Grandpa’s Still Got It

How my husband’s Christmas gift got our grandkids off their phones and into the game
By: Gin Torkelson
Larks fan, Grandparent, and Scheels 7 Pack Holder
Boy, do my husband and I love our baseball. And our grandkids too of course! We have 8 of
them - ranging in ages from 5 months to 22 years old. And if you’re like us, we’re always
looking for ways to spoil them when we get the chance.
But let’s face it; for the older ones, fun at Grandma and Grandpa’s house often turns into less
of a conversation and more of a competition with all their devices! Ron and I finally understand Facebook, and now they tell us we need Snapchat? When does it end?!
So just when I thought the old man had given up, he showed up one day last fall with the biggest smile on his face.“Honey, I know how to break through to the kids - the Bismarck Larks
Scheels 7 Game Pack!” And boy, did that catch their attention.
FUTURE STARS

FREE GIFTS
We also got 5 great gifts in our package which
included a jersey, hat, bobblehead, team photo,
and Clark the Lark poster, which we gave to
the grandkids. As you can see, we showed up
to the games in style!
FOOD EVERY GAME
The part we’re still trying to figure out about
the pack is the food. For $16 a ticket, we could
not believe we got the game, the fun, the gifts,
AND all-you-can-eat food and drink.
We honestly thought it was only for one game. Ron and Gin Torkelson. Proud grandparents

and our favorite – the pulled pork and potato
salad. We just found out that the Larks prepare & cook all the food themselves and even have
a smoker on site. No wonder we liked the pulled pork!

First off, our whole family loves good baseball. Ron played college ball, as did our son, and
most of the grandchildren play in various leagues. While we’ve always prided ourselves on
Bismarck’s rich baseball history and great youth programs, we always hoped a higher level of
the game would come back to town that we could enjoy.

FLEXIBILITY & SERVICE

At our first Larks game, we were blown away by the talent on the field. These are the top college players from across the country competing against great competition in hopes to one day
get drafted by a Major League team. Ron told Reily, our 14-year-old grandson, “You will see
5-6 great plays tonight, whether at the plate or defensively.” Reily was counting right along
with him. And, by golly, Grandpa was always right.

While our schedules are more open these days, I feel like the grandkids pick up a different activity every week. However, we never had to worry about missing a game with the Lark due
to their No Ticket Goes Wasted Policy. If we ever needed to switch a date in our package, we
let thee team know and they switched it free of charge. You could tell they truly cared about
our experience.

FIREWORKS, ENTERTAINMENT ACTS, AND MORE

WE COULDN’T BELIEVE THE PRICE

While the baseball was great, you sometimes forgot the game was even going on with all the
entertainment. Between you and me, they have the best fireworks show in town. We couldn’t
believe it. After witnessing our first show, we thought they had spent their entire promotional
budget for the season - until we found out they were doing 5 more!

With all this value, we were ready to pay for it. Time like this with our grandkids is priceless.
But when Ron went to pay the bill, he could nott believe the Larks only charge $16 per ticket.
That’s a total of $112 for the whole package. It has to be one of the best deals in town.

The Larks brought in acts from across the country on special nights. One guy shot himself
from a cannon, another juggled chainsaws, but our favorite was Rally the Mascot. Oh, was he
funny! Rally had us all cheering louder in the 8th inning than we were in the 1st.
And most importantly, the grandkids loved it too. While they loved watching the game with
Grandpa, some innings they’d get up and go bounce around in the YMCA Family Fun Zone
and loved running around the bases in the 7th inning.
