The key to success is a variety of game options when your guests arrive. You can even invite your guests to bring a game of their own. Some game night favorites include Yahtzee, Jenga, Cranium, and a nice deck or two of cards.



Take a trip to the ice rink. With temperatures not warm enough to thaw, area ice rinks are still open for fun! Our northern Michigan members can enjoy the new Atlanta ice rink that opened recently, while southeastern Michigan members can find their closest ice rink here.
