While the Stampede Blog is a great resource on what’s happening in and around Stampede Park and elsewhere year-round, there’s a lot of news stories and media releases that get published over on our e-News Portal as well.

With the Calgary Stampede only 26 days away, there’ll be more and more information released over there in the lead-up to July. So in an effort to keep everyone informed, every Saturday we’ll round up and summarize all of the articles that have been published throughout the week over on the e-News Portal here in a new feature we’ll call the CS Weekly Wrangle!

So let’s get right to it:
