Administrative history

It is estimated that the Bezanson Stampede had its first little rodeo in 1946, with Bob Fenton as manager. Managers through the years were as follows: 1950, Johnny Stark; 1957, Harvey Weegar with Lorne Goff as secretary; 1959, Harvey Weegar; 1960, Gerald Goff; 1961, Earl Weegar with Harvey Weegar as secretary, 1962, Earl Weegar, and Jack Moon as secretary; 1963, Grant Moon (president of the last meetings) and Roger La Valley, secretary. The decision to have no more stampedes was made in 1963; the horses were sold and the ground rented to Agar and Morrison. The profits from the stampedes, with the exception of a few of the later years, were turned over to the Bezanson Hall Committee. In 1967, the Bezanson Stampede's assets and $1400 cash were donated to the Bezanson Memorial Hall Committee for the purposes of installing a gas furnace and two propane cook stoves in the hall.
