Barrel Bash bitten by economy

Last weekend's barrel races at Ponoka's Calnash Ag Event Centre had decent numbers for entries.

Nothing has been immune to the effects of the low price for a barrel of oil, including the popular sport of barrel racing.

The seventh annual Barrel Bash event took place over the weekend at the Calnash Ag Event Centre, although it was toned down considerably from last year.

Organizer Lisa Nault Gallais explained the economic hit to many businesses and individuals that were involved previously had to scale back or not participate as a sponsor this year. That left the event to offer up day jackpot money and a sweater for the slot race, instead of the much larger payouts of last year.

The event was able to run races in the peewee, youth and open classes on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with the payouts based upon the number of entries for each event.

The results were: Friday youth 1D first place Alaysha Kushneryk, second Emma Funk; 2D first Ashley Coyne; 3D first Dakota Slywka, second Bobbi Henderson, third Alaysha Kushneryk; open 1D first Reagan Tebb, second Ashley Chapman, third Kerri Bougeroile, fourth Kerli Cowie; 2D first Dee Walker, second Shannon Dunne, third Francine Scozzafava, fourth Tea Hataley; 3D first Pamela Jacob, second Eva Hamm, third Kirk Gallais, fourth Lindy Fuchs.
