The Victoria HarbourCats (summer collegiate; West Coast League) are rolling out a new group area, as the team is installing a third base party deck.
Located just beyond third base, down the left field foul line, and extending partially into foul territory, the Strathcona Hotel-Rooftop Party Deck will put fans right in the middle of the action and provide a unique view of the game. Designed to be a casual space for mingling, socializing and watching baseball, the Strathcona Hotel-Rooftop Party Deck will accommodate 50-100 people. The deck can be reserved on a ticket only basis, or fans can bundle in food and drink options from the HarbourCats food truck vendors, Floyd’s Diner and Molly’s Fish and Chips. Prices (based on 50 people minimum, tickets only) begin at $1000 ($20 per person).
The HarbourCats are grateful to Grant Olson and the Strathcona Hotel and Rooftop Patio, the famous location with spectacular city views, for making this possible. Chinook Scaffolding will be erecting the deck, with HarbourCats assistant coach Troy Birtwistle, owner of TRB Construction, completing the work.
“With the double-decker bus along first base and now the group deck along the third base line, fans coming to games will have two very unique vantage points from which to watch a game,” said HarbourCats Co-Owner and Managing Partner Jim Swanson. “Fans on the Strathcona Hotel-Rooftop Party Deck will be just a short distance from third base and the opposing team’s dugout and will feel like they are part of the action.”
The Strathcona Hotel-Rooftop Party Deck will be sold primarily as a seating option for groups of 50 (minimum) up to 100, but may be opened for general admission seating for games where no group bookings, or partial group bookings are reserved. The deck will also have dedicated servers that can assist fans with their food and beverage purchases. Full fencing around the deck, and netting on the plate side, will keep people safe while also having them right in the action.
Both the Wilson’s Group Upper Deck Experience and the Strathcona Hotel-Rooftop Party Deck supplement the HarbourCats regular group seating options, where groups of 20 or more can receive discounted pricing on either general admission or premium reserved seating, with the options of bundling meal and drink options with their seats. Regular group seating prices begin at just $11 each for general admission seats.
