Gopher Fest is an annual fund raiser held on the first Saturday of June in Lima, Montana. After paying the $10 entry fee and checking in at 10:00am at Ralph’s Exxon in Lima, contestants have six hours to gather as many tails as they can before the 4:00pm tail count in the park next to Ralph’s Exxon (Don’t be late). There is a gun raffle and barbecue immediately following the tail count. Gopher Fest shirts and hats are for sale at Ralph’s Exxon. Prizes are awarded based on tail count. All of the proceeds go to the Lima community swimming pool to help with maintenance, swim lessons, and lifeguard wages. For further information call Ralph’s Exxon at 406-276-3431.
