Kirchmann Media Group brings GoCoastGuard.com onboard as the newest sponsor
GoCoastGuard.com officially joins the 2018 Barnes Bull Riding Challenge tour as the newest sponsor. Kirchmann Media Group (KMG) and The U.S. Coast Guard will work jointly with Barnes PRCA Rodeo throughout the year. Bull Riding fans will definitely recognize The U.S. Coast Guard seal on the newly designed custom bullfighting jerseys at each of the tour stops.
The U.S. Coast Guard is a unique branch of the military responsible for an array of maritime duties, from ensuring safe and lawful commerce to performing rescue missions in severe conditions. Nearly 42,000 men and women are actively serving in the Coast Guard to defend America’s borders and protect the maritime environment.
"Having the GoCoastGuard.com as our newest sponsor is exciting. I have tremendous respect for the Coast Guard and the men and women wearing the uniform protecting our borders. KMG's Gretchen Kirchmann is diligent about aligning the right sponsors with our brand. The Coast Guard is a natural fit, as my dad was a military veteran," commented Marty Barnes, owner of Barnes PRCA Rodeo.
"It is an honor for us to work with Barnes PRCA Rodeo, as one that has been a part of the multi-missioned Armed Force, to see our nation's young people jump at the chance to prove their toughness in the rodeo arena, I am impressed. We also want to take the chance to show others the arena that the Coast Guard men and women operate in, the maritime environment presents challenges unlike any other, and we'd be proud to have these Americans 'cowboy/cowgirl up' for us," stated Chief Petty Officer Charles Scott, Recruiter in Charge of Coast Guard Recruiting Office Kansas City.
The second tour stop of the 2018 Barnes Bull Riding Challenge tour is this weekend Friday March 2 and Saturday March 3 in Ames, Iowa on the campus of Iowa State University. The event is at 7 p.m. in the Hansen Agriculture Student Learning Center at 2508 Mortensen Rd, Ames, Iowa.
