Chuck Melin

Born in Calmar, Alberta, Canada, in February of 1951, Chuck has two daughters: Allison, who is married and lives in Southbend, Indiana, and Tayler, who lives with him. When not on the road, Chuck supplies liquid nitrogen to medical facilities.

He is married to Ruth who lives in Douglas, WY, and is a registered nurse. Chuck and Ruth met at the Douglas NSPRA Rodeo.

Chuck began rodeoing in 1969, competing in several amateur associations in the steer wrestling. He joined both the CSPRA and NSPRA in 2002. Since then, he has won the CSPRA SW Season Leader seven times and was the CSPRA 50+ SW Champion six times.

In addition, he won the 2005 Kenny McLean Memorial Cowboy of the Year buckle.

Chuck won the 2005 and 2006 NSPRA World Champion 50+ SW and has been Reserve Champion 50+ SW several times. Several years ago he began team roping.

As strong as he has been as a contestant, Chuck deserves credit for being equally strong as a supporter of both Associations.

He has served as SW director, committee representative, President of CSPRA, and Canadian Rep on the NSPRA Board. In addition, Chuck judges rodeos whenever needed.

Everyone who knows Chuck gives him credit for the way he pitches in at every rodeo he goes to, in all events: rough stock, timed event, barrel race.

Chuck is always there to pull the barrier, to flag the rough stock, to set the barrel pattern, to run the gat, or to do whatever needs doing.

Although Chuck will soon be 60 years old, he is fit and healthy, and rodeo is his life. His friends and fellow competitors expect him to continue to be competitive and supportive for many years to come.
