I'll be coming down from North Florida. These trips are a good deal and this is a great chance to see this group of seniors one last time. If you're in the state, don't miss this game.

Signed up to go from Tampa. $15 for transportation and parking isn't bad. Hope to see lots of fans

We live in Tampa. Just bought 3 tickets. Should be a fun game.

Florida fans- For those that have signed up for this deal, were you planning on going already or has this effort by BC encouraged you to go?

Alex L. said...

amartin: I was kind of on the fence about it. But then I realized we live all of an hour and a half from Orlando, so it would be ridiculously easy to go. I didn't sign up for the bus trip or anything, but three of us will just leave work a little early, hop in the car and have a mini-tailgate in the parking lot and then head to the game.

I'm glad to hear that the entire band is going.

BC - you're a class act.

Atleagle- Any word on if they're doing a similar charter/discount package for those alumni in and around atlanta?
