The 21st edition of annual Byemoor Bull-a-rama attracted many rodeo lovers from near and far on Friday, April 17, with the championship title of the competition going to Ponoka cowboy Tyler Pankewitz.
Many cowboys from central Alberta and from Australia took part in the competition with only seven of them making the qualifying rides in the first round/long go.
In order to complete the eighth slot for the second round, the cowboy with highest point short of a qualifying ride was included in the roster for the short go.
Stetler’s Miles Pennington, despite scoring the highest point of the long go with 84.5, falied to complete his short go ride in eight seconds and was bucked off.
Tyler Pankewitz of Ponoka, who became the first qualifying rider of the long go with 81.5 points went on to win the short go with 87 points and won a leather jacket as his championship award.
