A team representative just called to let us know that members of Sonicscentral.com, Stormfans.org, and Save Our Sonics and Storm are personally invited to this event. There will be free food, a basketball clinic for children taught by Jack Sikma, and a chance to actually meet several people in the oganization. Since it will be a relatively small event it should be a nice chance for the die hard fans to get to know people on the team. Please feel free to attend.
