HOTEL INFORMATION
There is currently a severe shortage of hotel rooms in Odessa and the surrounding area. We tried, but were unable to reserve a "room block" in any hotel. They simply don't have enough rooms available to block. The Odessa Conventions and Visitors Bureau http://odessacvb.com has a list of 31 local hotels. Please reserve your room early. You can cancel a room if it turns out you don't need it (be sure to verify the hotel's policy) but if you wait, you may NOT be able to find a room.

That competition is considered to be the first rodeo which evolved into rodeo as we know it today. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE...
