Guy Weadick Days has been postponed and will instead run July 17 through 20. Originally, the celebration was expected to run from June 19 through 22.

This includes the World Professional Chuckwagon Association (WPCA) Chuckwagon races, the FCA Rodeo and all other events at the High River Agriculture Grounds.

Both the High River Ag Society and the WPCA postponed the celebration due to heavy rain and a local flood watch.

Track officials from the WPCA agreed that infield and track conditions would be unsafe for competition and might not be ready even with the competition being postponed only for one day.

According to a press release issued by the Ag Society, the decision was not made quickly and the welfare of livestock, drivers and outriders came first. The rodeo was postponed for the same reasons.

Guy Weadick Days 2014 will return July 17 through 20 and both organizations–the WPCA as well as the High River Ag Society–are looking forward to the upcoming showcase.

All tickets that were purchased for this weekend will be honoured for the July performance including the tickets bought for the Saturday evening Cabaret.
