 PHIL THUE (1964-2015)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Phil Thue, on August 25, while surrounded by loved ones. He succumbed to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on August 4, 2015. Phil is lovingly remembered by his wife Renita and their children, his siblings and his parents. He was relatively new to team roping but took to it with his whole heart and with such a great, fun, positive attitude. He was a pleasure to be with in the arena of rodeo and life.

A funeral service was held at Edge School for Athletes (33055 Twp Rd 250, Calgary, AB) on Saturday, August 29, 2015. In Lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made directly to STARS or the Foothills Medical Intensive Care Unit. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family via the website:



Mr. Larry Grant Nelson of Magrath, beloved husband of Allyn Nelson, passed away on August 11, 2015 at the age of 63 years.  Larry was a humble man of his word who accomplished many great things.  He was an avid fisherman, hunter and cowboy but his greatest love of all was his family.  

Larry is survived by his son Trevor (Kristy) Nelson and their children, Grant and Gage; and daughter, Aleesa Nelson; sisters Tanya (Brian) Jesson; Wanda (Merlin) Gerber; Shannon (Dale) Hewins; Arlene Pyrah and brother George (Susan) Nelson.   He is also survived by his mother in law, Marion Greenway (special friend Art Stratulat)  and brother in laws Bart (Linda) Greenway, and Gray (Debbie) Greenway; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families. Larry was predeceased by his parents Joseph & Shirley; father in law Al Greenway and brother in laws Tom Greenway and Ryan Greenway.  

A Celebration of his life was held on Monday, August 17, 2015.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in honor of Larry to the Jack Addy Cancer Centre (1A129, 960–19 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 1W5) or to the Raymond Auxiliary to Health Care Facilities (Box 599, Raymond, AB T0K 2S0).

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.
