The cowboy spirit lives on in western North Dakota and at the Medora Musical, where a tribute to the original Six Pack is part of this year's show. Above, Burning Hills Singers from left, Kevin Korczynski, Jonathan Woodruff, musical host Chet Wollan, Ken Quiricone, Gerry Williams, Ben Massouras and Tryton Landseidel raise hats in a tribute to the "amazing people who saw their future in these Badlands." Rodeo cowboys recognized in the original Six Pack were Tom Tescher, Duane Howard, Dean Armstrong, Joe Chase, Jim Tescher and Alvin Nelson, all of whom are in the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame. Also shown in back are Burning Hills Singers Candice Lively Wollan, left, and Taylor Leet. Leet and Landseidel are from Bismarck. The 55th Medora Musical continues with nightly performances through Sept. 7 in the Burning Hills Amphitheatre. The theme of this year's musical is "Be Legendary," modeled after the state of North Dakota's new motto. "Attendance has been great this year; we are on track to outdo the last couple of years," spokeswoman Kaelee Knoell said. Rainy weather in June and July caused some rainouts, "but our attendance numbers are still in line with the goals we have set for the year," Knoell said. The musical did not release specific attendance numbers. For more photographs and a video of the musical and Medora Gospel Brunch go to www.bismarcktribune.com.
