Video returns to Roughstock Rodeo

Even though it took some last-minute scrambling, Stettler’s Roughstock Rodeo will go ahead on Friday, April 3

Moments like these will be visible to rodeo fans who might not have found a seat in the bleachers thanks to the new video setup at the Agriplex.

Moments like these will be visible to rodeo fans who might not have found a seat in the bleachers thanks to the new video setup at the Agriplex.

Even though it took some last-minute scrambling, Stettler’s Roughstock Rodeo will go ahead on Friday, April 3 with large-screen video in the cabaret lounge this year.

According to the Agricultural Society, the video replay to the outer areas of the agriplex used to happen at the Roughstock, but in the last few years had been discontinued. With so many people coming to the rodeo, now, there’s a need for overflow in the outside areas – which also allows those who want to watch while having a drink, some food or while chatting with pals to watch while they socialize.

The project was originally to be handled by a group from William E. Hay Composite High School, but according to the Agricultural Society, the group withdrew at the last moment with no explanation.

However, after some searching, the society found someone to handle the videography, and the school rented out the video screens to the society so the project could continue.
