    Organized Trip to Shreveport

    Its looking like Shreveport...does anyone think ISU will put together a package for either bus trip and hotel stay or just hotel stay or anything? It looks like there isn't crap to do in Shreveport, but with a bunch of Clones it would be fun. It would also be a lot less hassle in driving and booking hotels, etc.

    Re: Organized Trip to Shreveport

    Alumni Association might put something together I would guess. The Athletic Dept I think has their hands full with travel plans for team/staff/family so I'm guessing they stay out of the charter bus business. Gridiron Club may do something as well.

    Re: Organized Trip to Shreveport

    I would be interested. The biggest thing with Shreveport would be the trip would probably leave the day after Christmas, which might cut down on some. I would think there would be enough to fill up some charters.

    Yes there are. Other than that there isn't much to do there but can't be picky this year.

    I doubt any package you guys could put together would compete with the Alumni Association on prices, but I might be interested.

    Re: Organized Trip to Shreveport

    Casinos are always good. For me its either going to be a looong time on a bus or a loong time in a car and I would rather not be driving.

    Re: Organized Trip to Shreveport

    I'm in too. I enjoyed Shreveport both previous times - but then again, I look at a bowl game as a really, really good non-conf game, not a vacation destination...
