Season Seat Member Spotlight: Cathy Rushton

August 23, 2023

In our latest Season Seat Member Spotlight, Cathy Rushton shared the positive impact the Belleville Senators have had on helping her feel more connected to the Bay of Quinte community since moving to the region from Manitoba.  

Cathy is pleased with the friendly environment of CAA Arena which is not only perfect for watching American Hockey League contests but for interacting with others that share common interests.  

She is also grateful for the calibre of action that is on display on a consistent bias and is delighted by the community efforts that the organization has continued to put forth.  

A Season Seat Member since the inauguration of the franchise, Cathy is certainly amongst the most loyal supporters of the hockey club.  

What has been your favourite experience as Belleville Senators Season Ticket member?  

The most memorable game was the very first one. There was so much excitement in the air. The 2019-2020 season was a great one that was unfortunately cut short by COVID. We think there was a great chance we could have gone deep into the playoffs. It was exciting to make the playoffs in 2021-2022, even though we were eliminated. 

What do the Belleville Senators mean to you?  

We moved to Belleville in late 2014 from Winnipeg. In Winnipeg, we were season ticket holders for the Manitoba Moose before the National Hockey League returned. Then we had part of a season ticket for the Winnipeg Jets. During our time as season ticket holders for the Moose we grew to appreciate the calibre of play in the AHL. When it was announced that Belleville was getting an AHL franchise, we signed up early on. For us, being season ticket holders has helped us feel a part of this community and we have made some great friends with others who sit near us at games. 

What advice would you give to someone considering purchasing season tickets?  

Go for it! You will not regret it. The hockey is great and it’s really exciting to see tomorrow’s NHL stars as they begin their professional journey.
