Contestant Reviews

Here's what our contestants have to say about The Big Bang!

Last updated December, 2022.

Jan Farris

By far the best jackpot i have ever attended. This event was extremely organized allowing you to know what time to show up for your run and not having to hang around waiting unless of course you wanted to stay and visit. The ground was fabulous thru all four days. Everyone was friendly and somehow managed to get great weather for the whole thing which can be a challenge in Sundre in August. Would highly recommend this event.

Top Notch Production!! I have never been to this big of a race that has ran so smooth! Location travel wise was great, parking was so well organized, and the facility was fantastic! Can't wait to go again next year.

Paige J

Excellently well run with super atmosphere! I would definitely attend again.

K. Hubley

Great event. Well organized and great to watch! The Ty Hillman talk was also a highlight for me. Such a great idea to incorporate into the event.

LeeAnne S

5 stars! Right from arrival until the end this was a great event. Well organized, fun, friendly, and professional. From the ground to the vendors and food trucks it was great!

This was the barrel racing of the summer for me. There wasn’t a detail over looked at the Big Bang. The arena grounds were great and the ground was consistent and fair. Right from the parking staff when you pulled up to the awesome volunteers out back keeping the flow going and wishing you good luck before you ran… nothing was forgotten. The food trucks, big hill to hike up, track to exercise on and indoor vendors- it was awesome to have other things to do while spending the weekend. Also, the photographer, Endless Horizons- I have never loved photos more. The quality and crispness of every shot with the back drop of the pro rodeo grounds we spot on. If you are still reading by now- let me continue. The interviews by Cassie and Lipstick and Cowboy boots and announcing truly helped things run smoothly but showcased our sport. The entering, fees and buy back system was great. Honestly- I don’t have anything other to say than please do the exact same thing next year and we will be back! Thanks to your entire team AJ, truly.

This was an amazing event to be apart of! AJ and her team ran the barrel race smoothly and efficiently. I have been to many larger scale events and this one was one of the most organized. It was fun for us contestants and it was fun for the spectators. Having different food trucks, and shopping available made it enjoyable for everyone! I enjoyed every minute of it thank you for putting on such an amazing event!
