A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame for an exhibit that features a Basin Electric employee.
The exhibit honors Steve Tomac, Basin Electric senior legislative representative, for his career as a nationally renowned Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association rodeo clown and bullfighter. Basin Electric is sponsoring the exhibit.
The ceremony will take place at the Center of Western Heritage & Cultures May 2, at 5:30 p.m. MT, in Medora, ND.
Tomac, who ranches near St. Anthony, ND, was inducted into the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2008. He started his career as a rodeo clown and bullfighter in 1971, and made his final appearance in 2005 at the Mandan Rodeo Days celebration. He received many awards and recognitions, and his barrel is now on display at the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.
The ceremony will open the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame’s 2015 summer season. The event will also include a ribbon-cutting for an exhibit honoring Wayne Herman, 1992 PRCA world bareback riding champion, an appearance by the 1982 PRCA world bull riding champion Charlie Sampson of Cave Creek, AZ, a new Cowboy & Indian art show, updated Native American displays, a military veterans memorial, western musical entertainment, and the official debut of the new I.
