When Marty was in his early grade school years he would walk to his
grandmothers house after school everyday. She would give him a treat
and tell him stories about growing up in the Wild West. Delia rode in a
wagon across the largest county in Oklahoma called Osage from the
Vinita area to meet her husband Dale. Dale worked in the 101 Ranch Wild
West Show performing and training horses. Marty's grandmother also
told him stories about the Pawnee Bill Wild West Shows and her visits
with Will Rogers. One of her favorite sorties was about the unveiling of
the Pioneer Woman in 1930. She said Will had everyone rolling with
laughter when he commented about the Pioneer Woman having a girdle
on the prairie. After the unveiling of the statue Will and Delia had a picnic
together and she recalls him talking to her about the pickled watermelon
that was so popular. Delia received letters from Will over the years from
places he had visited around the world. One of the letters Marty recalls
her reading was about the Mississippi floods. Delia keep the letters at in
her dresser tied in a blue ribbon Marty recalls.
Marty has relative ties to the
legendary Will Rogers by way of his
great grandmother Delia
McSpadden. He would spend many
hours after school listening to
Delia's stories about his
grandfather who was a Wild West
show performer and the times she
spent with her cousin Will Rogers.

|Each year we pick a different theme. This year we chose the United States and a western
theme, so we contacted Tipton. His entertainers were skilled and very sociable. Our
guest loved being able to interact with the performers. Over the 15 years I have been
CEO we have never seen such a wonderful production. It was exciting and energetic and
memorable. I would recommend Tipton to anyone who was ever considering having a
gathering of any type. It was simple astonishing.

highlighting the women who organized,
managed, and performed in Wild West
shows. These skilled women toured the
world in the late 19th and early 20th
centuries, influencing millions with their
courage, determination, and
independence. The women of the Wild

expectations of what women were
capable of doing.
