Explanation of Fees for a Cancelled Rodeo:

As per the 2016 cancelled rodeo at Nanton, it was established that there still needs to be
office/admin fees charged so that the Rodeo Committee and the CSPRA Office, who both
have put in a lot of work prior to the rodeo(s), can help to partially pay for costs incurred.

$13.80 was charged to each entered contestant
($5.00/Committee office fee, $8.50/CSPRA office/admin fee, $.30/GST)

When the rodeo package is returned to the CSPRA office, all contestant receipts will be reviewed to  
verify these additional charges were correct, and if needed refunds will be made at that time.

                                                                         the CSPRA and Mother Nature, thank you for your understanding! 



All CSPRA Rodeos have a "Cowboy Attire" dress code
anytime while in the arena, competing or not:

Collared, cuffed, long-sleeve shirt, western cowboy hat and boots.

(with exception being a ribbon runner who may wear other footwear and no cowboy hat)Thank You


And for anyone wondering about Rodeo Payouts...

...the 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.


It was an Effie Simpson weekend at the High River Rodeos!

The CSPRA presented her with a "Legacy Award" for all her years of dedication
to the Association and serving on the Board for 20 years - 1998 to 2018 - plus
being our raffle ticket selling queen!


Past President Lynn Turcato and Director Marilyn Callaway present Effie with her "Legacy" plaque.

Thank you to "The Fixer Ltd" (Lee Phillips & Trish Ferguson) for making and donating the
incredible wood piece. Please check out their facebook page for more of their creations.



      ARE $95.00 plus GST ($99.75)

CSPRA Roughstock starts at age 35!!!
(two age groups: 35-49 and 50+)

To qualify for the CSPRA Finals, roughstock riders must ride at
five rodeos or however many rodeos if less than the five.
ie: looks like we will have 4 rodeos with roughstock in 2019
so the number needed to qualify for finals will be four.
