Harness your inner urban cowboy and jump in the saddle for the ASIS 2017 Mechanical Bull Riding Competition at the Opening Night Celebration at Gilley's Dallas!

The individual competition runs throughout the evening with prizes for:

  • ​​​​Longest ride
  • Most memorable dismount
  • Best bucking flair

Rides are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Proceeds from the competition support the ASIS Foundation (suggested contribution $20). All riders receive a commemorative gift.​

​Cowboy wisdom:
​Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction.
Good thing ours is mechanical!​​

Ideas / Inspiration

The following Facebook post from ASIS Board member Chuck Andrews, CPP, is an example of how to create some friendly competition with other ASIS member groups. When issuing any challenges, remember, individuals will have the opportunity to ride the mechanical bull most of the night, but during the Chapter & Council Challenge only the top five fundraising groups will have the opportunity to nominate a participant for the ride-off.
