SEASON PASSES
For customers who purchased season passes, they will be valid for six events that were previously written on the passes. Round 1 was moved from June 14-15 to June 1-2. The Triple deals passes will be valid for 3 of the 6 events on the cards. The events of St-Croix are not on listed on these cards so they can’t be part of it.
