College rodeo alumni to gather in Las Vegas

The National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Alumni will have a “Winter Gathering” on Dec. 13. 2012, in Las Vegas, NV, at the South Point Hotel and Casino. We would like to invite the friends of college rodeo: parents, coaches, faculty, sponsors, and especially former contestants and fans to drop by and get acquainted.

Were you a college cowboy or cowgirl back in the day? Are you a current contestant and would like to meet some of those who blazed the way for you? Are you the parent of a youngster who loves rodeo? Do you want your children or grandchildren to get that all important college education? Did the opportunity to compete lure you into college where you met great people, had a great time, learned a few things and want those experiences for your kids and grandkids? Or maybe you would just like to hang out in Vegas with some folks you know will share your interests and enjoy your stories? Want to let your Visa card cool down for a while?

If you answered yes to any of the above, plan to come to the NIRAA Hospitality Room on Thurs. afternoon, Dec. 13, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. We would like to meet you. We think you share our love of college rodeo and we would like to let you know who we are and what we do. And what we do is support college rodeo, preserve the history of college rodeo, give scholarships to current contestants and have a good time.
