Calgary, AB: On April 12th and 13th, 2013 a variety of Canada’s top rodeo athletes are scheduled to compete at an event not like any other around. $30,000 in prize money is to be paid out each night to the top contestants in a winner take all format against the top stock from near and far.
2012 Canadian Professional Rodeo Association Cowboy of the Year and two time and reining Canadian Bull Riding Champion Scott Schiffner of nearby Strathmore is one of the top athletes to compete. The likes of Four Time Canadian Bareback Riding Champion Dusty LaValley, Canadian All Around Champions Jeremy Harden and Steven Turner (four times) along with his brother, 2003 Canadian Champion Bull Rider Jody Turner are all taking a chance on winning big.
