PBR adds value to Moose Jaw show
Saskatchewan cowboys Byrne, Roy to be featured The Washboard Union
MOOSE JAW, Saskatchewan – The entertainment value heading to Mosaic Place in June is about to increase.
The Professional Bull Riders Moose Jaw Powered by Young’s Equipment will take place 7 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at the arena and will not only feature the top bull riders in Canada and a concert by The Washboard Union, the Canadian Country Music Group of the Year Juno Awards nominee.
“Alpha Bull is like no other show we have ever been part of,” the band said in a statement. “Bull riding, explosions, lights and topped with The Washboard Union live together under one roof. It ought to be illegal.”
It’s quite legal, and it’s the perfect setting as the province rolls into warmer summer nights. Now in its sixth year, the PBR Moose Jaw has become a must-see event in Saskatchewan.
“It’s one of those events that guys look forward to throughout the year,” said Tanner Byrne, the 38th-ranked bull rider in the PBR from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. “Chad (Besplug of Alpha Bull) puts on totally different events than other bull ridings, and it gets guys fired up. It’s more of a rock ‘n’ roll concert show.
“I know it’s going to be cool to ride in that one, knowing how much effort he puts into the production.”
That’s the Alpha Bull calling card. As a former bull rider, Besplug brings that experience to the table during the production. He wants the cowboys to enjoy it as much as the fans.
“Moose Jaw is a hometown crowd for me,” said Aaron Roy of Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan, who has been part of the PBR’s premier tour and now sits No. 6 in the PBR Canada standings. “They always have an amateur event there. Now with Alpha Bull, you have the band there, too, you get two highly entertaining shows.
“It’s an all-star package. You’ll get to watch all that and top it off with good music.”
The PBR was established 27 years ago and has grown exponentially over that time. What started out as the top 20 bull riders in rodeo has developed into a world-wide event, with contestants coming from a variety of countries. The various tours are so big, many contestants can focus on PBR events to gain points.
The ultimate is the premier tour, now called the Unleash the Beast Tour. The goal for each of the cowboys is to earn the points to play for the biggest pay in the game. Both the Saskatchewan bull riders have been there. While Byrne is one of the ranked cowboys on the top tour, he’s still 15th in PBR Canada.
“The PBR in Canada has been growing immensely over the last couple years with the introduction of the Unleash the Beast Tour,” Byrne said. “There is a lot more money and incentive. You have a better chance to make it on tour by competing in Canada.
“Chad started the Alpha Bull events. The more events the better. You have a shot at more money, so you don’t have to travel down to the U.S. to get your name out there.”
That’s something Besplug understands, and it’s why he wants to help grow the sport in Canada.
“Chad has been around bull riding a long time,” Roy said. “He knows it and knows how to put on a show. He’s trying to make it feel like it’s action all the time. He’s getting more events, and people are going to more of his events because they like how he puts them on.”
It also helps that Moose Jaw is so close to home for both Saskatchewan cowboys. They know they have a chance to earn some good money, compete at a high-energy event and be able to improve their status in the PBR.
“When Chad started doing these events, it gave us a new avenue to go to, and it made everybody else try to step up and produce more events and do more for us riders to get us to come,” Byrne said. “It’s cool to see. Moose Jaw is just three hours from my house. It’s a world-class event I don’t have to fly to, and I get to ride in front of my home-province fans.”
Full-Event Ticket Packages
On Sale February 14, 2019
For Immediate Release
Feb. 12, 2019
Full-event ticket packages for 2020 Scotties in Moose Jaw on sale Thursday
Hearts and Valentine’s Day go hand-in-hand, but if you’re a curling fan in Saskatchewan, Valentine’s Day and the Tournament of Hearts will be just as natural of a connection.
Full-event ticket packages for the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Moose Jaw will officially go on sale Thursday, Valentine’s Day, at 10 a.m. CT — your first opportunity to ensure you have the same great seat for every draw of the Canadian Women’s Curling Championship, which starts in exactly a year from Thursday and will run Feb. 14-23 at Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw.
And recent history would tell us that before you buy flowers or a card for your significant other, you should be going online at curling.ca/tickets, phoning 306-624-2050 or heading to Mosaic Place Box Office to get the best selection of tickets as Moose Jaw has proven that tickets can be hard to come by if you wait too long.
The 2015 Scotties at Mosaic Place was the 11th-best attended in event history, and you can expect the same kind of demand in 2020 as Canada’s best women’s curling teams gather to decide a national champion and gain some early momentum as they pursue their dreams of playing at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
Here’s a look at what will be available Thursday:
• Regular Full Event Package ($385)
• Premium Full Event Package ($409): A limited number of premium home-end seats and away-end club seats are available.
All ticket packages are subject to standard facility and ticket service fees. Weekend Packages will go on sale in the fall.
The 2020 Scotties won’t be just about world-class curling; there will also be world-class good times to be held at the legendary HeartStop Lounge, located at the adjacent Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre — fans won’t have to leave the building in order to have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the athletes, enjoy live music, dancing, drinks and food, as well as interactive activities for the entire family.
