Join us for the SatelliteGuys Get Together Thursday July 11th - Saturday July 13th in Ionia, Michigan!

Join us for part of it or all of it... it's up to you!

Here is the schedule as it stands now... (Subject to change we are still finalizing the schedule)

Fun Starts Thursday Night as we kick things off by celebrating WION Night at the LampLight Grill - 314 West Main Street - Ionia MI. - Great Dinner Specials plus 92 cent draft beers to celebrate SatelliteGuys Adopted Hometown Station WION Radio!

Friday Morning you can join us or tune in to WION Radio from 7AM to 9AM as we will be part of Jim Carlyle's Round Table show! WION Radio is located at 1150 Haynor Road in Ionia. After the show, SatelliteGuys in attendance will get a tour of the WION Studios and see what makes WION one of the best sounding AM Stereo radio stations in the United States!

At 3:OO PM we head over to the Historic Ionia Theater which was built in 1931! The Ionia Theater houses two theaters and was recently remodeled and upgraded with the best digital sound and picture available! I am hoping before the show starts (movie yet to be determined) we can get a tour of the theater and see how it all works!. At 4:00 PM it is showtime as you enjoy the movie with us!

After the movie we will have some dinner then head over to South M66 for America's Newest Family Attraction, Danny Boy's Drive In Theater! Danny Boy's was recently featured on the front page of USA Today and offers great family fun like you remember when you were a kid. Before showtime we hope to get a tour of Danny Boy's Setup so you can see how a modern (in this case BRAND NEW) Drive In Theater operates! Then when it gets dark its showtime on Danny Boy's Monster Big Screen!

On Saturday Morning, SatelliteGuys members are invited to take a walk in the fight against cancer in Ionia's "Relay For Life" we are planning on doing a lap or two at the High School in support of the Relay for Life. In addition any SatelliteGuys member who can't attend and would like to help in the fight against cancer WION Radio has setup a special website where you can pledge your support. The website is http://i1430.com/relay.html and in this website you can vote using your money to your favorite WION personality. Again donations for the Relay For Life can be made at http://i1430.com/relay.html

After that we have been invited by the Ionia Historic Society to check out a few Historic Ionia Properties. More details on this will be coming.

For those who can only make it on Saturday we are also planning another tour of the WION studios.

Then Saturday Night we will all gather at the Lamplight Grill for the official SatelliteGuys get together. Where we will have food, drinks, fun, prizes and we also will be celebrating the birthdays of SatelliteGuys co owners Eva Greczkowski and the one man wrecking machine... known at the Iceberg. (I hope Iceberg can make it!) :)

We are asking people who are coming to let us know in advance, as we want to have enough prizes for everyone in attendance! :)

Now if your coming from out of town probably the best place to stay is the newly renovated American Inn you can find out more at http://www.innionia.com/

We hope to see as many SatelliteGuys there as possible! Its going to be fun! And if you have ever been to one of our other SatelliteGuys Get Togethers you know... you never know whats going to happen! :D

We look forward to meeting YOU in Ionia, MI!

I would love to attend, but I am traveling up to Livonia for a family reunion in mid-August, and I just took 3-weeks off in May for knee surgery. Too bad because I've been Ionia...just don't remember any details since I played a lot of youth hockey throughout the state and we took a lot of family drives just to get away from the rat-race: pick sweet corn, strawberres, cherries, blueberries, apples, and just see the sites. Plus, my close friends were a couple years older so I drank at a lot of beer at frat house parties while I was still in high school. No wonder I don't recall any details. ;)

Unfortunately, with our closing(s) scheduled between 7-15 and 7-25, I'm going to have to miss. :(

Maybe next time.

The look I got from the wife when I said something about coming up was priceless I guess I forgot the in-laws are in town that week.

So I'm rolling out early (leave at 6am) on Saturday should get there around noon. Got my room at American Inn and Suites Ionia.

Any idea what time the 2nd studio tour will be at?

Would love to, but a bad week to try. Any plans for another CT get-together, Scott?

Things here in CT are up in the air due to the construction / remodeling of my house. I do want to do something but things keep getting moved. The wife and kids are going on a cruise in August and I am staying home just to take care of things here. :)
