Casey Tibbs & Mattie Newcomb Center

We went to Pierre on Friday and attended the Honorary Party for the Casey Tibbs and Mattie Newcomb Center. It is beautiful and they have done a lot of work on it. This is Connie Stinson Price's High School Rodeo Saddle when she won the All Around in 1960.
Here is a picture of Bud looking at the High School Rodeo Booth that he helped organize for the Center. There is a lot of items but there is much more that could be on display.
This is a picture of the dress that Connie wore as the Queen of High School Rodeo.
This is a bronze that Tony Chytka made of the great trick rider, Mattie Newcomb!!
Here is the bronze of Casey Tibbs sculptured by Tony Chytka. There are many displays and memorabila in this center to see. A great new addition to South Dakota! We are off to a barrel race as just got done picking chokecherries!
