The Dazee Bristol Society
The Dazee Bristol Society is the CFD Old West Museum’s women’s auxiliary club and was created in the spirit of ambassadorship, creativity, willingness to help out, love of a good party, and bringing people together for a good cause. In 2009, the Dazee Bristol Society was formed to support the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum. The main objectives are to provide appetizers and assistance for museum events, help with mailings, and a willingness to help out and promote the museum in general by participation.
Remembered for her creative flair, Dazee Bristol was asked by the Cheyenne Frontier Days Committee to create four floats depicting scenes from Old Cheyenne for the first Frontier Days parade in 1927. With a theatrical flair, she selected and trained her square dancers for Hiram’s Dance Hall with “Hi” Davidson fiddling the tunes. Riders on the Vigilantes float accomplished “five lynching’s to the block” and gold seekers on the mining float poked fun at local investors who found only fool’s gold in the nearby hills. Gamblers and dance hall girls inhabited Hell’s Half Acre, an old-time bar with saw dust on the floor and a piano player thumping out Honky-tonk.
Dazee was known to host parties after the parade where gaiety and hilarity reigned. The make-believe miners, shady ladies, Indian maidens, and gamblers sang and danced as they shared tales of the morning’s parade ride. They adored Dazee. She presided over a buffet of fried chicken, mounds of potato salad, freshly baked rolls, corn on the cob and strawberry shortcake. The rich food was a testament to her cooking ability. Dazee’s love of a good time was infectious!
