Well, no. In early September of 1897, just before the first Cheyenne Frontier Day, the CFD Committee asked the City for $250.00 in support of a new event to celebrate the frontier history of the town. The city council thought about the measure and rejected it on September 7. Apparently, some hasty discussions took place and the measure was approved on September 13, ten days before the first CFD! After this little hiccup, the relationship has lasted 122 years. If only the 1897 City Council could see the event now!
