The Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede Queen committee announced June 29 the participants for the 2016/2017 Queen competition.


Brittney Chomistek: From Medicine Hat, Brittney is the fourth generation to be raised on her family land, just 20 minutes northeast of the city. Brittney’s family, on both sides, have always been involved in rodeo, whether as a competitor, promotor, rodeo queen, committee member or spectator. She shares the passion for the sport of rodeo and the Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede with her ancestors and she has ridden in the Stampede Parade, helped sort timed event stock at the rodeo and last year she was a member of the Heritage & Horses Committee.
She is very excited to participate in the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede Queen Contest and is looking forward to meeting the other contestants!
Dana Blasetti:
Dana just recently graduated from Eagle Butte High School with Due Diligence. Growing up on the family farm she learned where hard work takes you and has been instilled with a desire for preserving the western lifestyle. Dana is passionate about horses and ringette. The majority of her riding has been barrel racing, but she also enjoys trail rides and being part of the Medicine Hat Stampede Grand Entry team. Dana has always wanted the opportunity to run for Stampede Royalty, and now the time has arrived! Dana would like to wish her fellow competitors the best of luck throughout the competition and is looking forward to the great friendships and memories they are all going to build together. This year’s motto states “Experience It”, and that is what she will strive to do.
Keylee Dolgolpol: (pronounced Keylee-like lock and key)
Keylee is excited for this amazing opportunity to put her name forward to be the next Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede Queen or Princess. Born in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan she now lives in Cypress County with her family.
During Keylee’s last year of high school at Eagle Butte, she competed in the Alberta High
School Rodeo Association program. High School Rodeo taught her about the substance of the horse and the character of the rider that gives one the heart of a champion, both inside and outside the arena. She is looking forward to meeting many new people and gaining many wonderful experiences throughout this journey.
