VIDEOS/PHOTOS: 29th Annual Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo in the books

All three days of indoor saw the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex pack to the rafters

The 29th Annual Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo is in the record books, and the BC Rodeo Association season is officially underway.

Thousands in cash were awarded at this year’s rodeo, with several Cariboo cowboys and cowgirls raking in some dough for their efforts.

All three days of indoor saw the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex pack to the rafters, including Sunday’s performance where BC Cowboy Hall of Fame inductees Willie Crosina, Lawrence Elkins and Phillip Camille were honoured and recognized to kick things off.
