Camrose, AB: Thanks to secretary Brenda Vold for sending these in a text message this afternoon from the CPRA Bull Riding each morning as part of the Big Valley Jamboree at 10:00am.
Jesse Torkelson earned some much needed money won towards his bid for the 40th Anniversary of the CFR today. As per usual, the event was won out of Thursday’s Bull Riding. For some reason bull riders don’t seem to do as well when they have to ride at 10:00 in the morning. Especially at an event that’s as much fun as BVJ.
Tork picked up over $5,400 in winnings there in Camrose. With $7,500 won coming in, this should move him into the top 15 a ride today in Strathmore would have helped out too. Second place Scott Schiffner was bucked off in Strathmore today but picked up a pretty $4,400 or so at Bulls for Breakfast. That’s real handy for Scott as it could move him right into third place in the Canadian Standings come Tuesday once the week is finished up.
Yesterday morning, hats were passed around collecting donations for injured bull rider, Aaron Roy. Those hats collected over $11,000. Hats off to al of you who donated this morning. That’s huge.
Below are the results thus far. Stay tuned for more as the weekend proceeds. In addition, the results from High Prairie are now up at RodeoCanada.com along with in progress results form Strathmore. Their finals starts tomorrow morning at 11:00am.
