My name is Doug Cox-Urbach and I am a Celtics fan organizing a road trip to watch the Celtics play in San Antonio, Houston, Dallas and New Orleans in March. We will leave Sunday March 16 and return Sunday March 23. The website has all the Info on the trip and can be found at www.yourbostonceltics.com or you can contact me.
THIS IS NOT A SCAM I have been in touch with the Celtics director of marketing Mackenzie Silvero and account service manager Shannon Tipton. Where they (Celtics) are not sponsoring this trip and have nothing to do with it. They are at least aware of who I am and what I am trying to do. BUT, they are not endorsing the trip. I had asked them for permission to do that, but I would have to be a corporate sponsor and I don't have 100K+ a year to drop.
The New England News Forum invites nominations from its members for appointment of "blogger coordinator" for each of our six states. The blogger coordinator will have significant latitude in defining the scope of the role.
An initial scope may be found HERE.
