The Oilfield Ironmen Brotherhood – Big Bear Chapter shared gratitude to those who made the event possible:

Would like to extend a thank you for donations from folks like Dave, Tony Luoma, Diedrich Kurkowski, Karlee Zach. We also received donations from a few motorcycles traveling through town from Colorado and Florida, as they enjoyed our beautiful state. Carrol Septic Services donated two restrooms, which were greatly appreciated. Thank you! We would also like to recognize our Oilfield Ironmen – Banded Iron Chapter, and their family and friends, who drove from Casper to support and contribute to the event.


They are looking forward to planning another event next summer with the community.
