Hello 2020 CSPRA Members…
As we begin to wind down our season, we want to say how very thankful we are for the five committees who hosted our 12 rodeos so that we could have a season AND a finals. Our 2020 finals will look slightly different from previous years, but the good news is… there will be a finals!

 
The basic overall layout will remain the same as in the past with some slight changes as follows:
-It will be three days rather than four, starting Friday Oct 16th until Sunday, Oct 18th.
-There will still be four performances (2 perfs on Sat), and an average, so paying out 5x however no added money.
-There will be a “Pizza Party” Awards Presentation in the arena Friday after the perf (pizza to be ordered with entries).
-The AGM has moved to Sunday morning.
-Our larger social gatherings will not happen this year in keeping with AHS guidelines (the banquet, fashion show, pancake breakfast, Calcutta, etc, will all return in 2021).
 
We hope everyone will enjoy the finals while respecting the guidelines of AHS. Further details including entry time and the order of events schedule will be posted in the days to come. If you have any questions please contact our finals committee: Marilyn Callaway or Craig Fitzpatrick.

(ORDER OF EVENTS:  LBR / MBAW40-64 / MBAW 65+ / LBAW / TD / RR / SW / TR


It's almost rodeo time! The last three rodeos of our 2020 season are this weekend in Nanton!
Friday to Sunday, Sept 18-20 (Fri @2pm, Sat @1pm, Sun @10am)
Fingers crossed that the weather holds off for one more weekend of rodeo fun (pretty please!).  Don't forget, if you didn't book a stall then you can not park up in the top field. Self penning or just coming in for day-to-day rodeo is in lower field only. Rodeo location is the Nanton Ag Grounds, just 1km EAST of corner of Hwy 2 & 533.

The CSPRA Annual General Meeting will be held

High River Senior Pro Rodeo

Coutts Grass Senior Pro Rodeo
Cardston Senior Pro Rodeo


Your hard work and dedication to the sport of rodeo
is recognized by all and greatly appreciated.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!

The breakaway world has lost one fierce competitor, Kari Lynn Dell passed away Aug 14th. Kari always brought her “A” game to each rodeo she entered. It didn’t matter if she was on her good rope horse or a colt, she was determined to get the calf caught and succeeded at it. Kari Lynn won Season Leader Awards, Canadian Championships, and roped at the Canadian Finals Breakaway Event at CFR last fall. Kari was passionate about breakaway roping and was always willing to offer her help. She initiated and sponsored the LBAW Rookie Award for the CSPRA. Kari Lynn will be missed by all.

RE:  PRE-PAYING RODEO FEES

When we first started to get our rodeo season underway we thought we better err on the side of caution and request that contestants pay their fees up front to the CSPRA Office. Now as things have somewhat relaxed and facilities are super prepared with the latest distancing protocals we are allowing all contestants the option to pay their fees at the rodeo office as was done in the past (with cheque or cash).

It is all about everyone's own comfort level so please feel free to choose which way works best for you.

2020 CSPRA RAFFLE TICKET FUNDRAISER

It has been decided that unfortunately with the shortened rodeo season
and the current social distancing requirements, it is just not possible
to properly run our annual Raffle Ticket Fundraiser this year.
(plus our biggest seller, Effie, is in lockdown)

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.
