Yippee! plans under way

By Kay Braddock

  Another great TerrYYippe! celebration is planned as  the 29th annual town-wide festivity kicks into gear with a host of activities scheduled for the Saturday, July 31 event.

The community-wide celebration will begin with a free Run and Fun at Murn Park for children ages 0 to 11. Donuts and juice will be provided. 
Registration for the fifth annual Montana State Corntoss Doubles Championship will begin at 9 a.m., with the tournament set to begin at 9:30 a.m. in Murn Park. 
Sponsored by Prairie Community Hospital, this sanctioned lawn game event is played with teams of two taking turns as they pitch corntoss bags, filled with feed corn, at raised wooden platforms. A corn bag tossed into the hole of the raised platform scores 3 points, while one landing on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues between the two competing teams until one team reaches a score of 21.
Cake and refreshments will be offered at 12:30 p.m. celebrating the Town of Terry’s official 100th birthday. Terry was incorporated in June 1910.
Music will also be provided during the afternoon events at Murn Park.
The Prairie County Museum and Cameron Gallery will be open to the public during TerrYYippee! from 1 pm  to 4 pm.
The day’s events will end with a downtown street dance with the Liquidators performing from 8 pm to midnight.
The Prairie County Motorcycle Association is offering up their own variety of fun during Terry’s annual Yippee celebration as well. 
The fun begins with a Friday evening concert featuring “The Clintons”. The July 30 concert begins with an opening act from Sam Hould and Dan Sampson starting at 7 p.m. at the county grandstands. The main event will follow at 8 p.m.
Miles City locals Sam Hould and Dan Sampson are favorites at Miles City’s open mic night on Friday evenings. Besides writing and playing their own music, Hould is a custom guitar builder.  
"The Clintons" are from Montana and perform a variety of music for all ages. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. Friday evening.
The third annual arenacross will be held Saturday, July 31 at the Prairie County Fairgrounds. Practice and qualifying rounds begin at 9 a.m. running through 2 p.m. with the main event starting at 3 p.m. 
Besides the typical arenacross racing, there will be two exhibition events that are crowd favorites -  the adult mini class, which is exactly what it sounds like ... adults racing little bikes - and new this year the “Farm Boy” class - an open cc class intended for locals that haven’t raced competitively in the past.   
Prairie County Motorcycle Association is a non-profit organization. It’s the group’s intent to put money back into the local community.  Board members are Cody Meidinger, Jeff Wallace, Gerald Schroeber, Jamy Frost, and Blayne Watts.  Secretary and Treasurer positions are held by Tristy Schroeber and Kathy Meidinger.
