PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Welcome to the 2013 BCRA Finals Championship Rodeo. This is the eleventh consecutive year which the Quesnel Rodeo Club has hosted this great rodeo event. As president of this storied organization, I’m honored to lead this group of dedicated folks who have work hard for the past year to produce our annual Quesnel Rodeo (one of the largest amateur rodeo in western Canada) and host this great rodeo event. Rodeo and our western traditions have a long history in this community. Quesnel’s western lifestyle, traditions and lifestyle go back to the 1860’s and the Cariboo Gold Rush when local cattle ranchers and cattle drovers supplied beef to Barkerville’s gold miners and prospectors.

We would also like to thank our business community, and local governments for their support. Without our great community minded corporate sponsors and the support we receive from the City of Quesnel and the Cariboo Regional District, these great community - rodeo events would not be possible.

We are honored that the British Columbia Rodeo Association has asked our rodeo club, to again host their Championship Rodeo. To all contestants we say good luck and to all of our rodeo fans we say, thanks for attending and supporting the great sport of rodeo. We look forward to meeting you at the rodeo.

Yours truly,

Scott Kirk (President Quesnel Rodeo Club)
