Join us for a Carolina BBQ!

Washington Capitals at Carolina Hurricanes
March 25, 2006 | RBC Center | Raleigh, North Carolina
Bus Trip

Our first post-lockout Caps Road Crew trip! We loaded a bus with Caps fans and grills and had a magnificent potluck tailgate party before the game. Then, our bellies full and our hopes high, we stormed the castle of Caniacs, cheering the Caps on to a 3-1 win over the men in red. A fantastic way to open the road trip season!

Trip Itinerary

The CapsRoadCrew will be hitting the road by bus, traveling to the RBC Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, to see Alex Ovechkin and the rest of the Caps take on our Southeast Division rival, the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, March 25, 2006 at 7:00pm.

The CRC will make arrangements for bus transportation and group tickets. Unfortunately, due to the great demand for tickets to this game, we will not be able to provide tickets to those who do not travel on the bus with the Crew.

Current plans: The Crew will meet at Springfield Mall (in Virginia) at 11:30 a.m. and the bus will depart promptly at 12:00 noon. We have decided to arrive in Carolina in time to do a little tailgating! We expect to arrive at the arena in Raleigh by approximately 4:30 p.m., spend an hour or two tailgating, and have plenty of time to catch warmups before the 7:00 p.m. game.

The Crew bus will be returning home immediately following the game (expected arrival back in D.C. by 2:00 a.m.). The cost of the trip is $90 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 and time constraints will most likely prevent us from making any stops on the way down. The bus is equipped with a restroom and video/TV units. In keeping with RoadCrew policy, anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

We will be taking one bus to Carolina, with a total of 50 spaces available. The trip may be expanded to a second bus if demand warrants. For payment information and further details on this trip, please e-mail us at
