(Burris, Wyo.) – If Harleys, road rallies, cowboy activities, live music, great food, good people and scenic drives are your thing; this is the event for you. If you don’t have a motorcycle but want to participate in 2 days of fun, vintage cars, trucks and even mopeds are welcome too. There’s also a serious side to the weekend-a dollar from every meal purchased and proceeds from a rifle auction will be donated to help the folks in Moore, OK still trying to get their lives on track from the tornados that hit in late May.
Start the weekend off with a tour of Wyoming Whiskey in Kirby on Friday September 20th at 11a.m. and enjoy a scenic drive back through Wind River Canyon before checking in at the Burris Roadhouse & Trading Company at 4 p.m. Mix it up with cowboys and bikers from near and far, enjoy dinner, a live DJ and dancing as the kick off to the first annual “ Burris Roadhouse Goat Riders’ Road Rally”. Why “Goat Riders”? The official Burris Roadhouse logo includes a goat skull patterned after one found on the property when business owner Wes Wiginton purchased the land in 2012. It’s why ‘Goats’ will be a reoccurring theme throughout the event.
Saturday’s route is a 250 mile round trip loop that begins from Burris, WY at 9 a.m. and ends in Burris, WY around 4 p.m. Head west from Burris through Dubois and have lunch at Dornan’s in Moose before enjoying a scenic side loop through Moose and Wilson. Coming back, drive through downtown Jackson Hole before returning to Burris. Starting at 4 p.m. on Saturday, try your hand at goat roping, a lemon roll contest, washer pitching and a 3 man irrigation team contest at the Burris Roadhouse. Nearly famous for simple, down home Texas Barbque and side dishes including Wiginton’s signature Jalapeno poppers aptly named ‘Burris Goat Turds’, Saturday’s activities will also include a ‘Goat Turd Eating Contest’. According to Wiginton, “This is shaping up to be the finest redneck event Fremont County has ever seen”. Saturday night enjoy a live performance by the Lost Springs Band from Shoshoni and one heck of a special Barbque dinner. There’s also a live auction planned to win a new Marlin 30-06 rifle and Leupold scope to support our cowboy friends in Oklahoma.
Registration fees for the event are $35 per person and include the rally, a bona fide “Burris Roadhouse Goat Riders Road Rally” T-shirt and a chance to win a free tattoo!!!
