2021 Fire in the Hole

On July 17th 90 attendees, 70 golfers and four cigar exhibitors gathered for the third annual summer event, Fire in the Hole, hosted by Fools’ End Club. The event was held for the first time at Missoula Country Club. The staff and facilities were top notch! Thank you also to the volunteers from the Western Montana Shrine Cub. The day of golf, socializing and cigars went very well. The skies were filled with smoke, from forest fires, and supplemented with cigars smoke from Big Sky Cigars, Carolina Blue, and Juanito’s, as well as Out of the Box.

Partial funds from the event were used to fund the Western Montana Shrine Club as well as the Boy Scouts of America. Watch here for the announcement of the 2022 event, coming soon.

A good way to get to know some of the players right before the spring scrimmages. Plan to come down and show off your lack of football knowledge!

Kevin’s Holiday Tasting

On December 19th Kevin Head of the Rhino graciously provided a remarkable selection of single malts and bourbons. All of the spirits were from Kevin’s private collection and the event was simply remarkable and a one of a kind opportunity for members and guests.

This is the second year that Kevin has reached out to help the club. All proceeds from this tasting are used to retire legal debt that was accumulated in fighting the frivolous lawsuit brought by the Missoula County Health Department. 

The event was attended by 25 members and guests. The club appreciates the support of our members in these types of events.

Kevin Head, on right, entertains our guests with a fine selection of bourbons and whiskies.

Remember the next event is Smoke on the Water July 25th!
