If ever there was a night for a building to shine, it was Saturday evening at the Pondera Shooting Sports Club (PSSC) Open House.
What began as a dream is now, arguably, the finest indoor small shooting building in the state.
It has expanded in scope and now supports 4-H shooting sports, Hunter Education, archery shooting, not to mention a wide array of meetings, a predator coyote calling seminar, league shooting, a women’s archery and trap league and shooting tournaments.
In case you missed it last week there are a couple of changes with Homecoming this week.
The Pep Rally will be at 2:40 p.m. on Friday, not Saturday morning as in the past.
The public is invited to attend the Pep Rally.
The crowning of the King and Queen will be announced at halftime of the Conrad-Cascade game which starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
The Homecoming King and Queen candidates are; Grant Grubb and Amber Stenson, senior candidates; Graham Grubb and Kara Bandow, junior candidates; Colter Knox and Taylor Johnson, sophomore candidates, and Calen King and Olivia Campbell, freshmen candidates.
