In the mid 1960’s a group of parents were trying to organize fundraisers to build a lighted football stadium for the El Capitan High School. Parents, teachers and school officials included Arthur Sattler, Donald Foster, M.R. Murry Jr., Russell Savage, John Barrons, Reg Kuhner, Tom La Madrid Sr., Lee Bowen, John Burns, Roy Crane, Anna Curley, Paul Clay, Tom and Jody Hostetler, Charles Perkins along with many others whose names have been lost, or forgotten, yet their legacy lives on.
The parents of students attending, or about to enter the high school, wanted to make sure that the school provided the same level of services as the other schools within the growing district and, with the district building another high school at that time, money was just not available to provide sports facilities for the students of El Capitan.
The totally volunteer group, organized themselves under the title of “El Capitan Stadium Association” and pledged to be an ALL VOLUNTEER group in the community of Lakeside.
In December of 1969, Mrs. Marion Carlson approached the organization and gifted 8 acres of vacant land, the current site of the Lakeside Rodeo facility, to the group for fundraising for Youth.
Through the years, although members (volunteers) left and new members (volunteers) joined, the group remained focused and completed the building of the football field, lighting, bleachers and concession stands for the High School.
Along with the school improvements, the group started working on building the Lakeside Rodeo Arena as a permanent fundraising fixture for the youth in the community.
During that time, the Stadium Association began the annual leasing of a portion of the rodeo land to the Grossmont Union School District to allow El Capitan High School to build and maintain an Agricultural Department and in 2012 Grossmont Union School District gained ownership of that area to remodel and create an outstanding Agricultural education center.
