United Methodist Men's Group of Bad Axe, Michigan

August 1, 2009, The Menís Group organized a trip to see the
Great Lakes Loons Baseball Team in Midland at the Dow Diamond.

It is a beautiful facility, parking was easy and there wasnít a bad seat in the park.
Access is very easy for people with limited walking or in wheelchairs.

There was a rain delay of about a hour then
our Bad Axe FUMC Mens Chorus sang the National Anthem.

The Great Lakes Loons lost to the Clinton LumberKings 5 to 2
Then there was a nice Fireworks display after the game.

We had 62 people affiliated with our Church attend the game!
It was held during a Faith & Family Day and it was a Wonderful Event!

The Dow Diamond Midland Loons Scoreboard Welcomes

The ballgame was delayed due to rain.
