RODEO ANNOUNCER WAYNE WHITE
Creswell, Oregon, is home on the range to PRCA Rodeo Announcer Wayne White, his wife Evie, daughter Courtney, son-in-law Phil, and grandsons Dalton and Gaitlin. Involved in Rodeo his whole life, from bullriding to announcing, the Eugene Pro Rodeo is blessed to have one of the best. Made of chiseled granite, they come no tougher than Wayne White. We hope, like many before us have, that you'll go away after hearing Wayne announce our Rodeo proud to be an American.
Wayne believes "If you love what you do, and get paid for it, you never go to work a day in your life. He truly loves the world of rodeo, but more than that, underneath his Marine exterior, you'll know there's both passion and compassion with this in-the-saddle announcer.
Erick Schwindt, Professional Bull Fighter, Sponsored by Cosmos Creations
I grew up in a little town of Lyons, Oregon, in the mountains. I played sports since I was little. I didn't really grow up with any intent of getting into the rodeo business. My older brother started riding bulls when he was younger and it made me want to try it but it wasn't really for me, so I just hung out around rodeos till I was about 13 years old. I watched my buddy, Jesse Tennet, who had been fighting bulls for a while and it inspired me to try it one day and I loved it. I attended a Danny Newman school in Pasco, Washington.
I have two wonderful parents, my Mom, Kim Schwindt, and my Dad, Kevin Schwindt, and my older brother, Billy Schwindt, who have supported me from the start.
I have been fighting bulls for about 10 years now. In the fall of 2011 I decided I wanted to take my career to the next level. I attended a Rob Smets bullfighting school along with my fellow bullfighting partner, Logan Blasdell, in Coulee City, Washington, where Rob taught me the correct fundamentals of fighting bulls. From there, Rob invited my best friend Logan and me to go to Livingston Texas for a bullfighting protection match and freestyle competition. Rob has been the best mentor, friend and teacher a young bullfighter could ask for. Rob has also helped us take our careers to the next level. I earned my PRCA permit in September of 2011.
