Winfield Ugetuk Days

Pipestone Flyer

The day started with sunshine, a pancake breakfast, a bake sale, garage sale and then for lunch, hamburgers on the grill. All this was provided by and held at the Winfield Legion.

Just before 11:00 am, a line of vehicles started to park up and down both sides of the street, and people were arriving with lawn chairs and blankets to sit on. The parade started at 11:00 am led by a pipe band and followed by a number of floats, children and horses. I was standing with a lady from Alder Flats. She stated she had been coming to this event for several years and quite enjoyed all the activities, especially the ball tournament.

Following the parade route from main street to the agricultural grounds, you could see a number of slow pitch games throughout the town. There was quite a crowd filling the stands and tables around the grounds waiting for the start of the 8th Annual West of the Fifth Rodeo. People from all around come to watch this event, including a young lady from Vancouver, stating that this was her first rodeo.

The rodeo started at 1:00 pm with the bronc riding, followed by steer riding, the wild pony race, bull riding and ladies cow riding. After the finals, a roast beef supper was sponsored by the Winfield & District Ag Society, with a dance in the arena provided by the Warriors hockey team.
