For the next three years, the games will be held in Missoula.

McCann says this years games are in need of volunteers in cycling, bowling, hospitality and a number of others.

McCann says since this is the last year in Billings, he would like to make these games the best they've had come out of Billings.

"We're ready to send it on to Missoula, which is where it will be for the next three years. We'd like to give them something to shoot for as they go forward."
