Wrangler Bob Feist Invitational Week Returns to the Lazy E

November 26, 2020

On the heels of pandemic-prompted civic uncertainty in Nevada that forced the last-minute cancellation in Las Vegas of the World Series of Team Roping Finale, organizers of Wrangler Bob Feist Invitational (BFI) Week have good news.

The $700,000 Wrangler BFI, held for 35 years in Reno, will in March 2021 partner with the other titan of the roping industry - the $200,000 Cinch Timed Event Championship (CTEC) - as they converge the same week in Oklahoma's Lazy E Arena. With no prospect of last-minute changes, Wrangler BFI Week will happen March 14-18, immediately following the Cinch TEC on March 11-13.

"It's been an incredibly difficult year for us all," said Lazy E General Manager Dan Wall, who credits the arena's success throughout the pandemic to ints intense safety protocols, expansive camping areas and limited access in and out. "It really wears on contestants, fans, stock contractors and all involved in this sport to hear of events already canceling for 2021. Instead, we feel like this partnership between Cinch TEC and Wrangler BFI Week was meant to be. We're grateful to be able to create the best week of timed events in the world."
