Your confirmation number will be stored on your profile.

CALL IN ENTRIES

Call ins are one night only, two Tuesdays before the rodeo date from 6:00 to 10:00 pm. If you need to make changes to your online entry, you must do it on call in night.

No late entries are ever accepted.

Happy Canadian Ag Day 🌾

A tip of the hat to all of our hard working farmers, ranchers and agricultural producers who work hand in hand to help us live this life that we love.

Thank a farmer, rancher and producer today and everyday as without them we would not have the food on our tables or the animals to compete in our sport with. For many of us the western, ranching and farming lifestyles come together as one - we are so thankful for how agriculture brings us together!
