Ducks Tickets At Costco

The Atlantic League champion Long Island Ducks announced that they have teamed up with COSTCO this season to present the “Long Island Ducks Fan Pack.” This offer, for COSTCO shoppers exclusively, combines tickets and team apparel for the first time in one convenient package, all at a discounted price.

“The Ducks and COSTCO are excited to team up to offer a great value for fans,” says Ducks president and general manager Michael Pfaff. “This package exhibits the natural synergy between our brands and our desire to offer value to customers.”

Each “Long Island Ducks Fan Pack” comes with a voucher redeemable for two box seats to any 2013 Ducks game at Bethpage Ballpark, subject to availability. The package also includes a voucher good for one official locker room championship t-shirt, the same one worn by the Ducks after winning the 2012 Atlantic League championship, and one Ducks baseball cap. All of this is included for just $39.99, a savings of up to 39% off the box office and Waddle In Shop price.

Fans can purchase this exciting offer at all five COSTCO locations on Long Island, including Commack, Holbrook, Melville, Nesconset and Westbury. All you need to do is pick up a “Long Island Ducks Fan Pack” voucher at the Ducks display inside COSTCO and bring it to the register. There, you will receive a ticket voucher, redeemable at the Bethpage Ballpark box office, and a merchandise voucher, redeemable at the Waddle In Shop at Bethpage Ballpark.

The Long Island Ducks are members of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and play their home games at Bethpage Ballpark. Opening Day is April 26. For further information, call (631) 940-DUCK or visit www.liducks.com.

What Thanksgiving Means In Mineola

Thanksgiving is a holiday, a festival, celebration and food fest. Tradition says the first Thanksgiving feast was celebrated by pilgrims and Native Americans back in 1621 to give thanks for their harvest after a harsh winter. Over a century later, George Washington, the nation’s first president, issued a Thanksgiving proclamation in 1789.

 

Fast forward to 21st century—the modern day Thanksgiving has come a long way since then. What has not changed however is the shared elaborate meal consumed with family and  friends in the same spirit of celebration and giving thanks for the blessings.

Winthrop University Hospital employee Jeffrey Brenner, a hyperbaric technician with the Life Support Technologies group in Mineola, recently received the American Heart Association’s prestigious Louis J. Acampora Heart Saver Award at a dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club. The award is named for a Long Island teenager who succumbed to a sporting injury that is understood to have been preventable if a cardiac medical device had been immediately on-scene and applied. 

 

“I hope that I have made a real difference in my town and the world around me to help prevent death and improve the quality of people’s lives” said Brenner.


Sports

After consecutive seasons of finishing runner-up in the men’s golf Player of the Year for the Skyline Conference, Christian Bleck of St. Joseph’s took home first place in a rather unlikely turn of events. 

 

After a herniated disc caused the Chaminade High School alum to miss every event after the first week of the season until the conference tournament, Bleck returned—without even having the luxury of practicing a full 18 holes—and competed with the best players the conference has to offer. 

Cross-Country Crowned Champs

The Mineola Mustang boys cross-country team won the division 4A championship recently at Bethpage State Park.  This is the first championship for the program since 1974, ending a 40-year championship drought. 

 

Mineola defeated Seaford, who also entered the undefeated in division competition, 38-20.  Overcoming rain and high winds throughout the race, many Mustangs ran personal records for the 5K in route to the victory.
