The CapsRoadCrew will be hitting the road by bus traveling
to Pittsburgh to see the Caps take on bitter rivals Mario
Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins, in Jaromir Jagr's first
game back in Pittsburgh since the trade, at the Mellon Arena
on Friday, December 21, 2001 at 7:30pm...
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 a yet to be determined
location at 12:45pm on the 21st and the bus will leave no
later than 1:00pm. We'll arrive in downtown Pittsburgh around
6:30, just in time to head inside and catch warmups before
the 7:30pm 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 3:30am). While the exact cost of the
trip has yet to be determined, the estimated cost for the
trip should be around $120 per person ($45 bus expense and
$75 for the game ticket). 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 down. The bus is equipped
with a restroom and video/tv units.
As we need to make ticket arrangements ASAP, trip reservations
must be placed by Friday, August 31, 2001 at noon.
