Next up for the Rodeo Club is a pair of provincial qualifying tournaments, which will be taking place in Dawson Creek the weekend of May 11 and another being held in Hudson’s Hope during the weekend of May 25.

Both those tournaments, along with the one which just took place in Fort St. John are all important in determining whether the club competes in the upcoming provincial tournament, taking place the weekend of June 9 in Williams Lake.

However, the ride doesn’t stop there as the top four provincial teams earn berths into the national competition. This year’s national event will be taking place in Rock Springs, Wyoming and will feature competitors from Canada, the United States, Mexico and Australia.

Peck is confident the Peace Region can make it back to the National competition, as last year, Fort St. John’s Gaylene Babcock and Hudson’s Hope’s Ricky Warren each competed at the national level.
