The gathering starts after the ranch rodeo!
The Wyoming Pioneer Association is excited to host the inaugural Cowboy Round Up Reunion on Sunday, Aug. 20. It will begin after the Wyoming State Ranch Rodeo Finals that will be held at the State Fair grandstands that same day at 1 p.m.
The Wyoming Pioneer Association has a goal of making the gathering an annual event.
“We’ve wanted to do this for some time,” says Mary Engebretsen who has been the driving force behind the gathering. Mary is co-chairing the event with Vic and Jane Garber and Dona Vold Larsen. They are hopeful that those attending the ranch rodeo, as well as anyone interested in Wyoming’s rodeo history, will join in the gathering.
Anyone wanting to have their saddle, spurs, belt buckles, and etc. showcased need to call Jenna at the Wyoming Pioneer Memorial Museum 307-358-9288, to save a spot in a glass showcase during Wyoming State Fair week. You can also share your historical rodeo pictures. Ask Jenna to scan a copy for the Museum, and you keep your original. There are so many great Wyoming rodeo photographs, not just from State Fair but Wyoming rodeos from one corner of the state to the other.
“We are all anxious to see what people bring,” says Mary. “As you are walking up from the grandstands, be sure to check out the sheep wagon show and the new Pioneer Park featuring vintage equipment, tools and etc. Stop in at the Pioneer Museum to see the exhibits and the special saddle display.”
Mary continues, “Join us for a cool one served by the Liquor Cabinet and a chuck wagon supper prepared by Good Taste, LLC. and served out of Jane and Vic Garber’s vintage chuck wagon. There will be entertainment, cowboy poetry, silent and live auctions. Attendees will be renewing long lost friendships, making new friendships and dancing to Joe Hinckley’s 70 Miles Of Dirt Road Band.”
Tickets to the event will be available week-long in Pioneer Cabin, located adjacent to the Wyoming Pioneer Museum. Tickets cost is $20 per person. Those who can’t purchase a ticket in person can reserve one by calling Mary at 307-359-3850. Those who need a ride to the event from the grandstands can call that same number. The first 50 to purchase or reserve tickets will receive a copy of the vintage 1947 Wyoming State Fair panoramic photo that has been made into a poster.
