In The Arena

Bob Feist

  It is nice to see many events returning to our world of competition. Some having no restrictions and others following local guidelines. It has been announced that this year’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo will have a mask requirement policy in place. The same mandate will apply in most casinos plus public transportation along with the Cowboy Channel Cowboy Christmas at the Las Vegas Convention Center. See page 40 for more details.

So glad to see the BFI come back to Reno and host the variety of events throughout the week of June 19th-24th. It is always nice to have it tied in with the Reno Rodeo and all of the other ropings going on within the radius of Reno. It has been a shaded past year and a half with all of the restrictions in place and it will be nice to be back in the Silver Legacy hospitality of this great event. If you haven’t made your room reservations, do so now as I’m sure it will be a full house and definitely the place you will want to stay to meet up with old friends and contestants of both the BFI and the Reno Rodeo.

Spring has sprung and many events are taking place that were canceled last year due to COVID. This past month I attended several functions that seem to be done in safe conditions and all used extreme caution to assure that the attendees could feel comfortable.

What a month March has been for the timed event contestants with The American, Timed Event Championship and BFI Week taking place. Many millions of  dollars were spread around during these three prestigious events.
