To make up for the game that was canceled in Montreal it looks like Halifax will play host to Montreal which confirms several rumours I had heard about Montreal finishing off its schedule on the road.
The game is Sunday, March 29 at 2pm meaning that the final weekend will be a Montreal double header since the original season closer was supposed to be on March 28th, also against Montreal.
March 28th is now “Father/Son Day” which is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate heteronormative ideals of family as well as a chance to eat breakfast with Eric Crookshank and play in a father/son game on the court. Tickets are $50 for two, toss in an extra kid for $10. It doesn’t look like it has a presenting sponsor yet, though. You’d think they could turn it into Clearwater Father/Son Day or something similar.
No word yet on how season ticket holders will be treated, my guess is that it will be a situation where our seats are reserved until date X but that we’re still paying for tickets. I am just hoping that we get a discount ($5 off the face value?) but I don’t expect to get them for free.
I just found a press release that indicates that season ticket holders will be issued free tickets. Fantastic move since it ensures that that attendance is decent and rewards fans and restores some value to the season tickets. The Rainmen as an organization are nothing if not responsive to suggestions.
Just to be clear the press release was released at the same time as the update on the website – unfortunately I had just read the website notice which was short on details prior to making my original post. The Rainmen always planned to issue the tickets to season ticket holders and I may have made it sound like it was an afterthought.
