Penn Valley Community Rodeo Association

The goal of Penn Valley Community Rodeo Association is to honor our Western heritage by promoting the sport of rodeo in Penn Valley. PVCRA is a nonprofit organization, founded in 2004, to perpetuate the tradition of the annual Penn Valley Rodeo and to benefit local schools and service organizations.

Membership fees are $10 for single members, and $20 for families (comprised of two adults and their dependents). If you have a question about family memberships please contact me. Hardship fee waivers may be granted on an individual basis after review by the Membership Committee. You do not need a horse to be a member.  For access to the grounds members receive the combination to the gate and have access to the arena and grounds in good weather. You may ride anytime except when the arena is closed for weather (safety reasons), and the month of May due to upcoming rodeo preparations. The parking lot is always available to ride as it drains well and there is a warm up arena towards Harper Lane. Dues are payable January 1, 2019.  The gate code will be changed on 3/1/2019.  I use email to notify members of any changes or issues, so an email address is necessary for you to be updated with any changes!

You are welcome to use any props you see.  There are only a few requirements.  Return whatever you use back where you found it.  If you break it contact me. If you open a gate, close it behind you.  If you close a gate, open the gate when you are done. Do not give out the gate combination to anyone.  All members receive the gate combo when they join. Giving out the combination will result in loss of membership and any fees paid. In addition, no commercial use of the grounds/training is allowed without a signed Rental Agreement and Certificate of Insurance listing the P.V.C.R.A. as additional insured. To rent the grounds for training purposes, or to verify a trainer is sanctioned, please contact John Favetti @ 530-913-1072

PVCRA meets on the second and fourth Tuesday each month, at 6:30 PM in the Cook House at the rodeo grounds. Meetings are open to all members; attendance is not required, however, meetings are a good way to get to know the Rodeo Board and have a voice in policy. Throughout the year, PVCRA produces numerous events that offer members the opportunity to volunteer, meet other members, and become well known.
