Last chance to enter for Ellis and O’Reilly-signed copy of On The Wing…

Spitfires Book

If you listened to this past weekend’s 303:30 podcast, you know that section303.com is giving away a Ryan Ellis and Cal O’Reilly autographed copy of the book On the Wing: A History of the Windsor Spitfires.

Ellis, Nashville’s 2009 first round pick, is the captain of the current Spitfires squad and served in the same role on the silver medal winning 2011 Canadian World Junior squad.

From 2003 to 2006, O’Reilly recorded 193 points in 197 games wearing a Windsor sweater. He led them in scoring (99 points) in 2005-06 and his 149 career assists rank ninth highest in franchise history.

In order to win, listen to the podcast and answer the “trivia” question at the end of the show. E-mail the answer to info@section303.com and, at tonight’s game, we’ll pick the winner. If the winner is at the game, they can pick up the book during the second intermission. If not, we will happily mail it.

(HINT: The correct answer can be found in the second segment of the podcast)

The book’s description on amazon.ca is as follows: On the Wing: A History of the Windsor Spitfires covers the history of the Squadron from its first inception in 1946/47, through it’s rebirth in 1975, to the team’s final two years, battling tremendous adversity to become two-time Memorial Cup Champions. Complete with more than 150 photographs, many of them in colour, and many available for the first time, On the Wing offers a history of the team, its heroes, struggles and victories, and is a volume that no true Windsor Spitfire fan, or, indeed, hockey fan, should be without.”

The two authors, Bob Duff and Jim Parker, are well versed in Spitfire-lore as they’ve been reporting on the team for The Windsor Star for nearly 50 years combined.
