All three CBJ fan groups attending CannonFest 2011

One of the great surprises of last year's CannonFest, to me, was the Jacket Backers.  Those folks are one organized lot, and that organization, combined with their teamwork and enthusiasm, helped make the day as enjoyable as it became.  Talk about an awesome bunch of folks; I cannot say enough good things about what they've created over the years.  So when the organizers of CannonFest 2011 plotted out this year's activities, getting the Jacket Backers on board was a top priority.

Julie Maurer, the Jacket Backers' president, tell me that they'll be out in force again for CannonFest 2011.  They again plan to raffle off a host of CBJ items for charity, the exact items to be determined closer to the 14th.  I can't wait to see what they have up their sleeves this time around.

But wait!  Over the past season, two more fan groups formed.  One, the Arch City Army, literally stormed Nationwide Arena and turned all sorts of heads with their playful, soccer-style "hooliganism" (term used in the most positive light possible).  The other, Reclaim Our Barn, formed on Facebook to work to ensure that Nationwide Arena once again becomes one of the most feared arenas in the National Hockey League...for all the right reasons.

So why not invite all three to join in the fun?  Guess what?  They're all going to be at CannonFest, and they want to meet you!  So...


  1. Is it a problem that I am a member of all three groups!

  2. Guess it depends on how you interpret "problem"
