The BCRA and the North Thompson Fall Fair & Rodeo Association are pleased to announce that a three-year agreement has been reached between the two parties. The NTFFRA will now be hosting the BCRA POLARIS CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS in conjunction with their Annual Fall Fair in the Town of Barriere on the Labour Day Weekend – Aug. 31 to Sept. 3, 2018.
There are two exciting new additions to the Finals Weekend this year. The first will be the introduction of the Wildcard Rodeo held on Friday, August 31st. This is a one head showdown for members who have entered five BCRA Rodeos throughout the season. The winner in each Event will qualify for one Wildcard slot to the Finals beginning the next day. The second is a partnership with the BC Little Britches and High School Rodeo Associations which have been allocated a qualification for the finals in each of their appropriate events for the year end champions of each Association. This opportunity helps the BCRA support the youth in rodeo throughout British Columbia. Stay tuned for more announcements as we move through the 2018 Rodeo Season.
