Cowboys prepare for New Years night of rodeo

Bull riders and saddlebronc riders are preparing for a night of rodeo on New Year’s Eve during the Bulls, Broncs and Bling action.

Bull riders and saddlebronc riders are preparing for a night of full action rodeo on New Year’s Eve at the Calnash Ag Event Centre during the Bulls, Broncs and Bling action.

For the second year in a row, the New Year’s event is to be hosted at the centre, which promises to bring quality stock and riders, says Joyce Vold, event co-ordinator.

A total of 24 bulls and 24 bucking broncos will make up the first portion of the event with the top six riders in each to make it to the short-go. Vold says Nanson Vold and Dwayne Robinson will be supplying the bulls while Rod Hay will supply the horses ensuring an action packed evening, which is also sanctioned by Bull Riders Canada.

“We’ve got an amazing group of people on the production side of it,” said Vold.

There is also $3,000 added money to both events for the contestants.

Besides the stock will also be a jumbo screen to give everyone a close up view of the action. After the rodeo will be musical entertainment from Jamie Woodfin during the cabaret.

“It’s an action-packed evening,” says Vold.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with the rodeo to start at 7 p.m. Vold expects the entertainment to start around 10 p.m. to lead into the New Year.
