RAM Rodeo Tour – Orangeville
Rodeo Field Trip – June 17, 2017
The RAM Rodeo Tour comes to Orangeville on the weekend of June 17/18. We are planning to attend the Saturday event but, if that date won’t work for you personally, you might choose to attend Sunday.
In fact there are rodeos in Southern Ontario communities throughout the summer. Here’s the schedule:
June 17-18 | Orangeville
June 24-25 | Minden
July 15-16 | Simcoe (Norfolk)
July 29-30 | Beachburg
August 5-6| Tweed
August 12-13 | Exeter
August 19-20 | Grand Valley
August 19-20 | Forest*
Sept 21-22-23 | International Plowing Match (Walton)
Sept 30-Oct 1 | Markham Fair
You can find all the details here:
The Rodeo begins at 2:00pm but I suggest that you arrive no later than 1:00pm in order to stake out a good spot for shooting.
Admission is $25 at the gate or $20 if you purchase you ticket on-line in advance. I usually accept the extra $5 charge and buy at the gate just in case the event is rained out. I leave that decision to you.

What to Bring
Zoom Lens. A fast 70 – 200mm works very well. I also used a 100-400mm at times.
