Fan Bus for Friday’s Game

Dear Red Raider Nation,

Your Red Raiders face a tough match-up in the Division II South Playoffs versus third-seeded King Phillips Regional High School this Friday.  We need as many students and fans as possible at the game to support our team.

The Barnstable Quarterback Club has chartered a bus to take some fans to the game.  The bus is open to all fans and seats shall be allotted on a first come basis.  The bus is free to anyone wearing something RED, and $99 to anyone who is not.  Kidding aside, the bus is free to everyone and donations are greatly appreciated.  Information regarding the bus is below.  We hope to see you there!

Sign-Up Information: The QBC shall maintain a sign-up sheet to ensure as many fans as possible can attend the game.  There are 45 open spots on the bus and availability is first come first serve.  Once all slots are filled a waiting list shall be created and if the demand is strong enough another bus may be chartered. To reserve your spot on the bus please email with the names of the people in your group.  A fan may sign-up up to 4 people (themselves +3) at a time.  Please include the name along with an emergency contact number for each.  The QBC shall confirm your seat on the bus through email and that confirmation email is required on Friday to get on the bus. If you have received a confirmation email and are no longer going to the game please let us know as soon as possible so we can make arrangements for people on the waiting list.

Bus Information: The bus shall pick-up and drop-off at the BHS gymnasium entrance.  The bus shall leave from BHS at 5:15 pm.  Only fans that have a confirmed sign-up email shall be allowed on the bus, and they must check in prior to getting on the bus to and from King Phillips.  If a person on the sign-up sheet is not present at 5:05 pm they shall forfeit their seat to the next person on the wait list.  Fans are not allowed to bring food, drinks or bags of any kind on the bus.  The bus shall leave King Phillips 15 minutes after the game has concluded.

Game Tickets: Fans on the bus are responsible for purchasing their own tickets to the game once the bus arrives at the stadium.  Tickets are $5 for students and parents.  Senior citizens and students in grade 5 and under are free.

Go Big Red!!!
