10th Annual Bowsman BullARama – October 5, 2013

Submitted by:
Bowsman and District Lions Club |

The Bowsman and District Lions Club would like to invite you to the 10th Anniversary of their annual Bull-A-Rama at the Bowsman Arena on Saturday, October 5, 2013.

3:30 pm Old Western Family Steak BBQ and Saloon
7:00 pm Bull-A-Rama Rough Stock Rodeo
9:00 pm All Ages Welcome Dance

This is the third year for Bull-A-Rama as a Rough Stock Rodeo event. In the previous years it was a bull riding event only, but now includes horses as well with saddlebronc and bareback riding and is a sanctioned rodeo by the Canadian Cowboys Association, which is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year.

Over the past nine years, with just the proceeds raised from the past Bull-A-Rama’s alone, the Bowsman Lions have donated approximately $85,000 to the local area. These have included donations towards various medical assistance needs, the Bowsman Arena, Swan River Lions Skateboard Park, and the Swan Valley Lions Clubs commitment of over $300,000 towards the purchase of the Swan Valley Cataract Equipment.

Proceeds this year will again go to help support the purchase of the Swan Valley Cataract Equipment.

Starting this year, Bull-A-Rama will take place on a Saturday, which we hope will give the public more opportunity to attend. This will also allow us to provide more fun and entertainment with the addition of third event.
