  • Region 6 Celebration in Meeteetse, WY

    The WCHF and county committees from Big Horn, Washakie and Park counties, would like to thank the Meeteetse Visitor Center and their Day of the American Cowboy Celebration for allowing Region 6 to be a part of the celebration. All of the living inductees were present, as well as former inductee Gerald Perkins, and all deceased inductees had family present. It was such a fitting honor for all of them with a setting full of cowboys and friends! It was a great evening and celebration! See the slideshow below for pictures from the Region 6 celebration.

    W.C.H.F. CLASS OF 2017 NAMED

    The Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame (WCHF) Board of Directors conducted annual business meetings May 20 and 21 at the Ramkota Hotel & Conference Center in Casper. All current WCHF officers were voted in for another four-year term. Shelly Martinez and Wendy Auzqui, Board members who requested to retire, were replaced by Wade Lupher of Mountain View and Lee Martinez of Kaycee, respectively.  Plans were outlined for the 4th annual WCHF Honoree Induction and associated events, and the Class of 2017 WCHF Honorees was selected.

    The process of selection was begun by committees in ten geographic regions across the state soon after nominations closed. The WCHF sends each nomination to the county from which it was submitted, where regional honorees are chosen by their respective committees.  Nominees ranked at the top in each county are again reviewed during the state board meeting.

    Successful candidates and their nominators have just been notified electronically and received their invitations to the 2017 WCHF Induction Ceremony and festivities, scheduled for Saturday, September 23rd and Sunday, September 24th in Casper.
