How Can Fans Help?

Mayor Reed - Copy of email Request for Help

February 14, 2011

Dear Mayor Reed,

The City of Atlanta may be closer to losing our NHL Franchise, the Thrashers, than most want to believe. The economic impact and blow to Atlanta's civic pride will be significant. I urge you to (1) contact the Atlanta Spirit Group and ask them how you can help, and (2) call NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and ask him what Atlanta needs to do to protect our valuable economic asset. We have posted this request on a fan website to help save the Thrashers. You can find a copy of this dated request here:

Please read our open letter to Mr. Blank for more information. The home page for the Save The Thrashers campaign is:

Understanding time is of the essence, I am confident you will help the citizens of Atlanta. I am happy to discuss the situation or help in any way.
