Rycroft Ag SocietyA Message From the President

On behalf of the Rycroft Agricultural Society Board of Directors, Members, countless volunteers and sponsors; I would like to welcome you to the “Glacier Ridge Ventures Race the Eight Chuckwagon Races” in Rycroft.

We are very pleased to be working with Glacier Ridge Ventures as our feature sponsor of the Rycroft Race the Eight Chuckwagon races. Glacier Ridge Ventures has been a continuous supporter of the “Race the Eight” Chuckwagon races here in Rycroft and together, we invite you to join us at our July annual event.

Originating in 1912, our society is deeply rooted in the Central Peace community. Many of our members have ties to the early farming families in the region and embody the Society’s rural values and local focus.

Our committees have worked to grow this event year after year for your enjoyment and ours. We have been so fortunate to receive great support from local businesses, individuals and family farms. 

Rycroft, Alberta CanadaOur sponsors are an integral facet of our team and we appreciate their continued assistance. As you can see, we have undertaken many improvements with the largest project being a three phase renovation of the Rycroft Ag Center. The interior of the building features a new kitchen, new washrooms and mechanical upgrades. This faciity is available to private and public groups on a rental basis for receptions, meetings, renunions and other gatherings. With great community support from Provincial, Municipal, local and businesses like Glacier Ridge Ventures we are hoping to begin construction on the outside renovations to the building in the fall of 2014 with the bulk of the work to be done in 2015. 

We are looking forward to a fast paced lineup of events for all ages. Please enjoy all that we and the communities have to offer. There will be fast times as the cowboys “Race the Eight”, and the dancers kick their heels to a local band entertaining Saturday evening. 

There will be good food, good friends, good racing and many memories made!

Thank you,

Kelly Hudson
President, Rycroft Agricultural Society
