Hugh was as genial one-on-one as he on `on stage'. I had a great time talking with Hugh, Bill, Matt, Gena, and the other reps. Plus, notable Hornets fans like Joe and Trew. Very good party. If I can think of enough details, I'll assemble a post.
13 Full Season Tickets Sold at Our “I’m In” Event
On Monday I hosted an event for the New Orleans Hornets on behalf of Hornets247 and Hornets Report. President Hugh Weber was in attendance as well as some other Hornets brass in order to talk to potential season ticket holders and answer any questions that they may have.
The Hornets brought “I’m In” signs, buttons, and stickers, as well as numerous snacks and deserts. Just in case there was any doubt that this was in fact a New Orleans party first and foremost, they brought a bartender and drinks along with them as well
When the dust settled the Hornets had added 13 new season tickets and seven brand new season ticket holders. Although we had hopes of setting records, 13 new season tickets on a Monday night during a lockout ain’t bad. Thanks to those who came and bought tickets, and to the Hornets for bringing the party.
As proof that there was an open bar, you can hear me say “player strike” instead of “lockout” in the very first question.
Thanks Joe for this. The offseason has me craving any Hornets news/activity. It's great to see the efforts of guys like Hugh Weber. He seems like a hard-working individual. Hopefully things can pick up with a lockout end (but it doesn't sound like there's optimism in his voice for a lockout end which is probably why they have that finance plan in place).
