The BC High School Rodeo Association cancelled the rest of its regional, non-championship rodeos this week. BCHSRA President Tyler Kosick made the announcement in a letter online after recent public health restrictions, including the travel ban, made it difficult to go ahead with regional events without violating public health orders.
"Although every member of our board had been planning rodeos and wanted nothing more than to push forward with our spring events, we also understand that we cannot ask our members to disobey a Direct Public Health order," Kosick wrote.
"Trust me when I say that we have been busy turning over every rock to try and find a solution, loophole, or compassionate member of our government that would be willing to work through the idea of an exemption."
While the regular season events are cancelled, the association is holding out hope that it can go ahead with its junior and senior provincial championships, as the current restrictions are set to expire following the May long weekend.
