SIDNEY HERALD Around our area WEDNESDAY, AUG. 29,2012 7A Serving our country Members of the 260th Engineer Support Company, featuring soldiers from Richland County, in Afghanistan. SUBMITTED Year of the record in Montana Cats Circuit BY MONTANA cars STAFF The 2012 version of the Montana Cats Circuit will always be known as the year of the "record." For the third time this year, a new standard was set. And for the second time this year, one of the fishermen was Chad Dawson. Dawson, Dickinson, N.D.. joined forces with Lars Sorensen, Williston, N.D., to take down the field at the second annual Missouri River Catfish Clash held in Williston. The duo fo- cused their efforts on submerged cover and deep water to land over 20 catfish on the day. "We lost more than our fair share as well, but thankfully we were able to put good weight in the boat," Dawson said of the performance. As was the case with most of the top five, cut creek chub was the key bait of the day for the champs. Their five fish limit tipped the scales at a new tournament record 37.79 pounds, besting the previ- ous total of 34.36 pounds. Sorensen landed the second largest catfish of the tournament, a 10.69 beauty that helped separate them from the rest of the field. This is Dawsons second champi- onship of 2012 to go along with his vic- tory at the Monster Cat Roundup and the third victory of his young promis- ing Montana Cats Circuit career. Speaking of young and promising. This year's Milk River Catfish Clas- sic Champions struck again. The 16-year-old teammates put together another very impressive showing with a runner-up finish this weekend. Gage Gordon, Belgrade, and McKenzie Reid, Belgrade, rolled over to North Dakota intent on a follow up victory and came up just short. Weighing in their limit of five cats at 36.43 pounds, the young squad proved its win at this year's Classic was no joke, and the team plans on contending every year from here on out. You will be hard pressed to find a more successful teenage tour- nament squad in the country. Round- ing out the top three was the Sidney connection of Troy Cotter and Mike Licking weighing in at just under 30 pounds. The veteran tournament anglers attributed their success to the use of jumbo raw shrimp for bait. Tournament participation rose to 39 teams, up from 21 in year number one. Thirty-seven teams fished from boat on the beautiful 85-degree day. Steve Harris Sr., Sidney, set a new standard himself. His 10.94-pound brute is yet another record set at this year's clash. Twenty-six of the 39 teams weighed in fish, and the top 13 all brought in more than 20 pounds to the scales. Montana Cats has their eye on year number three for the Clash and have intentions on filling the 60-team field. It will be returning in August 2013 on a yet-to-be determined weekend. A huge thanks should be reserved for tournament directors Steve and Ashley Harris, Sidney. These two go above and beyond to promote the sport of catfishing throughout the region. Top 10 Overall (39 Teams) 1. Chad Dawson, Dickinson, N.D. and lars So- rensen, Williston, ND., 37.79 pounds. 2. Gage Gordon, Belgrade, and Mackenzie Reid, Belgrade, 36.43 pounds. 3.

Fort Union presents Living History weekend Living History weekend is Saturday through Monday, and the story of missionar- ies coming to Fort Union are this year's Last Bell Tour for the Saturday night. The setting for this year's Last Bell Tour is based on events that occurred over July 1 and 2, 1858, when two German Lutheran mission. aries briefly visited at Fort Union. On June 22, 1858, the steamboat Twilight, an opposition boat leased to Frost, Todd & Co., off loaded Indian annuities for the Crow & Assiniboine. Also aboard were the two mis- sionaries, western artist Carl Wimar, Indian Agents Alexander Redfield [for the Upper Missouri Agent] & Alfred Vaughn [agent for the Blackfoot] and replacement company personnel. Saturday's Last Bell Tours will begin in the upper park- ing lot at 8 p.m. CDT, where visitors will assemble. Tour leaders will orient visitors and escort them through the fort where they will be confronted by a series of period scenes. Beginning at 8 p.m., six tours of 20-25 people each will be con- ducted through the trading post at 15-minute intervals tours will begin at 8 p.m., 8:20 p.m., 8:45 p.m., 9 p.m. and 9:20 p.m. The fort will be illuminated by candlelight, lanterns, and fireplaces. The Last Bell Tours are only a part of Living His- tory Weekend when the muzzleloaders, staff and other reenactors become engages (laborers), clerks, traders, Indian warriors and Metis women. Besides living in the fort reenactors will eat meals cooked out behind the Bourgeois House on a wood-burning stove. Fort Union's Trade House will be open every day throughout most of Sep- tember with living history interpreters.
