With all of the frenzy of the lockout and the ensuing fallout of free agency and mayhem, I’m getting tons of requests for the WNST Purple Football Roadtrip information. It took a week to put it all together but we proudly announce four total roadtrips for your selection and we’ll also be throwing our traditional Purple Pep Rallies and Parties in virtually every city on the road in 2011.
Our first trip is next Thursday to Philadelphia to see the Ravens first game of the preseason. It’s just $89 for the entire evening of fun in the City of Brotherly Love.
If you are interested in a specific party on the road and you’ve already made your travel plans, simply drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you on the “first information” list once the parties go on sale next week.

Here’s a full lineup of all of our trips for 2011:
2011 Purple Roadtrip to Jacksonville (Oct. 22-25)
You asked for a more inexpensive way to get to Jacksonville for the HUGE PURPLE PARTY so we’re offering our longest busride of the year — but they’re always kind fun, really — down to North Florida for the Baltimore game the weekend of Oct. 22 through 25.
THIS IS OUR FEATURED TRIP FOR 2011!!!!!
We’ll leave White Marsh Mall area on Sat. Oct. 22 at 6 am with a quick stop at I-95 UMBC Park and Ride at 6:30 am and will set sail for the 764-mile journey straight down I-95. We expect to arrive in time for dinner on Saturday night. You’ll have all day Sunday and most of the day Monday for the gigantic WNST Purple Party.
The game isn’t until Monday night so we’ll have plenty of time to roam, gather in purple masses and tailgate before the big game.
Our WNST bus will leave Jacksonville at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning, Oct. 25th and return to Baltimore later that night.
WNST Purple Roadtrip includes: bus ride on Gunther Motorcoach plus beer, soda & Chick-fil-A for the ride down, three nights hotel at Courtyard Marriott in Jacksonville, WNST Purple Party ticket, plus an upper deck seat for the Jacksonville-Baltimore game.

Our trip returns on Tuesday, Dec. 19th to BWI.
