We've been busy the last two months, finishing up the Flint Generals postseason, planning future projects, hiring a new staff member and seeing where we're going in 2010. First off, we wish to congratulate the Flint Generals on a (semi) successful season--it was a good start, then they hit some rough patches with many off-ice problems, which were finally resolved before they reached the Turner Cup Playoffs.
After it looked as though they would miss out, they went into high gear and reached the postseason, finishing off the Muskegon Lumberjacks 4 games to 3...winning two in a row, each 5-2. Then it was on to the Turner Cup Finals, facing the mighty two-time defending champion Fort Wayne Komets...games 3 and 4 saw sellout crowds, the last being 4,065...something that hasn't been seen since January 11, 2008, when former Detroit Red Wing Darren McCarty played here.
Sadly, they ended up short, losing 3-2 in game 5, but they didn't let that defeat their high spirits, commenting that it was one of their best efforts, plus silencing the critics (well, most). That memorable game may be the last pro hockey game in Flint, as their future hangs in the balance. Let's hope they're back so we can continue to cheer them on.
In other news, we proudly welcome a new staff member, Kim Zavicar, recent Eastern Michigan grad...she helped out with filming of the IHL Turner Cup Finals game 3, did an excellent job. She brings extensive experience in video production and post-production, will be a valuable team member. We look forward to working with her on future projects.
Our future projects include the Carman H.S. Class of 1980 reunion in July, should be an exciting event. A wedding in Frankenmuth should also be--summertime is the best time for weddings, many couples will be tying the knot and building a great life together. We wish all current and soon-to-be married couples the best of luck.
That's it for now, stay tuned for future details.
