Hi everyone!

We're getting ready for another great season -- our tenth -- at the Harp, can you believe it? Keep an eye on your email over the next week or two for our plans for the upcoming season.

As you may know, the Boston chapter of Bills Backers International has been officially registered with the Bills front office since 1991. In the beginning BBI was run by volunteers with occasional support from the team; later, it was run, on the side, by the team and their administrative staff. Recently, BBI was moved in-house as a full-fledged program of the Bills' marketing department. As part of this effort, Bills Backers from around the world are being asked to register with the team as part of the "ultimate fan network".

Registering with the team brings a full set of benefits, including special merchandise, access to contests, tailgate and ticket packages, and more. You'll also be able to participate in the annual Bills Backers Weekend, which this year is October 8th and 9th when the Dolphins are in town. The full list can be found at http://www.buffalobills.com/fans/BillBackersBenefits.jsp.

It's up to you to decide if you want to sign up in this way, but we encourage it. (We won't do it for you because of privacy concerns.) When you sign up, make sure to designate "Bills Backers of Boston" as your chapter affiliation. For more information, and to sign up, go here: http://www.buffalobills.com/fans/BillsBackersCreateAccount.jsp.

After you sign up, notify a family member, friend or a co-worker to become an official Bills Backer and you'll be entered to win a Throwback Jersey autographed by Hall of Fame Bills quarterback Jim Kelly. For details, click here: http://buffalobills.com/fans/BillsBackersReferral.jsp

Go Bills!
