Hello Jets Fans,

The day we’ve all been waiting for since January is just about here… Opening Day Kickoff for our New York Jets. Expectations and spirits are high as we head into the season and I hope to see you all on opening day at Peabody’s.

We’re expecting a nice big crowd on Sunday as not only is it the first game of the season, but it is also a 1:00pm game. Those Sunday afternoon games tend to be the biggest turnouts so be sure to get to Peabody’s early so you can get your seat.

Remember we are a family friendly club and Peabody’s has also recently gone NO SMOKING throughout the facility. So please be sure to bring the kids, the spouses and invite your friends who may have never been to a game a P’s.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Food and Drink Specials
  • Big crowd of Jets Fans (100+)
  • 50/50 Raffle and prizes
  • Live broadcast from Peabody’s

In addition to the weekly fun at Peabody’s, I am currently in talks with a promoter to get a big name former player out to do a meet and greet with the club.  Names include Wesley Walker and Freeman McNeil but I’m starting by trying to get Mr Joe Klecko to join us.

Since these types of appearances are paid appearances, we are looking for several Fan Club business owners that would be willing to Sponsor part of the costs of bringing them to Tampa.  Sponsors and their businesses will be included on all literature that goes out about the appearance and they will also get some special VIP time with whichever former Jets great shows up.  Everyone that comes out that day will also be sure to get an autograph and be eligible for other special raffle items.

We’ve also got a Football Pool running for anyone that is interested.  You can find all the details here.

Finally we’re also looking for club members that own their own businesses who would like to offer up discounts or other raffle prizes (Jets or otherwise) for their local businesses to our members.  We will let everyone at the club know about your business and you’ll be listed as a sponsor on the Fan Clubs website.  If you’d like to offer up a prize, please give me a call at 888-NY-JETS-1, drop me an email, or leave it in the comments below.

Well that’s it for me for now.  I’m really pumped for the season to get started and I can’t wait to see my Jets family again.  Miss you guys (and gals).

About Festa

My given name may be Steve but my friends have been calling me Festa for the last 30 years. While I really miss going to all the JETS home games and tailgating with a large group of friends, it’s really great being here in Tampa around other JETS fans while we root for our team. When I founded the fan club in October of 2004 I never imagined it would become as massive as it now has with over 600 members from around the world and sister Fan Club Chapters in 4 other Florida cities and growing.
