People who come to the Pondera Shooting Sports Grand Opening will enjoy good food, have a chance to win fantastic door prizes and get the opportunity to bid on a multitude of silent and live auction items, all while supporting Pondera youth and an important part of Montana’s culture.
“It’s going to be fun,” said Wendy Judisch, who is organizing the celebration for Oct. 9.
The Pondera Shooting Sports Club (PSSC) Grand Opening is the culmination of local citizen grit and tenacity that turned an acre of farm ground into a community gathering place, a home for 4-H shooting sports, a meeting room for Hunter’s Education and private parties, as well as a safe, warm place for shooting enthusiasts to shoot 3-D archery and small bore competitions.
