UPDATED 10/6/13 -SOLD OUT - Visit our Nation's Capital and cheer your Columbus Blue Jackets to victory!  The Jacket Backers have purchased a block of 30 tickets for the 10/19/13 game in Washington.

The tickets are in Section 432 & 433 and each ticket will be encoded with a $15 voucher for food, beer or wine at the Verizon Center.  Your cost per ticket and food voucher is $95.  Due to limited availability these tickets may be purchased by members only (members are permitted to bring family members and/or a guest).  If purchased directly from the Capitals these tickets would cost $88 plus $13.75 in fees per ticket and not include the food voucher.  

Purchase your tickets now with our "Buy Now" button below.  Space is limited.  

In addition to the tickets, The Jacket Backers have reserved a block of rooms at the Hampton Inn in Silver Spring, Maryland.  The room rate based on double occupancy is $119 ($134.47 with taxes).  Valet parking ($15) is limited in the hotel garage, but free parking is available in the "Town Square Garage" directly behind the hotel lot.  We will provide a discount code for you to use when making your reservation online to receive this rate.  Reservations must be made by 10/3/13 to receive our group rate.  The Hampton Inn is located three blocks from the Red Line Metro stop with easy access to the Verizon Center and other Washington DC attractions.

We apologize to anyone that was hoping for this to be a bus trip.  That would have been our preference as well.  But due to the cost and immediate need to purchase tickets, we felt that trying to make a bus trip work to Washington would have prevented us from providing a variety of other travel opportunities that we will be announcing in the near future.

These tickets are currently sold out.  Only use the Buy Now button below if you have already made arrangements to purchase these tickets!
