Gunfight at the OK Corral, (What Really Happened) will be presented Thursday, February 25, 2016, in the Madera Clubhouse Ballroom at 6:30 p.m. Ticket price is $5 per person.
An analysis of the most seminal event of the Old West will be presented February 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Madera Clubhouse in Quail Creek. Open to the public, this topic will be covered by two internationally known experts. Scott Dyke, local resident and Green Valley news columnist (Meandering the Mesquite), has an extensive background researching the Tombstone story and the history of Wyatt Earp. He has contributed articles to Wild West magazine, the Tombstone Epitaph national publication and American Cowboy magazine, to name just a few.
Robert Palmquist, a Tucson lawyer who specializes in Indian Law, has a 40 year record of study of the Old West and most particularly the Earps and the gunfight. He often is a scheduled speaker for many western history conferences and has written countless articles on the subject. Both men will present their version of the events leading up to the confrontation between the Earp faction and the Clanton group and the surprising aftermath.
“The movies are entertaining,” Dyke commented, “but they are definitely inaccurate. The real story is better.”
Tickets may be purchased at the front desk of the Madera Clubhouse in Quail Creek. Ticket price is only $5. Directly following the presentation there will be an audience participation in the form of questions and answers. Saddle up and get your tickets early as there is limited seating.
