Cheyenne Frontier Days - Pancake Breakfast

A couple of days ago we got up early and went to the Pancake Breakfast that is held during the Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD).  We had heard from a number of people that it were going to be a lot of people, that it was interesting, that the food was good and that it was definitely worth attending.

It was a nice day and we were there a little after 7:00 AM on a Monday morning.
The line was so long we had to catch it going the wrong way.  It doubled back around and ended up in front of the Train Depot.
Along the way - we met some interesting characters
And in about 10 minutes we were up near the front where they were making pancakes.

It was quite a sight- I did a retake and these pancake flippers were tossing them to the catchers who were caring them over to the serving area.
Can you see a couple of them flying through the air?

And then we saw the stacks of pancakes.
Hot, steaming pancakes!

And ham!
They gave everyone two slices of ham.  And these were not skimpy, thin pieces - they were good sized!
We found a place to sit and ate away
After we were finished, we looked around and saw some interesting folks

Like some Rodeo Queens
I wanted to go back over to the 'chuck wagon to see if I could get a better action shot of those flying pancakes
And a few minutes later a guy next to me said, "I want to introduce you to the governor of Wyoming".
Before I knew it he said, "This is governor Matt Meade".  We had a good long chat and then asked for a picture.
Not surprisingly, he was happy to oblige.

The next time someone mentions "Pancake Breakfast" - I will probably think of this one.  It was certainly one to remember…

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
