The El Capitan Stadium Association is a nonprofit organization, run strictly by volunteers. Membership consists of people willing to donate their time, resources and special talents to the organization and community. Money is raised from the annual Lakeside Rodeo, concerts, catering dinners and ground rentals. The grounds are used for the Miss Rodeo Lakeside Pageant, Lakeside Chili Cook off, weddings, BMX bicycle races, team penning and barrel racing exhibitions, fairs and other community events. The El Capitan Stadium Association members always have the welfare of the Lakeside community’s children at heart. With that in mind, the organization continues to raise money for Lakeside schools’ curriculum, sports groups, reading programs, school facilities, and for other local nonprofit organizations that need financial support. On the average, the ECSA donates more then $100,000 a year to the community.
The annual Lakeside Rodeo held every April is the largest fundraiser for the Association. The Lakeside Rodeo has gained national exposure over the last 44 years, from a small hometown event to being named the International Professional Rodeo Association Rodeo (IPRA) of the year FOUR times! In January 1999, the Lakeside rodeo changed from the IPRA to the PRCA.
We thank you for your support.
