Greetings Deadwood fans!
Can you believe that we are starting at October next week?! The Deadwood Jam was last weekend, and rain again struck. But the bands were great and the crowd braved the elements and got an awesome show. This past weekend was absolutely beautiful. And our next event OKTOBERFEST is just around the corner.
I’ve also found a new favorite slot machine – Butterfly 7s. I’ve always preferred the machines like this with a few reels with 7s, and it’s a 9 line penny machine so I can’t complain. Most places in town have the machine or one similar. I’ve also been playing 4-card poker, but I can’t say that it’s my new favorite game! It is a lot of fun, though!

Ok, so OKTOBERFEST – want to get a team together for the beer barrel games? Or do you think you have the fastest Wiener Dog around? Call the Chamber 1-800-999-1876 for more information!

Hello everyone! Wow, Labor Day is past and it’s DEADWOOD JAM weekend. I’m not sure where the summer went! Sorry that the blog hasn’t been update for a couple weeks … things have been crazy (in a good way!) in Deadwood. Kool Deadwood Nites was a grand success (we had over 600 cars register) and Davy Jones and Ron Dante played great shows to big crowds on Main Street.

Now we are on to the Jam — starting in about 7 hours! A great line-up, (www.deadwoodjam.com) and I’m looking forward to checking out the show!

Hope everyone is doing well in cyberland!
