Editor's Note:  Apparently, Pawnee Bill started out his career with Wild Bill but it took a turn.  Still, I  would have loved to see it.

So, it seems the Woodwards were very consistent with their reunions each year but of the three we've heard of so far, Allen has only gone to one.  Maybe they weren't his thing.
