PHILLIPSBURG -- Tickets went on sale today for the first Pro Bull Riders event in Phillipsburg.

The PBR, which is well known for its high energy, dynamic bull riding events, will be June 2 at the rodeo grounds.

About 40 bull riders are expected to compete for $10,000 in prize money.

Anticipation for the event is growing.

"People are excited for the PBR to come to town," said Rod Innes, rodeo chairman. "We've put together a good show, from a good bull contractor to clowns, because we know fans appreciate not only good rodeo action but good entertainment."

Jimmy Crowthers of New Frontier Rodeo, Gypsum, will bring bucking bulls to the event, and rodeo clown and barrelman Justin Rumford, Ponca City, Okla., will entertain.

Announcer is Troy Goodridge, Fort Scott, and bullfighters are Mark Peters and Danny Munsell. A dance featuring Mark Nebel will be held after the PBR June 2 at the rodeo grounds.

Tickets for the PBR are $18 for general admission and $20 for reserved seating. They are available at Heritage Insurance in Phillipsburg and can be purchased via phone at (785) 543-2448.

The PBR is held in conjunction with the Riverless Festival, which runs June 2 and 3 and features an arts and crafts fair/flea market, music on the square, 2-mile run/walk, men's softball tournament, state sanctioned kids pedal pushers event, open horseshow, games, and vendors.

"Phillipsburg fans know good bull riding when they see it," Innes said. "This PBR will be as good as the bull riding they see on TV."

For more information, call (785) 543-2321.
