It’s time for the 2nd Annual NHL Draft NHLtweetup!
If you’re going to be in LA for the NHL Draft, then this is a “must not miss” event for you. During Day 2 of the NHL Draft (Saturday, June 26th from 10-2. You know… the really boring part of the Draft), Twitterers from all corners of the continent will be gathering at @ESPNZoneLALive for a Draft NHLtweetup. The Figueroa Patio is reserved just for those that RSVP to the event. The audio from the Draft on NHLN will be piped onto the patio and you’ll be able to see The Draft on some of the screens in the SportCenter Bar. So, while you’re catching up with the hockey tweeps in convos of more than 140, you won’t miss a thing. ESPN Zone even has wifi so feel free to bring your favorite tweeting device. (Don’t forget to tag your tweets and pics #NHLtweetup so they go into our gallery!)
Courtesy of @LAKingsHockey, the first 15 people that arrive at ESPN Zone will receive a free gift! As an extra-special-awesome courtesy, The LA Kings have also set aside a limited amount of tickets to the NHL Entry Draft at the Staples Center for Friday night. In order to be eligible for either of these awesome perks that are offered only to NHLtweetup attendees, you MUST RSVP “Yes” to the event.
If you would like a ticket for The NHL Draft:
If you are not credentialed and don’t already have a ticket for The Draft, please email Dani [at] nhltweetup.com with your full name and Twitter ID so that arrangements can be made for you to pick up your ticket. Pick up time for tickets will be Friday, June 25th 2:30-3:15 at the Staples Center. Matt (@ViewFromMySeats) will have a list of people who requested a ticket and will be waiting outside the main entrance of the arena near the Magic Johnson statue. (No, seriously. Pay attention. This is important!) He will not be there any later than 3:15 so he can go in and enjoy The Draft, himself. It is imperative that you’re on time if you want admission into the Draft. He will not be there past 3:15 so if you get there later than that, you’re unfortunately ticket-less. Tickets are limited and on a first come, first served basis so get your RSVPs in and get that email to me ASAP.
