Last Thursday night Sarah and Maggie ventured to the big city of Bozeman for a night on the town and to show our support for a very worthy cause, the Greater Gallatin Watershed Council. Our dear friends at Hatchopedia hosted their second annual Ol’ Blue & Big Fish Contest and although we were busy on Tour de Pants and couldn’t enter the big fish contest (our talents not only lie in pants!) we could help the effort in protecting southwest Montana’s unbelievable beautiful waterways as an event sponsor. Red Ants Pants is certainly proud to help organizations that are dedicated to keeping Montana’s great lands and rivers protected, clean, and accessible.
Not only was the event as a good celebration of the biggest catch and the excitement of winning a drift boat or old Jeep (which, sadly, neither one of us came away as the big winner) but a wonderful night spent with many of our Red Ants Pants friends and supporters. If you’ve already checked out RAP’s first commercial that aired in 2008 on YouTube then you might be familiar with one of our very talented model/actresses, Sam. Sam lives in Bozeman and is one of Sarah’s oldest and dearest Montana friends. And since Sam calls Bozeman home, we got to meet up with her at the event and check in to see how she’s fairing after her RAP video debut. Rest assured that this woman, who’s line from the commercial will be forever famous: “You got a chain?” has not allowed RAP fame to go to her head. In fact, Sam just graduated from Montana State University with a Master’s in Nutrition. Congrats to her!
You can try to take the girls out of Red Ants Pants, but you can’t take the Red Ants Pants out of the girls…despite casting aside our trademark pants for the evening and dressing up a bit in sun-dresses and our matching jean jackets. Nothing says spring in Montana like pale white legs out on the town with snow still high up in the mountains! Although we were at a fishing party, brown paper bags containing a new pair of RAPs were spotted and stickers were seen everywhere at the event! Congratulations to our friend Nick and his crew at Hatchopedia for hosting a successful fundraiser.
Now we’re all itching for our rainy weather to clear so we can get out and enjoy the rivers and mountains this spring!
