Following its successful debut this past December, CINCH Boyd Gaming Chute-Out will return for Las Vegas Rodeo Week 2016. The three-day afternoon rodeo event will feature top rodeo talent competing at the Orleans Arena Dec. 8-10 (Chute-Out Barrel Racing First Place Carmel Wright).
The inaugural event, held Dec. 10-12, 2015 at the Orleans Arena, was lauded by fans as exciting, great fun and non-stop action. The Boyd Gaming Chute-Out featured world champion riders and ropers such as Cody Ohl, Fred Whitfield, JW Harris, Cody Wright and more.
“Boyd Gaming is proud of its long history of supporting rodeo in Las Vegas and we were thrilled with the incredible reception we received from rodeo fans, athletes and sponsors alike for the inaugural CINCH Boyd Gaming Chute-Out,” said Chris Gibase, Senior Vice President of Boyd Gaming. “In 2016, we will introduce even more opportunities for fans to interact with the athletes, making the Chute-Out all about ‘Ridin’ for the Fans!’ Our inaugural event was a fantastic start, and we look forward to returning to be a part of rodeo week in Las Vegas this December.”
The 2015 Chute-Out introduced unprecedented fan involvement using the Boyd Gaming Chute-Out app. This innovation provided fans with the first-ever automated “Day Sheet,” and a way to participate in the American Cowboy Chute-Out Contest. The event also broke new ground in sports betting, with the Chute-Out events being the only rodeo events listed in Boyd Gaming’s Las Vegas sportsbooks during Rodeo Week. The 2016 Boyd Gaming Chute-Out with title sponsor CINCH will be bigger and better with added innovations to enhance the action-packed rodeo event.
More exciting developments, including the competitor roster for the CINCH Boyd Gaming Chute-Out, will be announced later this year.
Room and ticket packages will go on-sale on March 21. Guests that purchased Chute-Out season tickets in 2015 will be contacted for the opportunity to purchase their seats in early March. For more information and to keep up-to-date on Chute-Out happenings, visit BoydGamingEvents.com.
