Wednesday morning brought more fans and more contestants to the arena for the second day of Wyo Rodeo slack. Fans were able to watch barrel racing, tie down roping, steer wrestling, and team roping runs to find out who will be competing in the first night performance of the week.

The annual Kiwanis Duck Race is scheduled to take place at Kendrick Park Friday afternoon at 1, despite Big Goose Creek being extremely low within the park.

All three of the top contenders in the men's division sent their boots flying more than 110 feet, but Matthew Wigglesworth sent his boot fractionally farther to take first prize in the men's boot kick-off Tuesday night.

Among the crowd at Tuesday's Sheridan-WYO Rodeo Boot Kick-off was Dana Bowman, founder of the HALO for Freedom Warrior Foundation, who'll be skydiving into this week's rodeo performances.

Tuesday morning more than 70 steer ropers backed into the box during the first slack performance of Wyo Rodeo.

As the Sheridan WYO Rodeo continues to grow each year, the WYO Rodeo Board and Gold Buckle Club have taken steps to accommodate that growth by recently adding seats and making access to the chute side of the arena safer at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds.

As Sheridan Media previously reported, crews with Goose Valley Fire Department, Sheridan Fire Rescue, and Ranchester Fire responded to a grass fire late Friday afternoon approximately 12 miles north of Sheridan off of Beatty Spur Road.

The Sheridan Wyo Rodeo Wranglers have been carrying flags for months, preparing for the busy and exciting Wyo Rodeo Week. With only days left before the first performance, more than 40 local volunteers gathered at the fairgrounds on Sunday to practice the grand entry.
