The good folks at KWHS-TV51 passed this on to me. Looks like a GREAT event. Chuckwagon Association of the West Jamboree 2012 2 Day Music Festival When: September 24-25, 2012 Time: doors open 6:00pm runs from 7:00pm to 9:40pm Where: Colorado Springs Historic City Auditorium 221 East Kiowa Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80903 Tickets: $25.00 The fire may have taken the ranch but it won't take our Western spirit. The Flying W Ranch is the proud host of the National Chuckwagon Jamboree this coming September. Join us and all the Chuckwagons within the association as we celebrate our 60th anniversary of Chuckwagon Dinners and Western Musical Entertainment at the National Historical Colorado Springs City Auditorium on Monday, September 24th and Tuesday, September 25th (located at 221 East Kiowa Street, Colorado Springs CO). The Chuckwagon Association of the West began over 50 years ago, when Russ and Marian Wolfe and several close friends started inviting tourists to their evening cattle roundups and serving them food at the Flying W Ranch in Colorado Springs. Invevitably, someone would pull out a guitar and sing old cowboy songs for the guests. Since then, there have been many “chuckwagon” style groups to spring up around the country. A small core of folks loyal to the original cattle drive spirit and the Association’s goal “to provide the highest level of quality and value in family entertainment and food” is still affiliated with the Flying W through the Chuckwagons of the West. Each year, the Chuckwagons of the West meet for a “jamboree”—a thank-you to loyal fans, and a time to swap stories and advice with other members. The Jamboree is held at a different Chuckwagon each year. Planning a tour? Company Picnic? Wedding? Reunion? or Graduation Dinner? Click here to recieve more information.
