FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Welcome Back My Friends to the Show that Never Ends!
74th– Annual Ultimate Sport Show – Grand Rapids to fill DeVos Place… And you’re invited!
Grand Rapids, MI (March 8, 2019) – Whether you’ve blessed us with your presence in the past, or, this is your first time, you’re invited… Yeah, you!
Now in its 74th year, the Ultimate Sport Show – Grand Rapids—the show that oozes with tradition, yet, has fresh experiences each and every one of its four full days—has passes for you to come, enjoy and promote the show.
Over four acers of some of the finest fishing and hunting gear, boats, RV’s and more? Yep! The DeVos Place, downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, will be bursting with it. And, oh, so much more.
But don’t be afraid to fill others in on how they can get in for free on Thursday, March 14, as well – and that’s by bringing in at least six non-perishable food items for the 20th year of the MSAH Food Drive, hosted WLAV Mornings’ Tony Gates. Let folks know, too, if they are one of the first 500 through the doors on both Thursday and Friday, they’ll receive a free commemorative Dardevle spoon, while Saturday and Sunday a K & E Bass Worm will be placed in the palms of the first 250 in line.
Other highlights include the whimsical works of the Woodland Woodcarvers, and the masterpieces of the Michigan Taxidermists Association’s State Finals Competition displayed within the Grand Gallery Overlook.
In-between perusing all the outdoor gear and displays, patrons can also enjoy events like the DLW Timberworks Lumberjack Show, with their attention-grabbing thunder of high-powered chainsaws, axe-throwing, log-rolling and pole spar racing demonstrations that tell the history, hard work and sport of lumbering by hand with a fun yet nostalgic look at logging competitions of the early 1900’s. And then there’s the ever-popular Big Buck Night West, presented by Michigan Out-of-Doors Television show. Seating starts at 6:30 for this Thursday-night-only event p.m. in Ballroom D, with celebrity hosts Jimmy Gretzinger and Jenny Olson filming for an up-and-coming episode of Michigan Out-of-Doors.
And speaking of celebrities, there’s seminars galore on fishing, hunting, morel mushroom picking and more by the best of the best in all categories, such as Mark and Jake Romanack, Mark Martin, Joe Thomas, Dave Engel and Bill Bale, as well the likes of Denny Geurink, Seth McCullough, Jason Herbert, Tom Richardson, Len Jenkins and Theresa Maybrier.
Contact us and tickets will be placed in Will Call under your name. Take your time; stay all day; see it all. Tell everyone. You’re all invited. Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends…
