Gunfight at the OK Corral (What Really Happened)

Gunfight at the OK Corral, (What Really Happened) will be presented on Thursday, February 25, 2016, in the Madera Clubhouse Ballroom at 6:30 p.m.

Ticket price is $5 per person.

Analysis of the Wild West’s most iconic battle is coming to Quail Creek. For the first time, two experts are teaming to present the true story of the war between the Earp and Clanton factions. The 1881 Tombstone gunfight has been immortalized by books and the silver screen. Now you can get the lowdown on what led up to the deadly shootout and what happened afterward.

Thursday, February 25, Quail Creek’s own Scott Dyke, noted Wyatt Earp and Tombstone researcher, will unite with Bob Palmquist, a Tucson attorney who has been long regarded as an expert in the western history field. Bob’s studies of Tombstone cover a period of nearly 50 years.

Ike Clanton, the McLaurys, Ringo, Curly Bill, etc. will be there; so will the Earps, Doc Holliday and Big Nose Kate. Dyke said, “The real story is much more interesting than the movies. While entertaining, the many movies never got it right. Bob and I plan on doing that.”

Saddle up and enjoy an entertaining and informative history session about the West’s greatest gunfight. The first hour will be dedicated to the historical events; the second hour will have Dyke and Palmquist taking questions.

Tickets may be purchased at the Concierge Desk at the Madera Clubhouse. Ticketing is on a first come basis as seating may be limited.
