        Two couples from Terry traveled to Lewistown for the Snowy Mountain Rendezvous, June 28-30. 

Carolyn and Gary Huber with grandson, Justis stayed in Lewistown and drove out to the East Fork Reservoir, also known as the Ed McGivern Memorial Park, daily to set up their goods to sell. Adam and Jerri Lacquement and son Hunter arrived Thursday to set up their lodge and cookware for the weekend event.
Gary, Carolyn, Justis, Adam, and Hunter all took part in the shooting events that took place over the weekend. Jerri stayed in the camp to care for the daily meals. Everyone enjoyed going through the traders’ row and looking at the items for sale. 
The weather was just right for camping and when it did get too hot the reservoir was a good place to cool off.

Hunter won first place in the PeeWee competition with Justis coming in second. Carolyn took first and second place in the women’s competition. Gary took second place in the percussion aggregate, which is the total of all competitions in that class.
Adam was able to pick a prize off the blanket for his scoring in the competition. 
A hog feed was provided by the Snowy Mountain Club and the turn out was around 200 people that came through. This included the campers that were there and others that came from town and the surrounding areas. 
Everyone had fun and came home with treasures that will be kept for years to come. 
This event is open to the public and will be taking place the last weekend of June next year located at the same place.  If anyone is interested in attending this fun event for some fun in a time period set in the 1840’s please venture out to Lewistown.
