More Be Tour at All-Star Information

Dear WNBA Fans,

On the eve of what is sure to be a fantastic All-Star Weekend, I want to let you all know how much we are looking forward to three days of great events in the nation's capital, culminating with the Eighth Annual All-Star game on Sunday, July 15th at 3:30pm from the Verizon Center and broadcast live on ABC.

Our players are excited about the many opportunities to meet with you and express their thanks for your support. They are appreciative for the many of you who will be traveling great distances to share in the festivities, for those of you who are fans of our outstanding Washington Mystics and of course those who will be following on TV and the web.

We want to make sure that you are all aware that in our efforts to improve the experience every year, our All-Stars will be very accessible this year at the BE TOUR. On Saturday, July 14th from 12:30pm to 2:30pm, the East and West All-Star Teams will be on-site to participate in a series of activities where you will get to interact with them, ask questions, get autographs, even compete with players and against them as well as get their thoughts on a variety of topics. Coaches Boucek and Laimbeer will be on-site as well, and after running through some plays with their respective teams, will stay around to offer their insight into the upcoming game and the rest of the season still to be played.

In addition to our current All-Stars and Mystics players, several of our WNBA Legends including Jennifer Azzi and Ruthie Bolton will be present and joined by other top female athletes. The BE TOUR will be at the site of the former Washington Convention Center (11th and H Streets, NW) on Saturday from 10:00am - 7:00pm and Sunday from 10:00am - 3:30pm. Be sure to check for all the appearances throughout the weekend.

I want to thank the many fans who have written to let me know some of your thoughts. My favorite part of this job is the opportunity to interact with our fans. I look forward to seeing you in just a few days.

On behalf of our All-Stars and the entire WNBA Family, we look forward to our best All-Star Weekend yet and we hope to see you in Washington!
