We are THE NEWSPAPER for your advertising dollar!

Ropers Sports News (RSN) has been in the arena since 1968 when rodeo announcer Bob Feist saw a need to inform fellow team ropers of dates and locations of upcoming events. After 48 years, the “roper’s bible” has grown from a four-page issue to a monthly publication with an average of 60 pages. Our subscribers are kept up-to-date on results and standings in all rodeo events, with a strong emphasis on team roping and barrel racing.

  • YOUR AD will be seen by over 20,000 readers in 48 states, Canada and Australia.
