Door prizes!!

Door prizes!!

With a table overflowing with door prizes, we decided that the best way to kick off the party was to hand out a little swag before dinner.

Once the delicious smell of Mama Russo’s new grilled Yooper Beer Brats wafted into the banquet area, the guests started lining up to fill their plates with brats and fresh, homemade salads.

After the contestants had filled up and plates had been swept away by the attentive staff at the Red Rock Lanes and Entertainment Center, it was time for a little game. Competing for a night of free bowling or a free pizza, the guests tried their hands at a washer toss.

Brian MacFalda won the Oulu Lodge Sauna Giveaway from Hiawatha Log Homes and Great Lakes Radio

Brian McFalda couldn’t believe his luck when he pulled out the winning ticket for the $7,500 Oulu Lodge Sauna Kit from Hiawatha Log Homes and Great Lakes Radio! Although only Brian won the grand prize, the rest of the finalists were pretty ecstatic about their envelopes too. Each envelope held a certificate to win great gifts like gift baskets from Super One Foods, a complete auto detailing from Hoover’s Auto body and a leather satchel with headphones and other items stuffed inside from Bacardi.

Yesterday was the first time that I got to meet Mr. James in person, and I have to say that he is just as nice in person as he is over the air! He has a towering stature, but he’s incredibly kind and personable! It was so great to get to meet him, and I can’t wait until the Mustangs start playing next season!
