Condolences go out to Jackie Keller and family on the passing of her husband Cliff Keller. Amoung his many rodeo accomplishments, Cliff was the 2016 Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Champion Men's Breakaway Roper and also the Reserve Champion Tie Down Roper. We will miss Cliff's warm, positive, competitive spirit.  (SEE OBIT)

CSPRA GOLD CARDS

Hey members, as you turn 75 years of age or are already 75+,
and have 10 years or more of membership with the CSPRA, you can

now apply for a paid-in-full "Lifetime Membership Gold Card"!



--------------------------------


Good Day... so results from the barrel racing poll showed that many of you don’t care how the barrels are run off, but a majority did like the idea of everyone running in one section.  So as a Board we decided we would just leave it in the age groups as is. BUT... raking will be decided each rodeo day, based on conditions, AND... will be done after actual runs on ground NOT names in the program. Draw is always up at the office and medical and turnouts are there to see when you run.  ALSO... we will always run 40s, 50s, 60s, 68+s, without confusion when anyone runs we just leave so committee and spectators can follow programs.  

Thanks, just keeping everyone updated and “in the loop”.  Remember to always check the CSPRA website at www.canadaseniorrodeo.com for official information on the Association. ie: rodeo details, rules, etc.

Team Roping Added Money

I got a call the other day from Les Deschamps. He had an idea on how to bring more money to the team roping event. What he proposed was to have all the team ropers pay an extra $100.00 at the beginning of the year and spread it evenly as added money in all 3 categories to all the approved rodeos.

So as the Team Roping Director’s, Perry and I would like to get some feedback by either text or email. We need it in writing so please no phone calls.

The CSPRA had a great day...
Livingstone/Macleod MLA, Roger Reid, on behalf of the Government of Alberta's
Community Initiatives Program (CIP), presented our group with a grant cheque
for $35,000 to assist us with the hosting of our 2019 Rodeo Finals!

CULTURE, MULTICULTURALISM AND STATUS OF WOMEN
 
"Your organization is to be commended on its hard work in enriching communities throughout Alberta"



THANK YOU SO MUCH...

to MLA Roger Reid for supporting and appreciating what we have to offer
to the many different communities in and around Alberta, and Minister,
Leela Sharon Aheer, Government of Alberta, Culture, Multiculturalism 
and Status of Women, for all their incredible grant programs which
 help to make organizations such as ours possible year after year.

Wondering about Rodeo Payouts???
...A rodeo committee has four days to get their completed rodeo
package into the CSPRA office; we then verify all paperwork and
either do an etransfer or mail out a cheque with your winnings.


**If you wish to switch from cheques to etransfers (which is much quicker and more
reliable than Canada Post) please let me know your email address to send to.


--------------------------------

(new and updated rules are listed below icon)

PLEASE NOTE:
For people who are having their payouts done via e-transfer, or
anyone else just wanting to know payout amounts and/or where
your winnings came from, look under the "Draws+Results" button and
click on the "Money Bag" in the chart for each particular rodeo.


---------------------------------------


The CSPRA can no longer take past payout cheques or
other third party cheques to pay for rodeo fees. The banks
have no way of proving your signature on the back.


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

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.
