All Star Game information---Please READ!

***email from the whitecaps regarding all star tickets, and help from the fire***


First off, thanks for the email and wanting to support the Whitecaps. We appreciate you reaching out to us as we have a high level of respect for the Lugnuts and their affiliated partners. As for help, all we are asking for is some support this summer when baseball season rolls around!

In regards to the all-star game, our on-sale date for tickets is going to be Tuesday, March 4th at 10:00am. Do you have an estimated number of people you would be expecting to attend? Our group minimum is 20. And yes, we could make an accommodation and accept a booster club check as long as we received the check before the tickets went on sale.

Look forward to hearing back from you.


***I told him I would get him a number by feb 26th, so don can mail out the booster check. Do we want to do the 16.00 or 14.00 seats? Send me an email with your NAME and how many tickets you want by Monday Feb 24th, so I can pass along the info to the whitecaps and to don!! Thanks!!

Thank You, Meeting 9/12 and Upcoming Off Season News

I would like to thank everyone for their hard work this season! We had some of the best turn outs in a long time for our dinners. Once I get a copy of the 2014 schedule, I will be putting the *tentative* calendar together for our events for 2014. I am in contact with some other booster clubs in our league and trying to get a few new ideas that we can try to do for 2014. Hopefully I will hear from them all soon. To my shock, the WhiteCaps do NOT have a booster club. For the October meeting we will go over the schedule that I will be putting together so we can have some feedback. We will need to plan the golf outing this offseason so we can get sponsors and prizes. We will be shooting for May or June, depending on the schedule. Our next meeting will be Thurs 9/12 at Buddies in Holt at 6:30. I want to get a vote to see if we would like to have our October meeting there as well. I believe we will be voting on officers at the meeting. Before you know it, it will be March and we will be having our spring training warm up dinner and planning our welcome bags and first dinner with the team! Hope to see you all at the meeting on Thursday! Pictures from golf and last dinner will be posted soon!

7/31 Get away bags rescheduled and FW Update for 8/4

Nick called FW and due to scheduling complications we are not able to do the dinner with the team in FW, HOWEVER, we will be getting together on the morning of Sunday Aug 4th to make sack lunch bags for the team. They will be given to them after the double header in the lobby of the hotel. There will be a sign put up in the locker room on the 3rd or 4th stating that. Also a note will be given to the coach staff...this way the players wont go out to eat as the hotel is one block from the stadium and they do not ride the bus to and from the park to hotel. With that said the scheduled get away bags on 7/31, will be moved to 8/26 after the game. The final dinner is 8/25 and the get away bags now on 8/26 will be the final home even with the team. If you are interested in going to FW on the 4th, it is a double header and I will need names for the pass list! I should be at the next 8 home games so if anyone has questions they can email me or find me at the park!
