WPCA Chuckwagon Races
On Saturday, October 13 at the Grey Eagle Resort & Casino, gathered amongst many familiar and friendly faces, Justin Derzaph, Chuckwagon Committee chair, accepted an award for the World Professional Chuckwagon Association Top Race Committee Award. The 38th annual awards gala celebrated all who achieved greatness the past racing season.
The event, hosted by track announcer Les McIntyre was a huge success and goes to show the power of collaboration between the WPCA and the Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede.
The Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede has hosted the WPCA Chuckwagon Races on the Stampede grounds for many years. Many improvements have taken place over the years, such as extensive track renovations, ticketing system updates, school tours through the Chuckwagon driver’s barns and more, it is rewarding and we are honoured to receive this accolade.
