Thanks Dave. So many shots to go through. Won't bore you with any others. Lots of fun though. Drinking starts early and is on until 4 AM Crazy. JIM

Great shots. It's a shame they don't make the fences and gates a dark colour to highlight the action better. Still loved them.

Jim, you done good and I do agree with cupic, # 3 and 4 take it. Next time that you are in town pick up the phone (we are in the book) and I'll buy you a coffee or what ever. We are less than 1/2 hour from downtown Calgary and 10 minutes from the airport.

wonderful photos, I feel like I am there. Never been to the big one like this, but many others in the States. Guess you gotta have a white hat to fit in at Calgary. Thanks for the post Jim.
