Casper Events Center opens at 9:00 am Sunday, September 23 to welcome the 50 men and women selected for induction with the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame (WCHF) Class of 2018. They’ll join 186 WCHF Honorees seated since 2014.
A cowboy social for WCHF Honorees past, present and future, their friends and family members, will begin at 6 pm Saturday, September 22 in the Casper Events Center. Food, drink, conversation and musical entertainment will highlight the evening as participants enjoy shopping WCHF branded merchandise and collectible commemorative items. For a mere $5 you can join the fun and mingle with the crowd.
Sunday’s 5th Annual Induction festivities include fine food and drink, cowboy camaraderie, entertainment by Clear Out West Radio hosts Jim and Andy Nelson of Big Piney and Emcee Chuck Larsen of Hulett, a large and varied silent auction, opportunity to select and order commemorative WCHF belt buckles by Tres Rios Silver or even to have your favorite Honoree’s name engraved on commemorative Pendleton Whiskey bottles with the WCHF logo and year of their induction. Collectible Induction posters and booklets will also be sold; along with a variety of cowboy and cowgirl attire branded with the beautiful and distinctive WCHF logo. A superb selection of rare and highly collectible items will be battled for during interludes of adrenaline-pumping live auction action.
The stellar honor of receiving their plaques and medallions will be photographically frozen in time for Honorees and families through the skilled lens of Olie’s Images, Riverton, Wyoming. The photo booth will be adjacent to the stage and Olie says, “We plan on doing group photos after each Inductee exits the stage. At that time we will do their sittings at no fee. Prints will be available for purchase at oliesimages.com.”
