New Rodeo Grandstands for 2015!

   In 2015 the Otero County Fairboard finished up a project that took 3 years to come to fruition in seeing the new grandstands in place.  We started in 2012 when we received a legislative appropriation for the new seating.  Over the next 3 years we had a few bumps to iron out but the bleachers are now in place.
   We want to thank Representative Yvette Herrell and Senator Bill Burt for sponsoring our project in Santa Fe and then helping with the follow up to get the funding released.  We also thank Governor Susana Martinez for approving the project to allow more of the citizens of Otero County attend events held in the Guy Warden arena.  We appreciate our local county commissioners for their support of the grandstand project as well as the County Manager.  Jack Wayte Construction helped out with the use of their forklift to get the old bleachers taken down.   Without each of you we would not have been able to complete the new grandstands.
   Our new seating is all aluminum and has a closed system so if you drop your drink, it won’t go all the way to the ground. With several areas for handicapped seating along the length everyone should be able to find a great spot to watch the events.   Sixty-three new reserved seats will be more comfortable than ever for those that would like reserved seating. 
   Be sure to come out to the ranch rodeo, Wednesday, August 12 and Thursday, August 13 at 7 pm each night or Friday, August 14 and Saturday August 15 at 8 pm each night to enjoy some rodeo action and check out our new bleachers.
