The Bears take on the Baby Canes at home!

Charlotte Checkers at Hershey Bears
March 24, 2012 | Giant Center | Hershey, Pennsylvania
Bus Trip

For our annual jaunt to the chocolate capital of the world, the Crew were treated to a game against the Charlotte Checkers, AHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes. Though slow to start, the game became very tense toward the end with many physical altercations. The Bears were down 1-0 until midway through the final frame, when they were able to muster two goals against the Checkers for their fifth straight win.

Trip Itinerary

We will be hitting the road by bus to Giant Center to cheer on the Hershey Bears as they take on the farm team for the Carolina Hurricanes. We cheered them on to victory vs the Charlotte Checkers last season and hope to bring good luck along with us again.

The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and lower level group tickets. No tickets aside from those with bus transportation are available at this time.

Current plans: We’ll have a pickup in northern Virginia at Springfield Metro station at 1:00 p.m. and one in Maryland at the Shady Grove Metro station (off I-270) at approximately 1:30 p.m. We should arrive in Hershey by 3:30 pm for lunch at the Bear’s Den in the Hershey Lodge or some tailgatingbefore at Giant Center before heading inside at 6 p.m., in plenty of time 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.). Parking is free at both Metro stations but the Metro will be open in time for both our departure and return and we encourage our guests to make use of it if convenient.

All of our available spaces include bus transportation and the cost will be $55 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.
