We Still Love It Here When First Dakota National Bank opened its doors for business along the Missouri River in 1872, South Dakota wasn’t even “a thing,” as we like to say. Well, it wasn’t a true state yet, but it was a land of opportunity for many families, farmers, and other settlers in the region. Today, one hundred fifty years later, First Dakota is still proud to be our state’s first bank. Our customers have shaped South Dakota into the remarkable place we call home. That’s why our 150th anniversary is a tribute to this great state and the people who make it so. Tim Weidenbach receiving his new pickup from First Dakota.

Atlatl Throwing At The Mammoth Site written by Dawn Geertsema & photos by Alana Snyder Hot Springs is home to an active paleontological dig site, where each new find adds to the history from over 26,000 years ago when The Mammoth Site was merely a sinkhole. So far, over 1,200 fossils have been unearthed at the site. “It's just so incredible that this piece of history is in South Dakota,” said 605’s Alana Snyder. “On top of being a museum, it's inspiring that it's still an active site that still has so much to discover.”

Visitors can get involved with various learning opportunities, including summer classes like the Jr. Paleontology Program and Family Dig Program, different STEAM education programs varying by age group, and other hands-on activities. “We have dig boxes that simulate a dig site where the kids get to dig through sediment and find replicas of mammoths and bear bones,” explained the director of education Seth Vandenberg. “While we do that we talk about why we look for fossils and what a fossil can tell us. That’s for kids ages 4 and up to grandparents in the family classes.”

The atlatl is a piece of wood that either has a hook or a socket that a dart will fit into.” Seth Vandenberg

Alana and Taylor Hanson headed out to try their hands at an Atlatl Throwing Class that is an ancient hunting method taught in the summer. While The Mammoth Site is too old to show any human activity, educators there work to teach people about the Ice Age. Around the world, there are different words for the hunting apparatus. At The Mammoth Site, they use “atlatl” to describe the wooden tool used to propel a large dart farther than a human could throw it themselves. “We find evidence of them in a variety of societies across the world,” said Vandenberg. “We talk about where we find atlatls in the world, how they’re used, and what evidence we have of animals hunted with atlatls.” Though Vandenberg says it’s difficult to be sure what animals may have been hunted with an atlatl, it was likely deer, mammoths, coyotes, and small game, like rabbits and birds. In other areas of the world, the prey varies based on what animals live in the region.

Taylor says she would have survived the Ice Age, as her years of softball experience made her throw more reminiscent of a talented hunter. Alana, on the other hand, says that she has less-than-impressive aim, and that she’d likely be eaten before she successfully hunts anything.

T H E S U M M E R I S S U E june 2022


The class begins by defining what an atlatl is before the students get to try using one themselves, aiming to hit a target. “With atlatls, it’s a natural extension of throwing a projectile by hand,” said Vandenberg. He says the device is similar to throwing a ball for a dog with a Chuckit! to launch the ball farther than the arm can throw. After placing the atlatl in your hand, the dart or spear is slid into it, ready to be sent flying from its slot. Then, it’s all about getting down the right timing and technique in releasing the dart, but not the atlatl itself.

22 |

“I think the most difficult part of the class was trying to keep a good aim and not give up,” said Taylor, adding that she wasn’t able to hit the target this time around. “Now I want to keep visiting and finally hit a target.” Struggling to hit the target isn’t uncommon. “So the motion itself feels fairly natural,” said Vandenberg. “Getting to the point where you know exactly where your dart is going to hit is where it becomes a challenge.” The course is offered to anyone aged 8 years or older.

also a safe time,” explained Vandenberg. “Basically, listen to the range officer and bring close-toed shoes to make sure you have your footing.”

To participate in atlatl throwing, everyone must meet the safety standards of the class.

Atlatls are actually still used today. While they have a large hobby following in Canada and Australia like the bow-and-arrow combo, Vandenberg says certain indigenous groups still use them in their traditional hunts.

“A big priority is always safety in that everyone is able to have a fun time, but

There haven’t been any atlatls found at The Mammoth Site. Our site is too old to show evidence of humans. It’s a learning tool to learn about the late Ice Age, which is why we teach it here.” Claire Scarborough

Aside from this class, there are many other things to explore, including the bonebed and the Ice Age Exhibit Hall. “We have a Siberian exhibit with two examples of baby mammoths, [named Lyuma and Dima], that were discovered mummified in permafrost in Siberia,” said public relations coordinator Claire Scarborough. Other exhibits display research projects from The Mammoth Site staff along with other researchers from around the world, explained Scarborough. “I've gone to The Mammoth Site since I was little with my grandparents, and it's such an experience,” said Alana. “It's always evolving and has something new for visitors. I can't wait to bring my child here one day.”

“Caring for our animals is truly a team effort,” said Louden Wright, the veterinarian at the Great Plains Zoo and Delbridge Museum of Natural History. “Our zookeepers work with the animals every day and report any changes in behavior, appetite, or appearance to the veterinary staff.” The Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls has qualified animal care through Wright and registered veterinary technician and registrar Janelle Brandt. “The veterinary team has also developed a preventive medicine program (PMP), which ensures that all of the animals under our care are routinely evaluated for any undetected medical issues,” said Wright.

Working with the zoo curator and lead zookeepers, Wright says the veterinary staff also develops and provides the best possible nutritious diets for each species. Feeding is often used as enrichment for the animals by encouraging foraging and natural feeding behaviors that may appear in the wild.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Getting a Kick Out of the Parks During warm weather (or what passes for it in South Dakota), you can often find me playing pick-up soccer in Lions Centennial Park on the east side of Sioux Falls. The park system around Sioux Falls is one of my favorite things about the city.

Hot Menu Items There’s a lot of good food around town, but some of my favorite flavors come from the Shahi Palace India Grill. The Butter Chicken or the Tikka Masala are both fantastic and are worth the post-lunch food coma they will induce. While delicious, I always stick to the most mild spiciness level; anything more than that is too much spice for me.

Obscure Brews Obscure Brewing Co. is one of my favorite spots in town. My favorite combination is the Tangerine Tempo, a citrus blonde ale, and their Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza.

I’m always excited to get outdoors for camping or hiking. The best place I’ve found for that near Sioux Falls is Palisades State Park. There are some gorgeous hikes along the pink quartzite cliffs lining Split Rock Creek, and it has some great campsites that are a short trip from town.

Summer, Sand, and Setting Ducks We have a recreational volleyball team made up of zoo employees and a few other friends that play weekly out at Netbinders Volleyball. We play the winter indoor and summer sand volleyball seasons as the aptly named Setting Ducks. We’re not what you would call “good,” but we have a lot of fun getting out on the court or sand to play.

Ruby Anniversary

Olde Towne Dinner Theatre TheatRE 40th

written by Dawn Geertsema & photos by Cailyn Patterson

When Olde Towne Dinner Theatre in Worthing opened in 1982, there was only enough space to entertain 15-20 guests for each performance. After some renovations over the years, artistic director John Boe says they serve crowds of about 100 now as they prepare to enter their next season: their ruby anniversary season. In the first week of June, their current theater season will end with the final three performances of Caught in the Net, a British farce by Ray Cooney.

This show follows a man who has two separate families that are seemingly oblivious to each other. As this takes place in the early days of the internet, the father didn’t know the net could be a problem for his secret lives with each family. “The daughter from one family and the son from the other meet up on the internet and decide they want to meet in person,” said Boe. The pair was intrigued by their uncanny familial similarities like last names and their taxi driver fathers.

“This is the last show of this season. We’ll start rehearsing for the next season in July and we’ll open at the beginning of September,” said Boe. “We’re kicking it off on June 11 with our 40th Anniversary Gala.” Attend the gala for a variety show, a Hegg Brothers performance, hors d'oeuvres, and more. Browse the silent auction and place your bids, and don’t forget to enter the raffle. When you buy one of the $100 raffle tickets, you enter for the chance to win a $4,000 travel voucher, according to Boe. Before the next season, about 20 kids get the opportunity to participate in the Children’s Theatre Camp to learn the basics of theater and put on a show. The camp is MondayFriday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. “This year we’re doing The Lion King Jr.,” said Boe. “We’ll spend the first part of the day teaching. Then we’ll get into the show and music.” At the end of the camp, the kids perform on June 24 at 6 p.m. and June 25 at 1 p.m. The rehearsals for the upcoming season will start soon after the camp.

When we open one show, we have a week before auditions for the next show. Auditions are roughly three weeks before we start rehearsals for the show.”

“We do everything in house,” said Boe. “Our head chef creates all the recipes. We’ve got soup, salad, dinner, and dessert.” For each performance of a show, the meal and dessert will be the same with a choice of protein. Then when a new show takes its place, so comes a new meal and dessert.

Boe says the actors dress up as women, pretending to be the daughters in an attempt to get the inheritance money. “Since the last time we did the show, people have been asking for us to do it again,” he said. “They just loved it.” The fourth and final show of the ruby season will be The Movie Game by Adam Hummel, one of Boe’s favorites. “It’s about a guy and a girl who love old movies, especially rom coms,” said Boe. Still living with his parents and without a reliable job, the man desires to get a grip on his life. “He hires a film crew to make a documentary of his life so he can see what he’s doing wrong,” said Boe. “It’s a lot of fun. It has some quirky characters in it.”

Let It Fly Sports Bar Written by Dawn Geertsema & Photos by Alana Snyder

Let It Fly Sports Bar opened in Sioux Falls in July of 2021 on the corner of 57th Street and Western. One of the best features of Let It Fly is the large patio space, which is perfect for enjoying a meal and a beer while watching the game. “Our patio is the most amazing experience to sit and watch sports, have drinks, feel the breeze, but be covered or under the sun if you want to be,” said general manager Mandie Wendt. “We’re thinking Monday through Friday anytime the weather is good we’ll have live music.” With over 20 beers on tap, the bar also has over 80 TVs to catch your favorite team. “Literally everywhere you look there’s a tv for any kind of sport—we have it all,” explained Wendt. That same variety extends to the menu, which has a wide array of dishes to choose from.

FOOD + DRINK

Start off with an appetizer like Fried Green Tomatoes, “Skinny” Sliders, Let It Fly Nachos, or even Gator Rolls made with alligator meat. “We have something for everybody from our amazing CharBuffed Wings to our Surf & Turf,” said Wendt. “We have amazing food here.” Choose from 12 different sauces or four dry rub options for your traditional or boneless wings. On the higher end, the Surf & Turf is a 6-ounce sirloin and six shrimp seared in garlic butter with veggies and mashed potatoes. “The pizza and the burgers are great, but we also have something for people who want something a little higher end like sirloin and walleye,” said Wendt. Try one of seven flavors or make your own pizza or flatbread.

“You get the feel that you’re in a fancier restaurant while you watch the games & enjoy the patio and people watch.”

“The reason people love patios is that they feel included with everything outside. There’s the beautiful water with the fountain. The way they keep up the landscaping is beautiful. You get a little bit of everything out there.”

Mandie Wendt

The half-pound burger lineup offers a handful of options from the LIF Mushroom & Swiss to the BBQ Pork. Each burger is served with your choice of side. “The Monte Cristo is a really popular item that came on our feature menu,” said Wendt, noting that the dish received a lot of love from guests. “We moved it to our full menu.” The sandwich is one the only ones like it in Sioux Falls with turkey, ham, and American cheese. After being deep fried, it’s sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with raspberry preserves for the classic sweet and savory combo. Popular drinks include fishbowls to share, the Grilled Pineapple, and the Let It Fly Margarita. Among fishbowl flavors are the Creamsicle Fishbowl, John Daly Fishbowl, Let It Fly Margarita Fishbowl, and Black Widow Fishbowl, which is made with black cherry lemonade vodka and black raspberry liqueur. “We have the Grilled Pineapple, which is a signature drink of ours,” said Wendt.

“Right now we have about 12 of ours and eight guest taps, but as we come out with more beer we keep knocking down guest taps,” said Carter. “We’ll probably always continue a few guest taps.” Wood accents and steel beams are strategically placed to amplify the contemporary design of the build that is inspired by the Deadwood Welcome Center. The taproom has high, industrial-style ceilings, a cozy fireplace, and doors opening out onto the patio. “We have a nice outdoor area with a covered patio and a grassy area for kids to run, play, and jump,” said Carter. And there’s plenty of room for furry friends. “We’re dog friendly, so people can bring their dogs,” said Carter.

But before this new building was even a thought, the owners of Sturgis Brewing Company started in 2014 as The Knuckle Brewing Company downtown in The Knuckle Saloon. “We opened in July of 2014, and in January of 2015, our Knucklehead Red got invited to do the Black Hills Beer Fest.” After winning gold in the amber division, they began distributing their product. In 2015, the demand was higher than the supply and they added two new fermenters. But it wasn’t enough. “In 2017 we ran out of beer,” said Carter. “We either were going to get big or quit distributing.” And then came Sturgis Brewing Company. At the new building, they still brew for The Knuckle, but they are now two separate entities. “When we moved up here, we tweaked our recipes a little bit simply because we had a new water filtration system,” said Carter. They now offer brews that are both visually clearer and smoother on the palate.

We decided to expand to keep up with demand.” Bryan Carter

Lloyd Core Values

1. Do the right thing 2. Build relationships for life 3. Solve it 4. Have fun

In June 1972, Craig and Pat Lloyd moved to Sioux Falls to manage Meadowland Apartments, a low-income community with 120 apartments.

While the couple hoped to build new homes for clients, Thorkelson says financing new homes was a challenge due to high interest rates.

“As Pat was doing the day-to-day property management and also working to build up the units under management, Craig decided to build their first home,” said Thorkelson. “That then turned into building multiple homes, and eventually they started buying and developing larger tracts of land to sell individual lots.”

“Their focus turned to building up the property management division, while adding residential real estate sales and a much greater focus on developing and building multi-family apartments, commercial offices, and retail,” said Thorkelson.

Lloyd Construction began in 1973.

In June of 2022, 50 years later, Lloyd offers architectural design, asset management, commercial real estate, construction, property management, and development.

“We wouldn’t be where we are today without the great people and relationships in our life. Building this business family around us has been a lifelong effort, one relationship at a time.” Craig Lloyd in his memoir, “Building Dreams”

“Lloyd’s success is due to a great economic environment, wonderful key relationships, talented and dedicated team members, and a lot of good luck,” explained Thorkelson. Craig and Pat launched the development division of the company in 1989, eventually working with national retailers to develop structures for businesses like Walmart, Menards, and Century Theatres in Sioux Falls. 2017 brought a mixed-use development, The Cascade at Falls Park, to uptown Sioux Falls. This development is home to businesses like Severance Brewing Co., La Luna Cafe, and Papa Woody’s. In 2021, the company welcomed 119 new employees, and as of May 2022, 66 more team members have been brought on to help achieve Lloyd’s goals. “Our goal is to improve the quality of life in the communities where we conduct business, remain family owned but not necessarily family managed, and create stable employment and real estate investments for all stakeholders for many generations to come,” said Thorkelson.

“Lloyd continues to grow with intentional planning and implementation by an amazingly talented group of people.” Chris Thorkelson From Lloyd Companies’s hometown of Sioux Falls to Des Moines, Rapid City, and more, the company continues to grow and thrive. Lloyd’s next big project in Sioux Falls is The Steel District, which broke ground in 2021. Like The Cascade, this will be a mixed-use development. The development will have a Canopy by Hilton hotel with retail and restaurant space alongside apartments, condos, and offices. In the upcoming years, Thorkelson plans to continue to grow with intentional planning. “Going forward, we will continue to identify and take calculated risks on opportunities where all stakeholders can be successful, remain good stewards of the communities where we conduct business, continue to hire great people, innovate, and build upon our reserves,” he said.

Steever House

Bed & Breakfast written by Dawn Geertsema photos by Emily Swan & Dawn Geertsema “We were both farm kids, but we were married in ‘92 and both had homes in Sioux Falls,” said John Steever, explaining that his wife Sara Steever missed her country roots. They bought five acres of land from John’s parents and Sara stumbled upon an old house near Gayville in 1994. The couple moved the 1908 Sears home 70 miles to their Lennox property just 10 miles from Sioux Falls. “When we decided to move a house as opposed to building, we were more appreciative of the architecture of old houses than what was available in newer homes,” said John. “Replicating that in new construction can be costly.”

At some point in the journey, Sara started throwing around the idea of running a bed and breakfast.

In June of 1997, they welcomed their first visitors into Steever House Bed & Breakfast with two open guest rooms.

“My response was that maybe we should stay at one first,” John said with a laugh. “We had both been involved in food service and had experience in the hospitality business, but we knew nothing of lodging.”

Now 25 years later, John still gets up early to put the coffee on and take his time making a hot meal for guests.

Over the next three years, they began remodeling to make space for overnight stays, ensuring each guest room and suite had its own bathroom.

Most mornings, guests are served combinations of fresh fruit, eggs, a pastry, and meat. Pastries can range from Banana Pecan Muffins to Dutch Babies, while meat may vary from bacon to ham to sausage depending on the day. “I try to respect what people want or need in their diets,” said John. “I ask about people’s dietary restrictions, allergies, or things they just don’t like. Most people just say anything is fine.” The food isn’t the only draw. Those who stay with the Steevers often enjoy the historic aspect of the home. “A lot of them are taken by the old house,” said John.

“Sara & I both had some appreciation for old materials & architecture.” John Steever “Some people enjoy this old, Queen Anne style Victorian home that was built in 1908. The architecture entices them.” Each room and suite is different with two of them having queen beds and the remaining three offering kings. Two of the options are suites that have jacuzzi tubs, showers, and a private seating area. The main floor of the house has the common areas to gather with tables and living space. The couple, who’ve been together for 30 years, enjoys meeting the variety of people who come to stay with them, and even offer up their yard for celebrations. “We have space available here indoors and outdoors. We have rented it for a number of different occasions,” said John. Inside offers space for smaller events like meetings, while outside has enough gathering space and parking for something larger. The largest wedding hosted on the property had about 200 people, according to John.

Working from home has been a dream for many workers, but for others, home doesn’t offer the most productive atmosphere. “I had been working at Avera as their director of facility development and was given the option to work remotely, which sounds great,” explained Jacob Bunde. “It was quickly evident that our now-4-year-old daughter had other plans for my productivity.” An idea began to form. Bunde is a licensed architect with LEED certification and AIA credentials who had never been interested in the concept of tiny living before. He hadn’t found many high quality builds.

Realizing he needed a small, functional space to work, he thought he could bring something new to the tiny living community with Outpost Adventures. So in the spring of 2021, he and his wife began building compact spaces for getaways, offices, and more. Their first build was finished in August that same year. “Outpost was a passion project of mine and opened my eyes to developing neighborhoods and communities in a different way,” explained Bunde. “Our design style is inspired by minimal, modern living. The idea is to immerse oneself in nature, in your surroundings.” Each Outpost is built to order and made of high quality, commercial-grade materials for improved efficiency, lower energy costs, and the ability to live green.

People might know me from…

the gym. I have been a member of many local fitness clubs, have competed in several sports, and am a tall guy. A 6’7” guy stands out.

My favorite way to spend leisure time is…

hunting. It’s a year round event for me. I enjoy preparing for the season by maintaining the land, cultivating food plots, and checking game cameras. My daughter has grown into being my helper, so we go out, fill the grain feeders, replace the SD cards, etc. We enjoy shed hunting in the spring so much so that our family dog is conditioned to find antlers. I just really enjoy being outdoors, taking in nature.

The best part of my Job Is...

getting my hands dirty. I’m able to complete the finishing details of all our builds, and it’s the most gratifying to see it all come together.

My favorite design elements to implement are... minimalist, modern touches. I am drawn to industrial textures, such as concrete, metal, and wood. You’ll find those incorporated in all my designs.

One build takes roughly…

two weeks to complete once materials are on site. As with most everyone else, our timeline is impacted greatly by the supply chain. I’ve been strategic in connecting with vendors that have been able to commit and expect this to remain a dynamic part of the process.

What I loved about putting together Outpost was…

creating something new with my wife. We compliment each other on strengths, so this was really a fun way to do something together.

Something we’re doing with our business right now that I’m excited about is…

designing a series that would facilitate living in the unit. The first design has a half bathroom. The second design includes a full bathroom and kitchen accommodations.

My favorite place to go for inspiration is…

outside. We built our home on our family acreage that was founded by my great grandparents in 1875, hence the original company name of Outpost 1875. I grew up there, am raising my family there, and have always been drawn home.

Someone local who I admire is…

605 Profile

Sara Rowland written by Dawn Geertsema & photos by Emily Swan “We are a full service gifting business specializing in gift design for corporate, events, client appreciation, special occasions and just ‘life,’” said Prairie & Pine owner Sara Rowland. “It’s a strategic and personalized way to recognize the people who help your business thrive.” Based out of Sioux Falls, Rowland works with companies like Pinnacle Productions, Click Rain, and Lemonly to create curated gift boxes that are the customized for customers. She also works on a smaller scale for celebrations. “Not everyone likes to shop for gifts, and many are last minute so that’s where I love to transform the whole gifting process to be stress free and just simple.” She takes care in selecting each product that goes into her gifts, choosing products from many small businesses.

5 Questions

with Rowland How long have you been running Prairie & Pine. I had just sold my clothing store business in Brookings after a 15-year run. When we moved to Sioux Falls, I took some time off to just reflect and ignite a new vision for what was next in my entrepreneurial journey. Then, COVID. Fast forward to a drive that my husband and I went on where he asked me point blank, “What are you truly passionate about?” True story. I blurted out, “I just want to create gifts for people.” What are some of your favorite products? I am all about collaboration, and I know how hard the small batch makers work to grow their business. If I can be a small part of that bigger dream for them, then I’m interested. Sharing that with my clients makes them feel connected to more than just “stuff ” in a box, and that’s what stands out as unique.

Are you the type of gift Giver that goes over the Top on holidays? A resounding yes! I love taking the time to search out each person’s interests, and I listen during conversations to get any “hints” I can. Then I spend time sourcing that perfect, thoughtful gift. Why should people use your services? You can relax knowing that the stress of finding that perfect gift is off your shoulders. I value the creative process to find that memorable gifting solution for my clients. I give a lot of attention to the details in all my gift designs because the end result is what I want my clients to love and be proud of. What’s the best part of your job? What drives me is making gifts memorable. I love finding that perfect gift for whatever the occasion. I love creating boxes to the best of my ability. When a client chooses to work with me, I immediately start on their project. I can honestly say that it truly motivates me to where I cannot stop thinking about it.
