Graphics Supplied By Our Partner Tactical Grafx
With the start of the 2015 Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo just six short days away the entire team here at TheRodeoRoundUp.com are finalizing our plans for our 10-day coeverage live from Las Vegas! Some big things have happened since the PBR World Finals just one month ago and you will notice a huge change in the coverage and website features.
We were very excited to announce our new partnership with our friends at AVID Visual Imagery Rodeo Photography earlier but we have since expanded even more. We are jointly very pleased and honored to announce that tactical Grafx have decided to come on board to be part of the team for the 2015 WNFR! What this means for you is better enhanced graphics to share accordingly and we are also looking at doing a 2015 WNFR recap video for you all to keep and share once the event is over. All of these fantastic changes are very exciting for all of us and should be for you as well once you see what this will do for our coverage from Las Vegas!
I clued you in yesterday as to some other things we are going to be covering and I want to expand on one of those things a little bit for today’s announcement. For the first time in nearly ten years the freestyle bullfights will once again return to the WNFR festivities! The Rodeo Round Up team has been granted permission to shoot and obtain exclusive athlete interviews from all the action inside the arena at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Be sure to check back for updated statistics and coverage from the BFO event from this year’s WNFR!
Today we bring you this courtesy of the NFR Experience:
1985 — The first NFR was held in Las Vegas – and what a history it has been. The rodeo has been an integral part of the Las Vegas success story over the past two decades, a time period that has seen the city’s population jump from 590,000 to 1.7 million, and its annual number of visitors from 14.2 million to some 37 million. Also during that period, Las Vegas’ total room inventory has jumped significantly from 53,000 in 1985 to more than 135,000 total rooms today. During the competition, when the halter broke on Scamper, barrel racing great Charmayne James’ great horse, she didn’t panic even though she had little control over the horse. Scamper finished the run and stopped the clock in 14.40 seconds to win the round.
