“We wish to pay tribute to a man who, although only twenty-three when he conceived an idea of great consequence and only twenty-seven when he was able to bring it into reality, was a pioneer in the truest sense of the word. For it was he who first conceived the idea of Calgary’s first Stampede and it was he who, when only twenty-seven years of age, promoted and brought the 1912 Calgary Stampede into being, the precursor of the present Stampede feature of the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. This young man was Guy Weadick.”
