Townhall and Game Info

We've been away for awhile, so I thought I should apologize. Andrew's busy doing that real job with the airline thing. I've been so busy on the current, probably soon to end temp job, that I even missed the tryouts for the Dynamics on Saturday, and you know how I am with the Dynamics. As for Ms. Conduct, who knows what all she's been up to, and I'm not sure I even want to know.

There's not much new on the team front. The assistant coaches still haven't been named, and there is still no schedule, though that should be coming in a few weeks. However, the team did announce last week the dates of five home games for the 2011-12 season.

Saturday, October 15:
Saturday, October 29;
Friday, November 18;
Friday, December 16;
Friday, January 20.

The Aeros also announced today that the team has hired a new team president, David Burke, who from 2007-11 was the Vice President of Ticket Sales for the Phoenix Coyotes. He's previously worked for the Dallas Stars, the Texas Motor Speedway, the New Orleans Hornets, and the Charlotte Bobcats. And he's going to oversee the day-to-day business operations of the franchise.

You should find this interesting because the press release from the team says that sometime in late August Burke and the team will be holding a townhall meeting with season tickets holders and other fans. So all of the complaints and gripes you've had, well instead of telling them to us, who can't do anything about them, now you'll have the chance to let someone with the team know about your problems. In person. He won't be able to hang up the phone. He won't be able to delete the email, he'll have to listen.

We'll send along the date when we get it. Until then, happy off-season.

JR, Oct. 15 isn't the home opener for sure.

Thanks. I fixed it. I don't know where I got that from. Judy tired I guess.

I probably won't be able to make the town hall meeting so somebody, anybody, please just shout out ICE GIRLS a couple of times.

I just hope they have the townhall meeting in a place where we (season ticket holders) can actually see the participants and hear what they have to say.

What's Judy got to do with this....Judy who?

John Royal said...

Judy is that idiot John Royal trying to type on his iPhone when he's half asleep, misspelling "just" somehow and having it autocorrected as "Judy."

Mr. Royal:

With regard to your frequent references to Attorney Temp Work, you may find interesting the 8/3/11Wall Street Journal article (Page B4) entitled "Objection! Lawsuit Slams Temp Lawyers".

With temporary legal staffing expected to increase dramatically over the next few years, committed participants may be exposed, increasingly, to frivolous lawsuits for "just doing their jobs", a "long-tail" with no end.

While this has nothing to do with the Aeros, it has everything to do with your profession, and I just wanted to wish you All The Best!

Go Aeros!

Forecheck said...

Ah,yes.....love that autocorrect...especially its total lack of understanding of anything approaching a word used in technology . I turned the silly thing off on both my phone and in Word.

Forecheck said...

P.S. - No such a thing as a "happy off-season"!

Come October, come!
