"I have nothing but good to say about how well the Men's Mac league is run. I've been playing in it for 5 or 6 years now and the competition has gotten better every year. The league is well run and very organized. It's one of the few competitive Men's league left in Lansing and that is a testament to how well it is run and the level of officiating. Mark Sanford does a great job making sure information is sent out on time and people remain informed" - Jim Richards, Total Security
