In honor of the Tampa Bay Lightning’s 20th anniversary, Rolling Thunder will being a 20 point tour today. There will be two stops this weekend. The first will be at the Friday First Event in Lakeland, from 6-9pm. On Saturday, they will be at Dinosaur World in Plant City from 11am to 1pm for the second stop.
Rolling Thunder will be making 18 more stops throughout the Tampa Bay area during the Fall. The events will feature Thunderbug and the Lightning girls. Attending fans will be given a rewards card at each event and can collect points for each time they attend a stop on the tour. Fans who make it to all 20 stops will get a 20th Anniversary logo shirt and a chance to win front row tickets for a game during the upcoming season. Fans who attend 5 stops will get a McCafe real fruit smoothie or frappe from McDonald’s. You’ll also have the chance to win an autographed Vincent Lecavalier jersey, team magnets for your car, and other prizes for attending.
Once again the Lightning organization has found a way to connect with the fans. We need this now more than ever in this time of doubt that there will even be a 2012-2013 NHL season. I hope to see you all there! As this past week has literally been one of the worst weeks for me ever, hence my not posting, I’m looking for a little Lightning action to bring me some joy. Though this isn’t the fix for the lack of a season upcoming, it is a welcomed distraction. Maybe, just maybe, we can feel like things are back on track hockey-wise; like there isn’t a looming lock-out. For a few minutes all will be right with the world.
