As spring and summer approach, things are going to start to pick up in and around Bozeman.  Let's just be honest, it's been a long winter, and for a whole lot of us, any reason to get out of the house is a good reason.

This weekend Bozeman will host the 2023 State Summer Games for the Montana Special Olympics. This is exciting news, especially when you consider that for the last few years, the games have been limited, but this year it will be a return to the full program and this year's theme "Together At Last" acknowledges that fact.


The 3 Day event is one of the most inspirational and uplifting events that you will ever attend, and people in and around Bozeman are going to have a wonderful opportunity to be part of this year's games.

The State Games will take place between May 17th-9th. The opening ceremony will be at Bobcat Stadium at 6:15 PM with special guest Stephanie Quayle. Events this year include bocce, track and field, golf, gymnastics, soccer, swimming, and cycling.  The Montana Special Olympics is looking for volunteers that would be willing to help at the event to make sure that the athletes have a wonderful time.

There are several different ways that folks can volunteer, and it's estimated that around 1000 volunteers will be needed to make sure that the games run smoothly.  This would be a great opportunity for friends, families, businesses, non-profits, clubs, fraternities, and sororities to be part of something very special.

If you are interested, you can visit the Montana Special Olympics website to check out the different opportunities and pick something that is best suited for you.

Montana State University Gold Rush Game 2022

The day was hot and so were the Bobcats. The first game of the season against McNeese State, and the Bobcats were ready to send those Cowboys back to the south.

Temperatures close to 100 degrees, didn't stop our Bobcats OR their dedicated fans. Bobcat Football brings out fans of all ages to cheer and be a part of a dream for many youth. Future Bobcats right here? I hope so, they already have amazing spirit!

The Bobcats took the win with ease, staying one step ahead of the McNeese Cowboys, the team looked fresh, ready, and the end score proved they were ready to come out on top of the season opener.

With a final score of 40-17, the Bobcats put the southern boys back on a plane with their first loss of the season, and the first win for our Bobcats.

Week two is just around the corner with a home game on September 10th, which also brings the Military Appreciation game. Just one way we love to show our Military Personnel an extra THANK YOU.

If you haven't gotten your tickets yet, be listening to Derek and Megan in the morning on 100.7 XL Country ALL week for your chance to score a pair of tickets to the next home game.

Also, make sure to stop by our XL Country Tailgate to register to win concert tickets, gift cards, and of course, MORE BOBCAT TICKETS than any other station. GO CATS GO!
