There are always “thousands” of referees at Winnipeg Blue Bomber games over the course of the season. And on Tuesday, April 12th at the Pinnacle Club- the challenge will be on to see if some of the Blue and Gold’s most ardent supporters are as smart as the men in stripes. The Bombers are inviting their season ticket holders and corporate partners to me part of “You Make the Call”.
The Canadian Football League’s Senior Vice President of Football, Glen Johnson, will lead invited guests of the Winnipeg Football Club through a series of real CFL scenarios using interactive technology. Participants will have the opportunity to weigh in on whether they see a penalty or infraction on the play.
“We had great feedback about this event last year from our season ticket members and corporate partners,” said President and CEO Wade Miller. “These two exclusive events offer fans the chance to step into the shoes of a CFL referee to try their hands at making the calls.”
Season Ticket Members can sign up for this event at http://ow.ly/ZaxxG. Corporate partners will receive an email with further information and registration instructions.
The very next night on Wednesday, April 13th the Blue Bombers will host the 2016 Fan Forum, also at the Pinnacle Club. The doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the forum begins at 7:00 p.m. with General Manager Kyle Walters, Head Coach Mike O’Shea, and President and CEO Wade Miller expecting to be “grilled” about the coming season. All fans are welcome to this event, but seating is limited.
