The stands at the 2014 PBR Invitational at Balzinore MC Park, located south of Langham, were filled on a grey overcast evening this past Saturday, August 23, to see the fast paced action of professional bull riding as the PBR Bulling Riding circuit came to town, or rather, a field south of town.

This is the third year in a row that the event, formally known as the Curtis Leschyshyn PBR Classic, has come to the area. This year the event was presented by the Transall Group of Companies with proceeds going to community sports and recreation programs in Langham. See more pictures on Page 8.
