Hello, fellow Pred-heads, we’re less than 20 hours away from the first Nashville Predators #NHLtweetup!
Thanks to Michael DiLorenzo at the NHL office in New York and the Predators’ very own Gerry Helper, I’m pleased to bring you the following items which we will give away at the tweetup tomorrow:
In addition to these great giveaways, Jeremy Gover, co-host of the 303:30 podcast, will be donating a puck autographed by W #71 J.P. Dumont, I will be donating a yellow toboggan hat autographed by D #6 Shea Weber, and the NHL will be giving away a complimentary one-year subscription to NHL GameCenter Live! Remember, you can’t win if you aren’t there!
Buddy and Jackson Oakes will also be live on location doing their first live remote podcast of Preds On the Glass, and they will be looking to talk to all of us about the Preds, the playoffs, and the greatest sport on earth!
As an additional reminder, you do not need to be a Twitter user to attend, but personally I encourage you to click here to sign up for your free account…and once that’s done, make sure you follow @PredFans. If you’re already on Twitter, please remember to use the hashtags #NHLtweetNSH and #NHLTweetup when tweeting about or from the event! If you have a camera, bring it along so you can upload and tag the photos later, or if you can use TwitPic from your mobile device, please do so (just remember to tag your uploads)!
I want to give special shout-outs to @AmyPredsfan, who wrote our press releases and served as our media contact, @mollypearson, who helped me pound the pavement to find a venue for #NHLtweetNSH, @Forechecker of OnTheForecheck.com, who reached out to Gerry Helper for us to cultivate support for #NHLtweetNSH at the Nashville Predators (and who will be providing nametags tomorrow so we all get to know each other by more than just 140 characters), @brandon_felder, who brought us the most comprehensive post-game coverage on the web after every Preds game this year, and last (but certainly not least), Predators Radio play-by-play man Tom Callahan (@predsradio), who plugged #NHLtweetNSH live on the air during the Predators second-to-last game of the season against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena. Without the help of all these people, this event would not have been possible.
I’m really looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow, so get your sweaters on and head to The Closing Bell Wall St. Pub at 1524 Demonbreun Street in Nashville tomorrow at 5:00pm…I’ll see you there! GO PREDATORS!!!
