The 2012 WASDA annual summer meeting is just around the corner and I would like to take this opportunity to formally invite you to attend this year’s event in Cody, Wyoming!
Cody is truly a gem of the west located 52 miles from Yellowstone National Park’s east entrance. Founded by the iconic Colonel William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody in the mid 1890’s, Cody is home to beautiful sights, western culture, friendly people and a strong agricultural community. This historical western town is the perfect backdrop for the 2012 WASDA annual summer meeting.
During your time in Cody, you will enjoy a wide variety of activities. One such activity is a trip to Yellowstone National Park. You can’t be that close to the first national park without experiencing the majesty and beauty Yellowstone has to offer. Our trip to Yellowstone will expand beyond viewing popular tourist areas, having a deeper focus on some of the natural agricultural and environmental issues Wyoming deals with, in and around Yellowstone.
In addition, we will embark on tours highlighting some of the interesting agricultural operations in the region. Like years past, we hope to give you some eye opening experiences and perspectives of Wyoming agriculture. We also hope you will find some time to spend in the Buffalo Bill Historical Museum in Cody where you can learn more about one of the biggest and most famous figures in the old west.
We have many exciting activities, events and presentations in the works and are looking forward to you all coming to Cody, Wyoming July 16-19, 2012 for the 2012 WASDA annual summer meeting. I guarantee an enjoyable and interesting schedule lies ahead and I look forward to seeing you there!
