Relaxing and grilling is what Mike likes to do in his spare time between rodeos. Mike and I had a few days between the last few rodeos and enjoyed the rare down time. We traveled through North Dakota as we drove to Canada for the last two rodeos.

Mike won first place at the Bowman County Pro Rodeo in Bowman, North Dakota and second place in Williston. Check out this video of Mike in North Dakota.

Now that we’re in Canada, Mike is taking some time to help some ropers. The final two rodeos are the Hanna Pro Rodeo in Hanna, Alberta Canada September 26-28. The Hanna Rodeo is in its 28th year and is the last pro-rodeo before the Canadian Finals in Edmonton in November. This same weekend is the Brooks Kinsmen Pro Rodeo on September 26 and 27. The Brooks Rodeo is the largest rodeo in the Newell region. Competitors come from all across North America to participate. Like a lot of rodeos, Brooks has events for the whole family like carnival games and entertainment.
