We'll be raffling off some Sens-themed prizes. For a full list of prizes, please check the event site. Check back frequently, as new prizes are being added.
The event will feature panel discussion with members of the media like James Gordon (@SensReporter) and Ian Mendes (@ian_mendes). Bloggers like Graeme Nichols (@GraemeNichols), Luke Peristy (@LukePeristy), and podcasters SensNation (@SensNation) and Sens Call-ups (@SensCallUps) will be in attendance as well. The Silver Seven team will also be represented by Peter, Adnan, and me (Amelia). There will be time for a Q&A period as well as optional discussion of statistics and prospects.
Discussion topics are still being finalized, feel free to offer suggestions in the comment section of this post or chat with Kevin on twitter.
Finally, a big thank you to Kevin, who has already put a lot of time and effort into this project. We actually have a pretty great Sens community and he's a huge part of that. Sens fans are talented, funny, and engaged and I'm really excited for the opportunity to interact with the larger Sens community in person.
