Please see bus information for Yankees Game tomorrow evening at 7pm.
The buses will pick teams up at ICAHN STADIUM for collection at 5PM. They will leave as soon as they have the designated amount of people but they must be on the road as soon as possible to ensure that the all patrons get to the game before the start of the game.
At the pick up clubs must nominate one group leader that will call the bus driver as soon as the game is over or when it is nearly finished to ensure bus drivers return on time.
Group leaders MUST
1) Get the drivers cell number
2) give the drivers their cell number (make sure you have enough phone battery to get in touch)
3) have the address of the hotel and if possible a mapquest of directions for driver just in case!
Please see me tomorrow at the registration tent if you have any questions
