Food, fair, and fun highlight September, along with new front office staff members
Bakersfield, Calif. – As the new season rapidly approaches, the Condors are offering more great incentives to get folks to join the ranks of ticket plan holders. September is the final month before the drop of the puck in Condorstown, so act now and make sure to reserve your seats for the 2010-11 season, as good locations are being swooped up daily.
From Sept. 1 through Sept. 30, purchase a new Weekender Plan or Full Season Ticket Plan and receive $25 per seat in food coupons to be used at various Condors partners’ restaurants. This means the purchase of four season tickets will earn you $100 in free food! Weekender Plans include 28 regular season games (all Friday, Saturday and Sunday home games). Purchase a smaller plan and receive $10 in food coupons per seat. The Weekender and Full Season plans also both include the preseason game against Las Vegas, the ECHL All-Star Classic, held in Bakersfield, and the first four home playoff games.
But that’s not all…the deals get even sweeter with four tickets to the Kern County Fair included with any Condors ticket plan. The f air begins on Sept. 22 and continues through Oct. 3. Dirt bike racing, wrestling, turkey races, and select live concerts are all included with your tickets to the fair. To get more information on the Kern County Fair, click here.
As a final cherry-on-top, all ticket orders will be entered into a drawing to win free jerseys! One All-Star jersey and one Minnesota Wild jersey will be raffled away. All of those who renewed their ticket plan from last season will be entered into the drawing as well.
