It’s 13 times lucky for Deadwood’s Days of ’76 Rodeo. The Days of ’76, a Deadwood staple each July for the past 90 years, was honored with its 9th straight Medium Outdoor Rodeo of the Year award on Wednesday in Las Vegas during the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s National Convention. It’s the Days of ‘76’s 13th Rodeo of the Year award, having won four Small Outdoor Rodeo of the Year honors before moving to the Medium class.
Congratulations to Spearfish, SD resident Terrance Hupp, who recently won $231,184.55 from one of our Wheel of Fortune slot machines!
From the Rapid City Journal article:
Hupp was in Deadwood for business with his wife and was shocked to take home such a prize. He had looked away from the screen for a few seconds, and when he looked back, he was amazed to find out that he was richer.
Enjoy your winnings, Terrance!
