We are less than two weeks away from the start of the 2018 Montana Grizzly football season and it's time to "encounter."

We wanted to pop in one more quick reminder, as there are lots of changes to this year's Great Griz encounter. Of course as usual, you can meet the Griz football team AND the volleyball team, get some autographs and just have a great time mingling with players and coaches. But the event has moved to Washington-Grizzly Stadium (not downtown) this Wednesday (not Thursday), August 22. Besides autographs, kids can burn some energy in the bouncy house on the field, among other fun activities. Also several vendors will be on hand selling hot new Griz merchandise. And you can even watch the movie Black Panther up on Griz Vision, a stadium first!

Gates open at 5:00 with player introductions. Autographs and activities start at 5:30, the movie begins at 7:30. The event is free to the public. What better way to get even more amped up about this year's Griz!!!
