Time to rally the troops! Press conference in DCU Center Box Office tomorrow at 3:00 PM. A great showing by season ticket holders, boosters, jr. hockey leagues, etc. would make a major difference. Dave Andrews coming in to see the support. New initiative! (no, not time yet to announce a team) We need everyone's help! Time is NOW! Call into Jordan Levy's show on WTAG and show your interest/support!

I'd like to think this will be the first of a few public meetings. They really can't expect very many people to show up with essentially less than a day's notice, and having it during buisiness hours. But this is a great sign. If a ticket drive starts- sign up! Let's get this thing rolling!

I have to agree, less than a days notice and at 3 on a wednesday?? why not on a Saturday at 3 so more people can attend? all i know is i will be begging anyone to buy season tix, also try and see if maybe your company would buy a few seats that could be given out to their employees or customers, also try even your kids school to buy some season tix to give out to their teachers, or students of the week or anything. I know alot of people had flex packs like myself, the key will be getting those people to convert into season tix holders as well. This is a great start to everything hopefully we can get it done.

Tj & Chav,

You are so right about the little notice on the rally and poor notice of the event, a weekday at 3pm, seems stupid and just like Woosta as usual and should have been on a weekend when more could have atteneded.

Thats it I can't take it anymore and moving to Portland Maine were you can still see great hockey, but I did sign up for four tickets today and will come back if we get a team ever.

Here's the story on the "rally". It was supposed to be a press conference. ONLY a press conference. The mainstream press works 9-5 M-F. They wanted this to hit the early news and the next day paper. It was a press invite. The city manager went on WTAG and turned it into a rally. ThenWTAG ran with this. Since that is what he wanted, the ball was rolling, so it was on to get as many fans possible there. I can somewhat see the point. Dave Andrews was expecting press only. By putting some word out Andrews shows up and sees a lot more people/fans than he expected. I wouldn't even call that turnout a 'rally' turnout. But politically, it was a good move. Let's try and lighten up a bit and be positive - OK?

I got to speak with Mr Andrews for just a few seconds and he was indeed impressed with the fan turnout.
