KALAMAZOO, MI -- The Midwest Auctioneers Roundup continues to gain notoriety across the country and this year, it’s has catapulted itself to new and exciting heights!

The Midwest Auctioneers Round Up will take place on June 17-18 in Kalamazoo, MI.

Some of the fun events scheduled include: 

Golf Outing

The 18 hole Prairies Golf Club in Kalamazoo, Michigan features all the hallmarks of Michigan golf.  We have been serving West Michigan with fantastic golf food the golfer’s favorite beverages since 1912.  This is a “player friendly” course with plenty of challenge for the experienced golfer, yet enjoyable for everyone including the beginning golfer.  A terrific course, clubhouse, and staff for big outings or small gatherings. The course has mature maple/oak trees lining its crisp fairways which are defined by a thick cut of prairie grass rough. The terrain is hilly so expect uneven lies and difficult approach shots.  Our club is truly a hidden gem that you will enjoy every time you play.  The Prairies is conveniently located on the thriving west side of Kalamazoo.  Pricing: $50 per person (Sign up on the registration form).  Price includes 18 holes of golf w/ cart and lunch at the turn.  Golf Games, prizes & fun!  

*Please arrive by 8:30AM to be ready to start on time.

Clay Shoot

All clay targets were made to be broken.  You can help ensure that truism is realized. Gun River Skeet and Trap Club is focused on shotgun sports only, this is our mission.  Breaking clay targets is our it yours? Clays are inherently sinister and devious in their basic nature.  Please join us in the crusade for perfectly broken targets every round.  Are you up for it? Please come out and embrace the fun of breaking clays.  They have Trap, Skeet, 5 Stand and Wobbles!  (Note: No early shooting is allowed.)
