It is with the utmost sadness that we make this announcement.  As many of you may already know, we lost our Committee Chairman, Rob Yates on March 5, 2014.   On that day Rob was doing one of the many things he loved, snowmobiling in the high country, when he was caught in an avalanche while trying to free another rider’s stuck snowmobile.  That was just the kind of guy Rob was.  He would help anyone in need.  As much as Rob loved playing in the snow, he loved the sport of rodeo even more.  This led him to join the executive board for the Ute Mountain Roundup Rodeo and eventually become the Committee Chairman.  Rob had a true passion for what he did and strived to make our little PRCA rodeo better and better each year.  From getting the very best contract personnel in the business to adding things like professional sound and a scoreboard, he was always looking for ways to make the Ute Mountain Roundup Rodeo the best entertainment experience possible for the fans, along with making it a rodeo that the competitors didn’t want to miss.  It is simply impossible to put into words how much he will be missed, not only by the rodeo but by the whole community.  We will do our very best to continue on and honor him by putting on a great rodeo this year and for many years to come.  We know he will be smiling down on us from the best seat in the house!                          CLICK HERE TO READ FULL OBITUARY
