The first trip of the new decade brought the Crew to Chocolate Town, USA for a match between the Hershey Bears and their hated rival Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins. A quick bus trip took us up to the Hershey Lodge where we had a pregame happy hour at the Bears’ Den. Afterward we headed to Giant Center where the Bears spanked the Baby Pens to the tune of 7-2.

Hershey – Saturday, January 16, 2010
It’s da Bears playing da Pens.
UPDATE: This trip is now sold out. Contact us at email@example.com to be placed on the waitlist.
We will be hitting the road by bus to Giant Center to cheer on the hometown Hershey Bears as they take on their rival, the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins.
The CRC has made arrangements for bus transportation and lower level group tickets. We’re certain some interesting pre-game plans will develop as we receive feedback from the guests.
Current plans: While our departure time will be determined by whatever pregame plans develop, it will be after 12 noon and will include a pickup in northern Virginia at Springfield Mall and one in Maryland at the Shady Grove Metro station (off I-270). Regardless of the pregame plans, we’ll arrive at Giant Center by 6 p.m., in plenty of time to head inside and 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 12:30am and Springfield Mall around 1:30am). 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 $50 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 the group plans and others’ reservations. We will have space and tickets available for 50 people. To reserve your spot on the bus, or for more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please specify number of seats/tickets needed.)
