Quoted TextDo you like basketball? Ever been to an NBA game? Well here is a chance to go to a NBA Development League game with players who some day hope to play in the NBA. The Albuquerque Thunderbirds team is the development team for the 76ers and the Suns. So you might see some of these players on TV one day soon!
This is something that I have been working on for some time, since last summer in fact, and I finally got the details ironed out! Please come, bring your friends and family to a night at the Albuquerque Thunderbirds Basketball Team. Ticket prices are $8 each, the same for everyone, children 2 and under are free.
The first 75 kids who pay will get a tour of the facilities!!
I have attached the flyer, to print it out set your printer to 0 margins. The registration form along with payment information are on Pg 2 of the flyer. PAYMENTS WILL ONLY GO THROUGH ME (TABITHA ORR) DO NOT CALL THE TICKET OFFICE!
PLEASE, PLEASE Print these out, spread them around to other homeschooling families! Bring friends, relatives, people interested in homeschooling. This is going to be a lot of fun and we all get to sit together in great seats near the action!
Still need more reason to come? The half time show will be presented by Duke City Fencing, a fantastic fencing facility here in Albuquerque that specifically has classes for homeschoolers! In fact homeschoolers will be in the half time show!! http://www.dukecityfencing.net
Just for FYI I am not getting a commission or anything out of this, our family has to pay like everyone else, this is really and truly for everyone in the homeschooling community, ALL homeschoolers are welcome, and I hope to see us filling all the seats in our section! What a treasure it would be to see a huge group of us there!
Some of you might remember Trey, their mascot, who promotes reading, walking around the NMHS Community Fair last year?
