First inductions for Wyoming Cowboy Hall Of Fame
October 5, 2014
Several cowboys from across the state that is nicknamed after them will be honored this fall for doing what they loved. State inductions into the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame will be Sat., Nov. 1 in the Ruthe James Williams building on the Wyoming State Fairgrounds in Douglas.
Festivities will kick off with a meet, greet and mingle time when many great cowboy tales are certain to be told, followed by a buffet meal provided by the Boot Hill management. An impressive array of cowboy and Western items and gear have been donated for a silent and live auction, so bidding will be hot during this informal time. Some unique items already consigned include a handmade mohair cinch, hand-twisted horsehair mecate, various types of artwork, homemade sourdough bread…if you're not there to check it out, you'll miss out on the first best Christmas shopping opportunity of the year. All proceeds of this event will benefit the WCHF.
Induction ceremonies should begin between 3:30 and 4 pm and will include a brief power point presentation of each honoree's cowboy history. This is the historic cowboy event of the year for Northeast Wyoming so do not miss it.
Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame's (WCHF) first Regional Honorees were inducted last week. Region 1 includes Campbell, Crook and Weston counties, and their induction celebration was Sept. 27, at Boot Hill in Gillette.
Ten Wyoming regions are voting on honorees, and the WCHF selected the first class of state honorees Sept. 22 in Casper.
For Region 1, Edwin Earl "Cam" Camblin (1877-1950) and Joseph Michael Maycock (1873-1946) will be honored posthumously, with many of their descendants and family members expected to be on hand. Living honorees are Charles "Ellis" Reynolds, 90, of Moorcroft and William B. "Will" Jones, 81, who ranched in Sheridan, Johnson, Campbell and Weston Counties and now lives near his daughter in Texas.
