   Glen Campbell, Ricochet To Headline 2009 Wild Bill Days

The Cowboy Fast Draw Championships, Wild West re-enactors, an Old West auction, world championship BBQ and two days of free concerts featuring country legends Ricochet and the legendary Glen Campbell are all on tap for the annual Wild Bill Hickok Days celebration June 19-21 in Historic Deadwood.

"There is literally something for everyone at this year's Wild Bill Hickok Days. We'll have the top BBQ chefs, the top gunslingers and top performers converging on Historic Deadwood, and we couldn't be more excited," said Sarah Anderson, Deadwood Chamber of Commerce event coordinator.

Wild Bill Hickok Days celebrates the life and death of Deadwood's most famous character with entertainment even Wild Bill himself would enjoy. The event begins on Friday, June 19, at 11 a.m. with the annual March of Dimes and First Gold Celebrity Shoot Out fundraiser at Ferguson Field, which is across from the First Gold Hotel complex.

Also on Friday, taste buds will be tantalized at Ferguson Field as the first annual Kansas City BBQ Society Cook-off begins. This event will feature some of the best BBQ masters in the area and from around the country as they compete for a great deal of prize money and bragging rights. The Cook-off takes place Friday through Sunday.

Later in the evening on Friday, bring your dancing shoes and enjoy the first of two nights of free concerts featuring Brock Finn, Moulten Jess and country music sensation Ricochet as they perform on Deadwood's Historic Main Street. Ricochet's hits include, "Blink Of An Eye," "What Do I Know," "Love Is Stronger Than Pride" and many more.

Saturday will feature the Cowboy Fast Draw Championships at Ferguson Field beginning at 9 a.m. This event features literally the fastest and most accurate gun slingers on earth today. The Kansas City BBQ event will continue at Ferguson Field and the Firearms and Old West Auction preview and show will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Deadwood Pavillion.

And to keep the celebration in high gear on Saturday night--and to help celebrate Deadwood's 20th Anniversary of gaming--the first major performer to play a free show on Main Street will be returning. Glen Campbell will return to Deadwood to headline this year's Wild Bill Days celebration.

This multi-Grammy winning artist will perform all of his hits including "Southern Nights," "Galveston," "True Grit" and "Rhinestone Cowboy," to name just a small sampling of Campbell's hits. Brock Finn and Jonathan Singleton and the Groove will open Saturday night's show, which begins at 5 p.m.

On Sunday, the finals of the Cowboy Fast Draw Championships and the Kansas City BBQ Cook-off will take place at Ferguson Field, and the Firearms and Old West Auction will take place at the Deadwood Pavilion beginning at 10 a.m.

"We are extremely excited to kick off the summer with so many great events planned for Wild Bill Days," Anderson said. "We are celebrating Deadwood's most famous character in a way we all feel he would approve--with a great big party."

   Archaeology Camp Registration

This summer the Adams Museum will again collaborate with the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission to host an archaeology camp series for local youth. During the week of June 8 -12, 2009, students entering grades 8-12 will have the opportunity to participate in an archaeology field school, led by professionals in the field. This session will incorporate the core archaeological principles explored in the camp sessions - why we conduct archaeology, the archaeological process and Deadwood history - but will give older students the opportunity to dig deeper. These students will lay the groundwork for the camp sessions by beginning the dig, researching the history of the site, examining artifacts uncovered at the site and keeping detailed logs of their progress. Additionally, these students will be invited to help with the two archaeology camp sessions for younger students. The cost is $75 per student for the week.

Children entering grades 3-7 have the opportunity to participate in archaeology camp - a week-long program where campers will conduct a real archaeological excavation led by professionals in the field, take daily hikes and have lessons on topics ranging in scope from historic preservation to mapping. Two sessions are available: June 15-19 or June 22-26, 2009. The cost is $40 per child for the week or $65 for two children in the same family.

For more information, please contact Anne Rogers, museum educator at 605-578-1928. Scholarships are available.

   South Dakota Acoustic Christmas To Say "Farewell"

All good things must come to an end- even really, really good things. Thus, the merry band of musicians known as "A South Dakota Acoustic Christmas" will make the 2008 holiday tour of the state's concert halls their last. "This has truly been a blessing for all of us over the years," says band leader Mike Connor. "We want to do a really spectacular grand finale show to connect with our old friends across South Dakota and thank them for their support."

The Acoustic Christmas concerts are a holiday tradition in South Dakota, and have raised over $1.2 million to support nonprofits in the state. The nine-piece band dishes up Christmas music in all kinds of forms: sacred, traditional, jazz, blues and folk. This year, the group will celebrate their beginning by bringing back special guest star, world-class fiddler Kenny Putnam, who toured with Acoustic Christmas for many years.

Acoustic Christmas will perform on Friday, December 12th at 7:00 p.m. in the Sturgis Community Center Theatre. Tickets are $15 and are available for purchase at Rockingtree Floral, Sturgis Chamber of Commerce, County Drug or Johnston's Hardware Hank. Please come and wish this wonderful group farewell!
