Game Day is Saturday as we take on the York Lions at 135 Bristol Road, Newmarket. It is an aprox 3 hour drive.
Here is what our schedule for Saturday will look like:
The bus will arrive behind the gardens at 6:00 am, we will be leaving with or without players and coaches if you are not there by 6:30 am sharp (if we can get away sooner we will). We will be making a stop at the car pool lot in Powassan for pick up and drop off and Possibly Sundridge if any one needs a stop there as well. Let me know if you are using this option. We should arrive around 9:30 am as we are required 1-1.5 hours before the game. Kickoff is at 11:00 am and game will be done around 12:30 ish maybe 1. We will depart around 1:30-2 to watch a little bit of the JV game (they play after us at 1). We will make a quick stop at an enroute on the way home and expect to be back home by 6. So be sure to either send them with a lunch or send them with some cash to purchase something at the enroute.
As we are leaving early and arriving early please make sure your player has breakfast and snacks and drinks for the on the bus. Energy drinks are not allowed on the bus please. If they purchase them when we stop they will be asked to throw them out. Gatorade is good, just no energy drinks.
We will be updating the North Bay Bantam JV and SV Bulldogs facebook page, if you aren’t a member head over and get added. This is also where our photographers will post pictures of the games as well.
There are no change rooms at the Newmarket field. The cost to get in to the game is $5 per person 12 and under are free. No pets allowed. They have snacks, but no concession. They have some bleachers but space is limited so they said you may want to bring lawn chairs to be safe. We provide shared water bottles during the game and will be handing out jerseys this week as soon as they arrive.
