"Lucas' down-to-earth, easy-to-talk-with kind of approach is extactly what we at NCTTA are looking for, and having worked with him already for almost a year, we know we have made the right decision. We had to unload a large number of specific sport equipment at a nearby storage area and he not once but twice helped us out. I don't know that I have ever had a CVB go-to bat for us like this before. My only regret is that we don't get to work with Lucas every year. Eau Claire is a special location since we have been here twice before. Our expectations were met but even more this time as Lucas went out of his way to get us grant money to pay for expenses. Here is something that maybe needs to be stated and sometimes isn't. Lucas "gets us". NCTTA is a small non-profit run by all volunteers. No paid staff in any capacity.  Lucas took the time and for that, we are very grateful.  He gets it and most importantly he gets us."

- Willy Leparulo (National Collegiate Table Tennis Association (NCTTA))


"Eau Claire and more specifically Lucas, have been a fantastic Host to the North American Fast Pitch Association (NAFA). We have been fortunate enough to have been hosted by Eau Claire in 2022 and 2023 for our men's Fast Pitch Softball World Series. In 2023 and 2024 Eau Claire is hosting our Eau Claire Classic Mens Fast Pitch invitational. Lucas and his staff are extremely responsive to our requests and our needs. For the past 2 years, Eau Claire has set the standard for Partnering with our Organization not only in terms of securing fields for our events but also in making sure all details were taken care of. The attention to detail has set the bar extremely high. We are going up the road to La Crosse this year for our World Series, I have expressed how high the bar has been set. We are looking forward to partnering with Eau Claire for future NAFA Events!!"
