Pro Rodeo Canada
SEPTEMBER 1, 2015
For immediate release
With only a half-dozen rodeos left on the Pro Rodeo Canada schedule, every cheque becomes increasingly important, no matter how many zeroes may be attached to it. Barrel racer, Rene Leclercq couldn't agree more.
"It's very important for me to be winning right now because I'm right on the bubble," offered the 21-year-old, who is in her third year on the pro rodeo trail. "Getting to the CFR has been a life long dream since I was a little girl. If I got there, it would mean the world to me."
2015 kicks off the second year of the PRO RODEO CANADA SERIES.
Last year, dubbed the Grass Roots Rodeo Tour, the Series is back - bigger and better than ever - with a new moniker.
The PRO RODEO CANADA SERIES encompasses all professional rodeos aside from the Wrangler Pro Tour events, and will culminate in an exciting high energy PRO RODEO CANADA SERIES FINAL October 2 - 3 at the Agrium Western Event Centre at Stampede Park in Calgary, AB.
Contestant earnings from the finals will count toward the 2015 CFR standings.
A recent meeting was held to begin working on a Pro Rodeo Canada grounds standard. In addition to setting out ground guidelines, the standard will include training for our rodeo committee grounds staff on how to meet our ground standards for a variety of conditions - indoor, outdoor, rain, sharing arena with chuck wagons etc. We will also provide training for Pro Rodeo Canada representatives to work with our committees to ensure we have safe ground for all events.
Thank you to the following people for volunteering their time to serve on our new grounds standard committee:
Dan Eddy - Pro Rodeo Canada GM
Murry Milan - Pro Rodeo Canada President (representing rough stock and timed events)
Pascal Del Guercio - rodeo committee representative (representing committees)
Suzanne De Paoli - rodeo members representative
