Two lucky readers win an NFR vacation from C&I
Las Vegas giveaway included concert tickets, lodging, more
Two lucky C&I readers were treated to an ideal cowboy vacation last December when they won a trip to the 2009 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo through our online sweepstakes.
Diane Lewis of Woodward, Oklahoma, and Jamie Walther of Decatur, Texas, won a drawing after subscribing to C&I’s weekly newsletter. They were both awarded two rooms at the Silverton Casino Lodge for three days and two nights, four tickets to NFR, and four tickets to the concert of their choice at the Silverton.
Selected in a random drawing, Lewis and Walther have each spent their lives in the saddle. Lewis grew up in a family that raised horses in the Oklahoma Panhandle, while Walther, who works as a ranch manager, grew up rodeoing and has raised his three children to compete in rodeo events
Both winners agree that they had an unforgettable experience at NFR, and they’ll be headed to future events. “You don’t realize the impact of the riders,” says Lewis. “You see it on TV, and it’s not nearly as powerful as it is when you see it right there, with your seats right above the chute."
