Postcards From 2012 NFR: Let The Games Begin
It’s that time of year again: The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo takes over Las Vegas starting today and runs until December 15th, with daily rodeo action, live entertainment, Fanfest 2012, the Cowboy Christmas Gift Show, and much more.
Our chief rodeo correspondent, former Miss Rodeo America and Texas Cowboy Hall of Famer Pam Minick, will be checking in with occasional updates from NFR.
Reporting For Duty
Just picked my NFR credentials at the Thomas & Mack Center, which will be the dirt-filled home of the major rodeo action throughout the event. Las Vegas is full of boots and cowboy hats. I'm doing my research on the top 15 barrel racers for Thursday's Women's Professional Rodeo Association Star Luncheon, which I'm going to emcee with the legendary Hadley Barrett. All the contestants are fired up and ready for the first go round!
