In The Arena

Bob Feist

School is back in session and summer is coming to a close along with many roping and rodeo finals winding up the year. Entries at some of the ropings have declined due to the back-to-school issue, but still seem to be strong in most ropings.

This month’s issue has interesting stories about the many events that have taken place since our last issue. You will also read about some of the new sponsors that PRCA has taken on.

“Wow!” is the word that describes the 2018 short go of the Bob Feist Invitational. Of all the years I have watched the short rounds of the BFI, this was by far one of the most exciting I have ever witnessed. It made anyone watching admire the horsemanship and roping ability the contestants displayed. A tip of my Resistol to all those who were fortunate enough to make it back to the short round. 

June is always my favorite month as it is the Bob Feist Invitational (BFI) month and time to go to the Silver Legacy in Reno. The Silver Legacy is again the host hotel for the BFI and a key sponsor for the Reno Rodeo. The Legacy is the place to be if you want to rub elbows with the top cowboys and cowgirls during BFI and Reno Rodeo week. Sunday, June 17, will be the welcome reception for the BFI at the Silver Legacy and is open to the public. If you get to Reno early, come by and check out all the BFI merchandise in the main lobby of the Silver Legacy. Make your plans now to attend this year’s event by calling the Silver Legacy at 1-800-687-7733. Be sure to ask for the special BFI rate.
