Wickwire Winter Games - Saturday, February 5

January 11, 2022

Medicine-Lodge-HS-LogoRGB

Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site will host the first-ever “Wickwire Winter Games,” February 5, from 12 noon until 3 p.m.

The event will consist of 3 outdoor games and 1 indoor activity while telling the tale of Byron Wickwire’s adventure to the Yukon with 80 horses. 

Join us for an afternoon of fun and education.  Participate in the games, a craft and listen to the story of the man who homesteaded what is now Medicine Lodge State Park. Hot drinks will be provided by our friend’s group.

Create a team (no more than 4) with people of all ages and participate in any or all of the games.  To be eligible for the trophy, your team must compete in all the games. 

Games:

Sled Pull Relay – Each team must load 1 hay bale onto a sled, pull the sled a given distance, and unload the sled 4 times.  This can be completed individually or as a team.

Ice Rink “River” Relay – Each team must transport a given item across the ice rink 4 times.  Only one item may be carried at a time. 

Fire Starter – Each team must start and sustain a fire using either a striker or traditional wood-on-wood method.  The park will have flint strikers and rods available for your use, or you can bring your own. 

The winning team will be based on completion of the games and time.

 Activity and Story: 

This will occur indoors.  We will tell the story of Wickwire’s travels to the Yukon to sell horses. 

Build a Boat (Craft) – We will have popsicle sticks, glue and markers available for any that want to build a small boat.  

For more information, please contact the park at 307.469.2234. Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site is located at 4800 Road 52 near Hyattville.
