Stettler’s Armando Davila in control once again as he ended up setting the qualifying round at 85.5 at the Byemoor Bull-a-Rama on Friday evening

St. Albert’s Kyle Primeau takes 2017 Byemoor Bull-a-Rama

Primeau won the event with a score of 86, followed closely by Calgary’s Cody Floyd with a score of 85.5.

On Friday evening, April 14 the Byemoor arena grounds were crowded with vehicles as people from the surrounding areas and beyond had come to witness some bull riding at the 2017 Byemoor Bull-a-Rama.

With Stettler’s Armando Davila leading the table in the qualifying round with 85.5 and a prize money of $1,170, Primeau wasn’t too far behind with 83.5 and $877.50. He was followed by Sunnybrook’s Michael Ostashek with 83 and Lacombe’s Neal Wallator with 82.5.

However, it was finally St. Albert’s Kyle Primeau who won the event with a score of 86 and $1,755, followed closely by Calgary’s Cody Floyd with a score of 85.5 and prize money worth $1,170.

With 30 bull riders being sponsored for the event by various local and out-of-town businesses, the Bull-a-Rama was a great draw.

Among the stock contractors were Big Country Rodeo, Midnight Bucking Bulls, Kaycee Rodeo Bulls, Main Event Inc. and Bart Thompson.

Tyrone Mains and Dakoda Simmes were the bull fighters, and Brent Thompson was the pick up man.

Announcer Tyson Pietsch kept the crowd on its feet as always with some exciting commentary, while judging the event were Dustin Tompkins and Jason Mowat.

Hosted by the Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society, this event has been a mainstay of the community for 23 years.

With more than 500 people attending this year, Anita Mappin, treasurer of the Ag Society said that they had a hard time getting sponsorships in, but finally managed to get what they needed to “get the show going.”

“We have some ideas that we would like to incorporate in the future, but everything costs a lot of money, and with the economy the way it is, it’s not feasible,” Mappin said.
