From the Buffalo Sabres:
It was a day that many people will never forget. And now the Buffalo Sabres want to find out why it was so special to you.
As the summer months roll on, the Sabres are producing a DVD to commemorate last January’s Winter Classic. The New Year’s Day match-up featured the Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins playing outdoors in front of a capacity crowd of more than 71,000 hearty fans at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, NY.
A featured section of that DVD will be “My Classic Stories,” a collection of fan stories from the day told by the actual individuals who experienced them. The six most compelling entries, as chosen by Sabres staff, will be videotaped by Sabres production crew and used in the Winter Classic DVD that will be released prior to the start of the 2008-09 season.
Enteries must be received by June 20th. More information below.
Visitors to sabres.com will then be able to watch portion of each fan’s stories and then vote on the overall winner.
The grand prize winner will receive an “Ultimate Fan Experience” package that will include two (2) tickets to watch a Sabres home game in the press box, a zamboni ride, the opportunity to tour the production truck before a game and the chance to attend a post-game press conference during the 2008-09 regular season. The six (6) finalists selected will each receive a replica Buffalo Sabres Vintage Winter Classic jersey.
Visit sabres.com for complete contest details and rules. Entries must be received by June 20.
