2018 Canadian Professional Rodeo Association Schedule MAY

President’s Message June has arrived, and we’re well into rodeo season. Entries are strong with fans cheering on contestants from both sides of the 49th parallel. CFR 45 plans are also moving forward. Westerner Park staff has concluded All-In Ticket sales and are moving forward with ticket sales for the public. The CFR committee has met a number of times and continues to work on details for an exciting 2018 Canadian Finals Rodeo in Red Deer. The CPRA is happy to welcome Finning Canada as the Canadian Pro Rodeo Tour title sponsor for 2018. The world’s largest Caterpillar dealer, Finning has been in operation for 80 years. Based across Western Canada, Finning sells, rents and provides parts and services for equipment and engines to customers in various industries, including agriculture, mining, construction, petroleum, forestry and a wide range of power systems applications. Among Canadian rodeos celebrating milestone anniversaries this year is the just completed Falkland Stampede. The interior British Columbia rodeo marked 100 years on the May long weekend. Thank you to those CPRA members who attended the CPRA Annual General Meeting. Held March 24 in Airdrie, Alta., the meeting provided attendees with an opportunity to hear about CPRA finances (which are in very positive territory), new directions and updates from within the organization. My condolences to the family and friends of Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame cowboy, Ted Vayro, who passed away in late April. A competitor, CPRA director, stock contractor and CFR livestock superintendent, Ted contributed much to the world of rodeo. On a happier note, congratulations to this year’s Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame inductees: contestants Fred Duke and Wayde Joyal; builder, Doug (Shakey) Russell; livestock, Kesler Rodeo’s saddle bronc horse Rodeo News and legends, Blake Butterfield and Lyle Smith.

Bareback rider Yvan Jayne, 35, who qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 2015-16, announced his retirement after breaking his pelvis. The injury occurred during a ride on United Pro Rodeo’s Happy Trails on April 27 at a rodeo in Jourdanton, Texas. In an interview Jayne stated that he was having “issues” with his pelvis, which broke during the ride. The injury also tore some arteries, resulting in emergency surgery to repair internal bleeding. Born and raised in Marseille, France, (he moved to Texas as a teenager) the highlight of Jayne’s rodeo career came in 2015 when he made history as the first European-born competitor at the Wrangler NFR. In 2016, Jayne made it to the Showdown Sunday round at the Calgary Stampede. Outside of rodeo, Jayne has been building luxury treehouses, and has plans to build a bed-and-breakfast. Jayne and his wife, Kristin, live in Texas. They have a daughter, Sienna, 5, and are expecting a baby boy in August. “It has become more important to me to be able to do things with my kids than it is for me to ride bareback horses.” —TM

DIANE SKOCDOPOLE “SUPER” SONIC By DIANNE FINSTAD

O

NLY A YEAR AGO DIANE SKOCDOPOLE WAS PUTTING LEGS TO A LITTLE DREAM OF HERS

— TAKING HER BARREL RACING HOBBY TO THE BIG STAGE. THIS RANCHER AND MOTHER HAD A MARE NAMED SONIC (JG HECTORS PIZZAZZ) WITH SOME POTENTIAL, IF SHE COULD JUST KEEP HER HUSBAND DALE FROM TAKING HER

Fast-forward and one dream season later, Sonic has earned her stripes as a bona fide world-class barrel racing sensation. She helped take Skocdopole all the way to the Canadian Finals Rodeo, sweeping up the Rookie of the Year and Permit Awards along the way. Sonic was a two-year-old when she came to the Skocdopole Ranch in the heart of cowboy country west of Big Valley, Alta. Dale, a CFR tie-down and team roper, had done a deal with a Nebraska trainer for a rope horse. Diane asked if they had any young prospects, and Sonic surfaced. “Might as well throw her in the trailer,” Dale had stated, and Diane had a project on her hands. Despite marrying into a rodeo family, Skocdopole was new to the game. Her arena experience had been in showing Quarter horses instead. But when her good show horse got sick, a nearby friend urged her to borrow one of her husband’s rope horses and come to a local barrel racing jackpot. “I did and had fun, and never looked back,” smiled Skocdopole, who was soon hooked. “There’s so many rodeo people in this area, it’s easy.” 54

A good old campaigner named Mohawk helped her learn the ropes of barrel racing, and her admittedly ‘super competitive’ streak kicked in, so she was soon competing at amateur rodeos. Meantime, she was also working a lot on Sonic, whose cow sense seemed to develop before her speed. “She was so cowy, and wanted to stop, but didn’t have much run. We sent her for some rope horse training and got a call one day, telling us this horse could run! When we got her home, she took back to the barrels like nobody’s business and ran away with things from there.” By 2017, the ranch had a sensible eight-year-old horse, useful for moving cows, team roping in either header or heeler positions or even roping calves. But when Diane cracked out with her at the Camrose Spring Rodeo and clocked fast enough to win, the scale tipped towards Sonic’s barrel racing career. After some pondering, Skocdopole took the plunge, buying her pro card right away. Then at Canadian Cowboy Country June/July 2018

the Daines Ranch, they were the fastest in a large and tough field of racers. “I was thinking this was probably an okay decision to take a chance and come to the pro rodeos. I think my horse can fit in here.” Consistent placings, plus good paydays at both Jasper and Pincher Creek, not to mention a second-place finish at the rich K-Days Rodeo in Edmonton, finally got Skocdopole thinking about a trip to the CFR. Then doing well at the Grass Roots Finals in Calgary put the icing on the cake for her to claim the rookie title for Canada. “It’s a huge deal — at my age, you don’t get to be rookie at very many things anymore,” she laughs. Then in Edmonton, after picking up her very first trophy buckles for the CPRA Rookie and Permit honours, she added a third buckle as the first go-round winner. “Having been there with Dale, I knew what to expect at Edmonton. I was incredibly relaxed, actually, before my run. Just go do our thing, our comfort zone.” Skocdopole finished her inaugural pro season fifth in Canada, with earnings of $40,446, picking up $17,825 of that at the CFR. cowboycountrymagazine.com

“I’m not quite sure how I’m going to follow that up!” smiles Skocdopole. “It was definitely over and above what I could’ve ever thought was possible. Sonic never seemed to weaken. The more you go, the happier she was to have a job to do, nothing seemed to bother her. She takes it in stride and away she goes. For her to step into this stage and be able to hold her own is unbelievably amazing. She surprises me all the time.” But don’t be thinking such success has turned Sonic into a prima donna. She still enjoys her ranch work time. “For her, I know if I start to have a few issues barrel racing with her, we just go to heading a few steers on her. It brings her right back for me, gets her body correct. It is the secret to make her the horse she is, I truly believe that.” Skocdopole plans a similar rodeo trail this year, although she did take out her WPRA card, ‘just in case’. The family’s shared rodeo passion means there will usually be two rigs heading out of the yard, likely in opposite directions, for much of the year. Son Coy is 12 now and quit hockey this winter so he could rope more. He’ll be busy with the Wrangler Junior rodeos and plans to rope with his Dad on the amateur scene. Whatever this rodeo season brings, Diane Skocdopole is sure of one thing — the attitude of gratitude she wants to bring to the arena each and every run. “I think that’s so important, just to remember the joy and why you’re doing it. Do it because you love it, and I want to stick with that mentality. It’s the nature of our event — your horse is your everything, so just be grateful for every time you get to run, and never over expect anything out of them.” c

DEVIN WIGEMYR FAMILY TRADITION By TIM ELLIS

T

HERE REALLY WAS NEVER ANY DOUBT. IN HIS MIND, DEVIN WIGEMYR HAD ALWAYS

KNOWN HE’D BE A TEAM ROPER. AND GIVEN HIS PEDIGREE, THERE SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN A DOUBT HE WOULD END UP COMPETING AMONG THE BEST IN THE SPORT.

“I’ve been brainwashed to do this since I was a little kid,” suggests the 23-year-old heeler from Brooks, Alta. “I played hockey for a few years but watching him, I became pretty excited to do this.” 56

“Him” is dad, Dwight, a decorated team roper who twice has been presented with a Canadian Professional Rodeo Association champion heeler’s buckle at the end of the week-long Canadian Finals Rodeo. His first title came in 2002 when Devin was seven years old — his second came six years later in 2008. “I’ve been going to the CFR since I was a wee little kid roping people’s feet,” begins the younger Wigemyr, who qualified for his first Finals in 2016. “He gave me lots of advice and words of wisdom before I roped in Edmonton.” “I hate to rope against that guy anytime. He still whups on me in the arena. I’d rather rope with him instead of against him, but I picked the wrong end. But it’s cool.” Wigemyr followed up his CFR debut by qualifying for the Finals a second straight season in 2017, an historical year for his group with even money paid out to both header and heeler. “We don’t know what struggles they went through back then,” offers the 2014 Canadian Cowboys Association champion. “They ate some crow to get to where we are now.” He continues. “My dad, Murray Linthicum, Rocky Dallyn, Travis Gallais, Ronald Schmidt — they paved the way for us. I remember my dad had some really

good Finals and won a lot. But now, I can place fourth and almost win as much.” In fact, when Dwight and Daryn Knapp won the 2002 team roping championship, they were paid a combined $11,048 for the week. Last November at Rexall Place, each roper was handed $11,213 to win a round. The elder Wigemyr won $35,729 in his career at the CFR in eight appearances from 2000–2009. In his two trips to the Finals, Devin has already pocketed $22,800. But while the money has changed, getting advice from the veterans has not. “Rollie has roped with me since I was 13,” says Wigemyr of current team roping partner, Roland McFadden, who’s qualified for the CFR eight times and won the 2015 Canadian heading championship. “He was giving me chances before anyone else was. It goes a lot further than just roping in the arena.” It’s entirely possible the 32-year-old McFadden is actually passing along some of the same advice Devin has already been given. “I roped with his dad a lot,” confirms McFadden. “I was looking for a partner, and I didn’t want to pass on the opportunity to rope with Devin. It’s paid off, it’s been really good.” c
