General Manager Yvonne Paulson was very pleased with the response to the revised earlier time for the rodeo and credits that with huge attendance at the event including a total sell-out on Saturday. Paulson received numerous compliments about the change in format for the rodeo, including praise from organizers of a rodeo in Alberta.
Paulson is very grateful for the people of the City of Armstrong for their support, as well as the thousands of locals and out-of-towners who supported the annual IPE.
