The series showcases three of the most exciting and dangerous rodeo disciplines: Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding and Bull Riding. In Bareback Riding, the cowboy must keep one hand in the rigging and one hand in the air. In Saddle Bronc, the cowboy must keep both feet in the stirrups, one hand on the bronc reign and one hand in the air. In Bull Riding, the cowboy must have one hand in the bull rope and one hand in the air.
For each of the three disciplines, half of the score comes from the cowboy’s ability to ride well while the other half comes from the bucking performance of the animal. The most successful cowboys anticipate and follow the movements of the animal to perfection.
Since Professional Roughstock Series’ foundation in 2001, it has become one of the fastest growing rodeo sport series. Everett is just one stop on their nationwide tour that leads up to the World Finals in November. Competition between riders is fiercer than it has ever been which is sure to create an unforgettable show.

On Saturday, January 11, Comcast Arena and the Comcast Community Ice Rink will host a free public skate and vaccination clinic to serve uninsured and low-income adults in the Snohomish County area. Volunteers and staff from the Snohomish Health District, Mukilteo-South Everett Rotary, and Walgreens will provide adults with flu shots and whooping cough vaccinations from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
Guests of the event will skate on the Comcast Arena’s main ice rink where the Everett Silvertips play their home games. Skating is from 2:30 to 5:30 pm. Guests are asked to enter through the Comcast Community Ice Rink entrance (Broadway).
Flu season has begun in Snohomish County. Getting a flu shot every year is the best way to prevent infection. Vaccination is also the best protection against whooping cough. Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, is no longer at epidemic levels in Snohomish County, but cases of it are still being confirmed and it can be deadly to babies. It is especially important that all pregnant women and people who are around newborns – including teens, grandparents, and childcare workers – get the booster shot to protect the infant.
Download vaccine information sheets at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/index.html
Visit www.flu.gov for more information about flu, where to get vaccinated and for statewide updates.
Vaccinations will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
