outdoor rodeo

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) -- The Pendleton Round-Up has been named the best large outdoor rodeo by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association for the second year in a row.

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - The Pendleton Round-Up has been named the best large outdoor rodeo by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association for the second year in a row.

The East Oregonian reports Friday that to lasso the title two years running, the Round-Up made some changes this year.

Those included installing a gourmet pop up restaurant called the 1910 Room and changing where the families of contestants are seated.

Round-Up publicity director Randy Thomas says rodeo committees from as far as away as Salinas, California, and Deadwood, South Dakota have visited to pick up tips.

The Pendleton Round-Up began in 1910 and attracts thousands of rodeo fans to Pendleton each summer for days.
