- Perhaps you want the chance to meet fellow hockey fans from across the U.S. and Canada.
- Or it could be your opportunity to visit the beautiful, vibrant and romantic city of Montreal.
- Maybe you will be one of the lucky few attending the NHL amateur draft in person, watching the likes of John Tavares, Matt Duchene, Victor Hedman, Brayden Schenn, or Evander Kane being selected by your favorite team.
Fans who trek to Montreal to watch their favorite team play the Canadiens universally report that there is something different and palpable about how hockey is embraced in this city. Montreal is the mecca for hockey fans. Special things happen in the city that is home to 24 Stanley Cup winning teams.
Similarly this will be an opportunity to attend a hockey tweetup like no other. Loyal, passionate and knowledgeable hockey fans will get together to meet, enjoy, and follow day two of the 2009 NHL amateur draft.
For those already living in Montreal, it is your chance to meet with hockey fans and bloggers from across the continent.
The Montreal Draft Tweetup headquarters will be Ye Olde Orchard Pub and Grill. Ye Olde Orchard is a friendly Celtic Pub located on the first floor of a beautiful downtown heritage building within walking distance of the Bell Centre.
Other draft weekend events include a fun road hockey challenge playing at McGill University and skating on the year-round ice at the Atrium.
You'll even have a chance to win hockey prizes from the Hockey Hall of Fame, NHL Foundation, Versus and others.
If you haven't yet signed up, do so today before it's too late!
