Miss Rodeo

Amber Weber of Baggs, Miss PRCA Season Finale, was crowned Miss Rodeo Wyoming 2000 at the 1999 Wyoming State Fair. Weber won three of four categories including horsemanship, personality and speech. She is the 19-year-old daughter of Matt and Sherry Weber.

Weber is the first girl from Baggs to ever be chosen for this prestigious title. Since 1956, Carbon County has not had a girl chosen.

Weber recently attended Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs, Wyo. She hopes to continue her education by majoring in journalism and public speaking.

During her reign, Weber will serve as a goodwill ambassador and spokesperson for rodeo and the state of Wyoming.

A coronation will be held Oct. 30 in Baggs at the Little Snake River Events Center. Each year a fund-raiser is held in the queen’s hometown to help raise funds for her reign and to celebrate the tradition of Miss Rodeo Wyoming. The coronation will include a live and silent auction, dinner, entertainment and barn dance. Kelli Tysdal, Miss Rodeo Wyoming 1999 from Newcastle will assist with the coronation.

“It is such an honor to have this opportunity,” Weber said. “I’ve dreamed of this for a long time and I am proud to be able to promote high moral standards and old-fashioned values that rodeo and agriculture carry and that are so much a part of my life.”
