Win the ultimate hunting package!

The best part isn’t the time outdoors, though that’s certainly near the top of the list.

No, the best part about hunting, at least according to Jack, is all the tasty eating that comes for the six to nine months following.

Deer, elk and more deer – that sounds like breakfast, lunch and dinner to Jack.

This fall, Jack is absolutely delighted to offer up a sweet hunter’s package that honors not just the sport – but the eating part, too. Not one but TWO loyal Jackheads will be walking away this month with a $500 gift certificate to Snowy Mountain Rifles plus a gigantic top-loading freezer from Fred’s Appliance.

Snowy Mountain Rifles has been operating in Hamilton for years, but last year they expanded to a new store in Missoula out on Stockard Road. At either location, though, you’re going to enjoy great, personal customer service and a terric selection of rifles, accessories, camo clothing and other gear, as well as services like gunsmithing and cerakoting.

Whether your game is hunting elk in the high country or shooting steel, Snowy Mountain can hook you up with extreme power, extreme range and extreme accuracy.

And Fred’s Appliance is pretty much a local legend at this point. Need a washer and dryer? Fred’s. New kitchen appliances? Fred’s. They offer big box store prices without being a big box store. They’re local, they’re personable, and they’ll take care of you.

So now the big question … how do you win?

Well, there’s two ways. Starting Tuesday, Sept. 4th, listen out for the elk call on 105.9 Jack FM, and when you hear it just text the word “JACK” to 406-848-1059 … OR … starting that same day you can register in person out at Snowy Mountain Rifles. They’re located at 2935 Stockyard Road, just off North Reserve behind the Marriott. They’re open 9-6 every weekday and they’ll be glad to get you all signed up.

Jack will draw two winners – the first on Sept. 14, the second on Sept. 28.

Best of luck to ya. And if you do manage to get something tasty in that there freezer, don’t forget who sent ya …

 

We don’t need much of an excuse to take the beautiful summertime drive down the Bitterroot.

But for those of you looking for a good reason, may we suggest the upcoming Bitterroot Celtic Games & Gathering in Hamilton?

Whether as a participant or just an onlooker, a fun experience is pretty much all but guaranteed at this 9th annual event. The list of activities is long, but here are some highlights:

• Highland Athletic Competitions: If super strong men in kilts hurling logs sounds like fun, then you don’t want to miss the Highland games. There’s lots of events for women and children in here too, and all participants receive a weekend pass plus a T-shirt. CLICK HERE for a schedule of events or to register.

• Dancing, drumming and piping competitions: Nothing brings us back to the old country like traditional Celtic song and dance, and the weekend is packed with competitions and showcases by all ages and abilities.

• Food: Nothing completes a festival like delicious food and drink, and at the Bitterroot Celtic Games & Gathering you’re going to be delighted by all the traditional fare options, including Scottish smoked salmon cheese pate, whiskey and scotch tastings and more!

Also, be sure to catch the Beards & Braids contest, the Tug-o-War and free piping and language classes throughout the weekend.

This year’s Bitterroot Celtic Games & Gathering kicks off at 9 am Saturday, August 18 and runs through the end of day Sunday. A full schedule of events is available HERE – or be sure to stay on top of the latest news and happenings on the group’s Facebook event page.

Get your Celtic on with Jack!
Fireworks show returns to Southgate Mall

You can have your Christmases and Thanksgivings and all those other high-pressure holidays.

But when it comes to our favorite annual celebration, Jack takes the Fourth of July without hesitation.

Fireworks-still-a-fizzleThink about it: There’s no requirement for gift-giving, the weather is usually nice, you can spend it with whoever you want, and it’s a holiday about patriotism. Oh yeah, and there’s the whole fireworks thing.

This year, Jack’s doubling down on his excitement because after a two-year hiatus the largest fireworks display on this side of the state is returning. We’re talking about the big explosions-filled, Americana music fest that goes down in the parking lot of Southgate Mall.

According to a mall’s Facebook post, the fireworks event is happening again this year after taking the last two years off. Not many details have been unveiled about “4th Fest” other than that it’s happening from 7-11 pm at the mall on Wednesday, July 4th. We assume more details will be coming soon.

Truth be told, despite being a (mostly) lifelong Missoula resident, we’ve only actually partaken in the festivities at the mall one time. That’s because the best thing about the show – and about living in the Missoula Valley – is that you can pretty much enjoy it from anywhere. Pick a mountain, a hill, a rooftop, bring a blanket and your own playlist and enjoy the show.

Because this is America, and while Jack’s always looking for a great excuse to celebrate there really is no better reason than love of country. And pretty explosions in the sky.

All in all you’re just another brick in the … wallaby?

Jack FM Missoula is excited to send a few lucky listeners to see the Australian Pink Floyd Show LIVE at Northern Quest Resort & Casino on Thursday, Sept. 13!

Formed in 1988 and having sold over 4 million tickets in 35 countries, Australian Pink Floyd is hailed as one of the leading concert performances currently operating.

The band began its adventure as part of a wave of Australian tribute bands and broke into the international scene with their performance at the Pink Floyd fan convention in 1993. Since then, they’ve been playing bigger and more prestigious venues across the world – as well as having released several live concert DVDs and CDs.

Like the best tribute shows, Australian Pink Floyd isn’t just about “covering” your favorite Floyd tunes; they put all their energy into recreating the look, feel and sound of the classic rock band’s world tours – including familiar visual aids! Inflatable kangaroo, anyone?

Jack FM has scored three pairs of tickets and we’ll be giving them away for FREE every Friday through June 22!
