    2015 Roadtrip planning and discussion thread

    Less than a week to go now! So here's a quick reminder of the arrangements for the day of the game. Kick-off is 4.25pm EST. Gates to the parking lots usually open 4 hours before this. With this in mind please gather in Reception of the RT hotel (Hampton Inn Norwood) by 1145hrs latest We will leave as a group from the RT hotel by around midday. We are a group of 30 people total, so that means we will take between 5 and 6 cars, aiming for Parking Lot P2 We will aim to park as close to each other as possible in the parking lot - however, if the group is split, you will all need a way to find the group. please make sure you have the mobile number of at least one other member of the group. Rat Noir has kindly gathered phone numbers and will distribute the list shortly. Make sure you are on it. If you are a passenger in someone else's vehicle, you are expected to cover parking for the vehicle ($40 per car). Drivers do not pay. Game tickets will be collected on Game Day from the Ticket office. They will be distributed at the tailgate. It is your responsibility to be at the tailgate to collect your ticket/s. We will not be running around after you on Game Day to make sure you get your ticket!

    As Warren said, thanks for volunteering. We are just getting rough numbers for now so we are not left without transport on the day (hopefully!)

    2015 ROADTRIP POLL

    ....Philadelphia is it. Locking this thread now - please proceed to the application thread if interested.

    2015 ROADTRIP POLL

    OK, we have heard from the Pats, and our options are as follows: Thursday Oct 29 DOLPHINS Sunday Nov 8 REDSKINS Monday Nov 23 BILLS Sunday Dec 6 EAGLES Due to the club development in the End Zone we will NOT be seated in the EZ. Instead, we are being offered seats in the lower portion of the 300s section. The intent is to give the Pats our choice and a reasonable idea of numbers within a couple of weeks. To this end, ONLY IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT GOING, please vote for your FIRST choice option using the poll. Add an entry to the thread and, if you have a second preference, state what it is in the thread. We will close the thread Sunday 6th June, hopefully with a clear favourite option. Soon after that there’ll be another thread with the ticket application requirements. Some points to consider: Obviously the Monday and Thursday games may require a longer time commitment if you are planning on a weekend trip. If you want to see Boston dressed for Xmas the Eagles is your option as the U.S. tends not to decorate until after thanksgiving. We don’t yet know what the prices will be – I’d guess that the fins and maybe Bills will be Premier ($100 last season in the 300s) and the others will be Marquee ($135). Allow ~£100 for the latter including our tailgating costs. The cutoff date for payment for tickets will be late June – no payment, no ticket! Now get those thinking caps on……

    Usually between 20 and 30. I think 34 was the record.

    2015 ROADTRIP POLL

    Well yeah, that's why I included it in the poll The Pats are aware how many normally make the trip so I doubt they would offer us a game where there wasn't a good chance of accommodating our request.

    2015 ROADTRIP POLL

    All depends on how long you decide to stay, and where you fly from. Game ticket/tailgate contribution will account for £100. Transport to/from game: we car-share, so contribute $10-$20 to the driver Hotel nights- assume $60 per night if you can find someone to share with, or less in a hostel Flights - £300-500 depending where you fly from Food: figure $50 per day? Spends: totally up to you!

    Perhaps keep this thread for the London party plans (led by Swindy) and start a new thread for "possible" SB trip discussions. But please dont jinx anything and take owt for granted. A lot of football to play yet.

  18. We have been offered a choice of games for this year's Roadtrip: Raiders - September 21st Lions - November 23rd Due to the new pricing structures in place this year, the following information is very important to note: Raiders is a Marquee game and tickets are $205 face value. This will correspond to an approximate price of £147.00 per ticket including tailgate contribution. Lions is a Premiere game and tickets are $150 face value. This will correspond to an approximate price of £112.00 per ticket including tailgate contribution. If you are seriously interested in attending this year, please vote for your preferred game. This poll will remain open until next Wednesday - 21st May. The game with the highest number of votes will be our Roadtrip game for this year. We will then open the application process as usual and look to have all payments cleared by mid-June, to be able to pay the Patriots for the group allocation. Please note: this is NOT the application thread but merely a poll to decide on the game. Nobody is guaranteed any ticket at this stage. Do not make any travel arrangements on this basis!
