Apr 19, 2015 - From Mark Patterson, Tour Manager:
The tour this year will be to Providence, Rhode Island from 20 – 23 August 2015. We will be playing the ‘Rhody Old Cocks’ on Saturday 22nd. The tour will run along the lines of the previous trip to Boston with the coach leaving Ottawa early on the Thursday morning and departing Providence early on the Sunday morning for the trip back to Ottawa, it is anticipated that the bus trip will take up to 36 beers each….sorry 9-10 hours !!!
We have secured a local hotel for around $120 (Canadian) a night that is about 4 miles from the city centre.
The total cost of the bus and driver (with accommodation) is anticipated to be approximately $5200 and will be covered by the tour fund. The Coach will be provided by 417 Bus Lines and we will be requesting the same driver as the Boston trip due to his flexibility and attitude around libations on the bus !!!
The cost is anticipated to be approximately $200 per person based on 2 sharing a room for the players, associated members and WAGS.
What I need for finalizing all the details is your commitment to tour by 27 April along with any accompanying people. In addition you need to include if you will be taking a hotel room, or if you are a single, will you be taking a room or do you want to share to split the cost. Players are encouraged to sort out who you will be sharing with in advance !!!!!
A $50 tour deposit will be required by 14 May.
