Cheyenne Frontier Days announced Tuesday that it is full in six of the eight events it contests at its annual rodeo.

The top 50 cowboys in tie-down roping and steer wrestling decided to skip the 123rd “Daddy of ’em All” after it was announced CFD would be using a tournament-style format for the first time.

CFD also will contest women’s breakaway roping for the first time in its history.

Slack performances start with barrel racing July 12. The main performances start July 20.
