If you are a season ticket holder, or the rare member of the Sounders Alliance you received this email about a week ago.
Sounders FC Alliance Members -
You voted on it, you got it - 13 fans will receive Golden Scarves during 2010 home matches.
Now we need your help in determining which fans will receive Golden Scarves...
Tell us why you think you should receive the Golden Scarf. We'll ask for information on your history with the Sounders, community involvement, soccer involvement and favorite Sounders moment.
Our Golden Scarf committee will whittle nominations down to 65 and then assign five nominees to each of the 13 match dates. Then we'll let you vote on who should receive the Golden Scarf.
For more information visit SoundersFC.com.
Deadline to submit nominations is April 30th.
I'm on the Golden Scarf Committee, and so are the rest of your Alliance Council members. We've grown over the offseason, and are meeting with ownership next week.
So today I would like some of your input - how should we judge who gets to be a finalist for the Golden Scarf? What would you like me to bring forward to the Sounders ownership?
Bart Wiley on the change in the awarding of the Golden Scarf "We’re excited about fan nominations for the Golden Scarf and look forward to the process playing itself out. Fans voted this system and will have a direct say in who receives the scarf."
Honestly I'm excited to be part of the process as well. It was a great moment when I was out on the pitch to represent you, and now I look forward to having a small bit of infuence on who gets the honor in the future.
Again, two topics in comments please
What kind of things should influence which fans receive the Scarf?
What would you like the Council to discuss with Ownership?
