PRIOR TO PURCHASING TICKETS PLEASE READ ALL OF THE DETAILS AS BUS TRIP TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE FOR ANY REASON
PLEASE NOTE: GIANTS-PACKERS GAME TICKETS ARE NOT INCLUDED! YOU MUST PURCHASE YOUR OWN TICKETS.
Our Chicago New York Football Giants group has done road trips to games annually since 2008 traveling all over the country. It has become one of the highlights of our football season regardless of how good or bad the Giants are doing at the time.
For 2016, we are back on the road once again. This time, we will be utilizing a charter bus for our annual Big Blue Road Trip to historic Lambeau Field for the October 9th game between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers. Our last trip to Green Bay was for the 2011 NFC Divisional Playoffs that ended in glory and weeks later, a Super Bowl title.
BUS TRIP DETAILS
This trip is limited to those 21 years of age and over. Once a ticket is purchased it is NON-REFUNDABLE. However, tickets are transferable if you cannot make trip and want to sell to someone else.
The "Early Bird" cost for a bus ticket is $65 for the first 25 people who pay for their seats to ensure our bus is reserved. Those who purchase a bus ticket afterward, the cost is $100.
The charter bus will pick all of us up on Sunday, October 9, 2016 from Racine Plumbing (2642 North Lincoln Avenue) in Chicago at 1:00 PM and will take us to Green Bay for the game. Per Google Maps, it is a 3 hour, 13 minute trip without accounting for any unforeseen traffic delays. The kickoff for the game is scheduled for 7:30 PM.
45 minutes after the conclusion of the Giants-Packers game, the bus will take us back to Racine Plumbing. Everyone must be on the bus by that time or will be left behind and will have to find their way back to Chicago.
There will be restrooms available on the charter bus along with electrical outlets for you to charge your portable devices.
You are responsible for your own items that you bring on the bus trip. Please ensure anything you bring is protected, safe and secure.
You may bring a cooler that includes beer and food onto the bus. DO NOT BRING GLASS BOTTLES. Please be mindful that this will be a very long trip to Green Bay. Please stay in control of your game and drink responsibly.
If it is determined that you are either causing problems with other people in the group to harm their experience and enjoyment or are excessively intoxicated, we reserve the right to not allow you back on the bus returning to Chicago.
