LAS VEGAS –Boyd Gaming is producing a new, fun and interactive rodeo event for the sport’s loyal fans and popular competitors --The Cinch Boyd Gaming Chute-Out.
On December 10, 11 and 12, the Cinch Boyd Gaming-Chute Out will make its inaugural debut at the Orleans Arena at The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Boyd Gaming has teamed up with the event’s title sponsor, Cinch Jeans, to offer rodeo fans around the country “A New Way To Rodeo.” For the first time ever, rodeo fans will enjoy a new twist in this innovative competition, pitting popular rodeo competitors against one another in three days of action-packed performances. Fans will have the opportunity interact with the competitors and the rodeo in a new and innovative way. This event is designed to entertain serious and casual rodeo fans alike.
“Our Company’s founder, Bill Boyd, championed the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo move to Las Vegas back in 1985, and we continue our commitment to the success of the WNFR and the fans of western lifestyle entertainment,” said Chris Gibase, Chief Marketing Officer of Boyd Gaming. “More than 100,000 loyal fans of western lifestyle events and entertainment make an annual trek to Las Vegas each December to see the top 15 riders, ropers and bulldoggers compete in the pinnacle of rodeo events: the WNFR.”
Gibase continued: “Las Vegas Events and the PRCA produce great events to entertain all those that visit in December. The Boyd Gaming Chute-Out enhances the experience for fans that travel to Las Vegas with what they love, top-quality rodeo action. CINCH’s Boyd Gaming Chute-Out provides unbeatable action at a family-friendly price.”
The Chute-Out will begin at 2 p.m. each day, and will be emceed by Hall of Fame’s own Bob Tallman and celebrated rodeo announcer Roger Mooney. The competition purse totals more than $200,000 and competitors will include former and future champions that are not participating in this year’s WNFR event.
The Chute-Out event format is new and tailored to add a bit more Las Vegas-style entertainment, while maintaining the long rich history and rodeo tradition. The timing of the event allows all fans to have a full day of rodeo action -- CINCH’s Boyd Gaming Chute-Out in the afternoon, followed by the WNFR in the evening.
Boyd Gaming has been one of the largest supporters of rodeo around the country, both as a national sponsor of the PRCA and the largest ticket purchaser for WNFR in Las Vegas. Boyd Gaming is also known for its line-up of western lifestyle events before and after the WNFR, including the National Finals Tonight Show and Gary Leffew’s Legendary Buck’N Ball. Starting in December 2015, these mainstay events will be relocated to The Orleans Hotel and Casino to accommodate growing and vibrant crowds.
“We’ve established Boyd Gaming properties as the place for entertainment after the WNFR concludes each night with special events such as the Legendary Buck’N Ball, National Finals Tonight Show and more,” said Gibase. “We now invite cowboys and cowgirls to begin their evenings a bit earlier at the Orleans Arena with CINCH’s Boyd Gaming Chute-Out.”
Other anticipated events returning to Boyd Gaming properties include the Bob Tallman Celebrity Bowling Tournament at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino and Roxy’s Buckin’ Bull Honky Tonk at Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall.
