Who We Are

“The Double C Family Grows!!!”

We have grown since 2004…

Chad Willson, President

Chad Willson, 39 started Double C Productions with his brother Cody. Chad married the love of his life, Katie Hofius on Sept. 11th 2008. They have three kids Tyler (13), Kendall (4) and Asher (2). He has been rodeoing since he was 5 years old. He started rodeoing in the Arizona Junior Rodeo Association and rodeo in college for both Scottsdale Community College and Arizona State University. He graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Global Business and has rodeoed on the professional circuit for 4 years before getting hired as a firefighter for the Phoenix Fire Department. He loves to be able to provide a service for the community, either responding to the emergencies in the valley or producing professional run ropings that people can bring their family to and enjoy.

Skinner Watkins, Arena Director

Skinner Watkins, 50 is the heartbeat of Double C. He has been with Double C Productions since the beginning and we consider it like winning the lottery having Skinner as our gate man. He is the most sought after gate man in the southwest. You can always find Skinner in the arena taking great pride in the arena grounds and making sure every roper gets a fair start. Skinner’s enthusiasm towards his job is contiguous and is a joy to see. He is an invaluable part of the Double C operations. When he is not in the arena, you can find Skinner in Cottonword where he is the director/ teacher at the Cottonwood Oak Creek School District.
