The Bull-O-Rama is fast approaching. Councillor Bob Coreless was plugging it at the Regular Meeting of Council on Monday and decorations are going up for rodeo week. This year, the primary charity of choice to fundraise for is the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation.

“The Bull-O-Rama is on this Saturday, it starts at 7, doors open at 5:30,” said Jack Oviatt. “There is going to be a wild horse race and there is going to be a Bull-O-Llama. The kids are going to do a Llama scramble, trying to get a $50 bill off a Llama at half time. We’re going to auction off a Keri Price Jersey at half time.”

Breakfast starts at 9: Am at the arena. This year’s clown is crAsh Cooper from Saskatchewan, who is also known as Ash Cooper, the host of Cowboy Country. The wild horse racing is sanctioned by the Canadian Wild Horse Racing Association and will consist of a team of locals racing against the regulars on the Circuit.

“Profits from Bull-o-Rama are distributed to local charities and associations. One of the main beneficiaries this year is the newly established Kitimat General Hospital Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to raise money for mayor projects and equipment for health services in Kitimat. This money is not intended to replace investment from NHA, rather it will fund areas not within NHA`s current budgeting limits,” Said Doug Read.

So come on down Saturday, June 11th and have a great time at this year’s Bull-O-Rama.
Thanks Walter, this is great.
