|That's a Bull|
Every year, not just year 100 is a remarkable year for the Calgary Stampede. I am a Native Calgarian, I have seen it all, I have complete respect for the hundreds of thousands of Calgarians, Cowboys, Cowgirls, Ranchers and Farmers that lay their Hearts on the Line for 10 days in July.
I spent most of this years Celebration talking to regular/extraordinary Calgarians. The ones that make Calgary a world class city. The ones that do what they do as a labor of love. With hopes that the love will somehow pay the mortgage.

Ultimately, I am in awe of all the folks that made this years festival one for the history books. Weather your job was to carry beer from one spot to the other, ask if we wanted to go faster, or you bedded the horses for the night in the Barns. Thank You.
Thank you, for your sleepless nights, your love, your losses and for sharing your Spirit. The world has yet again been able to feel what makes Calgary one of the Best places in the world to live. Grace and Gratitude for another Heartfelt year. Well done Calgary, Well done.
