Road trip to Boston for the Raps vs Celtics Game in Jan

This event is not confirmed just yet, I am just seeing if there are enough people interested in going.

We are looking to fill one Deluxe Motor Coach so approx 55-60 people. My estimate so far based on a few quotes is approx $300-$350/per person.

This includes:
- Deluxe Motor Coach + Driver to boston and back
- 1 Night @ a 4 star Hotel (2 Twin beds per room)
- 1 Ticket to the game (upper bowl or possibly skybox)

Date & Time: ( Fri Night - Sun Night )
Leave the night of Jan 1st at approx midnight. We'll arrive the morning of Jan 2nd just in time for check in at hotel. We'll have the bus to take us to and back from the game. Stay one night and leave Sun afternoon around 1pm to be back by 10pm.

Post below if you're interested.

If anyone has contacts or suggestions to add value to the trip I'm all ears.

If you hop on the Hwy on Monday and start driving east... You'll get to celebrate new years some where in Winnipeg before you meet with us in Toronto.

I'm liking the idea. Price is reasonable.

Put me down as a probable. I tend to get gigs that weekend.

How about leaving Boston a bit earlier to get back to the ACC for the Raps vs San Antonio at 6 pm? For just $30 more, we can see that game as well.

Its about a 9 hour drive. We'd have to leave Boston b4 9am to make it. I doubt the majority would be willing to wake up that early =)

and responses are slow. The chances of this event happening on this scale is looking slim. Most likely end up doing this on a smaller scale but please keep posting if you're interested and Details based on the number of people interested will follow.

I looked through the Raps entire schedule for Sat games in near by cities. This one of 2 or 3 I recall that was feasible. And besides, Boston is a much more interesting match up to watch. It'd be awesome to have 50+ Raps fans in one section cheering them on especially if they could pull off a W in Boston.

For the bus ride, hotel and tickets, $300-$350 is a great price.

I'd possibly be up for it and I could potentially get up to three or four others to join.

Sadly, I doubt mommy would let me ride to Boston by myself.
