MEMOIRS OF AN ISLANDERS FAN: Kids' Opening Day

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders
Send in your best story about a childhood experience at the Nassau Coliseum and it may be published in an upcoming issue of Islanders Illustrated.


The Islanders will introduce ISLANDERS ILLUSTRATED, a new game program to be distributed free of charge at a select number of home games throughout the 2007-08 season. Here's how Islanders fans can participate!

Each edition will feature not just content produced within the hallowed walls of the Nassau Coliseum executive offices, but will also include contributions from you, the fans. The unique section will be known as "Memoirs Of An Islanders Fan" and will include stories written solely by the fans.

For the second edition, set for distribution at Kids' Opening Day against the Washington Capitals on October 8, we're asking fans to email us their favorite Nassau Coliseum experience as a child. It could include anything from attending your first game to going with a group of your friends for a birthday party.

Remember that the submissions for your Home Opener stories are due on August 10. The deadline for the Kids' Opening Day entries is August 17.

Throughout the summer, check back to newyorkislanders.com each week for a new topic of discussion for another edition of "Memoirs of an Islanders Fan."
