Search and Rescue at Red Lodge Ales

On the evening of June 16th at 7 PM, the community in Red Lodge came together for an important event and fundraiser for the town’s search and rescue program. For a $10 admission fee, participants gained access to the back lawn at Red Lodge Ales Brewery where climber Conrad Anker gave a presentation and talk that included the importance of search and rescue. Later in the night he also sold and signed copies of his book.

Despite slightly dreary weather, an impressive crowd gathered Friday night at Red Lodge Ales.

The event featured a raffle–with ticket purchases supporting the cause. The raffle featured goods from an impressive array of companies, including Patagonia and Mystery Ranch, as well as from local ones like Paris Montana and Red Lodge Ski Area.

Following the raffle, there was live music by local band, Tom Catmull’s Last Resort under cover of the large tent.

All in all this was a wonderful event to attend. Music was playing, beer from Red Lodge Ales was flowing, and everyone seemed to be having a genuinely good time while supporting an important local cause. This is a community that clearly cares about the outdoors and important measures surrounding it.
