It was a night of celebration at the B.C. Rodeo Association’s Annual General Meeting and Awards Banquet Oct. 27 as a sold-out crowd packed the Gibraltar Room in Williams Lake.

BCRA president Trish Kohorst said the evening was huge hit.

She added the awards are an opportunity for the BCRA to recognize the many outstanding achievements of its rodeo competitors throughout the season.

Williams Lake and area athletes didn’t leave empty handed, either, as a strong local contingent were acknowledged for their rodeo seasons.
