For Immediate Release:

2021 Best Buck in the Bay

When we closed the books on the 2019 Best Buck in the Bay, we were eagerly looking forward to the 2020 production. Little did anyone expect what was to change in 2020 and long term challenges into 2021.

Since the founding in GSGRA 1984, and the Bay Area Chapter following soon after, we have been driven to support our community. Whether by promoting the sport of rodeo within the Gay community or using our excess revenues to support other non-profit organizations in the whole community, we look forward each year to meeting new friends, and enjoying the comradery with old.

With our first rodeo in 1998 the Best Buck in the Bay relies on community support to come to fruition – whether its financial support or the many personal hours as a volunteer. We usually spend a lot of time in person in our community to raise funds and promote our event and that is still a challenge with a short window coming up for the rodeo. Given these current circumstances, the GSGRA-BAC Board of Directors believe the right decision to be able to continue supporting the community is to reschedule the Best Buck in the Bay to September 09-11, 2022.

Thank you to all our past and present Members, Volunteers, Officials, Spectators, Sponsors, Contractors and loving Families for your support and standing by us through thick and thin. We could not have had all these years of success without you and will be looking forward to your support of the 2022 Best Buck in the Bay! Watch for us at community events where we can help support through this challenging time. It takes a village and we are so proud to be part of it.

See you all at the rodeo in 2022!

Yours in the Rodeo,
