OK class…settle down. Now, before I start passing out the weekend reading assignments, I do want to make some announcements so that everyone will be aware of a few items…
First off, there will be a traffic situation that will occur on Sunday November 8. The Thrashers are scheduled to play the St. Louis Blues at 5:00 that afternoon…and the Falcons will host the Washington Redskins that same day with kickoff set for 1:00 pm.
Also, I understand that those affiliated with the Atlanta Thrashers Fan Club are already thinking about, and preparing for, some road trips during the season. The Nashville game is a definate possibility given is proximity and that it’s played there on a Saturday night. Carolina and Tampa are cities that are also being discussed on the team’s message boards and the Nasty Nest. Check ‘em out and maybe you can participate in the mass infestation of an out-of-town barn by Thrasher Nation!
I’ve already been in contact with Tim Ecclestone regarding Thrashers Viewing Parties over at TJ’s again this season, so take a gander at the schedule to see if a few of the dates pop out at you. Keep in mind that Sean Grace and I have chatted already about a pair of games that the Fan Club and I will coordinate together there… October 17 when the Thrashers play in Buffalo and the February 13 game in Chicago.
A few that I’m think of are Saturday October 10 when Atlanta travels to Ottawa… the November 25 game at Detroit, (Thanksgiving Eve)…Saturday January 2 when they are on Lonnnnnn-Gisland…and Saturday afternoon April 3 when they are up in Pittsburgh. If there are others that you think will work, lemme know.
Oh, and keep the Sunday November 15 game vs. Edmonton circled on your calander…I’m working on something for that game that could be real fun.
And lastly, I had the pleasure of chatting with radio voice of the Thrashers Dan Kamal recently…so be on the lookout for part one of that writeup come Sunday morning.
