Af­ter a suc­cess­ful de­but and en­core, the CINCH Boyd Gam­ing Chute- Out is gear­ing up for its third run. From Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 7 to Satur­day, De­cem­ber 9, the Or­leans Arena will be the place to be to catch rodeo ac­tion in the after­noons, as top ath­letes and stock square off in Rodeo Week’s new­est tra­di­tion.

The unique im­me­di­ate dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion chute-out for­mat pits com­peti­tors against one an­other each af­ter­noon for three rounds, cul­mi­nat­ing in a cham­pi­onship event on Satur­day with the two high­estscor­ing com­peti­tors in each event. Bare­back rid­ing, steer wrestling, team rop­ing, sad­dle bronc rid­ing, tie-down rop­ing, bar­rel rac­ing and bull rid­ing fill each af­ter­noon with up-close and per­sonal ac­tion in the Or­leans Arena.

From leg­endary ath­letes like Fred Whit­field and Joe Beaver, to many of rodeos top rid­ers and rop­ers, the ChuteOut brings a unique mix of ac­tion and tal­ent. Whit­field won the 2016 Tie-Down Rop­ing Event with a 7.64 time in the fi­nal round. Beaver com­peted in 2016 fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the fi­nal round with his heal­ing part­ner McCoy Pro­fili. These af­fa­ble tal­ents are fan fa­vorites at the Chute- Out, greet­ing fans and sign­ing au­to­graphs af­ter each of the per­for­mances, along with all the com­peti­tors.

Leg­endary an­nounc­ers Bob Tall­man and Roger Mooney em­cee the ChuteOut events with en­ter­tain­ment be­tween events by the PRCA Bar­rel­man, Justin Rum­ford. Rum­ford hosts Boyd Gam­ing’s NFR watch par­ties ev­ery evening at the Or­leans, while Beaver co-hosts Na­tional Fi­nals Tonight ev­ery evening at 10:30 pm, along with Don Gay and Dan Miller. Chute- Out win­ners get their buckles dur­ing the nightly fes­tiv­i­ties as well.

Cen­tral to the Chute- Out ex­pe­ri­ence is its unique app, which gives fans an in­hand VIP Pass to all the ac­tion. Avail­able for iPhone and An­droid, the app pro­vides fans with live scor­ing re­sults, con­tes­tant bios, ex­clu­sive videos, in­for­ma­tion on events and in­stant ac­cess to the lat­est Chute- Out news.
