WARM & DRY. Following today’s rains, things look generally warm and dry in the long-range forecast leading into the July 4 holiday. Highs in the 70s and low 80s along with only a slight chance of rain paint a nice picture for the next week.
TOURN IT ON. Six fishing tournaments are on tap this weekend before the holiday break (there are no tourneys on the July 5-7 weekend). The Badlands Bass Bandits will be on smallie patrol as they head to Spiritwood Lake.
BUST EM UP. If you’re looking to shoot off more than fireworks next week – check out the Summertime Coin Shoot at the Buffalo City Gun Club on July 6. This ATA 400-target event will help cap off an awesome week, and the prized Silver Eagle Coin trophies await top shooters.
