Rodeo Of The Year Goes To Hanover Ag Fair

 

2012 08 ag2012 Hanover Ag Fair

The Grunthal based fair and rodeo have been working hard over the last few year to pull out a first class event. The committee's hard work paid off this weekend when the Manitoba Rodeo Cowboys Association crowned them best overall rodeo for 2012. Ag Fair organizer Wayne Lemay says "what's really cool about it is, one, out of 37 rodeos across the province we got picked as number one. And the other cool thing is that it is actually chosen by the competitors".  He notes that what they hear over and over again is that the riders really appreciate the "enthusiastic crowds" and that the competitors love coming to the Ag Fair to ride.

Lemay says that this will "increase their creditability" and "attract more riders and competitors next year". He notes that its hard to compete with other rodeos when "the bulk of the action is west of Brandon". Another positive for the committee is that this status will be good for them when they apply for grants.

Lemay says that this is "really great news for us" and to add to the honour of coming in first place they have been asked to present a 90 minute session on their success. They will presenting the Hanover Ag Story to the Canadian Fairs and Exhibitions Annual Meeting in November.
