Rally for Laker Athletics to be held Oct. 6

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. – Laker Athletics is looking to establish a new tradition this week with a membership rally for Laker Club, the official support group of all Lake Superior State University athletic teams.

The public is invited to attend the rally, which begins with a social hour at 5 p.m. and a brief program at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 6, at the Sault Country Club.

“This is a great opportunity to meet some of our student-athletes who have been helped by the support of our members,” said Tom Coates, director of annual giving/athletic development at LSSU. “It’s also the place for everyone to visit with our coaches and learn more about the benefits of joining Laker Club.”

Laker Club originated years ago as a support group called the “Laker 100.” Fans of LSSU’s athletic program contributed $100 and in return received a jacket to show the community they were supporting the teams. Since then, Laker Club has evolved to include other benefits for those who donate funds that are earmarked for student grant-in-aid scholarship funding. Depending on the level, benefits can include hockey season tickets, GLIAC sports passes, preferred parking, a return of contribution insurance program, and more.

“Becoming a member of Laker Club is a great way to help us meet the growing challenge of fielding competitive Laker teams in all sports,” said Coates. “There are a lot of tangible benefits to joining, but many of our members feel that helping our student-athletes is the best.”

Thursday’s membership rally falls on the date normally reserved for Lake State After Hours, a social gathering held by the LSSU Alumni Association on the first Thursday of each month at Moloney’s Alley. This week, the Alumni Association is moving its gathering to the Sault Country Club to join the rally.
