Note from Mr. Gunderson: I took a couple of weeks off from adding images to the 2019 Fall Gallery on the Pirate Tracks Blog.  Today I uploaded images from the Stevensville football game, Whitefish soccer games, Whitefish volleyball game, and the Browning volleyball game.  Within these images are some pictures of the Senior nights that I attended.  These were the last fall games that I attended and took pictures at so the next images will be from this Winters sports activities. The newest pictures start about halfway down page 24 of the 2019 Fall Gallery.  Please share this post with your Pirate and Lady Pirate friends.
