Capitals Convention Coming in September

Following in the footsteps of some other teams, the Capitals announced they are going to be holding the first Capitals Convention on Sept. 26 at the Gaylord Convention Center in Oxon Hill, Md., giving fans a chance to meet the 2009-10 Caps and other alumni just before the new season kicks off.

The Cubs and Blackhawks have used this format before, and now Washington will try its hand to see who will plunk down between $40 and $350 for autographs and a chance to buy game-used items at the team's annual equipment sale.

The afternoon will also feature panel discussions with the coaches, media and front-office personnel, as well as games and other displays.

Tickets go on sale to season-ticket holders on July 9, with the general public getting a crack on July 14.
