Casting 4 A Cure / Bar Z Ranch

Posted on September 20, 2013

We spent last weekend at the Bar Z Riverside Ranch in the glorious state of Montana with Casting 4 A Cure, a charitable organization co-founded by our friend Bill Farnum to raise money for Rett Syndrome research and family support. Frankly, just a few short years ago we really were not familiar with Rett Syndrome, a neurodevelopment disorder which impacts young girls. After meeting Bill back in 2011, we have become fully engaged in the impact of Rett on his family and others around the world. Bill is an unbelievably dedicated champion of the cause, an expert at bringing people together and a person we admire without end. If you’ve ever met him, you know what we’re talking about.

Bill and C4C do not put on lame charity events where you slap down thousands of dollars to watch a Power Point presentation and eat cold chicken. Their events are deluxe, multi-night affairs and, honestly, whenever we attend one we feel like we get back far more than we put in. This time was no exception as we joined about 20 other supporters of C4C to square off in a little friendly fishing tournament on the Bar Z’s incredible waters to raise money for the cause. Along the way, we managed to pick a few bluegrass tunes with a couple of the Bar Z boys, drink up some Dry Fly whiskey, watch the White Sulphur Springs Hornets vs. Ennis Mustangs 8-Man football game, dodge some bears and make a load of new friends.

Here’s a few pics to prove we were there. If you have any spare change in your pocket or want to learn more about what you can do for C4C go to
