 GBC Members – Are you ready To Get WYO’D? 

Sheridan WYO Rodeo July 10-13, 2019 

The intent of the Gold Buckle Club is to involve a group of individuals who support the Sheridan WYO Rodeo. One of the main goals of the club is to create sound financial support that is needed for the future growth of the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, and we are now recognized as an Official Sponsor of the Sheridan WYO Rodeo.

The Gold Buckle Club is at full membership with 250 current members.

Please read through this information thoroughly to make your experience in the GBC Hospitality Room the best ever! 


VIP parking is available only at the south entrance to the Sheridan County Fairgrounds on Victoria Street. Please display your parking pass from your rearview mirror. VIP parking opens at 4:00 PM each day; the VIP Room opens at 5:00. 


Doors open at 5:00 – PLEASE do not arrive earlier than 5:00; the doors will remain locked until 5:00. Enter the Exhibit Hall from the south entrance only. Please present yourselves to the check-in table according to your buckle number. Here, your membership will be validated, a wrist band will be secured and you may pay for children and guests. 

YOU WILL NOT FIND WRISTBANDS IN YOUR MAILBOXES — they will be secured at the door each night by a check-in person as you enter the GBC. If members wish to exercise their right to pay for two guests each night, then the member MUST be present with their guests at the door to greet them and pay their guests’ fees. 


Dinner will be served from 5:00–8:00 PM each night. We encourage you to eat as soon as you arrive, and to be aware that dinner service will end promptly at 8:00. Light snacks will be served after the rodeo performance each night. 

GBC Rodeo Tickets: 

GBC tickets are NOT included with your membership. If you have purchased tickets for the GBC grandstands please proceed to the north end of the Exhibit Hall to have your GBC tickets scanned and hands marked with a stamp. This should prevent the bottle-necking situation at the gate when attempting to cross the track for the Indian Relay Races. Please give yourselves time to get to the GBC seating before the relay action begins! There will be NO standing on or use of the elevated bridge over the track during the Indian Relay Races. Friends of the Rodeo Supporting the Community 

Family Night: 

Wednesday night will once again be Family Night. Members may bring their own children (age 20 and under) into the GBC at no charge on Family Night only. If a member brings guest children and adults on Family Night, the Guest Policy applies to anyone other than the member’s own children-refer to following paragraph. On Family Night children are welcome and encouraged to return to the GBC for dancing and fun with their parents following the rodeo until last call. 

Guest Policy: 

Each member is allowed to host 2 adult guests each night: $100.00/guest/night Wednesday & Thursday and $125.00/guest/night Friday & Saturday. Payment for VIP guests will be handled at the check-in table and guest fees MUST be paid upon entrance. The GBC accepts cash or personal checks, but NOT credit cards. You MUST arrive with or greet your guests at the check-in table, or they will not be allowed to enter. 

Thursday thru Saturday children (under the age of 21) of GBC members are welcome and encouraged to attend the Sheridan WYO Rodeo and GBC with their parents from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Each child 0-5 will be free of charge; children age 6-12 will be $10.00; age 13-20 will be $20.00. Children under age 21 do not apply toward the 2-guest limit. Any family members or guests 21 years and older will be considered a GBC Member Guest – refer to preceding paragraph. 

We ask all members to keep their children supervised at all times when you are in the GBC. At 10:00 PM Thursday thru Saturday, please respect all members and kindly see that your children under age 21 depart the GBC. 

Membership-sharing Process: 

GBC members who do not plan to attend the GBC Hospitality Room may transfer their benefits to two other people to enjoy. However, the non-members MAY NOT bring paying guests into the GBC. In other words, the privilege of bringing guests into the GBC is reserved exclusively for GBC members. In addition, if someone other than yourself will be enjoying your benefits for the evening, we ask that you contact GBC Secretary Vicki Jorgenson ahead of time – NO LATER THAN 12:00 NOON ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT – to let her know who will be attending in your absence. The Member must reach Vicki at 307-751-4215 or, and advise of the Member’s name/Buckle Number and guests. Friends of the Rodeo Supporting the Community

The intent of the Gold Buckle Club is to involve a limited group of individuals who support the Sheridan WYO Rodeo and want to become a “Friends of the Rodeo, Supporting the Community.” One of the main goals of the club is to create sound financial support that is needed for the future growth of the WYO Rodeo.

One of the priorities of the club will be providing additional seating capacity at the Rodeo. Whether additional seating at the existing fairgrounds or new fairgrounds, the GBC will have priority seating on any available seats during the WYO Rodeo. The varied backgrounds of the clubs members will allow us to obtain valuable input as well as create lasting friendships with a common cause. Due to the fact that prime seating and most general admission available in the grandstands is completely sold out, rodeo tickets are not included in the Gold Buckle Club package at this time.

Current membership initial dues are $2,000.00 and subsequent dues are $1,000.00 annually.

Your membership will include one custom designed and individually numbered custom made belt buckle by Montana Silversmiths and one custom designed pendant.

You will be invited as our guests to all special events sponsored for “Friends of the Rodeo”. These events will be exclusively for GBC members, upper level sponsors and invited dignitaries.

We are now at full membership with 250 current members. We are now recognized as an Official Sponsor of the Sheridan WYO Rodeo. The Gold Buckle Club membership is currently limited to 250 active members but we do have a waiting list started for new members and encourage you to apply for this opportunity.
