The annual Sheridan Jaycees and Sheridan Media Beds Along the Bighorns race had six entries this year, all of them trying to claim the World Bed Racing Trophy and $500 cold hard cash. Bob’s Super Clean is a perennial favorite.
The field included hundreds of runners for the annual Sneakers and Spurs race in downtown Sheridan on Friday morning. The event is a five-kilometer run with the finish line right in the heart of Sheridan at Grinnell Plaza. Sean Wilde was the first one to complete the course and says his cross country teammate helped him win the race.
The crowds at 6AM were already growing on Grinnell Plaza in preparation for Sheridan WYO Rodeo Friday events. The Kiwanis have been preparing pancakes for decades and Kiwanis members say the pancake breakfast is their biggest fundraiser of the year.
The Sheridan WYO Rodeo nearly marks the halfway point in a professional cowboy’s quest for the National Finals Rodeo in December. The Sheridan County Fairgrounds was packed last night with people who witnessed many of the nations top cowboys compete.
Forward Sheridan has been without a president and executive director since this spring when former CEO Philippe Chino left to take a job in Campbell County. After searching for several months, Forward Sheridan Board Chairman Dick Weber says they have hired a new director.
