Nickel Scramble for Kids

Sponsored by Shell Lake State Bank & CCF Bank


A great way for kids to have fun at the Spooner Rodeo.  Participate in the Nickel Scramble and win Rodeo Bucks!

At 6:15 PM, prior to the Rodeo Performance on Friday and Saturday evenings, kids attending the Rodeo are invited to participate in the Nickel Scramble.  Those participating must be at least 2 years old and no older than 8 years old.

Kids will be invited into the arena and at the sound of the “horn” will scramble for and keep all the nickels they find.  $300.00 in nickels will be spread in the area each night for this event; kids will keep all the nickels they find. In addition, there will be specially marked nickels that when found can be exchanged for $10.00 in Rodeo Bucks.   Rodeo Bucks must be spent on the Rodeo grounds and can be redeemed at any souvenir vendor or for food and refreshments. No alcoholic beverages may be purchased with these “bucks”. No change will be returned on purchases. 

Parents may accompany younger children into the arena but cannot pick up the nickels for their children.

Pushing, hitting, tripping or taking other children’s nickels will not be tolerated.  Violators will be expelled from the event and forfeit all their nickels.
