Broom Ball - sat 12/23  

(1999) The Cadillac crew assembles for the annual Christmas Broomball match on Johnson's frozen pond.  It took 4 hours to clear the snow from the ice for the one hour game.  The outside temperature at face off (7:00 p.m.) was a chilly -7 degrees Fahrenheit.  Brrrrrr.

The location:
The broom ball group knows this frozen pond as cold, hard, battleground rink for a game with 'no rules.' There is always lots of beers, brooms, chills, and spills. But really, this northern michigan spot is a famous petting zoo. 
"For a real commune with nature's creatures, visit Johnny's Fish and Game Park. Deer, goats and lambs gather round your feet and feed from your hand. They'll follow you like puppies through the park as you visit buffalo, llamas, horses, cows, kittens, raccoons and rabbits. Kids can cuddle the tame creatures, big and small, to their hearts' content. Johnny's private fish pond guarantees young anglers a catch. They provide the bait and poles all the kids do is throw in the line. They'll even fillet and wrap your catch. Open from May to September, this is one place you don't want to forget to bring your camera."  -insiders

However, this night, it will be the traditional game. Check back after the match for photos.
