Q: Will the students be exposed to media/video footage?
A: By attending this game, you give consent to be in media that may be used for promotional materials by the Calgary Hitmen. Please refer to the back of your ticket for full details. If there are any children that need to be kept out of the spotlight, please ensure teachers and chaperones are protecting them from the camera.
Q: Are we allowed to film at the TELUS BE BRAVE game?
A: Scotiabank Saddledome Camera Policy; Video cameras, monopods, tripods, tables and audio recording devices are not permitted inside the Scotiabank Saddledome at any time. Cameras are restricted to small personal hand-held cameras that will fit in a regular suit jacket pocket.
Q: Where are washrooms located in the building?
A: There are many washrooms located throughout the concourse. Sections 202-208 and 216-222 will have to go down the staircase to the concourse to access washrooms. You are able to use the washrooms at any point during a stoppage of play, but please be mindful of timing so students are not missing any important in-game features.
Q: What happens if a student gets lost?
A: All of the Saddledome Ushers and Security will have “cheat sheets” as to where each school is seated. Please let your students know that if they are lost to tell anyone in a grey jacket (Ushers) or any Security Guard (they have Security across their shoulders and dress in all black). All they need to know is their School Name. With so many students participating and all of them in pink, it will be easier for our staff to show them back to their seat rather than a parent or chaperone searching the Saddledome.
Q: What happens if a student loses something?
A: On game day, any lost and found items will be turned into Guest Services behind Section 226 on the Concourse, or to the Concierge Desk at the Box Office entrance of the Chrysler Club. Following game day, please call Customer Service at 403-777-4646.
