The 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days General Committee has dedicated this year’s Cattle Drive to the memory of Buddy Hirsig.
Buddy loved rodeo and Cheyenne Frontier Days in particular. Buddy took over as Arena Director for Cheyenne Frontier Days in 1958 after his father had served in that role, and he joined the HEELS organization that same year. Buddy volunteered on the Rodeo (formerly Contestants) Committee for 60 years.
“The Hirsig family has been involved with CFD since the beginning. We are proud to honor Buddy’s memory and involvement in this event that is near and dear to all of our hearts,” said General Chairman Jimmy Dean Siler.
