  1. So - for anyone interested, we have taken the first step of reaching out to the Patriots to see which games we might be offered. This initial process usually takes a couple of weeks as they are still establishing the pricing tiers, which games will be premium games etc. All updates will be posted here once known.

    Thanks to all who attended for making it another great weekend. See you all next year with the 16th (apparently!) Anniversary Roadtrip :-)

    Gameday arrangements

    CALLING ALL ROADTRIPPERS!! Only 3 weeks now until the first of our two roadtrip games on Sunday 30th September. Here are the gameday arrangements - please pay attention to the timings as you will need to know these to be able to collect your tickets on the day. This is especially important if you are going directly to the game and not travelling as part of the group from the hotel. We are delighted to be tailgating again with the legendary Tailgater2000 group - these guys are brilliant fun and provide a splendid pre/post-game get-together. Note: you will need to make a contribution to the tailgate on the day if you are taking advantage of their food/drinks. Their tailgate takes place in parking lot P10 which is directly across the road from the stadium itself. The actual pole number will be posted closer to the time as it sometimes changes. Sunday 30th September (vs Miami): 0830 - Leave gameday hotel in car group 0900 - Reach stadium, start tailgating! 1130 - LATEST TIME TO PICK UP TICKETS FROM TAILGATE 1300 - game starts Thursday 4th October (vs Indy): 1530 - Leave gameday hotel in car group 1600 - Reach stadium, start tailgating! 1830 - LATEST TIME TO PICK UP TICKETS FROM TAILGATE 2000 - game starts What to do now: Swindon Patriot (Mark) is co-ordinating car arrangements from the hotel. Please comment here to confirm if you are travelling from the hotel and need a car place OR if you are travelling directly to the game and meeting at the tailgate. Look out for a PM to confirm your mobile phone number in case we need to contact you during the trip. As usual, any questions - shout up!

    Thanks Mark for sorting this. And thanks to all the volunteer drivers. Usual rules apply - if you are a passenger in someone's car, you are expected to cover the cost of parking at the stadium. Drivers do not pay. Parking is $40 per car.

    Mark has described things perfectly. Our friend Paul (bruschifan) will bring along some Sam Adams which is covered under your game ticket - but the rest of tailgate offerings need a contribution. There are cash cans on the tables to put your contribution into so please go ahead and do that on the day itself. The tailgate is organized by Tailgate2000 group and they are a LOT of fun. It's a fantastic opportunity to experience a proper tailgate and mix with a lot of different Pats fans. The tailgate itself is held in Parking lot P10 - which is just across the road from the stadium. I don't have the specific pole number yet (the poles are the way to orientate yourselves and get to the right place in a big space!) but that will be confirmed before the games so keep an eye open! Another polite reminder that if you are coming in independently (via Rally Buss or other means) you MUST come and find us to collect your tickets - at least 1.30hrs before gametime.

    My life is ruled by lists and spreadsheets. It's the only way to make sure I don't forget stuff!

    No formal plans but hopefully those of you at the hotel can find each other. A few of us will be at a wedding reception over at Salem but I know some will then travel over to the hotel late on.

    If it helps with your decision, you need to be at the tailgate to collect your tickets by 1130hrs LATEST.

    2018 Roadtrip planning thread

    Yes - you will be asked to meet at a specific organized tailgate before the game to collect your ticket. You will need to be there at least 2 hours before gametime. More details to follow closer to the time.

    One week left until payment deadline. We have about half our payments in. One applicant has decided not to proceed, and another is proving very difficult to contact, despite requests on here, text, email so far. If you know this is you and you do not make contact by the payment deadline, I will have to remove you from the list. If you no longer require the tickets, please confirm. thanks.

    Neither. In Juno, she shouts "Thundercats are GO!" as she goes into labour. We good?

    2018 Roadtrip planning thread

    OK - Thundercats are GO! We have received confirmation of our allocation and pricing. I am delighted to confirm we will be able to fulfill all applications as per the original closure date (see below for a reminder of numbers). Date: Sunday 30th September 1300hrs EST vs Miami Dolphins Payment per ticket £190 (the Pats classify this as a ‘marquee’ matchup). This is for End Zone seating. Unfortunately we can’t get a block of tickets for this game, they will instead be clustered in pairs and fours, so we can’t guarantee you’ll be able to snuggle up with your bestie!! This includes an allowance for liquid refreshment pre- and post-game. We anticipate continuing the arrangement of the last couple of years by tailgating with the Tailgate 2000 crew – separate cash contribution on the day for this. Date: Thursday 4th October 2020hrs EST vs Indianapolis Colts Payment per ticket £105 (the Pats classify this as a ‘premier’ matchup). This is for Upper level midfield seating. The Pats should be able to supply a more-or-less continuous block for us all. This includes an allowance for liquid refreshment pre- and post-game. We anticipate continuing the arrangement of the last couple of years by tailgating with the Tailgate 2000 crew – separate cash contribution on the day for this. Here are your next steps: By the end of today, you will receive a PM from Mrs L: Please confirm you still require your tickets at the above prices. Please make payment per the bank details within the PM. Payment deadline is by end of the day on Wednesday 25th July.

    We will be informed prior to the open sale (per usual practice anyway). Hoping to hear early next week.

    We are still waiting for confirmation of both allocation and pricing. We were in touch with the contact yesterday who said the request is under review with team ownership (standard practice) and promises to let us know as soon as he can.

    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.

  23. We are delighted to announce the games for the 2018 UKPatriots Roadtrip – that’s right, GAMES! This year, we are doing things a little differently as we have been offered the chance to purchase tickets for two games, which are scheduled 5 days apart in late September, early October: Date: Sunday 30th September 1300hrs Venue: Gillette Stadium Vs: Miami Dolphins And/or: Date: Thursday 4th October 2020hrs Venue: Gillette Stadium Vs: Indianapolis Colts Here is how it will work: only one of the games – the Miami game on Sunday 30th September - will be designated as the official roadtrip game, where we will get together as a group on the day. For the other game, you will be on your own apart from collecting your tickets on the day of the game/sitting together for the game. Folks can apply to attend either one of the games OR both games – as long as the usual roadtrip rules are met (see below). Here are the rules for applying for tickets for this year’s roadtrip from the UK. Please only apply for the trip if you are serious about attending! Roadtrip Rules: - To be accepted for the roadtrip, you must be a full registered member of UKPatriots.com forum and fanclub. If not already a full member, please PM jaco for details on how to become a full registered member. IMPORTANT: Being a member of the Facebook group only does not entitle you to apply for tickets – the Facebook group is merely one of several social media/communications channels and does not represent full membership of the fanclub. - Full registered members may apply for tickets to either one OR both games. - Maximum 2 tickets per game per initial application. (You may express an interest in more than 2 tickets in case eventual availability permits – we will keep a reserve list.) - FULL deposit per ticket paid upfront (amount/date to be confirmed once pricing is known). Includes: cost of ticket (face value of tickets will be confirmed once known). To give an idea, last year we were assigned $160 tickets, for which a payment of £130 was required. - Note: payment of deposit does not guarantee ticket assignment and acceptance of deposit does not constitute a contract to supply tickets. If we can’t get enough tickets the unlucky applicants will receive a full refund. Should demand outstrip supply and we need to prioritise applications, factors such as membership level, sustained board activity and contribution to site funding will be taken into account. All final decisions will be taken by the moderator team. - Once ticket deposits are paid, drop-outs are non-refundable. We will attempt to sell drop-outs but make no guarantee of this OR you can try to sell on to someone from this board. Tickets MAY NOT be re-sold on ebay or any other public auction site or to non-members of this board. Be aware that tickets are only made available to us on gameday at the stadium itself. What to do NOW – initial applications to be received by Friday 15th June. Send PM via UKPatriots to mrs laz, with the following details: a. Number of requested tickets per game (max 2 per game) b. Name c. Home Address d. Telephone number e. Email address f. Payment method: cheque or bank transfer (note – all transfer fees at cost of sender – please add). g. Confirm acceptance of the above Roadtrip Rules mrs laz will PM back to acknowledge application receipt, with the appropriate details for payment following once the ticket pricing has been confirmed. Once payment funds are received, mrs laz will confirm back by PM and your name will be on the initial list. As always, do not book any travel until you have been told you are on the confirmed list. Any questions, feel free to ask!
