McDonald’s Mighty Rough Stock Event
Always looking to facilitate a safe and responsible way for young rodeo contestants to enter into the sport of rodeo, in April 2017, the Quesnel Rodeo Club and McDonald’s partnered to host a Bull Riding, Saddle Bronc and Bare Back rodeo school for novice rough stock contestants. With the assistance of local seasoned rodeo contestants, this school was a great entry point for your cowboys and cowgirls to enter the sport of rodeo. The students who attended this school are eligible to compete for our rodeo’s McDonald’s Novice Rough Stock Champion Buckle. McDonalds.ca

I would like to extend a warm welcome and thanks for joining us at the 52nd Annual Quesnel Rodeo. As an all-volunteer, non-profit association, we recognize that it is only with the support of rodeo fans like you and our community minded business sponsors that, we are able to continue to grow and host great community events which reflect our community’s western traditions and history.

The Quesnel Rodeo represents a family tradition for many of us.  Many of our rodeo contestants have family members who are also competing and/or cheering from the grandstands Also, several of our club members have family who are rodeo contestants, or are also club members. We know that the sport of rodeo is thriving here in Quesnel. Each year many local cowboys and cowgirls qualify for the British Columbia Rodeo Associations Finals Championship Rodeo. Last year, four local cowboys and cowgirls were event champions.
We are proud that the Quesnel Rodeo, for many cowboys, cowgirls and rodeo fans is considered a must attend rodeo. With over $18,000.00 in added money and prizes, combined with rodeo stock from one of British Columbia’s top contractors, you can be assured that our 2017 Quesnel Rodeo will be wild and exciting.

We are pleased that Save-On-Foods is has again partnered with us with their steak dinner fundraiser for B.C. Children’s Hospital. To date, these dinners have raised over $20,000.00 for B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Our rodeo’s Alberta Premium Whiskey Barn Dance also promises to be a great event. We’ve been able to book Trick Ryder as our dance band. This dance follows Saturday’s rodeo and steak dinner, with door opening at 9:00PM.

Our Saturday rodeo performance is being used to create a greater awareness about sports related concussions. It is our hope that we can use this rodeo performance to draw attention to the importance of recognizing these injuries and allowing them to properly heal.

I would like to thank every member of the Quesnel Rodeo Club and their families, our many rodeo volunteers, our rodeo fans and friends, our community minded business sponsors and finally you for supporting this important community event. I’m confident that you, along with your family will have a great time as we honor our rich western heritage and keep our western traditions alive.

Ray Jasper, President Quesnel Rodeo Club
