After the ceremony, Jodie Dunbar reflected briefly on her experience as Miss Rodeo Pincher Creek. "I went to lots of charity events this year," she said. "Pincher Creek is a beautiful place, with beautiful people in it, and I had a great time.  I went to a couple of rodeos.  It's amazing to see the countryside, and to meet all the people in it, and I had a tremendous experience as a rodeo queen."

"Next I hope to continue my work at Farming Smarter.  It's a research station in Lethbridge Alberta, and hopefully become a certified crop agronomist." She has one year of study left at the University of Lethbridge.

"She's going to do an awesome job.  She's a great lady."

The soft spoken new Miss Rodeo Pincher Creek was beaming with delight.  "I'm very very proud."  Of her last year as Little Miss Pincher Creek Miss Stokke said  "Meeting the important people I did... it was just an amazing time, it was awesome."
