The Reeves Team has been a long-time supporter of the Gilbert Days events so we were saddened to read about possible financial concerns in a recent East Valley Tribune story. It appears the economic troubles that has taken a toll on the auto industry is also effecting the Gilbert Days event.
San Tan Ford, who has been the $25,000 title sponsor for the event over the last couple of years has pulled out of the same roll this year. The sponsorship is not the only concern. There is also a concern with the actual grounds the event is held on.
Gilbert Days Rodeo Park has been seeing some disturbing ground shifts lately. There are concerns about the future of the site which is built on an old landfill site. One proposal would move the Gilbert Rodeo Park from its current Val Vista and Ray location to Queen Creek and Greenfield.
Gilbert Days has long been a staple of the community and this is not the first challenges the event has faced. Gilbert has always found a way to ban together and work through problems and we are sure they will continue to do so. We look forward to being a part of this year’s Gilbert Days and many more to come.
