Hello Williams Lake! My name is Michelle Ball and I am Miss Gustafson’s Dodge.

Hello Williams Lake!

My name is Michelle Ball and I am Miss Gustafson’s Dodge.

I was born and raised in Williams Lake and this June I will be graduating from Columneetza Secondary School.

I play on the CSS girls’ soccer and rugby teams.

I have played league and rep soccer for many years and got to represent our city at multiple play-downs, several provincial tournaments and attended the Hawaii Invitational Friendship Cup in 2011.

I also have a love for curling and was very fortunate to skip my team at the Junior Provincials in Victoria last December.

I was honoured to receive the Female  Sportsmanship Award.

I also curled in the Northern BC Winter Games in Prince Rupert.

I have had a passion for horses ever since I was very young, but there was never an opportunity to have one of my own.  I am lucky to have friends who I can ride with and we have attended many of the local rodeos.

I have been a volunteer at our world famous Williams Lake Stampede for the past three years and have enjoyed watching and supporting our local riders.

I am very excited to be running for the 2012 Stampede Royalty as it has been a long-time goal.

I am looking forward to all the new experiences I will gain as well as the opportunity to grow and achieve greater confidence as an individual.

I am also pleased to be taking this wonderful journey with these amazing ladies.

No matter the outcome, I am hoping to develop some great memories and friendships.

I would like to thank my sponsor, Gustafson’s Dodge, and the Stampede committee for continuing the royalty tradition.

I would also like to thank my family and friends for all of their support and encouragement.

It is more than appreciated.

I look forward to the opportunity to welcome everyone to the Stampede and the city of Williams Lake.


I hope to see y’all at the 86th Annual Williams Lake Stampede!
