Green River Cowboys won't perform the bank robbery this year
Eight year tradition will have hiatus in 2009. Green River Cowboys will be back in 2010, however
By Barry Jones
I have had several inquiries as to whether the Green River Cowboys are doing the bank robbery. The Green River Cowboys are not performing the Jesse James Bank Robbery Saturday.
We have done the bank robbery for the past 8 years or so and have had a lot of fun doing it. Charles Grimsley has been a pleasure to deal with.
The reasons why are complicated and I don't need to go into them in this public forum but I will state the following.
Six weeks to 2 months ago when Charles Grimsley made contact with us, the Cowboys had already decided not to provide the bank robbery and we let him know at that time. Charles made every attempt possible to help reconcile situational differences that had occurred.
Charles is to be commended. He did all he could have done. Recently, a plan has been laid for the next several years where the Green River Cowboys will be performing the bank robbery. Of this, I am very happy and excited about.
I have seen that all advertising for the bank robbery has continued. I don't know why and haven't asked why. They may have found other horseman to perform the robbery. If they have, I hope the performers the best. This activity is hazardous for horse and rider.
I count us lucky to have completed this performance without injury to horse, rider or public for the last 8 years or so. This is a pretty good stunt.
I hope everyone the best and we'll see you on the square in 2010.
for the Green River Cowboys
