Eddie Watrin, shown here riding Black Nitre at a 1930s Calgary Stampede, was an early legendary cowboy who won $40 at his first championship in the 1920 Blackie Stampede. He won day money after riding the great bucking horse Midnight at the 1925 Edmonton Rodeo.

The feisty Watrin rode broncs until 1945, then retired to the Iola district and enjoyed an active life visiting district rodeos well into the 1970s.
