WWHA Roundup
Thu Jul 07, 10:39

Friends, we are getting very close to the opening day of the 15th annual WWHA Roundup in South Dakota. The event opens on Wednesday evening, July 20 with our opening reception and a presentation by Dr. David Wolff on "Finding Gold and Violence on the Black Hills Mining Frontier. It concludes on Saturday night, July 23, with our annual "Boots & Spurs" banquet. In between we have a full day and a half of great programs and panels, the Six-Shooter Awards luncheon, and the annual bus tour.

Our speakers include Bill O'Neal, Donna Harrell, Dr. James Bailey, Erik Wright, Pam Potter, Michael O'Keefe, John Boessenecker, and Mark Gardner. Our "Collectors Panel" will be on Thursday evening with Tim Hagaman, Kurt House, John Boessenecker and Peg Aplan, following the ever-popular "An Evening With..." session at which we will honor one of our historian/authors (it's a secret).

The bus tour will take us to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and a half day in Deadwood, concluding with a chuckwagon supper.

Roundup registration forms are available on the website: www.wldwesthistory.org

We hope to see you in South Dakota!
