In respect for those who lost their lives on December 6, the NFR will take a day of mourning

LAS VEGAS (December 6, 2023) โ€“ Due to the tragic event that took place on the UNLV Campus today, the Las Vegas Events Board of Trustees and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Board of Directors announced that the first performance of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeoยฎ, scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 7, has been cancelled.

"All of us are saddened by the events that occurred today," said LVE President Tim Keener. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been affected. We are grateful to all of the first responders, police, security and the UNLV community for their actions today."

"Today's shooting on the UNLV campus was alarming and deeply troubling," said PRCA CEO Tom Glause. "The PRCA is grateful for the rapid, professional response from law enforcement and first responders. Our thoughts right now are focused on the victims of this senseless act of violence."

Additional details will be announced on the morning of Thursday, Dec. 7.

The Cowboy Channel Cowboy Christmas at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South and Central Halls, will continue as planned. It will open on Thursday, Dec. 7 and run through Saturday, Dec. 16. It is open to the public.

Clay Tryan Walks Away 12/04/2023

Mostly, I just wanted to win. Losing bothered me. I enjoy what Iโ€™m doing now. And I enjoyed the 20 years I made the NFR. I didnโ€™t have a final number in mind when I set out. It was cool to make 20. But if Iโ€™d have made 19, I wouldnโ€™t be bummed. I do wish Iโ€™d have won more gold buckles. Absolutely. Why not? But even if Iโ€™d have accomplished more, Iโ€™d have probably wished Iโ€™d have done even better than that; thereโ€™s no end to it. I donโ€™t think Iโ€™d ever have been satisfied with what I did.

Here is to what comes next to the BFI highest money earner and 3x champ. Enjoy the ride, Clay.

- A Storybook Cowgirl -
The Bob Feist Invitational tips our hat to our longtime journalist and friend, Kendra Santos. This week, Santos was inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. Santos has dedicated her life and career to journalism within rodeo and western culture, including her long-time reporting of the Bob Feist Invitational.

โ€œThe BFI will always have a special spot in my heart,โ€ Santos said. โ€œBob Feist cut me the first check of my career when I was a teenager, and I started covering the BFI when I was still in college. To this day, I call him โ€˜Boss,โ€™ and he laughs and says it was 50 bucks well spent.โ€

Reflecting on a career spanning decades of Western sports coverage and revolutionary storytelling, Santos explained, โ€œTo be trusted with the stories of the people in our rodeo family is the most humbling honor of my career. I love telling the world how cool my cowboy and cowgirl friends really are, because the truth trumps Wild West stories. To have my family and friends like Trevor and Shada Brazile, and Tuff Hedeman show up for me made it an extra special day. All the people whoโ€™ve reached out with kindness and congratulations has been overwhelming. I am so grateful.โ€

โ€œWow is about all I can say about this,โ€ the 2023 Cowgirl Hall of Fame inductee exclaimed.
