The Wyoming Cowboys are invitational bound! Check out the details on the upcoming game THIS Wednesday, March 14, vs. North Dakota State at the AA…

From the Cowboy Joe Club:  What a season Coach Shyatt and the seniors put together this year!   After achieving a 20-11 record, the Cowboys were able to clinch one of only 16 spots in the 2012 College Basketball Invitational (CBI).  This year’s field is stacked with high profile participants such as 2010 and 2011 national runner up Butler, Oregon State and Washington State out of the Pac 12, Pittsburgh out of the Big East, and out of the Ivy League, Princeton and Penn!  For the Cowboys, the tournament starts this Wednesday (March 14) at 7pm with a home game vs North Dakota State.  Along with the game, we will be hosting a very special halftime show honoring Kenny Sailors on his induction into the College Basketball Hall of Fame!

We encourage all of our fans not only to attend the game but to bring your friends to support our cowboys.  If you’re not able to attend the game this Wednesday we ask for your consideration in showing your support of Head Coach Larry Shyatt and the Cowboys by purchasing a ticket to the game.

The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce has received quite a recognition! Read on for more information…

From the Jackson Hole Chamber:  The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce received notification that it has received a Four Star Accreditation by the US Chamber of Commerce.  This places the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce in the top 2% of 6,936 chambers of commerce in the United States.  The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is the only accredited chamber of commerce in Wyoming and part of an elite group of 152 chambers of commerce nationwide that have been validated by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Accreditation Program as “having solid programs, demonstrating clear organizational procedures, and as being a catalyst for positive action in the community.”

The US Chamber of Commerce states that “The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce has demonstrated a good track record of operating a successful chamber and achieving desirable results for its members.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is proud to accredit the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce with our 4-Star designation.  Congratulations on this remarkable achievement!”  The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce improved upon its Three Star Accreditation in 2006.  Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tim O’Donoghue states:  “Since 2006, we have worked at continuous improvement of our member services, organizational capabilities and performance, and effectiveness at championing the interests of local businesses, enhancing their prosperity, strengthening the economic climate of Teton County, and being an active contributor to the interests of business in the State of Wyoming.  We have received this accreditation and recognition through a rigorous process conducted by a panel of industry experts and leaders.  While we may never fully meet the accreditation criteria of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce because of our non-partisan, non-endorsement of political candidates, we are pleased to have received this accreditation and high-level recognition of our work and organization.  I also believe our accreditation is a reflection of the excellence present in our business and overall community.”

For more information on the Accreditation of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, please contact Tim O’Donoghue at (307) 733-3316 or timo@jacksonholechamber.com.

Congratulations to everyone — best of luck to Cowboy Bball this week — GO WYO!
