Join us for a magical evening with New York Times bestselling author Lana Harper as she discusses the enchanting third installment of her immensely popular The Witches of Thistle Grove series, Back in a Spell

Back in a Spell follows Nineve Blackmoore and even though she won’t deny her love for pretty (and pricey) things, Nineve Blackmoore (known by Nina by most) is almost painfully down-to-earth and sensible by Blackmoore standards. But after a year of nursing a broken heart inflicted by the fiancée who all but ditched her at the altar, the powerful witch is sick of feeling low and is ready to try something drastically different: a dating app.

CANCELLED - Salem Mayhem vs Syracuse Spark

2/10/2023 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

(Tuesday, January 31, 2023) — The Professional Box Lacrosse Association announced yesterday that all remaining games across the league will be postponed as of January 31, 2023.  Individual and season ticket holders will be refunded at point of purchase. Season ticket holders will be contacted and will receive a full refund for the duration of the season.

“We made a difficult decision to postpone the remainder of the inaugural season,” said owner Carmen Kesner.

“Our vision is to implement a fast, physical, safe, and exciting experience for our fans and players.  We believe we have been able to create this experience, but we feel there are elements we need to improve upon.  For that reason, we are halting the season to re-organize the league and team operations.”

Carmen Kesner, CEO

Part of that reorganization comes with the appointment of Brad Bryant, the new Chief Executive Officer of the PBLA.  “I’m excited about what is in store for this league.  My goal is to take Mr. Kesner’s concept to the next level and create a sustainable product for years to come that both the players and the fans can be proud of.”

The PBLA recognizes the support of the loyal lacrosse fans and while regretful for this decision, believes that the coming season will prove it to be the right decision.
