Victoria HarbourCats | HarbourCats Now Taking Reservations for 2021 Upper Deck and Third Base Party Deck Areas

Published

on

We don’t know what we don’t know, but what we DO know, is that when we are given permission to play, we will play and we want fans to be ready to play along with us!

February 12, 2021

VICTORIA, BC – As we wait to see what happens in the next couple of months and for, hopefully, the full go-ahead to play baseball at Wilson’s Group Stadium in 2021, we are proceeding optimistically and are making plans for the season, so that we are ready to play when it is time to safely play.

And we want you and your group to come and play with us and celebrate a return to HarbourCats baseball!

To that end, when we get the go-ahead, we expect that our two unique group party areas, the Strathcona Rooftop Third Base Party Deck and the Wilson’s Group Upper Deck Experience, will be in high demand.

To be ready for that and to make sure you and your group have a chance to join us when we return, we are now taking reservations for both group areas for the proposed 2021 season.

We need to do this now, so that if we happen to receive short notice that we can play, for example in mid-May, we are ready to go, rather than rushing to get those areas reserved and everyone ticketed at the last minute.

A list of available dates can be found below for each area (note some dates already taken by groups who had reserved dates in 2020).

Reserve your group now so you don’t miss out on the return of HarbourCats baseball!

The Strathcona Rooftop Third Base Party Deck

Please note, as in past years, a non-refundable $500.00 deposit is required to hold your date.  This is then applied to your final total and invoice, closer to the event, once we determine final numbers, food costs, etc.  Full payment is usually required at that time, usually two weeks prior to the event.

Your deposit also guarantees you a spot for 2022, should we need to make any cancellations to the schedule due to any continuing COVID-19 protocols.

All dates and group bookings above are subject to change pending any relevant COVID-19 health protocols or decisions that are made between now and the start of our 2021 season.  Also, in the event that we are required to enforce and implement socially distanced occupancy in our group areas as part of this, we will advise of this accordingly and adapt with you as needed to accommodate your group as we can, or alternatively move you to a date in 2022 when restrictions are relaxed.

More information on our group party areas can be found on our web site at https://harbourcats.com/group-party-deck-options/

To book your spot, or for more information on any of the HarbourCats 2021 group party deck options, please contact Christian Stewart, Assistant General Manager, Ticketing and Media via e-mail (chris@harbourcats.com) or phone 778-265-0327 (office).

Office hours through February are Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm.

Help Us Name Our New Canine Friend

Published

on

Our newest friend is dreaming of full stands at Norbrock Stadium.

The newest member of the Kamloops NorthPaws is dreaming of full stands today, on what was supposed to be our inaugural home opener.

This large brown and white canine was adopted from the BC SPCA Kamloops & District Branch to keep us company leading up to our first season at Norbrock Stadium next summer.

This quiet doggo is very playful and loves to make new friends.  This dog is very well-trained and can shake a paw, roll over, play fetch in the outfield and even walk on two legs.

Our new companion has been settling in and has already been spotted bounding through the outfield, dancing in the bleachers, and chasing geese and marmots around Mac Island. Although puzzled by the lack of fans to play with, this friendly canine is excited to explore the Kamloops region this summer.

Keep your eyes out for your chance to meet our new friend this summer, and when you do, please be gentle and don’t play too… ruff.

The new pup does not yet have a name and we need your help. Send us your best, creative ideas.

Western Canadian Baseball League ramping up plans for all-Canadian season

Published

on

Lethbridge, AB – In light of the Alberta government’s re-opening plans unveiled on Wednesday, the Western Canadian Baseball League is closing in on some key dates for its upcoming season.

After listening to the announcement, WCBL president Kevin Kvame met with governors to discuss the next steps.

“We have been in close contact with government and health officials since we announced our intentions for an all-Canadian season in March,” Kvame said. “With today’s announcement, we’re extremely excited by the possibilities that are on the horizon for this summer.”

It’s expected that the season will begin on June 18 with the Okotoks Dawgs visiting the Lethbridge Bulls while the expansion Sylvan Lake Gulls host the Edmonton Prospects.

“We will begin the season with a limited number of fans in the stands, as per guidance from officials,” Kvame commented. “We also anticipate increasing that capacity in late-June or early-July, depending on hospitalizations and vaccination rates.”

A tentative schedule is expected to be released over the next week, with the plan for playoff semi-finals August 16-18 and the championship series to be held August 20-22.

He adds the league and its teams will continue to exercise diligence throughout the summer and adhere to all provincial guidelines as they are changed and adopted.

“We’re just excited to get back on the field and provide a great summer of baseball for our talented Canadian players,” Kvame concluded. “We’re also excited for our fans, who we applaud for standing by us as we’ve been planning this season.”

Stay tuned to the Western Canadian Baseball League’s website http://westerncanadianbaseballleague.ca/ and social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for further updates on this upcoming season.
