It’s not often something like this happens. Early in May three old bronc riders got together for supper to celebrate their graduation from Winston Bruce’s bronc riding school held 50 years ago in 1966.
With tongue in cheek, Tom Reardon explained, “For the week prior to the 1966 Stavely Rodeo the three of us attended Winston Bruce’s College of Rodeo Knowledge. We figured on being World Champions; that part didn’t work out but we did survive. When we realized that school was 50 years ago we decided to have a 50th anniversary supper on May 4th. We toured out to Cypress Park, had a wonderful meal and exchanged some colourful stories.
We stalled around quite a while but the waitress never did read the congratulatory telegram from Queen Elizabeth. Maybe it never got there.”
