In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cochrane Lions Rodeo Committee will be closely monitoring changes and updates to the AHS guidelines and recommendations. We will continue to update this page with information on our 2020 Lions Rodeo Event.
EFFECTIVE MAY 7, 2020
The Cochrane Lions Rodeo Committee in accordance to Public Health orders, will be constantly monitoring the ever changing COVID-19 situation to ensure that we will act in the best interests of our spectators, volunteers and contestants.
In the most recent Alberta Health Services update, Dr. Hinshaw advised that watching the summer months will decide whether September events will continue as scheduled. Followed by the announcement that the province has initiated a re-opening strategy, we remain positive.
With this new "normal" we are excited to say we are moving forward with plans to run the 2020 Cochrane Lions Rodeo but its with the understanding that there may still be a need to cancel should it fall under the advisement of Health Services. For our sponsors and contestants, we commit to you that should the 2020 rodeo be cancelled on the basis of public safety concerns, we would return 100% of the sponsorship, donations and entry fees collected.
We recognize that this is a difficult time for everyone and we hope to be able to see you at the rodeo and celebrate the end of these hard times.
