About Us

Our Purpose

Founded in 1972, Rodeo Boosters is the sole organization devoted to the promotion and preservation of the rodeo program at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, California. Rodeo Boosters maintains constant communication with Cal Poly’s President and the College of Ag, lobbying within the state school system as well as providing necessary funds to secure the future of the rodeo program. When the program was in danger of being shut down, it was Rodeo Boosters that stepped in. Our all-volunteer Board of Directors includes Rodeo Coach, Ben Londo along with student and parent representatives, ensuring decisions made are in the best interests of the program. When the facility was slated to be bulldozed, Rodeo Boosters was responsible for rebuilding and refurbishing the stalls.

Rodeo Boosters focuses its attention on four areas: hosting fundraising events to raise money for scholarships and the rodeo program, facility maintenance & improvement, recruiting direct donors to the program, and maintaining relationships with Cal Poly and the College of Ag


Karl Giacomini Memorial Scholarship 

A member of the Cal Poly Rodeo team in the 1990s Karl is remembered as being an All-Around great friend and hardworker. Always ready to lend a hand around the rodeo grounds he spent countless hours mending pens and working the arena. This scholarship is awarded to the student who exemplifies Karl's hard working attitude inside and outside of the arena.
