Update 2/4/14 - If you want to join us on the trip please sign up below or contact Chris at to make other arrangements by Thursday 2/6/14.  We currently have 91 signed up for the trip and have room for 20 more on the two buses.  We need to have our ticket and hotel room count finalized on Friday.

A year without a bus trip to Nashville is kind of like a lockout (but we don't want to talk about that).  When the schedule was released - there it was - a Saturday in March - nothing on the schedule for Friday or Sunday - Nashville, Away 3/8/14.  Well that could only mean one thing, a Jacket Backers Bus Trip!

We have a block of 120 tickets reserved in Club Sections 223 & 224.  We have our rooms booked at the Best Western Downtown - Convention Center.  We have 2 busses reserved.  So let's hit the road.

The Best Western is only .4 miles away from Bridgestone Arena and all the pleasures of Broadway (Tootsies, Jack's BBQ, The Stage, Printers Alley...).  So we won't have to cross the bridge or deal with re-construction this year.

The cost of the trip is $230 per person based on double hotel occupancy (see additional pricing options below).  The trip includes:

We will leave Columbus early Saturday morning.  The bus will make a couple of stops so we can stretch and grab some lunch.  We should arrive in Nashville by mid-afternoon.  There will be plenty of time to check in and enjoy the sites and entertainment of Nashville before and after the 7:00 game.

Reserve your seats now, as this popular trip can fill up fast.  You will not want to get closed out.  Pricing options are as follows; $150 per person deposit holds your seat or pay in full $310 per person for private room, $230 per person for double occupancy, $210 per person for triple occupancy and $200 per person for quadruple occupancy.  We also have a limited number of tickets only (no bus, no room) available for $74.  Prices are for members: non-members add $25 per person.  Or just join the club already!!

Please note, all bus passengers must be at least 21 years old.
