‘Super’ Chuckwagon Days

Joy Ufford photos Marj Guio is honored as the 2020 Chuckwagon Days Grand Marshal, riding in the rodeo and parade.

Big Piney and Marbleton

put together an excellent Chuckwagon

Days celebration with a parade

of “Superheroes” – and every event was

superbly managed. From the very successful

“drive-in” evening rodeo on July

3 to the fireworks at dusk on the Fourth,

everyone pitched in to make the annual

celebration as safe – and fun – as possible.

Grand Marshal Marj Guio was honored

at the rodeo on Friday and led the parade

on Saturday. Others recognized and

honored were Ranch Woman of the Year

Ann Barney and the everyday “superheroes”

that help make life entertaining and

interesting throughout Sublette County.

Almost 200 people came to the LDS

Church’s annual pancake breakfast at the

Big Piney Rec Center and at least 48 bedecked

and flagged floats lined up at EOG

Resources to pass by hundreds of spectators

and neighbors through Big Piney.

Businesses provided plenty to eat and

drink, with the annual free community

barbecue put on hold this year.

Big Piney cheerleaders sponsored a

popular youth fishing derby at the Marbleton

Community Pond to raise money

for uniforms and other expenses. After

that, locals hosted the Freedom Rally at

the Rec Center to fill in for the canceled

street dance and hundreds waited until

dark to watch spectacular fireworks from

the Marbleton hill.
