News and Events


The 2023 Finals was a huge success and we would like to thank all the committees, contestants, volunteers, contractors, personnel, and spectators that contributed to this.  The atmosphere was electric for each performance. We hosted over 600 runs / gates, gave away over 100 buckles, and provided a great community event.

While the Chinook Rodeo Association and Foothills Cowboys Association (FCA) enjoyed great success with our combined 2023 seasons, the FCA has decided they will pursue their own 2024 rodeo season. The two associations will continue to co-approve, where committees request. However, members who want to compete in both the CRA and FCA will be required two purchase two separate cards, as done prior to the 2023 rodeo season, unless the rodeo is dual approved, then only 1 card is required. The CRA will host their own finals in 2024.  Regarding the inquires about the  2023 Finals expenses; this has been paid solely by the CRA.

The CRA has already started planning for the 2024 for our 9th consecutive year at the Silver Sage Community Corral in Brooks on Oct 11-13 2024.   The CRA will remain dedicated to improving the sport of rodeo and continue our discussions with all other rodeo associations on how to achieve this goal.
