If you've been anywhere in the Midwest over the last few months you know we've had our share of nasty weather. Well, as the calendar starts saying spring is not quite here, but getting close, we get antsy. Restless, if you will, for kinder temperatures and outdoor activities that get us off the couch and moving our bodies. This is basically the climate for the month of March. Still enough cold weather to frustrate you but glimpses of warmer weather that has you thinking about being outside and playing around. This is how we all feel - and its no different for Hoopie. What? What's that you say? Who's Hoopie? How quickly we forget, my friends. Hoopie, of course, is the mascot for our big fun spring kickoff event, held in conjunction with the MHSAA High School Basketball State Semi-Finals and Finals, March Magic Hoopfest! Hoopie has just been hanging around with nothing to do since we wrapped up Hoopfest last year. So needless to say he is bored to tears and ready for action. See what happens when we went to his place to let him know its almost time for the big event! A bunch of fun basketball skill stations let you play around-the-world, three point shoot out, slam dunk, bounce house for the kids and much more. Get to March Magic Hoopfest, Hoopie is ready, are you?!
