Tournament Manager Reports On Success
During the Wolf Point Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture meeting last week, Wolf Point School activities director Eric Peterson reported that the Eastern C Divisional Basketball Tournament went extremely well March 1-4.
“There were a lot of great games,” Peterson said. “The gym was full practically every night.”
The school’s concessions were very successful during the four days of boys’ and girls’ basketball games.
“There were long days, but it was worth it at the end,” Peterson added.
He said he heard positive comments from schools regarding getting meals at local restaurants.
He believes the Eastern C’s plan is to rotate divisional tournament sites annually between Wolf Point, Glasgow and Sidney.
Peterson said Wolf Point will host the District 2B boys’ and girls’ basketball tournament along with the divisional wrestling meet next school year.
“It’s important for the town of Wolf Point to have tournaments,” chamber president Jerald Petersen said.
The chamber expressed appreciation to businesses and individuals who helped made the hospitality room enjoyable for officials and coaches. Chamber officials are also grateful for volunteers who assisted at the tournament.
Petersen said the 100th Stampede committee is making positive progress. A commemorative poster, created by Clint Long, will soon be on sale for $65.
The committee’s large fundraiser is scheduled for May 5 at the Wolf Point Elks Event Center. Petersen described the auction items as being “amazing.”
He said the “Saddle Up and Open Chutes For the 100th Wolf Point Wild Horse Stampede” starts with snacks at 6 p.m. and the auction will begin at 7 p.m.
