A Melville woman is tracking down a refund – and making new weekend plans – after the Regina Pats decided to move their Homecoming Weekend hockey games indoors.
The team announced Wednesday that due to weather, player safety concerns and stalled ticket sales, both games originally slated for Mosaic Stadium are being moved inside the Brandt Centre.
Jina Molnar had already bought a pair of tickets for $150 as a Christmas present for her and her husband.
“We were going to go and make a weekend of it and it was kind of a cool opportunity to see a couple of cool outdoor games,” she said.
Molnar told 980 CJME she found out about the cancellation from a friend Thursday morning.
“I was kind of shocked because I never got any email or any notice or anything and I checked my credit card and no money has been returned,” she said.
“Seventy-five dollars a ticket is a lot to pay for just a regular WHL game in the Brandt Centre.”
Molnar said she called the Pats office Thursday and was told team management was hoping to send out an email later in the day detailing options.
She asked about a refund and was told she should get one in five to 10 business days.
Molnar said she doesn’t have plans to come to Regina, about a two-hour drive from Melville, for any other of the Homecoming Weekend events.
