Registration Open for Wyoming Rendezvous Tour Sept. 15-18
August 29, 2011 — Registrations are now being accepted for the 13th annual Wyoming Rendezvous Tour. Deadline is Wednesday, Sept. 7.
The Wyoming Rendezvous Tour provides University of Wyoming faculty with an opportunity to visit a region of Wyoming at no cost and to gain an appreciation for the state's geography, cultures and economy. Participants are typically faculty members who are relatively new to UW, but the tour is open to veteran faculty members as well. Residents and community and state leaders have an opportunity to meet and become better acquainted with UW personnel and to share personal professional interests.
Most stops on the agenda include visits to high schools, local businesses and meetings with local business leaders, UW trustees and local legislators.
This fall's tour is Thursday, Sept. 15, with a departure from campus at 1 p.m.; the return date is Sunday, Sept. 18, at approximately 1 p.m. Overnight stays are in Buffalo, Sheridan and Casper.
Among the highlights of this year's tour will be visits to the historic TA Ranch, site of the famous Johnson County War (range war); Buffalo High School and breakfast with school administrators/student leaders; Sheridan Community College, with lunch provided by culinary students; the historic King's Ropes facility and old west museum; UW's Research and Extension Center (horticulture-vineyard/crop projects); Butch Cassidy/Sundance Kid's Hole in the Wall hideout; UW/CC Center in Casper; and the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center.
The tour is open to faculty members and spouses. All meals and hotel accommodations will be provided by UW.
To register or for more information, contact Milton D. Ontiveroz, Institutional Communications, phone 766-6709, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
