It's 2018! Where did the time go? I guess all the phone calls and schedule questions mean it's that time of year again, RODEO TIME -- hard to believe! The off-season has been spent doing a lot of preparing. We attended several fair conventions and other networking events to prepare for this upcoming season.
Last year was such a great season for the CPRA, we had great response to the new website so we are looking forward to continuing its growth. The season ended with quite the race for the bullriding championship, with two great competitors competing, and Mason Oermesher winning by less than $200 over Brett Olmsted. In the barrel racing we saw a new champion in Kendra Kerr, it was exciting to see her grow over the past few years into the exceptional barrel racer that she is.
This year we have added some new and exciting events, as well as some old favorites. We will be continuing our relationship with the Women's Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) in the Barrel Racing event and are excited to continue our new relationships with the associations (MRA, URA, IRA, IRCA, and MRCA).
We will be updating the site regularly with new events, event results and standings, as well as any news -- so check back often to see what is going on in this great, growing association.
For past members and any contestants interested in joining you can print off a membership application from the site through clicking on the membership application tab and downloading the application, submit to the address listed along with your $50 and you will receive your card in the mail.
We are looking forward to another amazing season of watching this great association grow as we continue to spread the message of Christ and show people how truely great the sport of rodeo is.
