No one does holidays quite like the AHL. From special event nights to themed custom jerseys, the NHL’s farm league makes every occasion noteworthy, and the Bears are no exception! In addition to St. Patrick’s Day, this night was also Autism Awareness Night. Hosting the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the NY Islanders’ affiliate, the Hershey squad came through to keep the Crew’s unbeaten streak at Giant Center intact! The final score of 5-1 brought a joyous end to our trip season.

We will be hitting the road by bus to the Giant Center to cheer on the Hershey Bears as they take on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and lower level group tickets. (A very limited number of tickets aside from those with bus transportation are available at this time.)
We’ll have a pickup in northern Virginia at Springfield Metro station at 12:30 p.m. and one in Maryland at the Shady Grove Metro station (off I-270 & ICC) at approximately 1:00 p.m. We should arrive in Hershey by 3:30 pm for lunch at the Bear’s Den in the Hershey Lodge before heading over to the arena at 6 p.m. to catch warmups before the 7 p.m. drop of the puck. The CRC bus will be returning to the D.C. area as soon as possible following the game (expected arrival back at Shady Grove around midnight and Springfield Metro around 12:30 a.m.). Paid parking is available at both Metro stations and while the Metro will be open at the time for our departure, constantly changing WMATA schedules make their operation when we return questionable so plan accordingly. We are happy to assist with carpooling for those who need it.
All of our available spaces that include bus transportation will be $65 per person. 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. The bus is equipped with a restroom and video/tv units.
Please get your reservation in ASAP to guarantee your spot on the CRC bus! A reservation should be considered a firm commitment as it will be used to finalize others’ reservations. We will have space and tickets available for 55 people.
