The Sheridan WYO Rodeo board announced yesterday, they will be adding a new event to the Rodeo Week celebration next year. The 4th annual Chris LeDoux Spurs and Spikes Memorial Golf Tournament will take place July 9th and 10th at the Powder Horn.
The tournament will be open to the public and they will be limiting the number of teams that can enter. It began in 2007 as a fundraiser for the Chris LeDoux Memorial Foundation. The LeDoux family started the Foundation after Chris passed away in March, 2005. Proceeds from the tournament will be used to complete LeDoux Memorial Park which is scheduled to open next summer in Kaycee, Wyoming.
LeDoux had ties to Sheridan through the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, which he participated in several times, and he attended Sheridan College in 1967. Peggy LeDoux says they are thrilled to bring the tournament to Sheridan.
Sheridan WYO Rodeo Board Member Tom Ringley said they would love to keep an ongoing relationship with the tournament to keep it here in Sheridan beyond 2010.
