February 3, 2015
Event producer Chris Neal announced today the new location for the third-annual “Future Stars” Calf Roping. The Lazy ‘E’ Arena in Guthrie, OK is now the official home to this Memorial Day weekend event. The decision to move to this state-of-the-art venue has opened the door to endless opportunities for growth in numbers as well as expanding the range of competition to calf ropers at every level.

“My dream as a producer has always been to create the world’s most exciting and professional youth calf roping that brings together families and contestants from across the nation to compete for the highest payout and top quality awards and prizes known to our sport,” said Neal. “This move will not only accommodate the anticipated growth of our youth event, but has also allowed us to expand the range of competition to calf ropers of every age and gender.”

Chris Neal’s “Future Stars” Calf Roping will be held Memorial Day weekend May 22, 23, 24 and 25 featuring 12 & under tie-down and 12 & under  breakaway, 13-15 tie-down and 13-15 breakaway, 16-19 boys tie-down and 19 & under girls breakaway. 

CNFS, in partnership with the WPRA, will also feature an Open Ladies Breakaway and All-Girl Tie-down on Monday, May 25.

Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 25 CNFS, in partnership with the Ultimate Calf Roping, will feature numbered ropings held in the Lazy E’s newest 150x300 covered arena just outside the main coliseum. 
Contestants can expect to see the new 4-Star Aluminum horse trailer on site wrapped with a host of sponsorship logos and proudly displayed along with seven custom “Chris Neal Roper” trophy saddles and numerous other prizes and awards.

Neal said he is looking forward to accommodating contestants and their families with the help of Lazy ‘E’ Arena’s  top-notch staff and state-of-the-art facilities, which includes stalls, RV hook ups, cantina and air-conditioned coliseum—home to the Cowboy Market for a comfortable, indoor shopping experience with vendors ranging from tack, trucks, trailers and ranch equipment to boutique-style clothing, accessories and food.
“My wife and I began this event with a big vision, and partnering with the Lazy ‘E’ Arena has propelled that vision faster, farther and quicker than we could have hoped,” said Neal. “This is only the beginning.”
