Look at all these awesome vintage cars

Marquette, MIJune 15, 2019 – The annual “Catch the Vision Car Show and Cruise” took place this afternoon, and once again, it was a huge hit.  People came out by the dozens with their classic cars, eager to show them off to the spectators who came to the Westwood Mall.  Major Discount has never been one to miss an event like this, so he took the short trip from the offices of Great Lakes Radio to the car show and went on-air talking about all the fun going on.

The Major was very impressed by all the vintage vehicles that were parked at the Westwood Mall, and even talked to a few of the owners.  He also described the raffles that were going on throughout the show, and told people about all the different aspects of the afternoon, from the “Rev It Up” contest to the Best in Show and People’s Choice awards.

Special thanks to all of our participating sponsors: Marquette Township Business Assocation, Smokehouse Glenn, New Attitudes Dance Studio, Willy Nilly’s Good and Chilly Frozen Treats, Mama Russo’s, Super One Foods, the Westwood Mall, TV6/FoxUP, and Great Lakes Radio.

Marquette, MI  –  January 27, 2019  –  We certainly “caught the vision” during today’s gathering at Lions Field Ice Rink in Marquette Township for some hockey fun and a chance to support a local family. Originally today’s exhibition game was to be a match up against the Marquette Redmen and Marquette Mutineers, but with a sudden cancellation, the Northern Michigan University Club Hockey Team stepped in to take the Redmen’s place on the ice.

In memory of those who were lost.
In memory of those who were lost.

After a fatal car crash claimed the life of two young Iron Range Hockey Players, who were friends to many on the both the Marquette Mutineers and NMU Club Hockey team, the players decided to dedicate today’s game to their fallen friends. The information spread quickly and community members from all over Marquette County came out to enjoy the game and support the Johnson family during this devastating time.

The Mutineers and Wildcats took the ice shortly after 1pm today for an hour long outdoor exhibition hockey game. It was a bone chilling afternoon, but the players had a blast and so did the people spectating the game! The Township had free hot chocolate to help warm everyone up while they watched the meet up game between the Wildcats and Mutineers. Though both teams fought hard, in the end, the results were similar to last year’s game against the NMU Club Hockey Team with the Mutineers taking home another win.

Thanks to everyone who came out to watch the game today!

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover medical and funeral expenses for the Johnson Family. Other hockey associations from all over Michigan as well as the community have raised up to support this local hockey family, donating over $6,000 toward the fundraising goal already. If you wish to make a donation and were not able to join us at today’s game, visit the official GoFundMe Page for the Johnsons.

Our thoughts go out to the Johnson Family during this difficult time and thank you to everyone who came out today to support the family and our Township!

Missed out on today’s hockey game? Catch the Mutineers at Lakeview Arena on February 8th as they host the Calumet Wolverines. This game will also be dedicated to the Johnson family. One of the family members will be doing an honorary puck drop and following the game there will be a short ceremony to present them all the money that has been raised. Follow the Marquette Mutineers Facebook Page for more information.

Marquette, MI – January 20, 2019 – This afternoon our local college hockey team, the Northern Michigan University Wildcats, joined us at Lions Field Ice Rink in Marquette Township for a “Catch the Vision” NMU Hockey experience!

Thank you Northern Michigan University Wildcats Hockey Team for playing today.

The team split up for some four-on-four intersquad hockey action on the outdoor ice rink while the community came out to watch the game and enjoy some hot cocoa! Both sides fought hard and had fun challenging each other on the ice, making for a great unique game the community could enjoy.

It was a frigid afternoon in the township, but that didn’t stop people from coming out, including a few little “future NMU Hockey players”. Kids brought their jerseys and hockey sticks for the team to sign and told their local stars of their own aspirations to be on the NMU Hockey Team one day!

This little boy just got his hockey stick signed!

If you missed this opportunity to join us for some hockey fun, you’ve got another chance coming up next Sunday, January 27th! The Marquette Redmen and Marquette Mutineers will take the ice to battle it out at Lions Field in Marquette Township! Come out and catch the game and bring your Marquette team apparel for a chance to get it signed, or grab a photo with your favorite players! The township will once again have free hot chocolate to warm you up while you enjoy some family-friendly hockey fun starting at 1pm on Sunday.
