PRESS RELEASE – The Waterloo Bucks, members of the Northwoods League, have announced the promotional schedule for their 17th season of play.  With 35 home games at renovated Riverfront Stadium in 2011, the Bucks will bring affordable family entertainment to the Cedar Valley.

The Bucks will open the season at home on Saturday, June 4 versus the Eau Claire Express.  First pitch will be 6:35 pm with gates opening at 5:00 pm for Happy Hour featuring $2 beer until 6:00 pm.  The first 1,000 fans will receive a Bucks Magnet Schedule powered by AmericInn Lodge & Suites, Gubbels One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, and Karen’s Print-Rite.  Angry Cedar Brewing Co. will be on hand to provide samples and prizes, and to help kick off the 2011 season, there will be a post-game Fireworks Extravaganza powered by Brite 95.3 KQMG.

For the 12th consecutive season, each Monday home game will be a Buck Night.  With a total of seven Monday games, each Buck Night will consist of $1 beer, $1 hot dogs, and $1 popcorn as well as $1 admission with an admission coupon from participating sponsors and select Radio Group stations.

For the seventh year in a row, the Bucks will run the Thirsty Thursday promotion that will be powered by The Pump Haus Pub & Grill.  Each of the three Thursday games at Riverfront Stadium will feature $2 beer and $1 fountain soda.
