A great, big tailgate party followed by a not so great game

Washington Capitals at Carolina Hurricanes
November 12, 2016 | PNC Arena | Raleigh, North Carolina
Bus Trip

Our first trip of the season found us returning to Raleigh for a Saturday evening tilt against the Hurricanes. Two buses of Roadies joined some local Caps fans, and some more who made their trek separately, for an epic tailgate with a German menu. After many sausages were cooked and many pretzels were dipped, we headed into the PNC Arena for some live hockey. Despite the Caps losing 5-1, we have fond memories of our trip!

Trip Itinerary

The Caps Road Crew will be heading south down I-95 by bus, making a long overdue trek to the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina, to see the Caps take on the division rival Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 7:00pm. So let’s dust off the tailgating gear, fuel up the buses, and show ’em how WE rock the red!

The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and lower bowl group seats. We also have plenty of extra tickets for the local fans or those who wish to make their own way to the game; these tickets will be $65. If you would like to claim some of these extra tickets, please email us ASAP at info@capsroadcrew.com and specify number of seats/tickets needed.

The Crew will meet at Springfield Metro (in Virginia) and the bus will depart promptly at 11:30 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 3:30 pm, enjoy a few hours tailgating, and have plenty of time to catch warmups before the 7:00 pm game.
The bus will be returning home immediately following the game with an expected arrival back in Springfield around 2am.

The cost for the trip will be $140 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.
