TO THE CARDSTON RODEO COMMITTEE!

Tim Bevans and Connie LeMoine and their Crew did a fantastic job
especially taking on three rodeos. And as if running three rodeos
weren't enough, they held a barrel jackpot, a ladies breakaway
jackpot and a team roping jackpot at the same time... whew!

The weather couldn't have been better, same for the hospitality
and all the fun both inside and outside of the arena.


GREAT JOB, SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!

to the
Wetaskiwin Rodeo Committee!!!

By all accounts, and the many fun-filled and sometimes
mud-filled photos on facebook, these new rodeos were
a great success. We hear that even some of the town
dignitaries were out and spoke of the hope that the
CSPRA would come back to rodeo again in the future.

Congratulations to you all!

"YOUNG AT HEART" Match Calf Roping
JW Campbell (Canada) vs Bud Clemons (USA)

Age is just a number for 2 senior rodeo cowboys

                                                       - kpax.com


Whoever said rodeo is a young man's game has clearly never seen the National
Senior pros do their thing. That was proven on Tuesday in Darby where a pair of
Octogenarians went head-to-head in a calf-roping contest for the ages.

ALSO NEW IN 2017
The CSPRA can no longer take payout cheques or
other third party cheques to pay for rodeo fees.


Should any rodeo committee wish to cash these cheques,
it will totally be the responsibility of that committee.
Please check with the individual Rodeo Secretaries prior
to their rodeo should you require this service.



____________________________________________

PLEASE NOTE - NEW IN 2017

All Around Cowboy and All Around Cowgirl saddle winners
will be determined by the total of 2017 season points
and will not include the Finals points.


___________________________________
 

 

  CSPRA LADIES...
  Just a reminder that we will
  be including the LBR68+ age
  group at our Finals this year!!!

    You will need to qualify the same way as in other
    events; having competed in five rodeos on Canadian
    soil and be in the top ten in the points standings.

 


ALSO... If you do go down to the Montana Rodeos we will count
you in the LBR68+ for points up here, but in order for points to
be given out there must be a contest of at least two 68+ members
or more, competing at any rodeo to obtain any points.


So call your fellow 68+ers and make sure
you have a competitor going too!

Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Association  --  Rodeo Forever!

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.


* The CSPRA accepts credit cards
(Visa & Mastercard only)
a $10.00 service charge
will be added on all transactions.

* Ideas, questions, concerns, or any other general information
is welcomed by the Board. Contact an event director to
discuss what is going on in the CSPRA and watch for our
page in the monthly Rodeo Connection magazine.
