The Vore Buffalo Jump Foundation Board
invites you to celebrate the return of the Vore projectile point collection

October 7, 2017

11 am: Annual meeting at the Buffalo Jump Saloon, Beulah, WY

12 pm: Luncheon and talks by Gene Gade and Charles Reher at the Buffalo Jump Saloon.

1:30 pm: Tours and viewing of the Vore projectile points at the Vore Site.

For the past 45 years, the projectile points excavated from the Vore Site sinkhole have been studied at the University of Wyoming. This year, the collection was returned to the VBJF Board. A new display has been created to showcase some of the approximately 200 points in the collection. The VBJF Board would like to invite our membership to view this new display and the entire collection at this special event. If you are unable to attend, watch our website for photographs and information.
