Each year, these folks bring a host of strange and wonderful objects to make their party one for the books, and it never fails that many guests leave some of that stuff behind for the Chip’s staff to discover. See what the cat dragged in this year to make staffers to scratch their heads in the 2018 Sturgis Buffalo Chip Lost And Found!
