Telluride MountainFilm on Tour in Whitefish April 19

By Beacon Staff

Hey Flathead Valley (and beyond!) – I hope you’re gearing up for a lovely weekend.

So… have you given any thought as to your plans for Tuesday? No? Well, take this into consideration:

The Telluride MountainFilm on Tour is headed to Whitefish on April 19, courtesy of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation.

Here’s the skinny from the BMWF’s Facebook page for the event:

Join us for a night of incredible independent films celebrating the indomitable spirit and support the BMWF’s continued efforts of volunteer trail restoration and noxious weed eradication in the Bob!

The exciting event will also feature our wildly popular raffle and prize giveaways at each location. This year we’re also featuring a Grand Prize Raffle, courtesy of Swan Mountain Outfitters, a 5-day pack trip in the Bob Marshall Wilderness for Two, valued at $3500. Other raffle prizes include raft trips, fly fishing packages, gear, lodging, dining, horse trips and much much more! Beverages, snacks and BMWF information on volunteer projects will be available at all locations. Discounted Bob Squad memberships will also be available.

The Whitefish leg of the tour is one of the last Montana stops; other showing begin on April 16. If you’re in the neighborhood, check these dates out:
