Steamboat Springs, Colo. (AP) - The Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo series won't trim its 10-week, 20-performance schedule despite a cut in city funding for 2009. But it will offer a discounted season pass to encourage attendance.

The city, which is the main source of revenue for the rodeo series, cut its contribution to $30,000 this year, down from $45,000 in each of the previous two years.

Plus, board members say sponsorships are getting harder to find because of the slump in the economy.

They say the rodeo's financial reserves are healthy though.

The rodeo is offering a $35 season pass good for entry to 18 of the 20 rodeos this season to boost attendance. Otherwise, individual tickets are $15 apiece for adults.
