Montana:East-West Shrine game to be held in Great Falls in 2009

East-West Shrine update Heath Heggem for KRTV in Great Falls

The East-West Shrine Football Game will be held in Great Falls this year, but will be moving to different locales in following years.

At a recent meeting, the Shrine Board voted to amend their bylaws in order to begin rotating the location of the Montana Shrine Game to the three towns that have Shrine Temples in Montana: Helena, Butte and Billings.

The Helena temple will host the game in Great Falls later this year; in 2010 it will be played in Butte, and in 2011 Billings will host the game.

By rotating the games, board members hope to encourage cities to do their best and earn the privilege of hosting the game.

The Shrine Game has been played in Great Falls since 1947. The goal of the event is to raise money and awareness for Shriners Hospitals for Children.
