Lumberjacks focus on the fans

The Muskegon Lumberjacks are pumping up the volume for their fans in many ways – some more literal than others.

The organization, in its inaugural season in the United States Hockey League, has paid close attention to the fans’ suggestions, and has already made great strides in order to make Lumberjacks games the premier entertainment option on the Lakeshore.

After an immense upgrade of the L.C. Walker Arena’s sound system during the offseason, the Lumberjacks have further enhanced it, adding thunderous subwoofers while maintaining clarity.

But that’s just the audio. The Lumberjacks have also expanded their brand-new video board’s capabilities. The jumbotron now boasts replay capability so that fans can get another look at the Lumberjacks’ prettiest goals and their most bone-crushing body checks.

Frontier Communications has been brought aboard and is implementing arena-wide Wi-Fi that can be accessed for free by all visitors of the arena.

For the fans’ convenience, six new credit card terminals have been added to the arena’s concession stands this season. After just one stand accepted credit cards last season, all three large stands – the Lumberjacks Café, Fury Café and Walker Café – all three permanent bars and the ice cream stand are plastic-friendly.

The Lumberjacks are proud to play a role in the development of great hockey players. But the organization also takes utmost pride in the best fans in the USHL, and wants to make sure they’re also the most entertained fans around.
