Where: The Fox & the Hound
I am once again very proud to announce that some great companies and organizations have decided to sponsor the #NHLTweetup – Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are once again an official sponsor of the NHLTweetup – Pittsburgh. As is the NHL, the Hockey Hall of Fame, Versus, HockeyT-Shirt.net, YinzCam and our newest sponsor, BladeTape!
So make sure you come out and let’s cheer the Pens on as they defend Lord Stanley’s Cup!
Not that you need any more reason to come out and cheer on the defending Stanley Cup Champions, but our great sponsors have been kind enough to send us some great items to give away. And in an effort to build your anticipation just a little more, I will reveal a couple each day, building up to Saturday.
From the Hockey Hall of Fame: A pair of passes to the Hockey Hall of Fame. (We gave away a couple of pairs of passes at a previous NHLTweetUp and the winners traveled to Toronto over the Summer and said they had a GREAT time!)
And if that isn’t enough to make up your mind to come, how about this:
Returning sponsor Versus has generously donated: 2 white hockey t-shirts, 3 black Nike Dri-Fit women’s polos, 1 black Reebok hockey jersey that has the Versus logo on it, and 5, yes I said 5 red 1GB iPod shuffles!
UPDATE: We just received an exclusive discount for NHL GameCenter Live (courtesy the NHL) for one lucky winner! Ask anyone who as used GCL, it is awesome!
Special thanks go out to new sponsor BladeTape. They have very generously sent us some of their Penguins-themed bladetape to award some very lucky attendees!
Now, how can you not come! This is going to be, to use twitter-speak, EPIC!! You will not want to be the one sitting at home reading the tweets, wishing you had come. So make sure you RSVP so we save you a seat!
