Well, well, well. It’s only been three months now since the Seahawks won the Super Bowl and I’m just now finally getting around to sending out a newsletter. This may have been the longest drought in the recent history of the club!
Hopefully most have you have been keeping up via Facebook and Twitter and getting some of the emails I’ve shared from our Sea Hawkers Central Council president about some of the Sea Hawkers events.
What’s really been keeping me from my usual Military Sea Hawkers duties has been finalizing our coins, patches and our latest round of ball caps. They’ve finally all arrived and everything is looking great. In fact, all of the pre-orders that were paid for have now shipped!
What a great offseason it has been. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of watching teh NFL Network and hearing “The Seattle Seahawks are the 2014 Super Bowl Champions” at nearly every commercial break.
Check out some of the news from the team to the right. It was great to see the photos of the Lombardi trophy visiting the local VA hospital. Also, your votes helped JBLM earn funds through the USAA Million Fan Salute.
In club news, the Sea Hawker All Club banquet is coming up. See the event link for more details. Tickets are $41 per person, children are half price, and all guests attending the banquet must be members of one of the Sea Hawkers clubs (just a heads up if you had planned to attend with a non-military friend or spouse).
Even if you can’t attend, you’re welcome to join the raffle. Tickets are $2 and prizes include an autographed replica jersey, autographed football, and 16×20 Percy Harvin photo. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in buying tickets via PayPal.
The 2014 NFL Draft is only a few days away! Rumor has it that one of our Military Sea Hawkers members may be annoucing one of the selections! If so, I’ll send along details so folks can watch for it.
This offseason is just cruising along. It’s going to be preseason in August before we know it.
