Someone Screwed Up here at the Buffalo Chip, Sturgis.

The Buffalo Chip recently admitted that one of its staffers royally screwed up and announced the wrong on-sale date for 2024 passes. To (hopefully) make up for the mistake, the legendary Sturgis destination decided to have a little fun. When they sent out an email with the correct date, they also asked who you thought was responsible for the snafu and offered up a chance to win a free 2024 pass just for guessing.

Over 1300 people submitted a guess, and the answers were all over the board. Check out a few of the most entertaining (or just glaringly wrong) answers, along with the pass winner.

See the responses and pass winner!
