PHANTOMFEST RETURNS JULY 22nd IN GRAND HAVEN
West Michigan Phantom's biggest party of the year is set to return to Grand Haven township on Saturday, July 22, 2023. This party has become a great afternoon and evening event filled with fun and excitement as it allows our network teams to celebrate all things Phantoms. This year's event will again be held at Michelle and Ian's House with yard games and pool opening in the afternoon, with the main show beginning around 7:00pm. Absolute Entertainment and Mikey will once again be on-site to provide a great DJ show filled with karaoke and music for everyone. This year's Phantom show will be slightly different than those in the past as some new features and a redesigned video presentation will kick-start the evening's fun. Rumor on the street is that everyone's favorite goalie will include a rare-live comedy show similar to Saturday Night Live for everyone to experience. This years party will be BYOB. There will be plenty of room in the house to sleep after the party if needed, we do not want people driving home after the party in the event they have been drinking. As with the previous two years, we do ask everyone to bring a dish a pass to help with the food and snack program. We will have a sign-up sheet and what people are volunteering to bring made available closer to the party. Again, this year's party will take place on Saturday, July 22nd...we hope to see you there!
It is always amazing how fast the summer season progresses. The current season for both the Phantoms and Zombies will go into late August with the fall/winter season starting in late September. If you are a player interested in joining the Phantoms (Sunday nights at Walker Ice & Fitness), the Zombies (Wednesday/Friday nights at Walker Ice & Fitness) or the Lakeside Locomotives (Tuesday nights at Lakeshore Sports Centre in Muskegon) for the fall/winter season, please contact Kevin Wootton at firstname.lastname@example.org or message him on Facebook.
