Welcome bikers, to DEADWOOD! The Sturgis Rally is just a few days away … Deadwood is bustling with activities, and entertainment abounds.
Days of ’76 was held last weekend and it was a great crowd and a great rodeo. Thanks to everyone who came to visit!
After the Rally, we have a week to take a breath, and then it’s on to one of our biggest events – Kool Deadwood Nites! Davy Jones of the Monkees and Ron Dante of the Archies will be playing FREE concerts on Main Street, and they are sure to be crowd favorites.

Oh, and as for Webcams — our local Internet provider had a major outage earlier this week, so it knocked our two Webcams out of commission. BUT we do have one other camera on the site, so please take a look and THANK YOU FOR BEING PATIENT. We have had much trouble with the cameras this year, and we apologize. Sometimes technology can be a real pain in the…Webcam.
Have a great week!

Roulette! The game of numbers, red, black and the pesky green, is now in play in Historic Deadwood! Roulette machines are now in at least two casinos in Deadwood – Cadillac Jacks and the Silverado; the game is real, only there is no dealer. A puff of air gets the ball rolling around the wheel, and bets are as low as $1. Whether your a red or black gambler, or want to throw $100 on one number in hopes of hitting the big one, this new game in Deadwood is exciting.
Hope the summer is going well for everyone! See you in Deadwood…
Remember – Days of ’76 Rodeos and Parades July 21-25; and Kool Deadwood Nites with Davy Jones of the Monkees and Ron Dante of the Archies (FREE CONCERTS!) August 20-23, 2009.
