As COVID-19 takes its toll on more and more events, including Montana Grizzly basketball summer camps for kids, hopefully this one will go on as planned.

UM basketball sports information director Nic Hallisey tells us that the 2020 edition of the Grizzly Roundball Golf Classic is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 11 at the Ranch Club in Missoula, giving fans a unique opportunity to visit with players and coaches in a relaxed setting while helping contribute to the future success of the UM basketball program.

Registration is open for teams of four. Individual entree fee is $200 per person and is limited to the first 32 paid teams. Elite hole sponsorship can also be secured for $500. Sponsorship includes signage provided by the tournament committee and a listing in the basketball program at all home games during the 2020-21 season. Individual hole sponsorship is $200, with signage provided by the tournament committee.

All proceeds directly benefit the Montana men's basketball program. You can get more registration and contact information here.

If Montana football does have a season, they are scheduled to be on the road September 12 for what is now their season opener at Missouri State. Might as well think basketball and golf that weekend as fundraising events and efforts become increasingly more important.
