Message from the Prez:
Hi Gang, quick notice.
Immediately following the end of the draft on Saturday, the Jacket Backers are having a party open to the public at the R Bar.
The highlight of this party will be the Faceoff Hockey Show Podcast recording their post draft wrap-up show. They will not just be doing audio, but video as well that will be going to their YouTube video group.
The Blue Jackets have been kind enough to donate prizes, including hats, mini-helmets, and pucks signed by Brule, Vyborny, and Fedorov. The Faceoff Hockey Show is sponsored by 180s sportswear, who will be providing prizes as well. There will be a few other surprises to boot.
Also, joining/renewing membership right now is at a special price. Through July 1st, you can join for the 07/08 season at the 06/07 price of $10 person/$15 couple. Thats a savings of $5 person/$10 couple on the coming seasons rate.
Everyone who joins/renews prior to the end of the draft will be automatically entered into the drawing for an 06/07 team signed stick that will be given away at the party on saturday.
Our table will be on the Bud Light Terrace in Nationwide Arena adjacent to the sportscard show both days of the draft.
On top of our normal benefits, every member this season will receive a special collectible that will be available later in the summer.
Additional benefits will be announced closer to the beginning of the season.
This sounds like a fun cap to the weekend, and maybe pick up some schwag too.
