Bakersfield, Calif. – The Condors promotional schedule has been announced, with the second half of the schedule being rounded out in addition to the unique promos introduced last week.
From January through the end of the regular season, giveaways dominate the promotional lineup. On Saturday, Jan. 7 we’ll give away 50 custom Condors Flip-Cams, and with that, welcome fans to enter a Fan of Condorstown video contest. Jersey Cooler (left) giveaway is Friday, Jan. 13 – perfect for bringing your lunch to school or work, or for keeping a 6-pack of your favorite beverage refreshing and cool. The next night, Jan. 14 we’ll give away Condors caps. On top of the cap giveaway, if you book a group of 20 or more to sit in the lower level that night, you and your companions could actually go home with TWO different Condors caps, as a part of the Condors group special!
The giveaways continue on Friday, Jan. 27 with Toothbrush Giveaway for the kids. Then Saturday, Feb. 11 is Youth Jersey Giveaway Night, which is always one of the most popular nights of the season. Back by popular demand this season is Bobblehead Night on Friday, Feb. 24, and for the first time in Condors history, adults will be able to get the Bobbleheads as well! On Saturday, Feb. 25, test out your green thumb with Palm Tree Giveaway. And March giveaways include the hugely popular Skateboard Decks on the 16th and Street Hockey Stick & Puck Sets on the 30th.
Visitors to Condorstown in the second half of the season include Spider-man on Friday, Jan. 6, the ZOOperstars on Saturday, Jan. 28, and a popular cartoon character to be announced on Mar. 31.

“What can we say?” implored Condors President Matthew Riley. “How could anyone in their right mind NOT want to attend these games and go home with some of the coolest stuff on Earth? Or meet some of the coolest superheroes or celebrities? And we haven’t even talked about the actual hard-hitting hockey games themselves!”
