On behalf of our entire organization, I can’t thank you enough for making Season 6 an extraordinary summer.
Whether the Larks win or lose, you help our team turn Dakota Community Bank and Trust Field into a FUN factory creating thousands of smiles, laughs, and memories for families and friends. With your continued energy and support, we’ve been able to accomplish some incredible feats over the past six years including selling out over 80% of our home games (top in the Northwoods League), receiving national attention in news and on social media for our entertainment and promotions, raising close to $300,000 for local charities, and creating FUN that’s made a real difference in people’s lives.
But let’s not stop there. We’re only six seasons into this adventure and there is so much more FUN in store. Because of your support, the Larks are thrilled to announce two exciting ventures for the 2023 season:
- NEW RIVAL TEAM IN MINOT, ND. This summer, our local ownership team secured a lease at Corbett Field with Minot Parks and Recreation and will be starting a second Northwoods League team in North Dakota in 2023. The team will have a naming contest this fall in Minot (coming soon). Fans will be able to watch this new rivalry unfold at historic Corbett Field and Bismarck Municipal Ballpark. Each team will host four games on their home field.
- 2023 NORTHWOODS LEAGUE ALL-STAR GAME IN BISMARCK. The Northwoods League has seen the Larks record attendance and has decided to host All-Star weekend in Bismarck. This game will feature the best players from the Great Plains Division competing in a Home Run Derby and All-Star Game in mid-July.
As you know, the ONLY way to guarantee the best seats to the best games is by joining the Flock and becoming a Larks Family or Corporate Flock Member. Flock Memberships are also the ONLY way to guarantee tickets to Bismarck vs. Minot rivalry games next year and receive the first opportunity to purchase tickets to the 2023 NWL All-Star Game.

Thanks again for your continued support of the Bismarck Larks and can’t wait to see how much more FUN we can have together this season and beyond!
