Well, next Thursday, June 6, the Brewers take on the Philadelphia Phillies at 7:10pm and the first 10,000 fans 21 and older will receive a Summefest Fest Flag that includes a weekday admission ticket to Summerfest (a $9 value), which runs June 26-30/July 2-7, 2013.

MB-13 Brewers Summerfest

I’m interested in seeing Phil Vassar, Blues Traveler, Barenaked Ladies on the side stages and I’m thinking about Luke Bryan and or/Tim McGraw for the headliners–what about you? For the complete Summerfest lineup, click here.

13 Weeks Until the Brewers Mini: Listen to Your Body

Two weeks ago, I told you about my experience of pushing myself too hard early on in training. I warned readers to err on the side of playing it safe. Now, here’s another lesson in that from Trenni, based on her experience at Summerfest’s Rock ‘N Sole this past weekend.

It’s a good reminder to listen to your body and train safely!

-Cait (& John)

johnandcait@brewers.com

DNF. Did not finish. That was the outcome following the Rock ‘N Sole half marathon for me on Saturday. I have been running distance races for nearly seven years now and no matter how bad I felt or how tough the race, I have never dropped out early. I could have survived and crossed the finish line on Saturday and probably not much slower than my usual time, but I had to stop this time so I won’t have to again.

Starting with the Boston Marathon in 2010 I have been struggling with dehydration issues in all but a few of my events. The races I run start out just fine, but as the miles pile up, my body wears down far too fast when the temperatures are even slightly warm. The symptoms start with me feeling very, very thirsty and a little “off”. Things then progress to where no matter how warm it may be outside, I experience goose bumps on my arms and legs. By the time I get closer to the finish, it is nearly impossible for me to even approach a pace I’m capable of running and the headache and nausea have set in.

I began to experience these symptoms around the 10-mile mark on Saturday. I was running at a pretty decent clip (about a 7:25-7:30 mile), but nothing I couldn’t handle for that distance. Just one week earlier I had run a 10-mile race at a 7:24 pace and felt just fine. (The weather was cooler, less humid and more overcast on the day of the 10 mile race.)

As the route rounded toward Veteran’s Park on the lakefront, I spotted a medical tent at about 11.5 miles. One and a half miles from the finish. Despite how close I was to the end, I stopped. I decided it was better to figure out what the heck is going on with my body than to finish another run knowing I’ll feel crummy again the next time around.

Although I was disappointed I stopped, I finally have some concrete information to work with.

One, my feelings of discomfort are not in my head. (I was partly worried I’m just mentally weak and can’t push through the finish of races.) The medical team had me walk around and drink Gatorade to try and calm some of the symptoms. After nearly ten minutes of no aerobic activity, they checked my heart rate and it was still at 140 beats per minute, which is way too fast after an extended period of time without intense activity-especially for someone at my fitness level. In addition to my heart rate, the medical team in the main tent twice took my blood pressure. Once while lying down and again a few minutes later sitting up. My blood pressure dropped nearly 20 points between the two, which again is not normal. A drop of 20-plus is very alarming, so I didn’t fit into that category, but it was still enough of a red flag for the doctor.

The second revelation, a medication I’m taking may be to blame. Apparently the type of medicine I’ve been taking for the past few years (right around the time I began having issues) can sometimes exacerbate heat exhaustion and dehydration. I may need to switch medications or make the simple change of taking the does at night as opposed to first thing in the morning.

So although things didn’t go remotely the way I wanted them to during my first half marathon of the summer running season, I walked away feeling better about future events. For the first time in more than two years worth of racing, I may finally have a solution to a frustrating problem.

I am going to visit my primary care physician and figure this thing out as I continue to train for the Brewers Mini. Don’t forget to always train safely and really listen to your body.

Your Summer “Staycation” Starts with Miller Park


 I don’t know about you, but this year the marketing department is looking forward to summer even more than usual.

It could be the taste of warmer weather this week or that the days are getting longer, but mostly, I think it is the work we have been doing on all of the special ticket packages we have with local events and attractions like Summerfest, State Fair, the Zoo and more.

Everyone in our department has a favorite package and as we wait for the summer to heat up, I thought I’d give you the scoop on the hottest ticket packages to the coolest places in town. 

First up is Summerfest. If you’re like me, you’ve already circled all the acts you want to see.  At the risk of subjecting my musical tastes to scrutiny, I’m personally looking forward to seeing Sheryl Crow, Dierks Bentley and Phil Vassar this year. Yes, I am a country girl.  So, anyway, my friends and I will be going to Summerfest at least three times this year and I’m encouraging them to purchase our Brewers-Summerfest ticket package, which includes a Terrace Reserved ticket to one of the Brewers vs. Giants games (7/5, 7/6, 7/7 or 7/8), a general admission Summerfest ticket (good any day, June 24-July 4) and this awesome Brewers-Summerfest t-shirt:

 


P1000209.JPGAt just $25, this package is an absolute steal. Summerfest tickets are regularly $16 each and our Terrace Reserved seats are regularly $15 each, so that’s a $6 savings right there, plus you also get the tee. (Offer ends 6/23.)

Brew Crew and the Zoo

Next, we’ve got our Brew Crew and the Zoo ticket package… Just $18 gets you one Terrace Reserved ticket to select games at Miller Park (6/24, 7/8, 7/27, 8/9, 8/26 or 9/21), one 2010 adult admission ticket to the Milwaukee County Zoo and this really cool tote bag
P1000207.JPG
 Again, a fantabulous deal…a savings of over $10, plus the free tote bag! 

Kelly Candotti, our Consumer Marketing Coordinator, is always up for a visit to the Milwaukee County Zoo to see what new things they have in store, as well as her favorite animals, the penguins. Why penguins, you ask? Because what girl doesn’t like a tuxedo! I think she’s also planning on using her Zoo ticket for Zoo a la Carte, August 19-22. If you’re not familiar with Zoo a la Carte, it’s a really fun “Feast with the Beasts” food and music festival. The Zoo is typically open late and you can enjoy performances from some of the hottest local and national bands, while feasting on delicious fare from over 25 area restaurants.

I’ve also caught Kelly using her tote bag to carry around her knitting supplies, but that’s another story for another post…

Brewers-Timber Rattlers Fang-Tastic Ticket Package

In 2009, the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers became the Brewers’ Class-A Midwest League affiliate, which is great for the Baseball Operations side of our business. It is great for the Marketing side of our business as well. We’ve had a lot of fun developing cross-promotional opportunities, including: the creation of two different Bernie-Fang Bobble Heads; different in-game promotions at the T-Rats games (played at Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton, Wisconsin); playing two Minor League games here at Miller Park; the creation of this joint ticket package and more.

With our Fang-Tastic Ticket Package (named after the Timber Rattlers’ mascot, Fang), for just $16, fans can get one Terrace Reserved ticket to select Brewers home games (5/29, 6/23, 7/5, 8/27 or 9/6), one Reserved Bleacher ticket to one of six Wisconsin Timber Rattlers home games in Appleton and this special Brewers-Timber Rattlers cap:

 


P1000211.JPG(Offer ends 8/31.)

Jeff Harding is our Graphic Designer here at the Brewers and besides being an all-around great guy to work with and in addition to being involved in promoting all of these ticket packages through our advertising and having designed the aforementioned Summerfest T-shirt, Zoo Tote Bag and Timber Rattlers Cap, Jeff has a special place in his heart for the Timber Rattlers.

Jeff was born and raised on a farm in Neenah, Wisconsin and has grown up going to the games up in Appleton (he remembers when the Timber Rattlers were called the Appleton Foxes); the team sparked his interest in baseball as a young lad and….here he is today!

Brewers-State Fair Fridays

Our ticket package with State Fair (Brewers “Fair Fridays”) is always a fan-favorite. My boss, Kathy Schwab, Senior Director of Marketing, loves the pig races almost as much as she loves the Sausage Race here at Miller Park, so we make sure we get to see those every year. It’s also fun to see all of the different animals, exhibits and other forms of entertainment. On top of that, it is difficult to resist all of the delectable delights the Fair has to offer–from the flavored milk to the cream puffs to the abundance of offerings “on a stick”, State Fair has something for everyone.  For just $25, fans can get two Terrace Reserved tickets to one of four remaining Brewers “Fair Friday” games (5/28 (tomorrow!), 6/11, 7/23 and 8/27) and two Wisconsin State Fair adult gate admission tickets (valid any day, 8/5-8/15). Again, we wouldn’t be offering this package if it wasn’t such a fantastic deal. Brewers Terrace Reserved seats are $15 each and State Fair tickets are regularly $9 each, so that’s a $23 savings for fans. (Offer ends 7/30.)

Potawatomi Doubleheader

Our Data Analyst, Diny Hurwitz, is known in our office for being a little, oh shall we say… frugal? And with the way the economy is today, that’s definitely not a bad thing. So, needless to say, he knows a good deal when he sees one and the Brewers-Potawatomi Doubleheader is just that. For just $40, fans can get one Field Outfield ticket to select Tuesday Brewers games (6/29, 7/27, 8/10 and 9/21), plus a $25  Potawatomi Bingo Casino Restaurant Gift Card, valid for food and beverage at any of the casino’s five unique restaurants. Our Field Outfield tickets are $40 regularly, so one would be remiss to NOT purchase this package, which basically includes a free $25 gift card that can be used at Dream Dance Steak, RuYi, the Fire Pit Sports Bar & Grill, the Buffet or the Menomonee Valley Food Court. After dinner, you can enjoy some of the entertainment Potawatomi has to offer, like shows at the Northern Lights Theater.  Of course, some restrictions apply when purchasing this package, so make sure you visit brewers.com/potawatomi for details.

Harley-Davidson Double Play

Last, but certainly not least, we’ve got our Harley-Davidson Double Play. Our Manager of Emerging Markets, Thad McGrew, hails from California. While he loves baseball and the Brewers, and while he’d probably never admit this, he might even love basketball –particularly his Los Angeles Lakers– just a little more. Head coach of the Lakers, Phil Jackson, is one the many famous Harley-Davidson Motorcycle riders and thus, it’s really no surprise that our own Thad McGrew is also a big fan of the brand. That’s why visiting the Harley-Davidson Museum was on his list of must-see Milwaukee attractions when it opened in 2008. For just $16, fans can get one Terrace Reserved ticket to select Monday or Friday Brewers games and one 2010 adult admission ticket to the Harley-Davidson Museum. This package provides a great excuse for Thad and other Brewers fans to take their own road trip right down Canal Street to check out the Museum.

So there you have it. You don’t need to plan an exotic vacation this summer; you can have your own mini “staycation” by checking out each of our six different partner ticket packages that feature one common theme — Milwaukee Brewers Baseball.  When you put them all together, you’ve got yourself one busy — and super fun — summer. Enjoy!
