World Champion Daryl W. Mills, along with Terry McLeod, and Ken Wagner, to host the “Daryl Mills PBR Invitational” in Fort St. John, BC, in April.

Pink Mountain native, 1994 World Champion, 1990 & 1992  Canadian Champion Bull Rider, 2006 Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame Inductee as well as Professional Bull Riders Founder, stockholder and Ring of Honour recipient Daryl Mills has stepped up to be a big part of bringing the PBR to his home area of Northeast BC.

“We’re going to put this all right into the community.” Mills said over the phone this morning when asked about the inception of the event. “Our main focus is charity.”

Two of those organizations are the Fort St. John High School Rodeo Club and the Fort St. John Hospital. One coming from the rodeo and bull riding community that will be supported is the Edmonton Rodeo Cowboy’s Benevolent Fund.

April 20th and 21st are when the $30,000 added PBR Canada Touring Pro Event will take place. Looking at last year’s schedule, this may very well be the largest event in 2013 next to the PBR Canadian Finals. With the new points system change being implemented, it will likely mean many of the PBR’s most high profile athletes may be in attendance. Thirty riders will each compete both nights with the top 12 coming back for the Championship Round action on Sunday Night. A grudge match will likely be implemented as the feature on Saturday’s performance.

Terry McLeod and Ken Wagner, both large community supporters approached Mills for his involvement with the event. McLeod is also the driving force behind this year’s inaugural Fort St. John Pro Rodeo to be sanctioned by the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association. June 14th to 16th are it’s tentative dates.

Stay tuned for more information that will become available here in the coming months leading into both events. If you have any other questions please send an email to

    How do I find out more about this event? Such as where it will be and how much. Also, could one buy tickets before Xmas so they could be used as Xmas gifts?

    Thank you
