During the summer of 2009 the Jacket Backers were looking for a different way to support the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation. It was decided that instead of the traditional check presentation, we would sponsor a hole at their annual Golf Classic. For our $1,000 sponsorship, our logo was displayed at the tee box of our hole and we were listed in the event program along with other corporate sponsors.

Welcome Jacket Backers,
Is it too early to begin planning your hockey road trips?
The Jacket Backers have a couple of opportunities for early season group tickets, but we have to act fast to take advantage of these pre-sale offers.
To reserve your spot today and make payment arrangements, please contact Anne and Jeff Little at email@example.com.
Phoenix – Saturday, October 10 – 9 pm EST (Tickets only)
OK. This trip is for the hearty traveler. Maybe someone with a lot of accumulated frequent flyer miles or someone trying to accumulate a few miles. We have an opportunity to acquire group seats at a significant discount for this game. This game is the Coyotes’ home opener. Tickets would be $45 for lower bowl corner seats. We need at least 15 people to secure these prices. Your commitment with payment is needed by 9/15/09. If we are unable to reach 15 interested travelers, all money will be refunded.
Washington Capitals – Sunday, November 1 – 5 pm EST (Tickets only – Potential Group Hotel)
This game would be the perfect ending to a weekend getaway in the Capitol City. Tickets are available but going fast – we need your commitment with payment by 9/15/09. Tickets are $110 for an upper level ticket, …BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Ticket pricing includes an all-inclusive pre-game buffet with alcoholic beverages and a Capitals Rally Towel and Hat. Ok, so we know you’d rather have Jackets bonus items. Think of these items as valuable souvenirs. We need at least 15 to obtain the group pricing on the game. If enough are interested, we will also look into lodging somewhere easily accessible on the Metro line with a group discount; we’d provide details on booking and you’re on your own for final arrangements and payment at the hotel. If we are unable to reach 15 interested travelers, all money will be refunded.
Welcome Jacket Backers,
All Members Welcome
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if planning to attend.

Congratulations to our 2009 - 2010 Officers and Committee Chairs that were elected last Saturday. Elections were quick, as none of the nominees faced opposition, and all positions were filled. The quick elections allowed us to do a little brainstorming and planning for next season. We also were happy to welcome our newest honorary member, Joel Siegman, Manager of Fan Development for the Columbus Blue Jackets. It was a pleasure for everyone there to have the opportunity to exchange ideas with Joel for next year's events. Thank you to all who attended and enjoyed the fabulous free lunch! We are now seeking volunteers for each committee for the upcoming season. To sign up, please email the committee chair that heads the committee you wish to help with by clicking on their name below, or head to our contacts page under the About Us tab on the website above.
