Stinger In-Game Deliveries

Who could think of a better way to enjoy your special occasion than spending it at a Blue Jackets hockey game?  Have Stinger stop by and wish someone a Happy Birthday, Anniversary, or Congratulations and make sure everyone at the game knows you're celebrating!

Stinger Package ($75):

Stinger will stop by your seats during the first period to bring a Blue Jackets gift package to celebrate your special occasion. We will commemorate the event by snapping a digital photo of Stinger and the recipient that will be emailed to you afterwards.

Stinger will interact with the party guests, pose for a picture, and make sure everyone in the crowd knows your celebrating, but when play resumes Stinger must return to the concourse. He will also put the special person's name in lights on the top ring of the Dispatch Media Center, during the first intermission. There are only a limited number of Stinger's packages available per game. Reservations are on, first come, first served basis. If you have a special gift you would like to include in Stinger's gift package please reserve in advance. The gift must be received at the arena by noon the day of the game.

Name in Lights Package ($25):

There are four Dispatch Media Center messages available: "Happy Birthday", "Congratulations", "Happy Anniversary", and "Welcome". Messages are limited solely to the persons first and last name and they will be on the top ring of the Dispatch Media Center during the first intermission.

Other Details:

- All requests must be received 24 hours prior to game day.
- Fans are encouraged to bring a camera (still photos only - no video!!) to take their own pictures of Stinger and the "Name in Lights" message.
