At Tuesday evening's City Council meeting in Council Chambers at 7:00 pm the council will consider awarding the bid for the Wrench Ranch Pathways Project. Part of that project is to place a pedestrian bridge across Goose Creek at this location. This is the view at the very west end of Canfield Street where the bridge would be located - some 4 blocks west of the north Main McDonalds Restaurant.
Monday's Don King Days kicked off at 11:00 am with the Don King Days Championship Polo Match between Little Owl and the No Trees. The No Trees team in white was leading 10 to 8 going into the final chukker when Joe Wayne Barry - seen here driving the ball to the goal - turned on the heat and scored three goals to give his team an 11 to 10 win.
What a Labor Day weekend of roping steers it was for Dave Sedar of Casper. Dave was the only roper of the 25 at the 23rd Don King Days to have a time in all four go-rounds that concluded on Monday afternoon at the Big Horn Equestrian Center.
On a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the 23rd Don King Days, Henry Collins boarded his bronc the old fashioned way - rode for 10-seconds - bailed off between pickup men Cody Cunningham and Jim Smith - and had the top score of 64 on the day. After two go-rounds in the steer roping Casey Tillard leads with 15.5 & 14.4 for 29.9 on the day.
Looks like Labor Day is drawing near as the flags are up and flying, Don Kings Days is on the horizon, the last polo matches of the season (The Henry Burgess Memorial Cup & Don King Days Cup) are on tap and the Hang Gliders Fly-In will take place at Sand Turn in the Big Horn Mountains.
