Bullthing Eureka Montana 2015

The Bull Thing

The Bull Thing happened in Eureka on Saturday, August 29 starting at 7:00pm at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds (directly after the fair that day). Thousands of spectators bought tickets to watch the professional riders struggle and sway to stay on professional bulls. The event was part of the Touring Pro Division of Professional Bull Riders (PBR). Needless to say...those guys were tough.

Mmmm..A Piece of Pie at the Fair

Mmmm..A Piece of Pie at the Fair

People go to the Lincoln County Fair for numerous reasons. There are those individuals who enjoy ambling around seeing all the picture perfect vegetables and lovely flowers. There are those who go mainly for the livestock and to get their bid in during the auction. There are some who are content to sit in the shade and visit with friends and neighbors. Of course some are not really interested in the booths and exhibits at all but prefer going to the Bull Thing on Saturday evening. No matter what category you might be in, I suspect that you enjoy at least one piece of pie.

Community Update Meeting Suday, Aug 30, 7:00pm at the Trego Civic Center.

As of Thursday, August 20, our area is under Stage 2 fire restrictions: go to MT Fish, Wildlife & Parks for specifics.

Weather conditions across the Pacific Northwest, very hot and dry, have created a situation that is resulting in a lot of fires here and across the northwest. July was the hottest month on Earth since records began, according to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The conditions are "unprecedented for the northern Rockies....we had half the precipitation normal for June and July this year. It's dry....leaves and plants are dying back and drying up like they normally do in the fall. This is providing fuel for fires," said Steve Munson, fire behavior analyst for the Northern Rockies Type II Incident Management Team (IMT) that has been assigned to the Northeast Kootenai Fire Complex.(Click on that for fire updates)
