5 Things


By Cassie Gage, OKC Barons on 11/14/2013

Planning on attending the Oklahoma City Barons games this weekend? Here are the five things you need to know.

What is the parking situation?
There are concerts both nights at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Please refer to your parking booklet to know which parking garage you should park in. If you do not have a booklet, parking is available at the Cox Convention Center garage, Santa Fe parking garage and the Main Street parking garage, as well as other surface lots throughout the area. Check the Parking OKC website for more information.

What are the promotions for this weekend?
Friday night is Barons Night with $2 beer and $1 hot dogs from 6-8 p.m. Following the game, fans have a chance to win a turkey during the annual Turkey Shoot. Everyone is invited on the ice for a chance to shoot a puck into a goal to win an 8-10-pound turkey from Schwab’s. To participate in the Turkey Shoot, you must register at the Fan Relations table on the upper concourse.
Saturday marks the return of our Drive Away Every Saturday promotion. One lucky fan drives away in a brand-new Honda Civic. The first 2,000 fans through the door receive a Barons calendar.
Saturday is also Faith and Family night. Join Stacey Bauman from Hockey Ministries International for a devotion following the game. Our postgame autograph session will take place in front of The Edge on the upper concourse. The players scheduled to sign autographs are Kale Kessy, Travis Ewanyk, Matt Ford, Ben Eager, Brad Hunt and Brandon Davidson. Players signing autographs may change without notice.
When do doors open?
Season seat holders may enter the arena at 5:45 p.m., while doors open for the general public at 6 p.m. Season seat holders may access the Blue Line Club beginning at 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday’s menus can be viewed here.

Are there any specials being offered at The Edge?
Yes! Season seat holders get an additional 10-percent off at The Edge on Friday and Saturday nights. Be sure to follow the Barons on Instagram for an exclusive offer from The Edge this weekend!
Who are the Barons playing?
The Abbotsford Heat make a second visit to the Cox Convention Center this year. The Heat split with the Barons in October with OKC wining 4-3 on Oct. 18 and the Heat taking a 2-1 decision in a shootout on Oct. 19.
