June 26, 2020
Dear Chief Joseph Days Ticket Holder:
You have probably heard that the Chief Joseph Days Rodeo Board made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Chief Joseph Days due to state and federal guidelines regarding Covid-19. It was an agonizing choice, debated over and over starting in March, and finally made with very heavy hearts at our June 8 board meeting. By then, it was clear the risks in trying to hold the rodeo and attempt to keep everyone safe was simply too great. We appreciate your support and understanding. Here’s the good news: We plan to celebrate the 75th Annual Chief Joseph Days in 2021, and come back stronger than ever. The three super court girls have all agreed to come back, and serve Chief Joseph Days as an honorary 75th Court. Because we appreciate your support of Chief Joseph Days, we wanted to offer you two options regarding your tickets:
Option 1: Request your payment to be fully refunded.

Please bring your original tickets (photocopies are not accepted) to the Rodeo office during regular business hours, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, 9:00 am -4:00 pm, or mail the original tickets to Chief Joseph Days Rodeo, Inc., P.O. Box 13, Joseph, Oregon 97846.
- Option 2: Donate your payment to Chief Joseph Days as a tax deduction.
- If you have purchased tickets online via ETix you should receive an automatic refund shortly.
- If you are a permanent ticket holder you will receive a letter in the mail shortly for refund and/or donation opportunities.
Should you choose Option 2, your payment will go towards regular, ongoing costs of holding our annual rodeo, such as insurance, taxes, electricity, rent of the office space, etc. Your payment will also be fully tax-deductible, as we are a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and you did not receive any service or product for your donation.
If we do not hear from you by July 25, 2020, we will assume you have decided to donate your payment. We appreciate your support of Chief Joseph Days and look forward to seeing you at the 75th Chief Joseph Days Rodeo next summer. Best regards, Terry Jones
Chief Joseph Days President
and the Chief Joseph Days Board of Directors
