2013 Events

The MiGCSA District Committees have been working hard to get the 2013 Event Calender completed. This is always a work in progress and the most up to date information is always available at Some of the venues for 2013 include Pilgrims Run, Arcadia Bluffs, Metamora Golf & Country Club, The Nightmare, The Emerald, and Egypt Valley Country Club. We also have some great education lined up for the Spring Management meetings in late February and early March in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Gaylord. A few highlights for those events are Dr. Frank Wong, Pat Jones, Lyne Tumlinson, Dr. Rob Golembiewski, Dr. Kevin Frank, Dr, Emily Merewitz and many more.

And on a personal note my wife and I had our first child on December 17th at 11:01 pm. Adalyn Grace Ikamas was 7 pounds, 2 ounces and 19 inches long. She was born via emergency C section but everyone is doing great.
