This week in Condorstown:
Tuesday, Sept. 13
Have you ever wanted to sing the National Anthem in front of thousands of people? Here is your chance! Auditions for National Anthem singers will take place on Tuesday from 4 to 6 p.m., at Rabobank Arena, located at 1001 Truxtun Ave. Individual singers and small groups are invited to audition for the chance to perform at our games during the season. The vast majority of anthem singers every season attend these tryouts, so if you are interested, it is strongly recommended you schedule a time and attend the tryout. Contact Brad Urbani at 324-PUCK (7825) ext. 210 in advance to sign up for a time slot.
The Condors are giving fans a great opportunity to test out potential seat locations during the Select-A-Seat event from 4 to 6 p.m., at Rabobank Arena, located at 1001 Truxtun Ave. The best available seats will be tagged for fans’ convenience, and Condors representatives will be on hand to escort fans throughout the arena. Plus, anyone that comes to look at seats at this event can enter to win four tickets to the Professional Bull Riders Tour, coming to Rabobank Arena Nov. 4 & 5.
Also, all Group Leaders are encouraged to attend this event to speak to their account rep and lock in dates for their group night. This will be a great time to get information on the Condors brand new glass suite or set up a fundraiser.
Everyone who purchases a ticket plan at the event will receive an exclusive tour of the locker and training rooms, plus a behind-the-scenes look at Rabobank Arena. In addition, free hot dogs, popcorn and soda will be provided for all fans attending the event. Any kids making the trip will have the chance to test their hockey skills in the inflatable slapshot booth set up outside the arena.
