The ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy announced July 2 that the Class of 2020 Induction Ceremony scheduled for Aug. 1 in Colorado Springs, Colo., and associated activities will be cancelled due to the extreme restrictions placed on events in Colorado from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The press release read as follows:
We are so sorry to have to make this decision as this was not the outcome we were hoping for.
Unfortunately, we would be unable to have the kind of numbers of attendees to truly honor the class as well as have the events be successful and worthy of the honor it is meant to be. Without the ability to have the entire families and many friends of the Inductees attend, we have made the decision to cancel and move the events to next year.
“We did not enter into this very difficult decision lightly,” said Kent Sturman, Director of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy. “None of us wanted to make this decision but it is best under the circumstances.”
The ProRodeo Hall of Fame is going to work diligently to plan a robust and successful event for this amazing class to be held in 2021. Watch for more details as decisions are made throughout the year.
