March madness in Canes country !

Washington Capitals at Carolina Hurricanes
March 21, 2009 | RBC Center | Raleigh, North Carolina
Bus Trip

Our final trip of the season took a large contingent of Caps fans to see the last matchup with the Hurricanes. Over a hundred guests made the trip and were treated to a fantastic pre-game party with games and a tailgate spread that would put the locals to shame. The fun continued until the Canes, aided by one-sided officiating, beat the Caps 4-1.

Trip Itinerary

The CapsRoadCrew will be heading south down I-95 by bus, making our annual trek to the RBC Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, to see the Caps take on our Southeast Division rival, the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, March 21, 2009 at 7:00 pm. This will be the final season showdown, the last 4-point game, for these divisional rivals, so it’s sure to be intense.

The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and lower bowl group tickets.

Current plans: The Crew will meet at Springfield Mall (in Virginia) and the bus will depart promptly at 10:30 am. We have decided to arrive in Carolina in time to join the local Caps fans for some tailgating! We expect to arrive at the arena in Raleigh by approximately 3 pm, enjoy a few hours tailgating, and have plenty of time to catch warmups before the 7 pm game.

The Crew bus will be returning home immediately following the game with an expected arrival back in Springfield around 2 am. The cost of the trip is $105 per person, which includes your lower bowl game ticket and bus transportation. 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 but time permitting we may make a stop on the way. The bus is equipped with a restroom and video/TV units.

We will be taking two buses to Carolina, with a total of 100 spaces available. For payment information and further details on this trip, please e-mail
