Responsibilities & Policies

It is our pleasure to welcome you to one of our Premium Seating venues. The Infield Suites, ranahans, 30X Saloon and The Lazy S are exclusive. You now have access to one of the most sought-after hosting venues in Calgary while being in the centre of all the action of a world-famous sporting event. 

The atmosphere and integrity of these exclusive venues are in your hands. We have outlined a number of responsibilities and policies below to help make every guest experience all that it should be. Your co-operation in following these guidelines is appreciated and expected.


An event coordinator and event host must be designated for the Infield Suites, ranahans private dining rooms, 30X Saloon semi-private and private groups and for the Executive Suites in The Lazy S.

The event coordinator is responsible for making arrangements for the guests prior to their arrival and completing an event order form. The event host is in attendance and is responsible for on-site activities. The event host also requires a ticket. The same person may fill both roles. Any challenges or special requests on event day should be reported by or handled by this person with venue management.
