We are ready to hold our annual March Madness event.  This is one of our more popular events.  It will be held on March 12, at 6pm at the club.

Here are the rules for this year.  We will be doing a blind draw for teams.  1st place gets half the cigars (32), second place gets a quarter (16) and third and fourth share a quarter (8 each).

Each draw for a team will cost you one premium cigar.  This year we are defining a premium cigar as one having a shelf price of $12 or more.  And here’s the most important part.  You must buy your cigar locally, from either The Belle, Worden’s, or Out of the Box.  No internet purchases.

Last year everyone was able to draw three teams (which would cost you three cigars).  If you want to participate and can not be there, send your cigars with a friend.  If you are like Truman and have no friends, get your cigars to one of the owners and we will draw for you.
Any questions, please reach out.

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!
