Some of you may have already received an email from the Sonics Arena team, thanking you for signing the petition and inviting you to a pre-hearing "Tip-Off" event on March 15. If you haven't received it, here's what it says:
Thank you for adding your voice to the thousands asking the Seattle City Council to approve the Occidental Avenue street vacation.
To show your support in person, please come to the Public Hearing Tip-Off on March 15 at 4pm. Joining us will be members of KJR and the voice of the Sonics Kevin Calabro.
WHEN: Tuesday, March 15 at 4pm
WHERE: Seattle City Hall, Bertha Knight Landes Room on the Main Floor
After the Public Hearing Tip-Off event, we'll all be heading to Council Chambers on the 2nd floor to show just how many of us want to BRING BACK OUR SONICS!
And whether or not you can attend, please send an email to the City Council at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask them to approve the street vacation. It will send a strong signal to the NBA and NHL that Seattle is ready to be a home for the leagues.
Thanks. It's Game Time!
-The Sonics Arena Team
As you can see, Kevin Calabro will be joining the event and doing the voodoo that he do. KJR will also be on hand and will be broadcasting live from the event. We hope to see as many of you there as possible!
We also ask that if you can't make it, you post pictures of yourself in Sonics gear on Twitter with the hashtags #GameTime and #BringBackOurSonics. We will retweet as many as we can.
