Kelli's Korner: Gearing Up For The Season
Florida Panthers
Oct 10, 2008

Hi everyone!!

We just had our squad photo shoot that took place at John Casablanca’s Modeling in Coral Springs. We got the full treatment with our hair and makeup done thanks to Paul Triana Salons! As promised, here are some sneak peeks at the new uniforms.

Desi (Co-Captain)

Kelli (Captain)

Nichole (Director)

Angela and I did a photo shoot at Incredible Ice for a Panther merchandise catalog. We got to model some of the new female Panther gear and they even let us keep some stuff!! You have to stop by Pantherland this season and pick up some new items!

Judy, Angela, and I made an appearance at a Panther party at Chili’s in Sunrise. We came out to promote opening night and giveaway a chance to win free tickets to the big game against Atlanta!

Incase you missed it; the Panthers laid a smack down on the New York Islanders at the preseason game this past Monday. We beat them 6-0...yea, I said 6-0!!! What a great way to start off the season. The entire dance team was there, but we were watching from the stands just like everyone else! You may have seen us decked out in our Panther jackets. (Thanks Reebok!) During an intermission break, we took the rookies downstairs to show them our locker room and we even managed to sneak in a picture near the ice!

All the ladies and I visited Florida Atlantic University's (FAU) Football game against Troy University to promote our opening night game. We performed during one of their quarter breaks, mingled with the fans, passed out promotional items, and gave away opening night tickets! It's a lot different being on a football field than in an ice arena...but I wouldn't trade the ice for the grass, any day! ;)

Victoria and I joined Fox Sports radio outside of the FAU football game to talk about opening night and to invite everyone out to Knight Time Billiards at the Hardrock Hotel and Casino on Friday night, October 5th, to watch the Panthers take on the Carolina Hurricanes. Be sure to stop by and say hi!

I just finished up a bikini photo shoot for Unrestricted Magazine. We took pictures down in the players’ walkway, jacuzzi, sauna, and even the Florida Panther emblem carpet! I don’t have any behind the scenes pictures for this one, but I did get to see the layout for the magazine already and I am very pleased! Be sure to check it out when it comes out on stands late October!

Can’t wait to see you all at Saturday’s game!!
