Pittsburgh Sold Out - Buffalo/Syracuse trip a Success

Jacket Backers Celebrate the 6-1 victory in Buffalo




Watch for Details about trips to Detroit, St. Louis and to see the Crunch play in Cleveland!




The Buffalo/Syracuse trip was a huge success.  The Jacket Backers were met in Buffalo by members of the Crunch Corps fan club.  We were treated to a phenomenal 6-1 road victory by the CBJ.   Buffalo fans were surly and it felt great.


With the help of Buffalo legend Danny Gare and a couple of Buffalo natives we had the inside scoop on the nightlife in Buffalo.  Nancy and the crew at the Croc Bar graciously invited us to join them for free cover, drink vouchers and happy hour buffet pre-game.  Some of us returned to the Croc Bar post game.  Incidentally talking to friendly strangers, we met Fedor Tyutin's brother-in-law.  He's now a Jackets fan!


Some of us went to look at Niagara Falls through the clouds, then it was on to Syracuse.


The Crunch played an excellent game against the defending AHL champions the Chicago Wolves, winning 5-3.  It seemed like we had been here before, as Slap Shot was filmed in the Syracuse War Memorial.  A tribute to Reggie Dunlop aka Paul Newman hangs in the rafters.  Going undefeated for the weekend was only icing on the cake.  Thank you to the Crunch Corps for treating us to dinner and drinks post game at the Ale 'n' Angus Pub.


A little snow and a detour to the Jell-O Museum (where there were jello puck molds on display, making it a hockey-themed destination after all...) closed out a fantastic weekend as everyone arrived safely back in Columbus.


Travel Update

Buffalo - November 14


Pittsburgh - February 6



Buffalo - We have a block of 26 tickets purchased in Section 323.  Tickets are $66 for members and $86 for non members.  So far 10 of the tickets have sold and all of those 10 are planing to continue to Syracuse on Saturday to see the Syracuse Crunch battle the Chicago Wolves.  Let us know if you want to journey on to Syracuse so that we can get the proper number of tickets there. 

Pittsburgh - We have a block of 40 tickets purchased in Section B31.  Tickets are $120 for members and $140 for non-members.  Tickets in Pittsburgh are a rare find, with pairs unavailable from the ticket office.  We have 30 people committed and 10 tickets remaining (yes we have had a few people drop out and a few others buy).  We have not yet worked on any lodging arrangements for Pittsburgh.

Contact Jeff or Anne Little at travel@jacketbackers.org to purchase your tickets or if you have any questions.

In Buffalo, many of us are planning on staying at the Adam's Mark that is an easy walk to the game.  They were unwilling to offer us a group rate but the best prices can be obtained directly through their website.  Currently $139 per night.  In Syracuse, we will be staying at the Marriott Renaissance Hotel.  They have offered us a group rate of $105 per night.  To receive this rate use the codes "cbjcbjg" - for a king room or "cbjcbjs" - for a room with 2 double beds.  Currently these rooms are $179 through Travelocity.
