Little Lake, MI – April 20th, 2016 – New host Mike Plourde was live from Little Lake with another edition of the ModelTowners Home Team Show! He brought you the scoop on everything ModelTowners from the famous Throttle Bar & Grill in Little Lake, MI. Mike had an delicious dinner of their famous broasted chicken, and it even included coleslaw, potato wedges, and even a roll!
Mike’s guest on the show today was the one and only Athletic Director at Gwinn High School, Rob Soyring, joined Mike to discuss sports in Gwinn. Their first topic was, of course, what it’s like to be an athletic director and what challenges it poses. Also, Mike and Rob talked about how weather can have a big part to play with high school athletics, especially in the Upper Peninsula. Rob talked with Mike about how the local community influences high school athletics, and off-season training for high school athletes even made it into the discussion! One of the last topics on today’s show was the recent improvements to the Gwinn High School. Gwinn has recently seen an increase in bond funding, and that has allowed them to schedule improvements throughout the school system. Those proposed improvements wouldn’t just benefit Gwinn High School, they would serve to bring traffic through Gwinn. That would result in increased revenue for businesses in Gwinn!
