In 2008, the Elgin Stampeders created the “Legends of the Elgin Stampede” to recognize, honor, and pay tribute to those individuals who have made significant contributions in maintaining, promoting, and supporting the Elgin Stampede organization, its community events, its facilities, and especially the success of the annual Elgin Stampede.
This organization has its own bylaws, selection criteria, and rules governing how each person is nominated, screened for eligibility, and inducted.
**The 2012 Legends Induction will be Wednesday, July 11th, 6pm at the Stampede Hall
