The Butte event will be held at the Butte Country Club, June 2nd. Registration starting at 10 am, shotgun start at 12:30 pm. Don “Moose” Petritz is in charge of the Butte Event and I asked him to talk about the importance of this event.
“The money that we raise goes towards the scholarship association, scholarship fund. To help fund Grizzly athletes, and sometimes it helps with facilities as well. So that’s our whole purpose, to raise money for the Montana Scholarship Association.”
“The golf event started 25-30 years ago; maybe even longer than that” according to Moose, “as a joint fundraiser for both the University of Montana and Montana State University. It was always to raise funds for both athletic departments and primarily for scholarship associations of both schools.”
“Then in about 2008-2009 we no longer did the event in association with the Cats, we did it on our own. So it’s been going on, overall, for 30 years or better”
After golf, the event will move inside the BCC, and event-goers will (more than likely) hear from Director of Athletics Kent Haslam, Deputy Director of Athletics Greg Sundberg, and Grizzly Scholarship Association Director -Coleson Randall.
Also expected to be at the event are football head coach Bobby Hauck, women’s basketball coach Brian Holsinger, men’s basketball coach Travis DeCuire, as well as numerous assistant coaches.
Local Griz legends Mick Delaney and Mick Dennehy will also be in attendance.
