MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (WXYZ) - Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel was the first person to join 7 Action News anchor Stephen Clark for a game of foosball at the Mackinac Policy Conference.
In an effort to bring an extra element of fun to our coverage, the 7 Action News team brought a foosball table to Mackinac Island. You’ll see it through the week as we speak with some of Michigan’s movers and shakers.
Hackel spoke with our team about Macomb County’s role in the southeast Michigan region. Many of the conference attendees passed billboards touting Macomb County as they drove up I-75 on the way to Mackinac Island.
This was a quick game of foosball. Stephen Clark won 2-1.
The site of a foosball table at the Grand Hotel has attracted some attention.
“#MPC13 brings a lot of interesting things!” said the Grand Hotel on Twitter. “Never thought I'd see a foosball table in the Main Dining Room,” they posted.
