MAVERICK CLUB HISTORY
In 1922, the maverick Club was organized by 50 prominent citizens of Cimarron. The purpose of the club involved social, civic and educational objectives. They used the term "Maverick" to denote the group of "strays" who felt they did not fit the mold of the typical service groups in the area. Besides, they weren't sure if they could be branded by others' rules. There were no membership dues, and once a man joined, he was a Maverick for life.
On July 4, 1923, the newly formed club sponsored its first rodeo for the community. It has become an annual event held continuously for more than seven decades. The Maverick Club also participates in charitable activities and hosts an annual Ladies Night Dinner and Dance for the wives and girlfriends of Maverick Club members.
