Sheridan, WY – Weatherby, Inc announced a plan to move from Paso Robles, California to Sheridan, WY at SHOT 2018. Since that announcement Weatherby, Inc has been planning, building, and moving towards a Grand Opening of it’s brand new facility in Sheridan, WY. Weatherby, Inc. moved into the new space in March 2019, but will celebrate an official Grand Opening in June.
“California represents a rich history and an established legacy that I never want to forget or take for granted. Wyoming, on the other hand, now represents a bright and promising future for Weatherby. People often ask me why we made the move. Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin.”, says Adam Weatherby.
June 13th, 2019 will be the Grand Opening of Weatherby’s facility in Sheridan, WY and the company wants to invite everyone to the visitors center and participate in the official ribbon cutting. Events will be taking place from 9:00am - 2:00pm on Thursday June, 13th. Multiple auction items including two Mark V Gold Commemorative rifles with serial numbers WY000307 and WY000003, raffles, conservation group activities, live music, and facility viewing areas will all be part of the celebration. The visitor center will have historical documents, classic taxidermy, and opportunities to learn about Weatherby history.
“I am so grateful for Weatherby’s past and the rich heritage that began so many years ago in Southern California with my grandfather. I am also incredibly grateful for the state of Wyoming and the many others that helped get us to our new home.”, says Adam Weatherby.
Weatherby is now located on the North end of Sheridan at 1550 Yellowtail Dr.
