Hello again, everybody.
For those of you who haven't had the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the TwinsTrain operation over the last couple of years, don't feel left out; it's never too late to sync up with our touring outfit and join the excitement this summer.
In a nutshell, we package weekend trips to follow the Minnesota Twins on the road, with game tickets, hotel, and premium bus transportation. For more information, you can head over to http://territorytrain.com. For veterans of TwinsTrain, read on.
The little road trip business you’ve known and continue to love is roaring back for more this 2012 season — and we certainly hope the Minnesota Twins, after such a difficult season, are ready for the action as well.
The hometown team has made some significant changes this offseason, and TwinsTrain is no different. This winter, the Train decided to expand its range of destinations to the minor league circuit, adding a weekend celebration of the Twins low-A minor league affiliate Beloit Snappers. But perhaps our biggest change will take place over the next few days: as of Friday March 2, 2012, we will no longer be TwinsTrain. We will be Territory Train.
The timing of this name change may strike you as curious. So, let us give you a rundown of how we arrived at this point.
As it was, two weeks ago, we received a letter from the Major League Baseball legal department asking us to discontinue the TwinsTrain name for fear of trademark affiliation with our favorite team.
I’ll tell you this much: the hair on the back of my neck stood up when I read their detailed request. Because you know what? We’re on Major League Baseball’s radar. We’ve arrived, folks.
Territory Train will be about everything you knew about TwinsTrain. Fanaticism. Enthusiasm. Celebration. Bus Driver Ed. Great seats. Comfy lodging accommodations. And wonderful stories that will last many generations of Minnesota Twins baseball.
But, yes, everything will continue to be the same as you’ve known it before. We will continue to dedicate our collective enthusiasm to make every stadium our territory as we continue with our new name. And there’s no better place for it than Territory Train.
Please adjust your Facebook, as we will no longer be found at http://www.facebook.com/twinstrain. All of our social coverage can be found on both Twitter (@TerritoryTrain) and the new Facebook page.
Our new home, if you haven’t already found it, will be http://www.territorytrain.com.
We also plan on logging some of our adventures on the Twins Daily site as we go along here, as well. So stay tuned.
Thank you so much for your patience during our time of reconstruction and rebuilding.
Scott Povolny | Territory Train Owner
PS -- We like to give away stuff to our fans, so 'like' us over at our new Facebook site, where we will be having a drawing for both a $100 and $200 Territory Train gift card once we arrive at 250 fans and 300 fans respectively.
Tell your friends. Tell your mother. And for goodness sakes, send Scott Stahoviak a text.
