About MSBA

Range District


Meets every other month except during summer; meetings are usually first Thursday


In May, we award our Range Bar Scholarship to a worthy law student who graduated from an Iron Range High School.

In June/July, the Trenti Law Firm sponsors the Judge Rantala Triathlon, a long standing tradition of "the old guys" versus "the young ones." "The old guys" (aka "The Silver Foxes") win every year due to the tournament level conditioning of bicycler Patrick Roche. But every year there is a keen threat posed by the untested abilities of new members.

In August the Range Bar teams with the Duluth (Eleventh District) Bar to host a golf tournament that alternates between a Range golf course and a Duluth golf course.
