    Given the hideous traffic getting away from the ground, we tend to tailgate until they chuck us out! (which is usually 2 hours after the game). Quite a few folks stay in the local hotel that night, some buzz off back to Boston. I am sure folks will share plans on here once they are made.

    Hi guys just wondering what majority of people do after the game whilst on the road trip. I am guessing the fins games wraps up by 5pm local. Do roadtrippers tend to hang around soak up atmosphere and tailgate and stay in the local hotel for a second night. Or hightail it into Boston?

    Here we go: Your group block has been setup in our system and below are the instructions to make reservations into the group block. Individuals will be responsible for making their own reservations. All reservations require a credit card at the time of booking. Guests can call the hotel directly at 781-769-7000 and choose option 2 for sales or option 0 for the front desk. They should mention the UK Patriots block. They can also book online at www.bostonnorwood.hamptoninn.com . Under "Add Special Rate Codes, they should enter your group booking code, which is UKP For all online reservations through our Hampton Inn Website the GROUP CODE is UKP. We always setup the group a couple of days prior to the actual dates, in case some guests want to come in early. There are no rooms blocked for those additional days however and the group rate may or may not apply for those days booked outside of the contracted dates. Any guests that need to stay outside of the group block dates should make their reservations directly with Sue in sales. Please let everyone know that they must make their reservations by the end of day September 8, 2018. On September 9, all rooms not booked in the block will drop back into hotel inventory and the group rate will no longer apply. From: Sue Gallogly Director of Sales Hampton Inn by Hilton Boston Norwood 434 Providence Highway Norwood, MA 02062 (781) 769-7000 I will be watching the list of reservations made so only the Roadtrippers will get the benefit of the group discount. Anyone not on Mandy's final list of approved applications will have their reservation deleted. Also please remember that if you need reservations for both games and you are not staying at the hotel between games, you must make 2 separate reservations.

    The agreement with the Hampton Inn has been finalized. In a few business days I will receive instructions for making reservations within the UKPatriots room block. I will post it here immediately upon receipt. The important points: 1) We have available rooms from 9/29 to 10/4 (beginning 10/5 the Hotel is already sold out to anther group). 2) We have double rooms (2 Queen Beds) at $159/night and single rooms (1 King Bed) @$149/night. A 11.7% tax is not included in the prices. 3) Reservations must be made by 9/8 at which time any unreserved rooms within the block will be returned by the hotel to their inventory of available rooms. 4) Reservations and payment are the responsibility of each individual. Sue Gallogly, Director of Sales at the Hampton Inn, is looking forward to meeting the UKPatriots. More information to follow.

    Just checking Howard, it's that old thing about us speaking the same language, but sometimes meaning different things. As long as there's two separate beds in the room (what we'd call a twin room) that's fine. I know that's how they were on the last trip I did, but those where the days when we stayed at The Courtyard in Norwood.

    When you say Double Bed Rooms, do you mean rooms with 1 double size bed or rooms with 2 beds ? Just thinking of the sharers who if its the first case, would need to be very good friends

    Howard superb effort thank you. I was expecting a lot more due to the time of year. In 2016 we had the same weekend and stayed at the courtyard I think it was at least an extra $50 a night.

    I'm getting Double Bed Rooms and Single Bed Rooms but I need to know asap if anyone aside from Jonas (already requested) needs a handicapped room. I should have more info by next week. 1) If anyone wants both games and will not be staying during the week they need 2 reservations. 2) Ther are no doubles available for Friday October 5th just in case anyone is interested.

    Thats great news, I had a look at hotel costs while planning the trip and they were all far more expensive than that so if I get tickets then I would definitely be booking that deal.

    I heard from the Hampton Inn. We will have rooms from 9/29 to 10/5, both singles and doubles. We are getting a discount of 18% to $159/night on singles and 20% to $149/night on doubles. The only thing left is to get the number of rooms needed, which I will estimate based on Mandy's latest list. In case Warren is interested, any rooms not reserved by 9/8 go back to the hotel inventory. Once I get the contract signed, the hotel will set up the reservation info. All reservations are the responsibility of each individual. Sue at the Hampton Inn wants us there. More info to follow.
