100 YEARS OF RODEO

2018 Canadian Professional Rodeo Association Schedule JULY

The Homestretch Well, we’re heading into the homestretch of our 2018 rodeo season. We’ve enjoyed this first year of having Finning Canada on board as the title sponsor for our Pro Tour Rodeos and look forward to the Finning Pro Tour Finals set for Sep 2nd at the IPE & Stampede in Armstrong, B.C. We’re also closing in on the 5th Annual Grass Roots Final, presented once again by Ranchman’s Cookhouse and Dancehall of Calgary. Tickets to the Grass Roots Final, slated for Sep 27–28 at the Nutrien Western Events Centre, Stampede Park, Calgary will be on sale through Ticketmaster, starting Aug 1. Overall, the CPRA has seen an increase in the number of PRCA and WPRA members this year, which has translated into higher entries at our rodeos and special events. We’re hearing positive feedback from fans, contestants, sponsors and committees about the live streaming of our Finning Pro Tour rodeos as a result of our partnership with FloSports. If you cannot get to our tour events, you can sign up to watch them online at FloRodeo.com. The CPRA, along with partners, Northlands, Finning Canada and Flo Rodeo, have been able to provide both promotional and financial support to rodeo committees, enabling our rodeos to rise to a higher level of production and fan enjoyment. We continue to be so proud of our volunteers who are the lifeblood of the sport. Thank you for the countless hours and effort you put forth to make rodeo the great sport it is. Plans are moving along for CFR ’ 45, which marks the first year that our Finals will be held at Westerner Park in Red Deer, Alta. For a schedule of performance times, events and activities in and around CFR 2018, check out CFRRedDeer.com. Safe travels to everyone. See you down the road.

The FloSports-CPRA affiliation will also enable the CPRA to allocate funds back to rodeo committees, which will help promote growth at the community level as well. All in all, we see partnering with FloRodeo as a home run for the sport of professional rodeo at every level.” To access live and on-demand coverage of the Finning Pro Tour Events, Finning Pro Tour Finals, Grass Roots Final, and Canadian Finals Rodeo, users can sign up to become a monthly or annual PRO subscriber on FloRodeo.com.

WHY STOP AT 150? What initially began as a Canada 150 project, Great Canadian Rodeo Moments has grown in cultural importance with an enthusiastic audience and contributors. So why, reasoned Barb Poulsen, should we stop at 150? For more of these snapshots of rodeo history, visit the home page of rodeocanada.com

Great Canadian Rodeo Moment #3

Jim Gladstone The year was 1977. Jim Gladstone became the first Canadian to win a timed event world title when he emerged as the World Champion Calf Roper at the (then) sudden-death NFR, pocketing $7,166 in go-round money and winning the average as well for a $5,000 bonus. His total time of 119.7 seconds for 10 calves was a record at the time, eclipsing the old mark by five and a half seconds, not bad considering he was nursing a broken finger throughout the final. Gladstone, who was born on the Blood Reserve north of Cardston, Alta., went on to a successful career as a lawyer. He was the son of Canadian Rodeo Hall of Fame inductee, Fred Gladstone, and grandson of Canadian Senator, James Gladstone. Jim, who passed away in 2015, remains the only Canadian to have won the TieDown Roping World Championship. — B.P.

SOCIAL MEDIA PRO JOINS CPRA The Canadian Professional Rodeo Association is pleased to announce that Jody Seeley is joining the organization as a social media specialist. A former radio host with over two decades in the media industry, Seeley is also a professional emcee and social media practitioner from LimeLite Audio & Media. Add to that an excellent rapport with people and a passion for community and rodeo, and Seeley is a very positive addition to the CPRA. CPRA General Manager, Jeff Robson, notes, “We believe that adding Jody to the team gives us a greater presence and adds to our fan experience. In conjunction with (CPRA) Communications team member, Barb Poulsen, Jody will bring more ideas and creativity to the social media content.” Robson goes on to say, “The CPRA is determined to be a leader in all things rodeo and this will bring us to another level.” Poulsen adds, “Jody brings tremendous enthusiasm, a strong skill set and great ideas to the table. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to join forces with her in an effort to better promote the CPRA.” Seeley is already actively working in her new role. Look for some new marketing twists and interesting content on CPRA social media. “I’m really excited to combine my two passions of rodeo and social media together with the CPRA,” says Seeley. “I am thrilled to have this opportunity and to be part of the vision in moving this organization and its fan experience forward.” — CPRA cowboycountrymagazine.com

OKOTOKS PRO RODEO MOVES TO MILLARVILLE The Okotoks Pro Rodeo committee announced that their professional rodeo is moving to a new home. The 27th Annual Okotoks Pro Rodeo, held Aug 24–26, is moving to the Millarville Racing & Ag Society grounds. Located 15 minutes west of Okotoks on Highway 549, the history-laden grounds, famous for its Canada Day horse races, offers a 2,500-seat stadium, ample parking, festival camping facilities and the space to add other events as the traditional Okotoks event grows. “The location has changed, but we will still feature the same exciting non-stop action you have grown to love,” says Renne Reidy, president of the Okotoks Pro Rodeo. The society and event will “continue to promote Okotoks and the surrounding community from our new venue.” For over a century, the non-profit Millarville Racing & Agricultural Society has been a catalyst in preserving the area’s agricultural heritage. With over 600 members and over 400 volunteers, the Society gives back to the community through its preservation of three large historical events, the Millarville Races, the Fair and the Heritage Rodeo, plus the summer Millarville Farmers’ Market and the Millarville Christmas Market in November. Now the Society’s reach has embraced Okotoks. For more, visit okotoksprorodeo.com.

AND ACADEMIA. In May, Lamb became the first at his university to earn a Master of Science Degree in Applied Psychology. His thesis topic? Concussions in rodeo. It’s a topic he knows firsthand, as he’s learning to cope with the ongoing impact of concussions on his own pro rodeo career. Lamb rose to the top of a class in a talented group of young Canadian rodeo stars, as he swept the Canadian Novice Bareback titles for Canada, the Calgary Stampede and the Stampede’s Novice Tour, all in 2013. Then he earned the 2014 PRCA Resistol Rookie of the Year award while studying at Tarleton University in Stephenville, Texas. He made his first CFR in the open division in 2016, but a concussion suffered while riding in Williams Lake, B.C., interrupted his riding plans last year. “I was in rough shape, but I was sitting pretty good in the standings, so I tried to push it a little and actually got on again (a month later) in Bonnyville,” said Lamb. “I didn’t get hurt, but my symptoms just got really bad again, so that’s when I made the decision to take the rest of the 2017 season off.” During that time, Lamb focused on his Masters. “It was my way of turning a bad situation into a good one,” Lamb explained, about his thesis topic. “There’s not a lot of research out there, and mine was the first of cowboycountrymagazine.com

ROAD TO THE CFR

Jake Burwash of Nanton, Alta., on Vold Rodeo’s 2012 Saddle Bronc of the Year, R3 Pedro at Stavely Indoor Pro Rodeo this spring

JAKE BURWASH BRONC RIDING 101 By TIM ELLIS

I

T’S AN OBVIOUS QUESTION. WHY WOULD THE SON OF ONE OF THE MOST DECORATED BAREBACK RIDERS IN

CANADIAN RODEO HISTORY CHOOSE THE SADDLE BRONC EVENT?

48

“I’ve been asked that a lot,” confirms Jake Burwash, whose father, Robin, won four Canadian Bareback Championships and was the Reserve World Champion twice. “I wanted to try riding bareback, but Dad said, ‘let’s try something that’s not going to jerk you around.’ I wasn’t very big in high school; I had no muscle mass or weight to me. I rode bareback in my senior year, but I cracked my wrist and it never felt right in the riggin’ again. So, I got hooked on this little saddle and rein thing.” That choice is starting to pay dividends. As of mid-May, Burwash was leading the Pro Rodeo Canada novice saddle bronc standings with over $2,000 in earnings. At the same time, he was competing in the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyo., for the third consecutive year. “I won the saddle bronc in the Grand Canyon Region (of the National

Intercollegiate Rodeo Association),” reveals Burwash, who finished his third year with Cochise College in Douglas, Ariz., and will transfer to Tarleton State in Texas for the 2018–19 school year. “I kind of always thought I wanted to go to school and rodeo. It’s made a mark in my riding for the better. It makes a big difference when you’re doing it every day and it’s always on your mind. That’s what we do — go to school and ride broncs or rope calves. And the Arizona weather doesn’t hurt either.” With the college season out of the way, the focus for Burwash is now on qualifying for the Canadian Finals Rodeo. “I wrote my finals two weeks early and busted my butt to get through school,” offers the 20-year-old Business Administration student. “I came up here for Drayton Valley — which is the earliest I’ve started the season in Canada. I set up my classes so I can stay until after Cranbrook. I might have to fly back for one or two rodeos, depending on the standings. But we’ll make that decision in August.” In June, Burwash had perhaps the biggest win of his novice career. He captured the title at the Wildwood Bronc Bustin’ with a pair of rides in the mid-70s. “That was such a sweet deal,” says a stillbeaming Burwash of the victory. “You get to see the big guys there and get to see where we want to be in the future.” “I’ve got one more year of novice left, but the plan is to go into the open next season. There’s a great group of guys coming up, and we grew up hearing the stories. Now, we’re starting to make our own stories.” Burwash is one of the lucky ones to have someone back at home wanting to hear those stories. “Dad wants to hear what happened on the weekend,” laughs Burwash. “What went wrong and what went terrible!” c
