Big Table assists those individuals through timely interventions, intentional relationships, and transformational care… all with no strings attached.

What is the size of the seat cutout?

All cutouts will be the same size- approximately 48" tall x 18" wide. 

Where will my cutout be located?

Cutouts will be placed in a visible location at the San Diego Gulls sole discretion. Seat locations will be randomly designated by the San Diego Gulls. We cannot accommodate requests for specific locations. Cutouts may be relocated or removed for any reason at any time without notice or refund to you. 

When will my cutout be placed in the arena?

Cutouts will be installed in groups, depending on when your order for the cutout is received.

Can my cutout be placed near friends or family?

Every effort will be made to install cutouts purchased in the same transaction together. We cannot accommodate requests for specific seating locations.

Will I receive a confirmation of my order?

After completion of your purchase, you will receive confirmation of your order within 24 hours. The San Diego Gulls will review your photo and only reach out to you if your photo is not approved and needs to be resubmitted. 

Do I get to choose the player I want to autograph my cutout?

No. The cutouts will be randomly signed by a current member of the 2020-21 San Diego Gulls roster.

Can I get my cutout after the season is over?

At the conclusion of the 2020-21 season, you will have an option to pick up your cutout from the San Diego Gulls Front Office, provided it is safe to do so at that time. Please note, we cannot guarantee the condition of your cutout after being placed in the FivePoint Arena at Great Park Ice for the season. Shipping is NOT available.

What are the photo guidelines:

The photo submitted must be of yourself or your minor child. Only one person will be permitted per cutout.


  • Gulls colors or logos are encouraged!
  • Check that your clothing and your background (one solid color is recommended) are contrasting colors.
  • If you are wearing a hat, adjust the bill so it does not cast a shadow on your eyes or cover your face. Make sure there is enough light in front of your face.
  • If you wear glasses, tilt your face and do not use a flash so you can avoid glare on your glasses. 


  • For best results, use a blank wall or solid-color background that contrasts with your clothing color.
  • Set up your camera in a well-lit space with light in front of you. Avoid a window, door or direct lighting behind you.
  • Remove any personal or private information or objects in the background.


  • Have someone else take your picture. Selfies are not recommended.
  • Ideal photos will include a person front-on, with their arms at their sides about 3-4 feet from the camera at eye level.
  • Photos taken by smartphones are acceptable, however a digital camera is highly recommended. When submitting the photo, make sure it is the largest possible size. Do not compress the file.
  • Photo should be taken vertically or portrait.

Are there restrictions to my photo submission?

The following elements are prohibited from the Skrewball Whiskey Fan Cutout section:

  1. Commercial or personal advertising: company names, apparel brands, hashtags, social media handles, websites, phone numbers, email addresses, logos, slogans or other branding.
  2. Offensive or negative references.
  3. Third-party branding, including apparel and backgrounds. No attire or branding of AHL or NHL clubs or sports teams other than the San Diego Gulls or Anaheim Ducks.
  4. Political statements, endorsements, logos, slogans or any other political subjects.
  5. Names or images of any celebrity.
  6. Photos that portray lewd, explicit, discriminatory, inappropriate, violent, derogatory or otherwise offensive content.

The San Diego Gulls reserve the right, in its sole discretion, to reject any submission for any reason.

Can I submit a photo of my pet?

A photo of your pet is permitted as long as it adheres to the above guidelines.

How will I know if my cutout photo is accepted?

You will know that your cutout photo has been accepted if you do not hear back from us. A member of the San Diego Gulls staff will contact you if the photo you submit does NOT meet the guidelines and you will have the opportunity to upload a new one.

Will I be able to view my cutout in the seating bowl?

We will post photos of the Skrewball Whiskey Fan Cutout sections on the San Diego Gulls website once cutouts are installed, but we cannot guarantee that your cutout will be visible in such photos. Cutouts are not guaranteed to be shown on the television broadcasts of San Diego Gulls games. Fans will not be permitted inside the FivePoint Arena at Great Park Ice & FivePoint Arena to view their cutout.
