The 2012 Central Division Tweet Up
On July 28th, 2012, Columbus will host the first of it's kind Divisional Tweet Up. Tweet Ups have happened at NHL events and on local team levels, but never before has this been done on a Divisional level. Fans from all NHL Central Division teams will descend on Columbus, OH on July 28th.
Each teams charitable Foundation has sent autographed memorabilia to be raffled away. In addition, the NHL Alumni Association has sent a hockey jersey with 28 former NHL players autographs on it, four of those signatures are members of the Hockey Hall of Fame. 100% of the proceeds from these raffles will go back to the charitable Foundations.
This event will feature music provided by the Columbus Blue Jackets in-arena DJ, Nick Johnson (@CBJ_DJ), and videos from each of the Foundations. The penultimate video has been produced by Tom Larrow (@Skraut_) and will feature all five teams of the Central Division. Anyone who has seen the videos that Tom produces knows this will be special and of high quality.
This event is also two-fold, as the first part takes place at the Buffalo Wild Wings (Grandview), with the second, more relaxed part taking place at the R Bar in the shadow of Nationwide Arena. The R Bar will also be holding raffles throughout the evening.
There is more information at the 2012 CDTU Facebook page.
We hope to see many of you there for the shared love of the game of hockey. What better way to spend a Saturday in the middle of the off-season than among hockey fans?
