"WESTERN COLLECTIBLE MARKET" on Saturday, Aug 6th, 12-4pm
featuring western collectibles, art, antiques and jewellery. Our objective of the Market is to bring more spectators to our annual
Senior Pro Rodeo. A lot of people enjoy a sale such as this and hopefully it will atract buyers looking for that special treasure as well
as to watch some rodeo and socialize.
If you have any WESTERN items that you would like to sell please bring them to our Market. Bring as many as you would like and if
you have several items we would recommend bringing a table that they could be displayed on. There will be a $20 charge per table
which will go to the Nanton Rodeo Committee, and of course you can always share a table with a friend! There will be no commission
charges, you will receive 100% of the money if your items sell.
This is NOT A GARAGE OR RUMMAGE SALE so price your items accordingly. We are looking to sell and display GOOD NICE ITEMS
-- such as tack, art, photos, jewellery, antiques... anything older and part of the western lifestyle.
We hope to make this Nanton`s own little Sante Fe-like Western Market that will grow each year.
For more information contact Colleen McPeak at 403-646-5959.

The CSPRA Board of Directors is pleased to announce the
“Wrangler Canadian Classic Rodeo Tour”
This new series will be comprised of eight regular season rodeos that will be identified by the
tour logo seen next to rodeo dates in our schedule on our website. Each participating rodeo
committee will have one day designated that is part of the Wrangler Tour (see below).
With the creation of this Wrangler Canadian Classic Tour, we are hopeful that it will draw
more contestants out which in turn will help all the rodeo committees plus add another
positive and fun aspect to rodeoing within the CSPRA.
Points will be awarded based on the current CSPRA point system plus an additional
five-attendance-points bonus per rodeo. The high point winners of each event in each age
category will be determined at the Brooks Rodeo in September and win a
tour jacket donated and sponsored by Wrangler.
Are you looking for a partner for your rodeo event?
Check out our new area where contestants who are in need of a partner, either
for a certain rodeo or for the entire season, can be listed. With the start of the new
season quickly approaching, people are already trying to fill up their rodeo entries.

The Canadian rodeo season starts in April with rodeos scattered across Western Canada throughout the spring, summer and fall. The Canadian Finals are a sudden death finals held in October at the Claresholm Agriplex, Claresholm, Alberta.
Contestants compete in such events as Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling, Tie Down Roping, Men's and Ladies Breakaway, 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.
The CSPRA now offers the options of hosting a "full" CSPRA rodeo, a "timed event only" rodeo or a "roughstock only" rodeo. 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 the committee representative or your event director with any questions. Be advised that the NSPRA has moved to a “region” format since the 2014 season and included in the Canadian region will be ALL CSPRA rodeos as well as those rodeos occurring in Montana.
