Bolts fan promotion looks for international flavor

The Tampa Bay Lightning have unveiled a fan promotion seeking to find their fans from around the world. Specifically aimed at the international community, the Bolts are requesting photos of Lightning fans from around the world.

From the team's official fan page on Facebook:

The Official Fan Page is designed to give Bolts fans from across the globe another forum to network, cheer on the Lightning and take part in some great contests, promotions and giveaways. And since some of our fans are unable to participate in contests that take place in the Tampa Bay Area, we are opening this one up for you!

The rules are simple! Just send us your photos from your hometown or country, displaying your Tampa Bay Lightning pride! Send the photos via email in .JPEG format to and include your name and mailing address. We'll post the photos right here on the Official Tampa Bay Lightning Facebook Fan Page, then ask our fans to vote on the top three.

The person receiving the votes for the best picture will receive a Limited Edition Team Autographed Stick! Our first runner-up will receive a Limited Edition Vincent Lecavalier Autographed Stick. And the person receiving the third highest amount of votes will receive a Limited Edition Martin St. Louis Autographed Stick!

Of course, you need to be a Facebook member to join the official Facebook page for the team, however I don't believe you need to be a Facebook member in order to participate.
