2015 Pincher Creek Pro Rodeo

The Canadian Professional Rodeo Association (CPRA) rolled into Pincher Creek last weekend for the  well attended annual Pincher Creek Pro Rodeo.



The three day weekend, host by the Pincher Creek and District Agricultural Society, included the annual Pincher Creek parade (click here for that story), a Gymkhana for the younger cowgirls and cowboys, local Ranch Rodeo girls with returning Pincher Creek Rodeo Queen (and Miss Rodeo Canada contestant) Chelsea Stokke, and Liberty Horse Entertainers Niki Flundra and her son Ridge. Flundra and son participated in the honouring of the Canadian Flag and our veterans, represented by Pincher Creek's Lt. Commander Pierre Comeau (retired). Comeau was a military lawyer serving for the Judge Advocate General's Office of the Canadian Forces.  Now he's a successful local lawyer and businessman.

A concession was hosted by McMan Agency volunteers.  McMan administers the local food bank and spearheads other local community initiatives.  Another concession was hosted by local 4-H groups.  Pincher Creek Emergency Services were on-scene on standby again.  Kids competed in Mutton Busting and Calf Scramble events for prizes.  Of course, all eyes were on the main attraction, the rodeo itself.  Championship Sunday saw some amazing performances, despite a downpour that drenched the second to last event, tie-down roping.  As the day ended the sun came out one more time.

The rodeo events began with a Team Roping Jackpot at the Horseshoe Pavilion on Thursday evening.  We hope to publish the results from that shortly, watch this space.

The Gymkhana was held Friday morning, and in the evening the CPRA show kicked into full throttle with Tough Enough to Wear Pink as the theme.  Saturday began with the Rotary breakfast, then the parade, then more pro rodeo.  Saturday evening's Bacchanalia/Cabaret featured the Chevelles, a Lethbridge group that includes an aliased local legend.
