June (Storm Promotions Are) Bustin’ Out All Over
This my monthly public service announcement on this season’s promotions coming to The Diamond, this time for the month of June.
Since last month’s post, I noticed a few people on Twitter had made their first trip to Lake Elsinore to see the Storm. Granted, they were up there on days that there wasn’t anything particularly special going on, but that doesn’t matter. I’m taking full credit for their trips.
I’d be remiss to not mention Dallas‘ Stormcasts from Lake Elsinore, available on iTunes, Google Play, and everywhere else you happen to consume the Kept Faith podcasts.
Having said that, here comes the Storm’s June promotions:
Hispanic Heritage Weekend
Friday, June 1st to Sunday June 3rd
Join us as we celebrate the Hispanic culture with unique in-game promotions, deals and more!
A little surprised they didn’t do this last month for Cinco de Mayo weekend. But, then again, that’s pretty much just an American faux-liday (like St. Patrick’s Day) so it shouldn’t be all that surprising.
Thunder’s 18th Birthday
Saturday, June 2nd
Celebrate the Storm’s lovable green dog, Thunder, as he turns 18! Join him and many of his mascot friends for a birthday to remember!
Wouldn’t this actually be Thunder’s 126th birthday? You know, in dog years?
This is one of those promotions that the Storm do a really good job with. It’s like a mini Comic-Con every year, all focused around baseball.
Friday, June 15th
Come dressed as your favorite superhero for ticket discounts and enjoy a superhero-themed night of baseball!
Black Trooper Hat Giveaway
Saturday, June 16th
I’d much rather have this than a Star Wars-themed bobblehead that I can only get with a special ticket only available for purchase online. Just sayin’.
Sunday, June 17th
Join us for a look at some of our all-time favorite video games with this Gamer-themed game! Enter our raffle to benefit the San Diego Blood Bank for a chance to win a Playstation 4!
The Big Lebowski Night
Thursday, June 28th
They’ve got good burgers at In-N-Out, which is just down the road from The Diamond. And I don’t think I’m out of my element saying that.
#EyesOn25 Social Media Night #2
25 lucky fans will be chosen via a Storm Twitter social media contest to participate in a unique behind-the-scenes Storm game experience!
For the first one last month, they had meet-and-greets with a bunch of players and trivia contests on Twitter. So if you get picked for this month, expect more of the same.
Giveaways and themed nights are fun enough, but the Storm do something every home game. Each day of the week has either discounted tickets, food & drink specials, autographs, or post-game fireworks. Sometimes all of the above.
Salute to Soldiers Sunday Fundays
Bark ‘N Brew Mondays
What are you waiting for? Get your butts out to Lake Elsinore. Don’t make me have to tell you again.
Even though I will. A month from now. I can pretty much guarantee it
