The great people of Red Deer are now the hosts of The Canadian Finals Rodeo in the fall.
Red Deer was the choice and everyone knew it prior to the announcement but it is still
pretty exciting for the rodeo crowd up in Central Alberta I am sure. Rodeo's heart could
be that Central Alberta community and the communities around it like, Benalto, Lacombe,
Stettler, Rocky Mountain House, Eckville, Ponoka and most other hamlets up that way.
Each year all of those areas have one or 2 rodeos each so my thought that Central
Alberta is the heart of rodeo country can't be to far out of place.
Congratulations to all of my old rodeo friends in Red Deer on the announcement of
Red Deer being the NEW home of the CFR.
