Canadian Rockies
International Rodeo 1999

July 2-4, 1999 Calgary, Alberta

MUD. That was the overwhelming theme of this rodeo in 1999. That and keeping yourself dry and thawed.

Spectating and keeping an eye on things 
-the stretcher isn't exactly an encouraging
sight for a new competitor!

Ropers geting ready to head into the ring

The crowd was pretty small this time around, everyone huddling under cover from the rain and cold. But everyone had a blast from what we could tell....

Me and my buddy Andrew who lives in Calgary

LA, Vancouver, Chilliwack and Montana representatives.....

Perry and Gefry

I didn't lie, MUD....

It was so muddy, that a few brave (and creative) souls performed synchronized mud swimming to music

The finale
