The Boardwalk Battalion leadership is happy to announce they have chosen 5 home games to consider as “outings,” as well as 5 road games in Staten Island.
We already announced our road trip to Hudson Valley, when the Cyclones take on the Renegades for a Sunday game in July, with some fans staying overnight for the game at 11:05 AM the following morning.
As part of our “outings” (we will not be doing group tickets for any of these), we will encourage fans to either wear their Boardwalk Battalion Gear, dress a specific way, or pull some specific shtick.
