Claire Thompson, a freshman at Cheyenne’s East High, smiles after getting sprayed with mud during slack competition Thursday morning at Frontier Park. Thompson is part of a crew of local youth that help with the calves at Chute 9 during the roping events. “Frontier Days is definitely my favorite thing about living here. So many people come to visit, and I never get bored,” Thompson said.
