Our community, the Little Snake River Valley, puts on a gathering and barbeque each September.  We recognize that we’d better get together and visit before winter sets in.  Local businesses buy beef, lamb and pork at the Junior Livestock Auction at the county fair and donate it to the barbeque.  Food is set up, a band is hired, kids games are held, and everyone gathers at the local museum in Savery, Wyoming.  2011 marked the second annual Peruvian (mostly) soccer tournament.  In our area and neighboring communities, a lot of Peruvian men come through the H2A program to work on local ranches.  The tournament gives them a chance to visit with their countrymen and play their beloved soccer.  A trophy and cash prizes go to the winning teams.  This year, our guys, some of whom came straight down out of sheep camp, beat seven other teams to become the 2011 champions.  We get the privilege of displaying the traveling trophy in our cookhouse for (at least) a year.  You go, Osos de Ladder Ranch!
