About the National Finals

2015 SENIOR NATIONAL FINALS RODEO

The Senior National Finals Rodeo (SNFR) will be held in Las Vegas, NV at Horseman's Park. The SNFR is the highlight of the year for NSPRA members. Many have rodeoed all year, competing in 30-40 rodeos in the U.S. and Canada, and their opportunity to win a world championship is on the line as they enter this competition.

The SNFR consists of three go rounds at single points and an average at single points of a regular season rodeo are awarded.  This format allows an opportunity for contestants who have a successful SNFR to be in contention for a world title.  World champions will be recognized at the Awards Ceremony. While world titles are on the mind of many, there are those focusing on the SNFR payoff, the best of the year, and SNFR championships.  SNFR champions will be recognized at the completion of their event during the final SNFR performance.

Contestants in ten events (twenty-nine age groups) will compete at this year’s SNFR.  The attraction to Las Vegas has much of offer…McCarren International Airport offers easy accessibility from anywhere in the world; casinos offer good food and fun for the entire family; stalls and hook-ups are plentiful; and, Sam’s Town is easy access to Horseman’s Park.  All are good reasons to bring the entire family to the SNFR.

Remember, competition at five regular season rodeos is the first step in qualifying for the SNFR.  The second step is to be among the top point earners in your event during the regular season.  Rough stock events take the top fifteen competitors and timed events take the top thirty.

STALLS AND RV HOOK UPS

STALLS AND RV SPOTS - 2015 SNFR - LAS VEGAS

 

Once again it's time to start thinking about The Finals in Vegas.  For returning champions, nothing has changed. I will assign stalls and RV spots upon arrival.  This works best so as to try and get you close to your horse.  I WILL COLLECT STALL MONEY WHEN YOU CHECK IN.  For those of you who try and arrive early, there is a huge event (PBR) the weekend before our Finals and we will not get access to the stall and RV area before Monday afternoon.  Please read ALL of this so as to make your trip fun and enjoyable.

 

STALLS

$75 per stall for week.  If you arrive before Monday, October 26, you will pay extra. PAY TERRY AT EVENT FOR STALLS and SHAVINGS

Shavings - you get one free bag of shavings with stall rental and additional shavings available at event.

ABSOLUTELY NO TIE UPS TO TRAILERS OR FENCE AND NO PORTABLE STALLS.

 

RV SPOTS

We have 35 RV spots @ $75 per spot for week that must be reserved and PAID for prior to event.  You must contact the NSPRA Office (928-684-9566) by Monday, September 30th to reserve and pay for your spot.  First come first served basis.  You must pay for the spot upon making the reservation.  If you fail to pay prior to 9-30-2015, your spot will be given to next in line.  Once the 35 spots have been reserved and paid for, we will start a reserve list in case a spot comes open.  Dry camping is free.

 

This makes our 5th year at Horseman's Park in Vegas and my 5th year at managing the stall area.  Once again I ask you to enter my phone number to your contacts.  Please call me if you have questions or concerns about stalls or RV spots.  Look for my white Dodge PU or my nascar looking golf cart when you arrive.
