Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Gets Weird in 2016

Tuesday February 16, 2015

Good Morning!

We’ve been on the edge before, and we like taking the plunge because, frankly, predictable is boring. Nobody shows up at the Buffalo Chip expecting to nestle into a hammock and read a book. We’re all about extraordinarily mad fun. Over the years, Chipsters have partied with some of the zaniest comedians in history, like Sam Kinison, Peewee Herman and Cheech & Chong.

Judge’s Ruling Clears the Road for Fort Meade Way Construction

Buffalo Chip, SD (November 23, 2015) – Circuit Judge Jerome Eckrich today denied an application for a Writ of Mandamus filed by a group opposing completion of Fort Meade Way. The Meade County road project offers an alternative route between I-90 Exit 37 and Highways 34 and 79, connecting Fort Meade Veterans Hospital, Bear Butte, and the rally campgrounds and concert venues east of Sturgis to I-90. The judge’s ruling kills the Meade County Taxpayers for Responsible Government’s efforts to force the County Commission to pass an ordinance outlawing the project, and it allows the Commission to award a construction bid. Judge Eckrich explained the denial stating the proposed ordinance would have allowed “the use of a person’s property to be held hostage by the will and whims of neighboring landowners without adherence or application of any standards or guidelines (and) is repugnant to the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
