South Dakota Cattlewomen gear up for Sturgis
The South Dakota Cattlewomen are preparing for the “Sturgis Rally Beef Up Your Bike” promotion. The promotion runs Aug. 9-13 at the Stone House Salon, seven miles west of Belle Fourche, SD, on Hwy. 34 towards Huellet, WY.
The atmosphere is ideal because it is a rustic, natural setting where Cattlewomen can sit down and visit with the bikers and get an idea of their thoughts and concerns about beef.
The promotion will last until promotional items run out. Last year, due to the crowd size, it only lasted through Wednesday. At the promotion Cattlewomen hand out free beef jerky to as many people as possible. There are also 300 $5 beef certificates to hand out. Guests are asked to answer a few blogging questions or play a trivia game.
A tentative schedule of the promotion follows: Monday, Aug. 9, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Tuesday, Aug. 10, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday, Aug. 11, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday, Aug. 12 and Friday, Aug. 13 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., depending on weather. The largest crowds are expected Wednesday, as Huellet hosts a huge celebration. If interested in helping out, contact Kodi Blotsky at 605-378-3845.
