Tangerine Bowl-Shuttle Available From Ramada

submitted by Jim Nickles on Monday, December 10 at 11:25 AM

You asked for it, you've got it (if you want it). Ok, as of 11:00 a.m. on Dec. 10, you guys have booked 54 rooms with 144 people for the Tangerine Bowl. I got a price from Mears Transportation for a full size bus, with bathroom, for 9 hours which holds 47 people for $693 ($15.00 each). A $250 damage deposit is required if drinking on the bus. I will reserve 2 for now just in case but will need to cancel on the 18th if no response. I recommend that someone take charge, get a head count, and give me a call at 1-800-327-9170 ext. 662.

In addition, the Ramada will be offering a 3 hour open bar (beer and well drinks) from 6-9 p.m. on Wed Dec. 19 with appetizers for $20 a head.

Damn, looks like I'm taking the drunk bus.

We need to collect a list of names and make a manifest for this guy.

I guess I'll elect myself as master of the manifest. Any objections? Okay, none. Send me an email with NAMES (not numbers) of people on this bus.

Lets all give a hand to Maverick for taking control of the "drunk bus" list. It looks like we have at least 22 (half a bus) as of this mornings postings. Hopefully you all have e-mailed maverick with additional riders. If you know someone who is staying at another hotel (I don't know why they would) they can still park here and ride over with the group as well as come over for the open bar on the 19th.

Need more info? Give me (Jim) a call at 1-800-327-9170 ext .662

P.S. Golf packages available if you would like to extend your stay.

Funny you asked that question. We were thinking the same thing, we were trying to figure out when a majority of you would be arriving. It looks like a 10 to 11 hour drive. I assume you will be late arrivals on the 19th. A open bar wouldn't work a 6p.m. so, how does an open bar from 2 to 5 with the bus leaving at 5:15 or so? 1 to 4 open bar and bus leave at 4:15 so you have some tailgate time before the game at 7:30. Let me know, I'm here for you.

Thanks for the compliment. Just talked to the Chef. Let me bounce this off you. For $2 more ($22) per person, we could do a tailgate party for you instead of the open bar. This would include draft beer, hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, baked beans, etc... The bus could leave at 3:30 or 4, get there by 4:30 or 5 and then TAILGATE until the game. What do you think of that?

That sounds like an awesome deal. I wish I could join, but I have to wait to leave after my graduation. I will not get down there probably until 4 or 5 in the morning on the 20th. See you all down there though. Has anyone heard anything about having to park near I-4 and taking a bus to the stadium? We need to possibly designate a spot for a big @$$ tailgate party.

Jim that sounds great! As long as there is plenty of beer we will all be happy!

Arrive at the stadium at 4:30 gives us a few hours to throw down!

Will it be allowed at the stadium? Tailgating and alchol?

I have the Tangerine bowl visitor guide in my hand and quote "Tailgating is permitted in City of Orlando lots, care should be given to avoid traffic arriving to park in adjacent spaces." I also called the Stadium who also confirmed tailgate parties are allowed. I am still trying to find out where the buses will be able to park. Lets keep working on the head count for the buses just in case we need a third or forth!!!

So is it $15 for the bus, and $22 for the tailgate=$37 total? And we could choose one or other if we wanted? Just wanted to clarify!

Thanks Jim for working with us and being supportive of the Pack! We should have another open bar after we win the game!

Ok, to clarify, for a full bus (47 people) the cost of the bus is $15. The beer, soda, hamburgers, dogs..... is $22. Total for both is $37.00. If you just need a ride, you can do that, or just want to meet the bus for the party, you can also do that. I just have to figure out how to collect the $ for both prior to the 20th to secure the bus and figure out how much beer to bring. Any suggestions?

Well if we could get some people to say put a deposit down of $20 and give it to me, I can send you a check or put it all on a card, then give ya the cash down there or something like that.
Or i can just have them pay me the full amount....
hmm?

Beer? Depending on how much, but if we are there 3 hours before the game, we can put a hurtin on some brew! Can we have some wings?

Normally, it should only take a half hour to get to the citrus bowl, but with traffic, it could take about an hour. We could leave at 3:30 just to make sure. This will still give you three hours of Tailgate time before the game. We will work it all out - still have a week to go. Only need a days notice for extra kegs. The faster we have a confirmed list of people riding and drinking, the better.
Keep up the good work!
