Kapuskasing Lumberjack Festival - Tee-up and Recap

Wednesday, 31 July 2013 01:21

For the third consecutive year I joined Rawhide Rodeo Company in presenting Bull Riding, Bronc Riding and Barrel Racing at the Kapuskasing Lumberjack Heritage Festival in Kapuskasing, Ontario, Canada.

Kapuskasing is probably the farthest North someone would ever get in Eastern Canada... a heck of a haul on #RodeoRoad, but when we get there, we have a blast and the fans are amazing!

For this trip, I did an event "tee-up" and recap which was featured on the Makin' 8 Radio Network: online reaching over 5,000 weekly and broadcast on KWBY-FM in Stephenville, Texas.

Here's the tee-up:

Rockin' Your Action Sport, Motorsport, Equestrian Sport and Rodeo: Joe Scully, ProRodeo MC

As my next summer season embarks, I begin to reflect on the diverse array of events that I have been priviledged to be a part of.  

When my rodeo announcing began to take flight and I started achieving the goals I had set: an event in Texas, Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Accreditation, events across the North-East... I realized that diversification would be a logical step.  Aside from the polish, sound, humour, complementary music and effects that I deliver, my commentary has always been focused on "making it interesting", i.e. a storyline (tee-up matchups, or back-story with that performance being a climax), or reason to cheer on each participant.  By venturing into new territory, as I learn about a Sport or Industry, it naturally turns into great insight to be shared with new spectators, and even the competitor base.

Proudly on my roster so far:

  • Rodeo - PRCA, IPRA, amateur and open across 12 States and 4 Provinces
  • Freestyle Bullfighting
  • Freestyle Motocross
  • PBR Bull Riding
  • Monster Jam Monster Trucks
  • Demolition Derby
  • RC Car Racing
  • ICE Racing - bikes, quads and karts on Ice
  • Showjumping (well... hunter-jumper, but still intense)
  • Extreme Cowboy Racing
  • Barrel Racing
  • Heavy Horses
  • Equine Gala's
  • Equine Cabaret Shows
  • Team Penning
  • Police Horse Demonstrations
  • Roping Demonstrations
  • Roping Championships (USTRC through regional championships)
  • countless afterparties and award ceremonies

It's a passionate focus that I have for this craft, and it has been an amazing journey thus far.  I'm excited to embark on another season and be a part of an eclectic mix of events in a broad array of arenas, fairgrounds and stadiums in villages, towns and cities!

Stand clear and hold your ears... the bass line is coming.... are... you.... ready!!!!???!!!

   

Ontario Budget Day

Thursday, 02 May 2013 13:45

Let Ontario Decide

The paradigm is that Politics and Religion are taboo subjects among friends and dinner conversations. However, many of our friends and neighbours have been adversely affected by Ontario's Liberal Government, so I will share my opinion.
Today is a big day in our Province as the Budget is presented... if it's turned down, then an election will ensue.
The Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario has already said they will turn it down. But the decision will remain with the NDP, as the Liberals need one party to align with them to pass it.
Sadly, the smallest voice is again the loudest (Seat Count: Liberal 51, PC 36, NDP 18, Vacant 2).
Most likely the flood gates for further negotiation between NDP and Liberals will open, and this will drag out for weeks.
But my hope is that the NDP will align with the PC's, and will let Ontario Decide.
18 people have a lot of power today. We ask of them... let Ontario Decide.

Tweet the NDP MPP's:
