Meet The Thunderbirds Family Archive

In December team photographer Brian Liesse started introducing T-Birds fans to those connected to the team whose contributions might not be readily visible. This project is exciting because we get to highlight those that make T-Birds hockey possible through their hard work and dedication to the team and the sport of hockey. We are introducing you to T-Birds staff, accesso ShoWare Center staff, Booster Club members, Game Night Staff, Media, and others who help us celebrate and promote the team and the sport in the Pacific Northwest. Each person highlighted answered a questionnaire about what they do with the team and some personal highlights. Brian took the photos of each person in their T-Bird environment. The links below take you to the individual page of each member person we highlighted with this project.
