Local fans forming
tailgate group to
Support the Griz

 There are a lot of University of Montana Grizzly fans in the Seeley Swan, but they probably lacked organization until last Saturday when local tailgaters gathered at the home of Roger and Rhea Johnson to discuss expenses and other heavy topics, including a loose discussion about some kind of name for the group. The group plans on continuing tailgate parties before games where the Grizz take the home field in Missoula; other business will be considered when the need arises. New members are welcome. The founders, shown from left, are Rhea Johnson, Rachel Vielleux, Nancy Newlon, Beverly White, Roger Johnson, Harry Newlon, Jim Wheeler, Julie Hainline, Tom West, Kitty Logan, Mike Holmes Jabet Wheeler, Tim Lindeman, Gary Boe, Tony Quadros, Lee Eslick, and Jeff Hainline. Not pictured, but present somewhere, is Frank White. G. Noland photo
