TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning will give fans behind-the-scene coverage, prizes and

giveaways via their social media sites on Facebook and Twitter (@TBLightning) leading up to and

during Fan Fest 2009, presented by the Embassy Suites Downtown.

The Lightning will be hosting trivia on their Facebook page at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. everyday

leading up to Fan Fest 2009. All trivia winners will receive two tickets to a Lightning home game

in 2009-10. There is no limit to the number of times each person can win and each win will enter

the winner into a grand prize drawing. Lightning alumni will also be getting involved in trivia

questions while also sending special messages to fans. Continuing the interactive features on

the site, fans can vote on the Grand Prize via the Facebook page. The different options are a

luxury suite for a Lightning home game, four front row tickets and entry into the XO VIP Club, four

Channelside Club tickets, a four-day/three night cruise or a private locker room tour with Lightning

captain Vincent Lecavalier.

Also on the Lightning Facebook page, fans can submit questions to Martin St. Louis, Mattias

Ohlund and Victor Hedman. They will answer select submissions during Fan Fest from 4:15-5

p.m. Season ticket holders can also submit questions for Executive Vice President and General

Manager Brian Lawton, Mike Smith and Antero Niittymaki to have them answered during the

Season Ticket Holder Party, presented by Sweetbay Supermarket, being held from 2-5 p.m.

Fans will have the chance to win a number of secret prizes and giveaways just by following Fan

Fest coverage on Facebook and Twitter. They will have random chances to receive team

memorabilia and plenty of other prizes.

The Lightning Facebook and Twitter pages will be home to free exclusive Fan Fest photos,

videos and news. Fans should continue to follow Facebook and Twitter through training camp

and the regular season to receive all the latest updates straight from the source.
