27 local teams participated in Wind River Rez Boyz 3×3 last weekend

    The Wind River Rez Boyz Basketball group planned a 3×3 Coed Basketball Tournament during the annual Eastern Shoshone Indian Days Powwow that happened the weekend of June 23 through June 25 in Fort Washakie. 

    On a nice sunny, crisp Saturday morning, June 24, by 7 am, all the volunteers were on site getting baskets together and marking out the courts. The registration table was ready with music filling the air, patiently awaiting the arrival of a total of 27 local teams ranging from ages 3 to 18.

    “It was a great turnout, and a lot of kids came out to ball it up and enjoy time with their friends and families,” organizers shared.


    Concessions were available by the team Wind River Rez Boyz, and some delicious BBQ from new local business Warm Valley Smokehouse, LLC.

    “Thank you for coming out and supporting our event and promoting your business. Always delicious food! Keep a lookout for a new FB Page.” 

    “We would like to thank all our sponsors- Eastern Shoshone SBC, E.S. Housing Authority, Shoshone Credit, Shoshone Rose Hotel and Casino, and Shoshone Tribal Service Station. Without all of you, this would not have been possible. Your support is greatly appreciated.”

    It has been years, pre-covid, since a 3×3 has been held during this time of year. The group would like to hopefully make this an annual event for the youth and possibly divisions for adult men and women. They will start the planning process later this year in hopes of making this event bigger and better each and every year.
