"Each year, we strive to find bigger and better ways to celebrate the Senators' special connection to Barbados," said Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. "This exclusive charter is a unique chance for us to showcase the excitement that can be created when you bring 200 diehard Sens fans to Barbados to experience the warmth and hospitality of the country."
The Sens Army Operation Barbados four-day, three-night trip includes return airfare on a private charter, a room for two at the Accra Beach Hotel and Resort, a Sens beach party and a Senators beach shirt.
All trip participants will join Melnyk for two televised Sens games at Bert's, the island's hottest sports bar and restaurant. The Senators play the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday, April 1, and the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday, April 3.
“Eugene Melnyk and his enthusiasm for promoting Barbados in Canada continues to bring a wonderful boost to tourism on the island," said His Excellency Glyne Murray, Barbados's High Commissioner to Canada. "We take great pride in our wonderful partnership with Eugene and the Ottawa Senators, and look forward to exposing the delights of Barbados to what will be the largest contingent of Ottawa Senators fans ever to visit the island."
There will be opportunities to win trip packages with featured contests for early-bird Senators season-ticket renewals, suiteholders, viewers of Senators televised games and listeners of 93.9 BOB FM and Sports Radio 1200 The TEAM. Details will be released at a later date.
