CHARLESTON, S.C. – Members of the CSU Buc Club, as well as fans of the Bucs, are invited to two booster trips during the 2012 CSU football season. Tickets are available for purchase on the team’s charter trips to New York (October 5-6) and Illinois (September 14-15) and will offered on a priority, first-come, first-served basis.
Cost per person for each trip is $200 for flight and bus fees, with additional expenses for food and hotel (see group meal costs below). Those interested in joining the Bucs on either trip are invited to sign up by contacting Cathryn Broderhausen at email@example.com or calling 843-863-7523. Please note sign up priority is according to the schedule below. Fans are encouraged to sign up as soon as their assigned time is available as prior Buc Club trips have sold out.
The Buccaneers will travel to Champaign, Ill., on September 14 and will face the University of Illinois the following day. Fans are invited to travel with the team before spending an afternoon in the Windy City, departing Charleston on the team charter early Friday morning and arriving in Chicago around 10:30 central time. The group will be given free time to explore attractions like Navy Pier, Michigan Ave, Willis Tower’s Skydeck, etc. A limited number of tickets are also available for those interested in attending the Chicago Cubs game vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates at 1:20 p.m. (Must sign up with Cathryn – ticket prices TBD). Dinner will be a group meal at approximately 6:30 p.m. with a return to hotel at 11 p.m. (Restaurant and cost TBD)
Fans will be picked up at the hotel at 10 a.m. for the 11 a.m. kickoff on Saturday morning. The group will return to the airport immediately following the game. Schedule for the day is tentatively based upon game time and is subject to change.
Fans are also invited to join the Bucs as they travel to Long Island, N.Y., to take on the Seawolves of Stony Brook the weekend of October 5-6. The charter will depart from Charleston early Friday (10/5) morning and arrive in New York at approximately 8 a.m. Fans will then be transported by bus to Manhattan, where they will arrive first at Battery Park for a team photo opportunity with views of the Statue of Liberty in the background. The team will then depart for a separate excursion while fans will continue on to the West Side of Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History (expected arrival 11 a.m.) where they can enjoy lunch at Ray’s Pizza or a walk through the museum for a small donation (no specified charge). Travelers will be free to explore the city before being picked up by the bus at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the East Side of Central Park at 7 p.m. A group dinner reservation has been made in the theatre district at Tony DiNapoli’s for a cost of $50 per person. Fans will board the bus for the hotel immediately following dinner with an estimated arrival of 11 p.m.
For game day, travelers will be picked up at 11 a.m. at the hotel. A private, group reservation has been made for lunch in the lovely nearby town of Port Jefferson at The Fifth Season (a CSU tradition!) for an estimated cost of $35 per person. There will be an hour to explore Port Jefferson before the bus arrives to transport fans to Stony Brook for a 6 p.m. kickoff. The charter will depart immediately following the game. The schedule is determined by game time and is subject to change.
As the departure dates for both trips approach, more specific details will be provided to those traveling on the trips. Anyone with questions in the meantime is encouraged to contact Cathryn.
