S8OT: Columbus Road Trip 10/26 I am willing to organize a bus to Columbus on 10/26. We haven't managed to come out in a bus for quite some time now (I am not counting the famous Fado bus last year). We have not had a sizeable representation on tour this year--I am still to see more than 50 of away support at a road game. I think Columbus is a great opportunity to take advantage of. The game against Columbus may be very meaningful. The Fire may be fighting for the Supporters' Shield. We, the supporters should help the Fire in reaching their first hardware of the year, don't you think? The same rules that we were applying to our previous road trips would apply: we would leave from Chicago (location to be determined but probably from somewhere on NW side or from downtown) at around 7 AM on Sunday, October 26th. This would help us arrive at the Columbus Crew Stadium at around 2 PM Eastern time. The game starts at 4 PM and ends around 6 PM. We would be again on the road by 7 PM and return to Chicago around midnight. The 4 PM game time is actually very convenient this time around. Additionally, the 7 AM departure time shoud be any bad because October 26th will be the date when Daylight Savings Time ends so we will sleep one more hour and 7 AM will be the "old" 8 AM. I am assuming the cost will be around $45 if we completely fill the bus (bus companies charge huge chunks of money recently--somebody start a new charter outfit and make cabbage, lettuce, greenies, alfa-alfa, bread, etc.!). I am going to pass this info during the opener on 10/10 but in order to see if the bus trip is feasible, please, pretty please, PM me ASAP with your interest in the trip and the number of people you will be taking with you. Marcin P.S. The Ultras may be a little downsized on the road this time because Mirek is getting married the day before the trip. I am going to park the bus in front of the banquet house and take them all in their suits and ties though.
