Included in the array of sponsor visibility activities, is logo exposure on competitor t-shirts, banner displays during sponsored events, trade show booth space, as well as exclusive marketing and signage opportunities, and high visibility seating at luncheons, banquets and select social events, by invitation.

2021 PJ Rodeo

PJ Rodeo competitors participate in scored events, with many located at the hotel, in view from the Hospitality Decks and other locations at the JW Marriot Starr Pass Resort and Spa.  Everyone, including our FAG's (Former Action Guys) enjoys seeing the current PJ Warrior Force, demonstrating today's skills, procedures and gear.
