Slo-pitch returns to RAP, and kids free weekend!
For immediate release
Tuesday, March 28
VICTORIA, B.C. – Anyone who knows Peninsula Co-op knows they are all about community. Same goes for the Victoria HarbourCats – which is why a few events this summer should get everyone’s attention.
First, The Wilson’s Group Stadium at Royal Athletic Park will welcome back top slo-pitch teams for two great events – to a facility that was a staple for local leagues until the early 2000s. A special evening with the Greater Victoria Mixed Slo-Pitch Association (GVMSA) on Wednesday, May 31 will feature two games, starting at 6:35pm, with the teams and players treated like HarbourCats for a night, with full game production, food options, and more. Tickets for this event are just $10.00 for all seating areas and can be purchased on-line HERE, or available at the gate. Tickets are included for all HarbouCats season ticket holders.
Then, on Monday, June 5, in the half-hour leading up to the HarbourCats game vs. the Walla Walla Sweets (tickets available here), the top bashers in the GVMSA will showcase their power in a home run derby – both these events sponsored by Peninsula Co-op and PenCo Liquor.
Then, a great weekend for the kids – all kids aged 12 and under are admitted FREE for the series July 21, 22 and 23, featuring the Coquitlam Angels, and all Peninsula Co-op members can gain entry for just $10, with further Co-op member (JOIN HERE!) discounts at the merchandise tent.
Peninsula Co-op also brings back the oh-so-fun annual Special Olympics game, set for Thursday, July 13, with the Special O players showing their talents on the field before the HarbourCats take on the Port Angeles Lefties. (tickets available here)
“We have a lot of fun working with our partners to come up with great ways to involve the community, and that’s definitely the case with Peninsula Co-op,” said HarbourCats GM Christian Stewart. “It’s great to be aligned with them on ways to engage people and bring the community together.”
