Heaven has gained a special cowboy.
CSPRA Team Roping Director and competitor Don Kraft, lost his courageous battle with cancer.
Don competed in team roping with Bill Akins and Mike Tucker, and ribbon roping with his life partner, Marilyn Callaway.
Don and Marilyn were the 2012 CSPRA Ribbon Roping 50-59 Champions. Our thoughts and
prayers go out to the Kraft and Callaway families. A memorial is being planned for mid to late July.

If an event is "distressed", meaning that it has less than eight (8) entries, contestants from higher age groups can "enter down" into that event and compete for money only (no points). You will need to specify this at time of entries. Should there be more than needed "distressed" entries, the amount to fill the event will be drawn from all who requested to "enter down".
Congrats to the Mayerthorpe
Senior Pro Rodeo Committee!
They won the rodeo approval draw of $2200 to use at their rodeo this year and it just so happens that this is the next stop on the CSPRA 2015 rodeo schedule.
Head up there on June 14th and check them out.

Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Association
Greetings from the world of Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo. For those folks over 40 who still enjoy rodeo, please think about joining our organization. We offer the opportunity to rodeo in Canada or throughout North America with competitive, skilled contestants.
The Canadian Rodeo season starts in early April with rodeos scattered across Western Canada throughout the spring, summer and early fall. The 2015 Finals will be a Sudden Death Finals held October 15, 16, 17, & 18 at the Claresholm Agriplex, Claresholm, Alberta.
Contestants compete in such events as Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling, Tie Down Roping, Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding, Team Roping and Ribbon Roping. Included in the opportunity to enjoy Senior Pro Rodeo is the choice to head south of the border to rodeos hosted by the National Senior Pro Rodeo Association.
New since the 2014 Season!
The CSPRA now has the option of hosting a full CSPRA rodeo, a timed event only rodeo or a roughstock only rodeo for first-time rodeos. A timed event only rodeo will consist of tie down roping, breakaway roping, ladies barrel racing, ribbon roping, team roping and steer wrestling. All rodeos have to follow the CSPRA rule book to be sanctioned. Please contact your event director with any questions. Be advised that the NSPRA has moved to a “region” format since the 2014 season. Included in the Canadian region will be ALL CSPRA rodeos as well as those rodeos occurring in Montana.

on all transactions.
* Concerns, ideas, questions or any general information is welcomed by the board. Please contact your event director to find out the lastest information. Director phone numbers are posted and appear in the monthly paper.
