News Release

VICTORIA B.C. - Those who have been to a HarbourCats game know that Military, and first responders, are near and dear to our hearts.

From FORCES FRIDAYS special game offers that have become, thanks in large part due to the initiative of Galaxy Motors, a big part of the team's summer schedule, to the touching moment at all home games when a member of the military is recognized thanks to Wilson's Group of Companies, military is a key part of the HarbourCats experience - just as the military is a vital part of the Greater Victoria community.

The Victoria HarbourCats, Galaxy Motors and Wilson's Transportation are pleased to announce that NOVEMBER IS MILITARY MONTH.

n Until the end of November, all service people (active, reserve, veteran, cadet) and their families will receive two-for-one pricing on all SEASON TICKETS.

"This is important for us to do, and continuing to focus recognition on our Canadian Forces is key to our core values," said Jim Swanson, Managing Partner with the Victoria HarbourCats. "There is no better night to be at a HarbourCats game than a sunny Friday evening, when so many military members and their families enjoy a night at the park. And there is no better moment than the reception given to a military member when we introduce them between innings."

This is available until the end of November, by contacting the team office - 101-1814 Vancouver St., or 778-265-0327, email jim@harbourcats.com

NEW MERCHANDISE NOW IN

The HarbourCats are starting to stock the shelves for Christmas with some new hat, t-shirt and knick-knacks arriving recently. Decorative Christmas balls, team mugs, lanyards and other items are due to arrive. The new Island Proud t-shirts, along with some ladies styles, are in the shop now and for sale.

WCL SCHEDULE

The West Coast League schedule is likely to be released next week, which will mean the HarbourCats will be able to sell individual tickets, and announce special events including fireworks games. Dates will also come available for groups to confirm 50-50 fundraising dates at Royal Athletic Park for 2018.

GREAT TEACHERS CONTEST

The HarbourCats continue to take nominations for the Great Teachers Contest, sponsored by Mayfair Optometric Clinic. The winner for October was Mr. Borich, who teaches a Grade 2 class at Eagle View Elementary, and his whole class will be our guests at the annual SCHOOL SPIRIT GAME in June, date TBA.

Each month until May, the HarbourCats will select a teacher, whose class will be guests of Mayfair Optometric Clinic at the team's annual School Spirit Game - a day-game in June, date to be announced when the West Coast League schedule is released, perhaps as soon as next week.

To nominate a great teacher, email a submission to greatteachers@harbourcats.com

SEASON TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE

The HarbourCats have seen an uptick in season ticket purchases, and as corporate partnerships are completed, the selection of season ticket locations and single-game walkup options is getting less and less. Seats in the Diamond Club, the two-year-old on-field section are sold out, but there remain available seats in the padded/served Campbell Real Estate Club Section, and in the Main Grandstand.
