Hervey Claims Second BRC National Championship

LLOYDMINSTER, Saskatchewan -- Brian Hervey of Brant, AB made Bull Riders Canada Inc. history on Saturday night at the Lloydminster Exhibition.

Hervey was awarded the Jensen Silver buckle for winning his second BRC National Championship after an incredible season in which he amassed over $31,000 and 6,500 points.

Before the conclusion of Saturday's Finals, Hervey announced he would be retiring from the sport that evening.

"I don't have the fire I once had and I'm ready to move on to the next chapter of my life," Hervey said. "I started riding bulls for the love of riding bulls, and winning $30,000 is a great achievement. I'm grateful for the BRC to have that much money up to win. I'm  excited to see where the BRC is going take guys in the years to come. It feels good to make all that money and come out the National Champ. As far as going out on top, I couldn't ask for a better outcome."

He leaves the bull riding arena with two championships and finished the Wrangler Bull Riders Canada Finals III presented by The Patchwork Group in a tie for second overall, taking home over $3,600 in earnings.

This year's finals event championship was won by Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan's Cody Coverchuk. Coverchuk put up 82 points in round one and came out with the win in round two thanks to an 86 on Blue Stone from the Flying High Rodeo Co. Heading into the Fox Drilling Finals he led the pack.

When no one unseeded him during those finals, his last ride only meant a bigger check as he'd already won the finals title and buckle. Unfortunately he would come up short on Cooper's Comet from Vold Rodeo but still went home with nearly $6,000 in earnings to finish fourth on the year.

Second at the finals, in a tie in the aggregate with Hervey, was veteran bull rider Miles Pennington. Pennington was 82 points in round one and followed that up with a win in the finals thanks to an 83.5 on Lazy S and Bonkowski's Crossfire's Pipe Slinger. Pennington also went home with just under $6,000 in earnings, finishing eighth on the season.

Manitoba's Landon Lockhart finished fourth in the aggregate and took home over $4,600 in earnings courtesy of an extra $1,000 from Friday's Fox Drilling Grudge Match. Rounding out the top five on the weekend was British Columbia's Matt O'Flynn.

Minion Stuart from Skori Bucking Bulls was awarded the Bull of the Finals buckle after his 44 point out in Friday's Grudge Match against Will Purcell.

$316,820.50 was paid out in third season of Bull Riders Canada Inc.

Ranchman's President & CEO, Harris Dvorkin Inducted into the Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame

The following story was written by Dave Poulsen and appears courtesy of the Canadian Pro Rodeo News

Talk to a rodeo contestant or fan in Fort Worth, Texas, Pendleton, Oregon, Morris, Manitoba, or Melbourne, Australia and it’s very likely that they know about the Ranchman’s in Calgary. And if they’ve ever been to Calgary, there’s a strong likelihood that they’ve been to the famous Macleod Trail establishment that has been part of the city’s night club scene since the doors opened on April 28, 1972.

What may not be as well-known are the many other contributions Ranchman’s President & CEO, Harris L. Dvorkin, has made to the sport of rodeo over the years. It’s those contributions that will see the tell-it-like-it-is businessman/entrepreneur inducted into the Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame as part of the 2015 class.

Harris’s formative years were split between his South Calgary home and the family farm near Rumsey, Alberta. Both played roles in the development of his lifelong love of the country lifestyle. While he was adopted and raised by his maternal grandparents, Rose and David Dvorkin, his stepfather, Dan Rosenthal also played an important role in introducing Harris to people like Hank Willard (of chuckwagon racing fame) who helped shape Dvorkin’ s admiration of and passion for the cowboy way of life.
His city home was next to a livery stable and not far from a neighbourhood pasture where he rode Shetland ponies his grandfather had acquired for his Jewish-cowboy grandson. After graduating from Western Canada High School, the younger Dvorkin tried university (pre-med) for a short while before discovering that the restaurant business was his true calling.

While working as a Leasing Manager for United Property Management and later Allarco Developments, Dvorkin honed his skills as a restaurant troubleshooter and served as General Manager of the Beachcomber Restaurant in downtown Calgary. At the Beachcomber he created Alberta’s first real night club featuring not just dining but, drinking and dancing, and stay-late entertainment (the first act Dvorkin hired was Tiny Tim).

But during this time, Dvorkin continued forming friendships with prominent members of the rodeo community—Wayne Vold,  Gid Garstad, Buddy Heaton, the Crowchilds and Gladstones among them. When the Beachcomber burned down, a new opportunity presented itself—an under-construction building at was at that time the southernmost tip of Macleod Trail. Dvorkin’s then father-in-law, Kai Smed, was hired as a General Contractor on a building targeted to be a Bar X steakhouse kind of place.  They ran into financial difficulties and Harris and business partner Kevin R. Baker —a friend of the Smed family—got involved and the Ranchman’s was born, initially as a modest 125 seat self-serve cafeteria and small 99 seat dining lounge. One of the first hurdles to overcome was the remarkable Alberta Liquor Board rule that banned the wearing of cowboy hats in licensed premises.

Dvorkin had other—and much larger--plans. Those plans came to fruition quickly and by the time the 1973 edition of Calgary’s Rodeo Royal rolled around, Dvorkin had convinced a reluctant Wayne Vold that the Wayne Vold Show should be central to the growing popularity of the place. And with that, a bronc riding champion/pickup man/stock contractor also became a country music sensation. And the Ranchman’s popularity was soaring.

By 1976, it was clear that an expansion was in order and with the framework for the addition in place, Dvorkin had a unique idea for moving the expansion forward. “It was a Saturday night,” Dvorkin recalled with a smile. “The place was packed and just before our regular closing time I made an announcement that I needed some help. We kept the bar open and by morning the wall between the regular room and the new one was gone and the rooms were connected.” Thus, with a little Dvorkin ingenuity at play, the famed Saddle Room was born.

In 1995 another expansion took place and three small to medium-sized rooms became one very large space with a 1050 seating capacity. The move to Texas-style honky-tonk was complete. Over the years the Ranchman’s has been recognized as the Calgary Country Music Association Club of the Year six times, and has been name Canadian Country Music Association’s Country Club of the Year award nine times, most recently in 2013-14. Many of country music’s biggest stars have played the Ranchman’s; the club has been a setting for several movies, and in recent years, the Ranchman’s Renegades PBR Bullbustin’ which takes place in the Ranchman’s parking lot—has become a major fund-raiser for the Project Warmth Society, supplying complimentary clothing for kids in need in southern Alberta. The event also provides important financial support for the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre.

It was 1999 when Dvorkin made a $1000.00 wager with former steer wrestler, Ron Scott, that the Ranchman’s could host a bull riding event in its parking lot. Scott lost the bet as 2015 marks the 16th year of the unofficial and immensely popular pre-Stampede kickoff.

The Bullbustin’ event is only one of the many ways Harris and his much-loved night club have contributed to the sport of rodeo and the community in general. Dvorkin was a co-founder of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association’s Cowboy Benefit Fund. He was instrumental in the Boys Steer Riding event being included in the Canadian Finals Rodeo. As well he assisted in barrel racing’s becoming a major event and receiving equal money and for many years Dvorkin sponsored the barrel racing champion’s bronze and contestants’ breast collars. As well, the Ranchman’s sponsors CPRA Season Leader saddles in saddle bronc riding and bull riding and continues to sponsor the CFR steer riding award. Dvorkin also sat on the Calgary Stampede rodeo committee for twenty-one years, dating back to 1974 and he is currently on the Alumni Committee.
The Ranchman’s has also been the venue for countless fundraisers for cowboys and cowgirls who have encountered bad luck and difficult times. Harris estimates that over the years more than two million dollars has been raised to help the rodeo community and the causes the Ranchman’s has supported.

Of his induction into the Hall of Fame, Harris Dvorkin shakes his head. “It blew my mind. It is an unbelievable honour.” Then he laughs, “It’s about time they got around to having a token Jewish guy in there.”

There’s nothing “token” about the contribution Harris and his famous establishment have made to rodeo and the place both occupy in the history of the sport. Harris Dvorkin will be inducted at this year’s Ranchman’s Bullbustin. His wife, Lynette, his five children, many grandchildren and his adopted rodeo community will no doubt be very proud. 
And with good reason.


Lynx Brand Fence and CARTEL Energy Services renew Season Partnerships with Bull Riders Canada Inc.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Bull Riders Canada Inc. is excited to announce that Lynx Brand Fence and CARTEL Energy Services have each renewed as Season Partners for the 2015 Season.

"The momentum and growth of Bull Riders Canada Inc. since inception is truly something that we are thankful to have been involved with and look forward to sharing for another fantastic season," said CARTEL Energy Services President, Dean Falkenberg. "Aligning ourselves with an extreme sport that appears in the geographical areas we also serve makes sense. This partnership is a way to have a constant presence in Western Canada and has resulted in measurable growth to our business."

"We have seen our requests for quotations and services increase as a result of partnering with Bull Riders Canada Inc.," confirms Lynx Brand Fence President, Jason Madsen. "Lynx Brand Fence services the Calgary, Edmonton and Kelowna markets as does Bull Riders Canada Inc. Their exposure, reach and fan base support has resulted in a tangible return for our marketing dollar."

"Bull Riders Canada Inc. is very proud to have earned the trust and support from Lynx Brand Fence and CARTEL Energy Services for another season," said Russell Friend, Bull Riders Canada Inc. President. "These two organizations are leaders in their respective fields, operate with integrity and continue to do things that allow their companies to stand out; very similar models to Bull Riders Canada Inc. When we approached them about becoming involved in our inaugural season, we had a strategic plan, but no assurances that they would receive a fair return on their marketing dollar. The fact that both of these organizations have realized a tangible return and are excited to remain with Bull Riders Canada Inc. for another season confirms that the partnership is working."
