'SOCIAL DISTANCE RUNNER' EVENT replaces BUFFALO STAMPEDE
Out of respect for local and national recommendations for social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of the duration thereof, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the physical aspect of the 18th Annual Durham Ranch Buffalo Stampede this year.
For the safety of our participants and those close to them, we will instead hold a “virtual” event that allows local people and organizations to remain involved. Our mission this year is to raise direct funds for organizations who are struggling to meet the needs of the people of northeast Wyoming during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because we are in a social distancing situation, we are creating special 2020 commemorative 18th Annual Durham Ranch Buffalo Stampede “Social Distance Runner” T-shirt.
By completing the 2020 registration form and sending $15 you can receive a commemorative T-Shirt to remember the 18th annual – COVID 19 – 2020 virtual social distancing Run/Walk event (18-19-20 time in our lives). If you “round up” your donation to $20 or more, the PRECorp Foundation will contribute the difference to local charities who have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This COVID-19 pandemic will leave a lasting impact on our memories and nothing could be more appropriate than a special collector’s edition T-shirt to show your support for our local community relief charities.
The benefit banquet for the Powder River Energy Apprentice Lineman Scholarship Program scheduled for Saturday, April 18, at Gillette’s Cam-Plex Energy Hall is POSTPONED. The event will be held next year on April 17, 2021.
HOWEVER, the raffle for the Ranger 2000 Side-by-side is still happening. Once at 150 tickets are sold, the drawing will be held later in the summer.
Call 1-800-442-3630 for more information on how to purchase tickets or make a donation.
Our linemen are an important asset to the communities we serve and an integral part of our workforce. They are some of the unsung first responders in times of disaster, working in all conditions to restore power, maintain the electrical distribution system, and so much more.
As linemen retire, there’s a huge gap left behind. To fill those jobs, it’s important to help local students go to schools where they can learn aspects of the trade. They can then return to their communities and contribute as lineman and citizens.
