Guy Perry is wrapping up his 18 year in his career as the public address announcer for the Mallards.

“As soon as I got started in it I said you know what I want to do this until I die or until I can’t,” said Perry.  “The appeal today is that number one I love the game and I would love to see this level, I love to see the guys that are trying to get better and go into better opportunities. I really like the fans here they are very responsive.”

Perry said that through the years he has acknowledged his obligation to educate people on the game. He has enjoyed revving up the crowd and loves the natural enthusiasm of the fans.

A word of caution from Perry to future announcers is to keep in mind that it’s a lot of work.

The Annual Night of Champions is Saturday, April 6, 2013 at Stony Creek in Moline. The night will include videos, the announcement of Hall of Faith winner, and they will be giving out scholarship money to local seniors.
