Maryland game bus trip info

Ryan Phalen is a UConn fan who has organized roads trips in the past, and has put together a package for next season's game at Maryland. Here is the info he sent for anyone interested.

As a heads up, I’ve put together a bus trip and hotel rate for the UConn/Maryland football game. If people don’t want to join the bus, they’re more than welcome to use the hotel rate so we can get the UConn fans all in one place. The game is on Saturday, September 15.

Given that we don’t know what time the game is yet, I’m planning on leaving Friday September 14th from Connecticut around noontime, and coming back Sunday morning. Cost would be $85/person for the bus ride. Email me at Phalen@ironwoodcap.com if you’re interested in joining the bus. In the past we’ve done pick-ups in Torrington, Avon, Manchester, Waterbury, and North Haven, so wherever there’s a group we’ll make a convenient pick-up somewhere.

For the hotel, it doesn’t get much closer- the UMUC Marriott is about 500 yards from the football stadium. The group rate is $104/night, $15 below the retail rate- I’ve got a block of 35 double rooms and 15 king rooms for both nights (Friday and Saturday) with 10 rooms on Thursday and Sunday if people wanted to stay longer on either side. If you just want the hotel, please reserve these soon (and please make sure you do it under the “Connecticut Football Fans” group) so that I can keep a good number of rooms available for those who will be coming on the bus/buses. You can reserve the rooms now- the block is set up and you won’t pay anything until we go down there. If you’re interested, call Marriott Reservations at 1 (800) 453-0309 or (301) 985-7300 to make reservations, and identify yourself as part of the “Connecticut Football Fans” group staying at The Marriott Inn & Conference Center, University of Maryland University College, located at 3501 University Boulevard E, Adelphi, MD 20783-7998. If the block is full, please email me and let me know so I can expand it.

Let me know if you have any questions. Look forward to seeing you all! Tailgate information to come at a later date- working up a UConn tailgate that we hope can be bigger and better than it was at Michigan!
