The Bears stomp the Baby Pens at home!

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at Hershey Bears
November 17, 2012 | Giant Center | Hershey, Pennsylvania
Bus Trip

While the NHL had locked out its players, the Caps Road Crew still got their early season hockey fix taken care of. A bus full of us travelled to the birthplace of the sweetest hockey, Hershey. After a delicious meal at the Hershey Lodge’s Bear’s Den, we cheered with the home crowd as the Bears beat the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins 4-1.

Trip Itinerary

We will be hitting the road by bus to the Giant Center to cheer on the Hershey Bears as they take on the Baby Pens.

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 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.). 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.
