Tees rodeo keeps spectators entertained with little competitive action

What has been dubbed Canada’s “biggest little rodeo” can probably stake a claim for the title of “most entertaining family rodeo”

What has been dubbed Canada’s “biggest little rodeo” can probably stake a claim for the title of “most entertaining family rodeo” with so much fun being had by so many visitors and residents of Tees over the weekend of Aug. 1-3.

In addition to traditional rough-stock and timed events and kids’ competitions like sheep riding and goat tying, the 39th edition of annual Tees rodeo had a few more added numbers that made a lot of difference in how much entertainment visitors have enjoyed over the weekend.

In addition to steer riding by two different age groups, kids’ barrel racing competitions, there was a ¼ mile horse race and most importantly a men’s costume barrel race, which drew most of the laughter on both Saturday and Sunday evenings.

From a circus clown in a bathrobe to a Superman with a cowboy hat, there was a wide range of interesting costumes that made spectators laugh throughout the races.

On the more serious side of the rough stock competition, though, there was not very many successful performances: Throughout the event, there was not a single qualifying ride in the bull riding competition and in bareback and saddlebronc events, the winners were decided with tiny margins.

The winners at the end of the three days of competition are as follows:

Ladies barrel racing — Traci Beckman,

Tie down roping — Quinton Kozak

Bareback — Clay Delay

Saddlebronc — Dave Elder

Team roping — Kelly Strandquist and Carson Rock

U12 barrel racing – Keely Groner

U15 barrel racing — Blayde Melaney

U12 Breakaway — Beau Cooper

U15 Breakaway — Lucas Brown

U12 Steers — J.W. Hart

U-15 Steers — Kolton Petracek

Wild pony race — Sage Berrert team

Wild cow milking — Clayton Beach team

Ladies’ cow riding — Lacey Barass

Calf scramble — Owen Berreth team

Ladies’ calf tying — Carrie Playfair team

Pony express — Cassidy Meston team
