2020 NFR Updates: Gold Buckle Gala and PRCA National Convention
Steve Kenyon and Janie Johnson talk about the latest developments in 2020 NFR events, including the Gold Buckle Gala and the PRCA National Convention.
The Gold Buckle Gala for the ProRodeo Hall of Fame will be held on November 30 at Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest honky tonk, in the Fort Worth Stockyards while the PRCA National Convention will take place December 1 — with Mayor Betsy Price serving as the keynote speaker.
The mayor will address convention attendees at the Fort Worth Convention Center on Tuesday, December 1, at 10:45 a.m (CT).
“We are honored that Mayor Price will keynote our convention,” said PRCA CEO George Taylor told ProRodeo.com. “This is a woman who has successfully led through extraordinary change. She is helping to safely revive Fort Worth and was the leader in bringing the NFR to Texas, this year. We couldn’t have a better keynote speaker on the docket.”
The theme for this year’s convention is Challenge of Change, and Mayor Price will address attendees on the challenges that she has witnessed in her career and the positive change she is bringing to her community.
“Change has been at the center of 2020 and I’m so impressed with the way ProRodeo is navigating the challenges that we have all faced throughout this difficult year,” Price said. “I credit much of that to the cowboy spirit that permeates rodeo. We know that the cowboy is unique; strong, patient, hardworking and dedicated. You don’t get through what we’ve all been through without strength, patience, faith, hard work and dedication.”
