Quite the experience so far at the Canby Rodeo
The first two days of the 52nd annual Canby Rodeo are in the books, and for me, it's been quite the interesting two days.
I've covered the Canby Rodeo the past few years, and one thing that's made it more enjoyable this year is the weather. It hasn't been quite as hot.
And the quality of contestants this year has been amazing so far for just the first two days. Several past and current world champions have strutted their stuff on the county fairgrounds in Canby, and it's been quite the joy to see this many quality contestants out here for the rodeo here in Canby.
They may not be around long, as after talking to them, most of them usually get in the very day they perform and leave immediately after. But they do appreciate the quality of the rodeo that the committee puts on here, which is why you see them keep coming back and number of contestants rise by about 30 percent compared to last year.
And if you've been to the first two performances, especially the first day, you'll find out that I was the one that was the target for jokes by the clown. We'll detail that in next Wednesday's edition of the Canby Herald.
It's made for some long days with the slack matinee performances beginning at 4 p.m. everyday, and the rodeo going on until 10:30 p.m. and waiting for the full results to come in thereafter, but the Canby Rodeo committee has done an excellent job so far with the way their main event is being run.
You can find results for Day 1 here
and Day 2 here
And full results and a recap of the 52nd annual Canby Rodeo will be in next week's edition of the Canby Herald.

In this week's issue (Aug. 19)
In this week's sports section of the Canby Herald, we'll preview the 52nd annual Canby Rodeo.
It's finally here, and has the potential to be one of the best with the list of names expected to show up throughout the week.
All nine defending PRCA world champions will be on hand to compete sometime this week.
One of the big questions will be whether or not the bull riders can stay on the bull this year after just four survived and earned a score last summer. The top score last year was by Colby Reilly, who earned an 84.
It's another exciting time in Canby. Tickets for the rodeo are $8 for the reserved grandstand area, and $6 for general admission to seats around the arena grounds. Fair admission is also needed to get into the rodeo.
And coming up soon, we'll have the fall sports preview issue to preview the upcoming fall season at Canby High School and North Marion High School.

In this week's issue (Aug. 12)
In the Aug. 12 weekday issue of the Canby Herald, we'll take a new look at the future for athletics at North Marion High School.
The high school hired new athletic director Andy Jones, and that name should be familiar to those in the area.
Jones was a former boys basketball coach at North Marion, and assisted at various other schools including Canby under current AD Dennis Burke. Most recently, he was coaching at Kennedy High School in Mt. Angel.
We'll also take a look at the JV2 soccer program situation at Canby High School. Due to recent budget cuts, the JV2 soccer programs for both boys and girls were slashed but there is optimism that they will be brought back in time for fall.
We'll also recap the Clackamas County Junior Baseball season for area teams at Canby and North Marion, and how each team fared this summer.
The rodeo begins next Tuesday, so watch for coverage of the event here on the site with photos and updated results. We'll have a preview of the rodeo in next week's issue of the Canby Herald.

In this week's issue (Aug. 5)
We take a look back at a very successful summer baseball season at Canby and North Marion.
The Cougars' American Legion AAA baseball team defied the odds to reach the state tournament, despite drawing their talent from solely Canby High School students. Meanwhile, several other Legion teams find their talent from around their region to make up regional all-star teams. It is a great accomplishment for a program looking to rebuild after the loss of 10 seniors from last year's squad.
North Marion has also brought a new attitude, making the jump from the Junior State level to the American Legion AAA level under coach Randy Brack.
Just two weeks until the 103rd annual Clackamas County Fair & Rodeo takes place.
And three weeks until fall sports practices begin. Has it come so soon? This summer has certainly flown by.
