Milk River Catfish Classic Set for June 6th In Glasgow
We have some changes coming to this year’s Cat Classic.
There will be NO Friday Night Live Band or Street Dance on Front Street this year due to the Covid-19 restrictions, however, we do have plans to move forward with a Calcutta of the fishing teams.
We will be following guidelines from the Governor’s Office and our Local Health Board and we are planning to section off the street in front of the Montana Bar to be able to auction off ALL 80 Teams on Friday June 5th from 7:00-9:00 PM.
The Famous Midnight Weigh-Ins will also be moving locations. It will now be held in the large Elks Parking lot. (Across the street from the Elks and behind the Busted Knuckle)
Full details will be released by the end of this week following the approval of our Phase 2 Social Distancing plans for both the Catfish Classic and the Glasgow Chamber’s Milk River Catfish Days event!!

Glasgow Girls Softball Association Tentatively Plans Season For Month Of June
Good news! The GGSA Board has decided to move forward with a softball season this year. It is going to look a little different than it has in the last couple of years. The length of the season will remain the same and will wrap up at the end of June. In an effort to address concerns related to Covid-19 we will be working to manage the season so that it falls in line with guidelines from the Valley County Health Department. If you are not comfortable with your daughter playing this season, please let a Board member know as soon as possible and we will get you a refund.
We are planning to start practices the week of May 11th. Coaches will contact parents to schedule days and times. Practices will be similar in format as last year with the addition of social distancing measures.
In order for the league to play games we are dependent upon the Governor's office rolling the State of Montana into Phase 2. Phase 2 would allow us to loosen social distancing requirements and make it feasible to play games in June. Our plan for games, should we enter into Phase 2, is to have two teams from each age group formed to compete with each other in a series of double headers. Due to low 14U numbers, we will most likely combine 12U and 14U this year. That may change if we have enough girls sign up after second chance sign-ups. The MonDak League that 10U - 14U are a part of is made up of a few other towns outside of our county. Currently they are not starting practices and some do not have approval from their health departments to participate. If other towns become eligible to play we will make every effort to get the teams some additional games.
In terms of concessions, we are still working out the details on that. We will get out information on that as soon as we can. In regards to the raffle tickets, the girls have been doing a great job selling them! Let's have all raffle tickets and money turned into the coaches or a Board member by May 31st. We will do the drawings in early June. If you need more books let a Board member know.
Since the high school season was cut short we were unable to hold second chance sign-ups which some of you were waiting for to sign up. If you have not signed up yet you may do so at the following link and a Board member will contact you to complete registration. If you know of someone who would be interested in joining softball please pass the link along to them. You may also contact any Board member.
We look forward to making the best of the 2020 season and getting the girls back on the diamond. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please let the Board know. ????

Sign-Ups Now Available For Cal Ripken Youth Baseball
The Board of Directors of the Glasgow Cal Ripken League met on Sunday and formulated a tentative plan to have youth baseball in Glasgow in 2020.
Now...much depends on Governor Bullock and when and if he decides to move Montana into Phase 2 of reopening the state. If Governor Bullock moves Montana into Phase 2 on or before May 22nd the tentative plan is to have baseball during the month of June. One month of baseball with number of games to be determined. If Montana isn’t moved into Phase 2 by May 22nd the season will be cancelled.
At this point due to the restrictions, the small amount of time for baseball and other logistical reasons, there will be no Minor League Baseball this year. The league will be Majors only for ages 9-12.
Realizing that many circumstances have changed, the league will have another sign up session. This is to determine the amount of players interested in playing baseball under different circumstances then when they originally signed up.
Understand that this is all tentative and the board is in uncharted territory. Our goal has been and always will be to provide an environment that is safe and fun. Understand the league will look different and all health recommendations will be followed.
The online sign-up is now available. If you have any questions contact Linda Hudyma at 406-390-4667
MHSA Cancels Spring Sports Season
Story from Montanasports.com
HELENA -- Spring sports in Montana are officially canceled.
The Montana High School Association and executive director Mark Beckman sent a release on Wednesday afternoon following Governor Steve Bullock's press conference detailing the gradual re-opening of Montana, beginning with "Phase 1" this weekend. In that press conference, Bullock said schools would have the option to re-open beginning Thursday, May 7, three days after the MHSA's hard deadline of May 4.
"As you are aware, the Governor has issued a reopening plan for the state, which included local school districts to determine allowing in-person instruction on May 7," Beckman's release read. "Because of the previous MHSA Board action, resumption of spring activities depended on our students' ability to return to in-person instruction without restrictions by May 4, and if in-person instruction didn't resume by that time without restrictions, spring activities would be canceled. The spring 2020 season is canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which is affecting communities across our country."
On Thursday, April 9, the MHSA executive board met via conference call and agreed to extend the postponement of spring activities in Montana but stated that the season would be canceled if in-class schooling wasn't resumed by May 4. Wednesday afternoon, Beckman confirmed with the MHSA board that Governor Bullock's statements indeed put an end to the spring sports season.
Montana is one of the final 15 states to cancel high school spring sports. The MHSA previously had to cancel its state basketball tournaments at the conclusion of semifinal games, naming co-champions in each classification.
"We look forward to the resumption of high school activities during the 2020-21 school year with some level of normalcy," Beckman's release continued. "Our office will be entirely focused on contingency plans for the 2020 fall season and beyond, should they be needed. We will continue to communicate as state, local and health agencies keep us informed of new public health guidelines."
In an interview with MTN Sports on Wednesday afternoon, Beckman said he felt for the student-athletes, coaches, parents and officials that were holding out hope for a spring sports season.
"You look at some of these kids that, it’s their last opportunity to ever participate in a spring sport," he said. "There are a lot of them that were looking for personal bests or looking for championships, and there were a lot of teams that would have done really well, too. The seniors, definitely, it is difficult."
Montana's stay-at-home order will be lifted on Sunday, April 26, while other businesses and organizations will be able to remove their restrictions, though they must adhere to social distancing measures. For more information on Governor Bullock's plan for Phase 1, please click here.
Ali Cunningham Signs With Dickinson State For Track and Field and Cross Country.
Story from 406mt.sports.com
BILLINGS — Glasgow senior Ali Cunningham has signed with Dickinson State University for cross country and track and field, Cunningham announced on Twitter Saturday.

High School Spring Activities To Remain Suspended Through April 24th
April 9, 2020
TO: MHSA SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS
FROM: MARK BECKMAN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
RE: MHSA SPRING ACTVITIES STATUS
The MHSA Executive Board, during a conference call to conduct Association business on Thursday morning, took the following action regarding MHSA Spring Activities: All MHSA spring activities will be suspended through April 24th. This includes practices and contests/meet/festivals. Resumption of spring activities will depend on our student’s ability to return to in-person instruction by May 4th. If in-person instruction doesn’t resume by that time, spring activities will be cancelled. We take seriously the directives from the Governor, State Health Department and CDC for the safety of our students and for their communities. Their safety is our top priority during these challenging times.
If spring activities are resumed, the practice requirement for sports at that time will be five practices from resumption except for golf which will be the normal two practices required.
If spring activities are resumed, post season formats will be adjusted by the MHSA with Executive Board approval.
The MHSA April Executive Board meeting scheduled for April 20-21 has been postponed tentatively until May 18-19, 2020, depending on the directives from the Governor, State Health Department at that time.
Thank you and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
