Weekend Preview - Week 5

posted 5 Oct 2017, 13:47 by john slater
The fifth weekend of regular season action for the Bracknell Bees sees them with a two game weekend.   Starting with a rare Saturday home game at The Hive versus Streatham IHC (6pm faceof) before the Bees head along the M4 to Cardiff to take on the Fire on Sunday (6pm face off).
With two wins from two games last weekend - an away 5-2 Cup victory in Basingstoke before a home league win, 6-2, over the Milton Keynes Thunder the Bees have now won three games straight and will be looking to continue their form this weekend.

Saturdays home match up is a leauge game and Streatham will prove a firm test for the Bees.  With four wins from their six league and cup games so far this season Coach Cornish has assembled and impressive looking line-up that will give anyone a solid opponent on any given night.   A good game should be expected from both sides in what is sure to be a tight and tense affair.

Sunday the Bees make the trip to Cardiff and will be facing a Fire team looking for their first points of the season, having played six matches and lost them all.   On their home ice however no team should be underestimated, especially a team looking for a turnaround in form and the Bees will need to stick to the task at hand to give them the chance to head back from Wales with the two points in the bag.

The Bees will want to keep their current run of form going in their two leagues games this week and we hope to see a good home support from the Bees fans and look forward to welcoming the Streatham IHC fans to The Hive and with that in mind we have some key points for new visiting fans to please note for Bees games:
  • There is an “away” section in Block 2 downstairs where away fans tend to congregate and sit together however you are welcome to purchase tickets through the rink reception on the match night or by calling 01344 789000 for seats in the upper balcony area.   You will need to specify at the time of purchase.
  • Most of the balcony blocks have a large amount of season ticket seats within them that are already reserved so please be aware of this when taking your seat, if you are sitting in a season ticket holder seat without the ticket for that seat you will be asked to move to the correct seat.
  • It should be noted too, that due to the license held by the rink, that although alcohol is sold in The Bees Knees bar it can only be taken out to the seated balcony area and is not permitted downstairs within the rink at all.
  • The rink is also a no smoking building so you will need to leave by the front door during period breaks if you wish to smoke and you will need your ticket to regain entry. 
  • The other general rink rules such as no flash photography, waiting for a break in play before moving around the rink, no foul or abusive language etc… are, as with all rinks, also in place.
  • Our Supporters Club run a merchandise stall in the main foyer and upstairs at the back of Block 5 (opposite the bar) there is also the Supporters Club shop.   Merchandise, programmes, 50/50 tickets etc.. are all available at these two locations on a match night.
