There will be no midway at this year Black Gold Rodeo in Leduc, set for June 2 5.Dave Rock, president of the Black Gold Rodeo, recently received word from the owner of Wildrose Shows the company which provides the midway rides notifying Rock the company will not provide the rides for this year midway.this point, there will be no midway this year, Rock told The Rep earlier this week.An unexpected scheduling conflict on Wildrose Show end is the cause, Rock said.Normally the Black Gold Rodeo runs on the last weekend of May, but since the graduation ceremony of Leduc Composite High School was scheduled inside the Leduc Recreation Centre (the main venue for the rodeo) for this upcoming weekend, the dates for the rodeo had to be changed to the first weekend of June.change was decided on more than a year ago between us and the city and when we notified [Wildrose] about the change they said that wouldn be a problem to provide the rides for that weekend, explained Rock.That all changed less than a week ago.Rock said Wildrose decided not to provide the rides for the Black Gold Rodeo because the company is also providing rides for Stony Plain annual Farmers Days Rodeo and Exhibition, which lands on the same weekend as this year Black Gold Rodeo.Wildrose Shows did not return calls from The Rep by press time on May 25.Minutes after learning Wildrose would not provide the rides, Rock was on the phone seeking other companies to provide rides for the midway, but the effort was to no avail.looked at every option. We talked with the city on the possibilities of how we could replace the midway, but there just isn anything, said Rock.tried anything we could think of, but no results. There won be a midway this year, there definitely will be one for next year, said Rock.Despite losing the midway for this year, all of the Rodeo other events and activities will be going ahead as planned.still got the Rodeo of Smiles, the cabaret, the rodeo performances, the Family Fun night, and everything else that goes on during this great weekend.
