    Re: *** CF Bus Trip - Iowa State @ Kansas State $150 ***

    Just a bit of additional information. We are only taking 2 buses, so I would sign up fast. Last year we took 3 buses to Kansas and 4 to the bowl game and they filled up rather quick.

    We are able to drink on the buses, so tailgating can start as soon as we get on the bus!

    We won't know kickoff time until 2 weeks before the game. So departure time to and from will not be set until than. What we do know is that this is a 1 day trip. Down and back in the same day.

    We have Directv and WiFi set up in the bus, so you can watch games and surf the net while we travel. The ability to relax, have a drink, and watch TV while traveling makes it a much more enjoyable trip.

    I ordered over 100 tickets from the University. All 100 tickets will be together and in the Iowa State section. So if you are going as a group of friends, email me the names of the people you would like to sit by and I will make sure you are all together.

    We will stop once on the way down and once on the way back. There is a bathroom on the back of the bus and outlets on one side of the bus if you need to charge something.

    If you have any other questions, please ask.

    I have a few questions:



    1. Right now we have 4 confirmed and working on 2 more, but don't know if i want to wait for them encase the buses fill up quickly. The only reason we are waiting is because we want to be seated together. Can you tell me how full the buses are so far?
    2. Can I buy all 4 or 6 tickets together through paypal, or would you rather it be 4 to 6 different transactions?
    3. How does the cooler situation work? Does it have to fit between the seats or can it stay in the aisle? Or is there a designated spot for coolers?
    4. What about Food? Will there be grills or do we need to bring our own? I have a grill that I would be willing to bring that anyone can use as long as they give me a buck or two for gas. My grill is a roadtrip grill and folds down into a bag.


    I might have more in before the season even gets here.

    Solid questions.

    1. We have 12 spots reserved so far. We plan on taking 110 total so there are just under 100 spots left. I don't know how fast the seats will go. We did 100 seats in 24 hours last year for the bowl game but that was obviously shorter notice. I would imagine you will have a decent amount of time to try and convince them.
    2. Either one works for me. Preferably you would send them all as 1 on Paypal and just list the names of who is attending in the notes. I will than make a note to ensure you are all on the same bus and sitting together at the game.
    3. I'd like to keep big coolers out of the aisle if at all possible. We can put them under the bus where you will have access to it on restroom stops and at the stadium. Smaller coolers in the aisle, above the seats, or under the seats will work out better. Hopefully somebody that went to the Kansas game last year can chime in about the size of the cooler they brought and how it worked out.
    4. Food is TBD at this point without knowing the time of the game. You are more than welcome to bring your own grill which we can store under the bus. If you will volunteer your grill to others for a buck, I can mention that when I send out an email to all attending when we get closer to game time. Last year at the Kansas game we ordered pizzas from an ISU alum who has a restaraunt down there. Everyone pitched in $5 and it worked out well. I don't know if that will be realistic again and won't really know until a week before the game.

    Hopefully that answers your questions. Let me know if you have any others.

    That would make for an early departure but would be really fun to watch the Iowa State game and than watch all the other games being played as we returned to Des Moines. Also puts us home at a decent hour.

    I wouldn't be opposed to a 11am kickoff. This is about the only time I will say that though.

    I, not unlike a lot of older gentlemen, have a small bladder and if I start drinking I'm going to need a pit stop 2-3x along the way. Do these buses have toilets?

    Chris already answered this, but yes there will be a bathroom on the back of each bus.

    How old are you? We have all different ages signed up.

    1/2 of 1 bus is already full which is great. Starting to see a lot of people who have come on previous trips signing up again.

    Half of that first bus is full and we really haven't even promoted this event yet. I plan on doing that at the start of next week. I wouldn't be surprised if we are full by next Friday.

    First timer here... does that $150 include the ticket? My wife and I are thinking of taking the trip.
