A former Drumheller area cowboy isn’t riding off into the sunset, he is still competing and winning.
Delmar Adie dropped into inSide Drumheller last week to tell the paper his son Glen Adie is still competing in Rodeo, and is still doing well.
Glen, 51, was at the National Seniors Pro Rodeo Association’s National Finals Rodeo in Winnemucca, Nevada over the weekend. He is a competitor in the Team Roping category and going into the event, he was ranked second as a header.
Glen was born and raised on a farm three miles from Drumheller, and he has rodeoed most of his adult life. Now residing in the Kathyrn area, he competes in the Canadian Senior Rodeo Association, and this year was ranked in the National Senior Pro Rodeo Association.
It appears Glen turned in a score of 11.5 in round two of the contest for a fourth place finish on that day. While overall he was not in the winner’s circle, he held on to a number 3 world ranking in the 50-plus-header category.
