A lot of work goes into running these... 3 days, 2 locations, tracking scores, hundreds of competitors, and then double
checking to get it all right, please don't forget to thank these amazing members for their kindness and efforts.
And congratulations to the winners...
Jerri Duce -- Ladies Hi Point Winner

for donating them. Dave made them and you can see more of his work at www.elliottbitandspur.com.
Thanks to Sandy, Doug Mantler and Laurel Anderson for helping me win them!"

Attention all CSPRA Members:
As per CSPRA RULEBOOK: You must in an event including declared age category
as a CSPRA member at five CSPRA rodeos in Canada to qualify to compete in the event
at the CSPRA Finals and/or to qualify for the CSPRA Season Leader title and award.
Therefore, any cancelled rodeo can not be counted as a qualifying rodeo.
With the cancellation of Nanton Sunday Rodeo, the
CSPRA Office will be refunding all Sunday competitors their
event fees ($5ea), entry fees ($50ea) and finals fee ($2.63)
to be distributed at the same time as the payout cheques.
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.

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.
