    Cedar Rapids Cyclones Ride to Games

    We have a tailgate bus (48 passenger, but we cap the number at 15) with currently 7 people of all ages on it and room for more. Wondering if anyone would be interested. We leave from northern Cedar Rapids and allow plenty of time for tailgating. Also, we come back the same day/night. Bus has a bathroom on it, so no need to stop. Let me know if you're interested. Price is $150/person for a one-season ownership share in the LLC. The $150 includes a ride to and from all the home games and includes gas, game day parking fees and insurance. BYOB for tailgating on the bus on the way over and back. We also have a gas grill and generator. Message me if you're interested.

    That's awesome! I'll keep this in mind - we usually go to a couple games each year.

    We just moved here about a year ago, and we have ZERO Cyclone friends in CR area.

    Damn, that's a pretty good deal. $150 for the whole season?! You can't hardly buy a single game parking pass with gas to and from CR for that. I'd be all over that if I lived in CR.

    Haha yeah. Not trying to make a profit. Just break even or not be so far into the hole.

    Just a friendly word of warning. The Iowa DOT enforcement was out pulling over buses left and right on RAGBRAI. They were checking for driver's CDL's, safety compliance and making sure if the bus is registered as an RV that it fully qualified as an RV. We have one of the best buses on RAGBRAI (a coach, not a school bus) which our friendly officer acknowledged as well as CDL licensed drivers but we still ended up with a list of warnings that we need to get rectified. I could see them starting the same thing around tailgating buses. Note that you cannot register as an RV and charge someone for a ride. Depending on your policy if you charge you may also nullify your insurance coverage.

    Just thought you might want to know.

    This ... double check what you are wanting to do ... and make adjustments for your offer. Maybe free ride with all the pretzels you can eat for $30?

    Re: Cedar Rapids Cyclones Ride to Games

    The buying a share in the LLC seems like an odd way to do it. Why not call it rent and you just retain the LLC for yourself? I wouldn't want to complicate it with 15 different "owners" of the LLC.

    It could be how they get around the insurance issue.

    You may want to ask for a contribution to parking and gas expenses.

    Yup sounds like he is just charging dues to be members of the llc and one of the membership perks is the bus for use for tailgating.


    I will have to keep this in mind as I travel over to games from CR by myself every time.

    That's true. Would be treated as a commercial business and be opened up to different rules/regs. Good call.

    I'd be interested, but probably just on a game by game basis, as I have a baby boy due any day now.

    Getting closer to football season, so I thought I would give this thread a bump. Let me know if you're interested.

    Try attending "Cy's after 5" at Daniel Arthurs near downtown. Next on is Aug 21st at 5PM. Informal gathering of Iowa State fans. No formal program just mingle and introduce yourself.

    Also might be interested in a game by game situation. If you're going to offer that at all. Might be too complicated to keep track of all the changes week-by-week.
