City of Swift Current thanks Community and Region for hosting 2016 – 2021 CCA Finals Rodeos

Post Date:01/27/2022 2:23 PM

For Immediate Release
January 28th, 2022

SWIFT CURRENT, SK – On Tuesday January 25th, the Canadian Cowboys Association (CCA) announced that they will be moving their annual Finals Rodeo event to a new home in Saskatoon, beginning this year.

The City of Swift Current wishes both the CCA and the City of Saskatoon the very best as they deliver continued success to the proud legacy of the Finals Rodeo in the years to come. As a result of the recent announcement, the City this afternoon released the following statement:

“We would like to thank the community of Swift Current and the region of Southwest Saskatchewan for your unwavering support in making the Canadian Cowboys Association (CCA) Finals a success from 2016 – 2021 here in Swift Current. We hope you buckled up and had as much fun as we did!

The Canadian Cowboys Association Finals Rodeo would not have been possible without the many sponsors, volunteers, and partnerships that took place throughout our community and region. While we can’t thank everyone individually (and we sure wish we could!), we would like to say a special thank you to our valuable partners, the Swift Current Agricultural and Exhibition Association, as well as Event Committee Chair Bob Hope and Local Rodeo Committees: Swift Current Frontier Days, Herbert Stampede, Beechy Rodeo, Wood Mountain Rodeo, Shaunavon Boomtown, Sandhills Rodeo, and Kyle Rodeo Committees.

In addition, our boots-on-the-ground Event Committee and the over-400 Community Volunteers were vital in the delivery of the Finals Rodeo in Swift Current each and every year. Volunteers are the backbone of every community event, and we are incredibly grateful for the tremendous efforts and energy of you – our Stable of Volunteers – over the past half dozen years.

Six years’ worth of Swift Current Finals Rodeo events were great for our local economy, and these events were only possible due to the generous support of our many local sponsors. We want to sincerely thank our Title Sponsors, Robertson Implements and Pattison Agriculture, as well as all of our fantastic, local partners, including the Plewis Automotive Group, ServiceMaster, Duracon Concrete Group, Cowtown, Pioneer Co-op, Southwest Animal Health Centre, Southwest Terminal, SaskTel, Whitecap Resources, Farm Credit Canada, Sign Here Signs & Printing, Triways Disposal Services, Rawhide Supplements, RBC, Bowditch Promotions, Pro Embroidery, CKSW 570 – Goldenwest Radio, Value Partners Investment Council, Tourism Swift Current, Tourism Saskatchewan, Peavey Mart, Living Sky Casino, Fast Trucking Services, Southwest Booster, Brandon Wiebe Graphic Design, ETG Commodities, Wheatland Machine Shop, Knight Nissan, Innovation Credit Union, Cramer, Finning, Home Hardware, Meyers Norris Penny, Syngenta, Friends of the Finals sponsors and our many other year-round event sponsors.

Last but certainly not least, we want to sincerely thank the Canadian Cowboys Association and its many contestants for allowing Swift Current to be your home for the past six years. We hope that you enjoyed our great southwest hospitality and share the memories we made together for years to come. Y’all put on one heck of a show!  

We continue to look forward to more great rodeo action in our community in 2022, including Frontier Days and the Canadian High School Rodeo Association Finals. We’ll see you there!”
