About the Wranglers

The Wranglers Inc. is a support group for the Greeley Stampede. The Wrangler organization started out as a handful of members in 1977 and currently has more than 300 active members.
The Wrangler organization is always looking for hard working individuals to help produce the Greeley Stampede. Wranglers must be 18 years of age, be willing to volunteer at least a few hours during Northern Colorado's largest event and be ready to become a part of the Wrangler family.
Members do not have to have a "country" background or livestock experience. In fact, rodeo is only one of the many areas that members volunteer to work. Wranglers help with security, parades, concessions, parking and night shows just to name a few of the areas. There is just about something for everyone.

Each year the Greeley Stampede’s volunteer group the Wranglers honor a volunteer that has demonstrated exceptional dedication and outstanding service to be named Top Hand of the Year. This year, the Top Hand of the Year was awarded to Sharon Carbaugh.

With more than 250 members, the Wranglers are in charge of putting on one of the region’s largest and most recognizable western celebration. The group oversees everything that is involved with the Stampede including security, concessions, and the parade to name a few.

Sharon has undeniably been an asset to the Wranglers over the years with more than one hundred volunteer hours at the Stampede last year alone. A volunteer with the Wranglers for 16 years, Sharon has done it all including redesigning the Greeley Stampede’s mascots, Bucky and Bertha, outfits.

The Wranglers recognized Sharon as Top Hand of the Year during the annual Christmas party after being selected by a panel of peers. The Top Hand of the Year award is given to a Wrangler after each group selects a Wrangler of the Year for their respected area. Sharon was nominated from the Parades committee. Other Wranglers that were recognized include:
