Opening Pagentry

The Chuckwagon Race always has an opening pagentry with a drill team. The drill team is made up of local teens and their horses (no mules yet, but we're still hoping). When we started going to the races Dan Eoff's children were still young and were a part of the drill team. The races are a strong supporter of our men and women who are in the military or who have served in the military and our flag plays a huge part of the opening every year. On Saturday, the drill team is followed by an empty wagon to pay tribute to all of the chuckwagon racers who have died in the previous 365 days since the last races. This years was particularly difficult due to Heather Wilfe, daughter of Jason Wilfe and sister of Blake Wilfe, who was part of the Bar 4W race team. On Saturday, hundreds of people wore pink shirts in honor of Heather.
