No snow, but Rotary Snow Jam is a go

Despite the lack of snow, the first-ever Spring Lake Rotary Club Snow Jam is a go.

The event runs from 2-9 p.m. Saturday at Spring Lake’s Central Park, north of M-104 and west of Fruitport Road.

The cross-country skiing, snow sculpture and ice hockey contests will likely be canceled, but Rotarians are meeting Friday to brainstorm possible alternative events.

The 5 p.m. Spring Lake vs. Grand Haven resident hockey tournament could end up being a Rollerblade hockey or soccer contest, according to Johnson.

Whether it’s sunny or snowy, a heated beer tent will be open throughout the Snow Jam, with live music by the Knicknacks and the Vincent Hayes Project.

“The weather is not cooperating with our Snow Jam, so there are a few things that could go to ‘Plan B,’” Johnson said. “But the one thing we know will happen is the golf challenge.”

Participants pay $10 per try to drive a golf ball 90 yards for a hole-in-one. The winner will receive an all-terrain four-wheel vehicle from Bill’s Sport Shop in Spring Lake. All participants receive a free sleeve of golf balls.

Children’s arts and crafts will also go on without snow. Hot dogs and hamburgers are available for a nominal fee.
