A passport to adventure

Big Sky Community Organization’s (BSCO) VIP Passport Campaign is off and running. Every $100 donated will earn one chance to win. Two hundred tickets are sold for a shot at two grand prizes: Turks & Caicos for two people, including airfare and four nights at the Seven Stars Resort & Spa on Grace Bay or the Community VIP Passport.

Young organization makes strides

Big Sky will soon have new recycling bins at Fire Pit Park, the Wilson Hotel Plaza and the Big Sky Community Organization Park. These recycling bins will be for aluminum, plastic, trash and compost.

This is one element of a larger goal of the fledgling Big Sky Sustainability Network Organization (Big Sky SNO).

Community cleanup October 9

Nearly 1.6 million barrels of oil are used every year to produce plastic bottles. Those bottles can take up to 450 years to decompose, according to The Balance. The 18 billion disposable diapers thrown away every year take about 250-500 years to decompose. It is a dirty world out there but it does not have to be.

Powder Blast goes virtual

For the first time in 22 years, Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center (GNFAC) is having to cancel its most important fundraiser – the Powder Blast. It is an event that annually provides over $100,000 in support to the GNFAC in an effort to assist community members who push to the backcountry.

Respect the range

About 10 miles south of Big Sky on Hwy. 191 is a shooting range on the west side of the road. The property is courtesy of the Forest Service, but the sweat equity to make it nice and keep it open belongs entirely to a handful of dedicated locals.

Golfing for Big Brothers Big Sisters

Last year and the 17 years before, celebrities descended upon Big Sky from all corners of the nation. They came for the highly regarded and celebrated Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Big Sky Country Celebrity Golf Tournament – a single event that typically generates nearly half of the funding needed to support Big Sky programs.
