The CapsRoadCrew will be hitting the road by bus traveling
to Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey,
to see the Caps take on their Eastern Conference rivals, the
New Jersey Devils. This is a late season matchup of premiere
goalies (our own Olie Kolzig vs. Martin Brodeur) and superstar
skaters, including the Caps' Peter Bondra and Jaromir Jagr,
and the Devils' Scott Stevens, a former Caps captain.
The CRC will make arrangements for bus transportation and
group tickets. Unfortunately, due to the great demand for
tickets to this game, we will not be able to provide tickets
to those who do not travel on the bus with the Crew.
Current plans: The Crew will be meeting at Springfield Mall
(just off I-95 in Springfield, VA) at 12:30 p.m. on March
1; the bus will depart at 1:00 p.m sharp. We'll make a stop
at Forest Glen metro station (just off the beltway in Maryland
at Georgia Ave.) at 1:30pm to pick up those in Maryland and
the bus will depart at 2:00pm sharp. We'll arrive in the Meadowland
Sports Complex around 6:00p.m., in time to head inside and
catch warmups before the 7:30 p.m. drop of the puck. The Crew
bus will be returning to the D.C. area immediately following
the game (expected arrival back in D.C. by 3:00 a.m.). The
cost of the trip is $75 per person (includes ticket and transportation
costs). No extra fees or money over the cost of the bus and
game tickets will be charged. You may bring your own food
and drink on the bus (coolers will be provided for your convenience).
There is no smoking allowed on the bus and time constraints
will most likely prevent us from making any stops on the way.
The bus is equipped with a restroom and video/tv units.
Ticket arrangements have been made and reservations are filling
up fast. Please get your reservation in ASAP to guarantee
your spot on the CRC Bus! A reservation should be considered
a firm commitment as it will be used to finalize the group
ticket purchase. Approximately 45 spaces are available. Full
payment will be due by January 15, 2003.
