    Bus Trip Update

    So the bus trip isn't getting as many hits as I thought it would due to the amount of interest that was originally showed on here. I have now contacted the Cyclone Gridiron Club and they have put it up on their website as well. This is now posted on CF, Craigslist, my works special interest forum for ISU alum, and the Cyclone Gridiron Club website. I will also be asking some businesses to post a flyer for me. Right now we have 13 people committed to going and about 15 more that are supposed to get back to me after checking w/spouses, buddies, and family. Please if you are interested now is the time to sign up. If I don't have 50 people by early next week I will have to cancel the idea so that those who are interested can find alternative means of transportation to the game. If you haven't read the thread with all the info here it is...

    Re: Bus Trip Update

    In case some of you were out shoveling all day here's the update. Need 50 by next Wednesday or it's a no go. I will add that I have now also emailed KXNO to see if they will make mention of it on their sports talk shows. We'll see if they do or not but that could bring in some interest also if they can help get the word out.

    Stop waiting around and make your arrangements now to go cheer on the football team and show Tempe why Cyclone Nation is one of the best groups of fans in the country!!!

    Re: Bus Trip Update

    Picking up some steam via Craigslist. Would be nice to get some more Fanatics on this bus! It is a motorcoach so it's not like you'll be stuck on a school bus for 22 hours.

    Trans Iowa Charters’ motor coaches boast all the amenities such as:Reclining Seats
    Restroom
    DVD with multiple monitors
    Panoramic windows
    Overhead Storage
    Large under storage cargo bays
    Our 55-passenger motorcoaches are among the biggest on the road today. These vehicles are built for large groups, covering long distances in comfort and style.

    Thanks for the idea. I don't use Facebook much so didn't even think about that. I'll try to get on there today if I can figure it out.

    Thanks a ton. The more people that spread this by word of mouth the better! I'm kind of dissappointed that only 3 or 4 of my 25 people signed up so far are off of this board. I figured with all the buzz and Yes votes I got with the thread I started that I would have a lot more off of here. I have a good feeling it will get filled up as more people hear about it. Only 31 more open seats to fill and only need I have 25 more people sign up to make it a go. I have 14 more people getting back to me in the next couple days with a definite answer so it could be full by the end of the weekend.

    Re: Bus Trip Update

    Price sounds right and all..... Where exactly would you drop us off?? Where would we meet the bus on the 2nd?? Where would you suggest getting a hotel??

    Those are the main questions. If I did something like this I would have to go cheap on a hotel or even share with a few friends to split that cost. So If you can help me out on the above, I might have a chance at going.

    Re: Bus Trip Update

    Strange Question and you might not know that answer. Which is fine. What route is the bus going to take? Is it going to go south to Oklahoma City and then west or is it going to go though the mountains? Believe it or not this the important question my gf needs answered.

    Tell her what she wants to hear just to get her on the bus. And then, when you start the trip have the driver announce that we are taking a different route due to road construction. (all assuming they are taking the route she doesn't want.)

    Yep, she wants to see the mountains. Incredible I know! The lying part, while a good idea, may not be best for the other passengers peace of mind.
