More Information

            

.      Lamers Transportation bus       will pick us up on Wednesday, July 24th  at The Winn Dixie Parking       Lot just outside Sumter Landing. Please park your cars in the parking on       the Morse Blvd side of the lot.  PLEASE BE AT THE WINN DIXIE LOT BY       8:45AM – the earlier the better because we have 2 buses going on this       trip.  Make sure you leave enough time to park.  The bus will       leave the Winn Dixie parking lot promptly at 9:00AM!!Please be aware that       there will be walking from the bus to the gate and then to our seats at       the stadium and stairs down to your seats -  If you need a walker or       wheel chair please bring it with you.
 

2.    Travel time is       approximately 1hr 30 – 2hours depending on traffic – We are leaving a       little earlier than planned to allow for morning traffic and for exiting       the bus, walking to and going through security then walking to your       seats.  This process takes time.   If we arrive early than you       will have time to take a nap or grab some lunch before the game.
 

3.    I will hand out your tickets       before you get on the bus.  Your envelope with the tickets in it       will show which bus you are on and will show who your contact is along       with the contact’s phone number.
 

4.    Please       make sure you have a cell phone with you at all times – I will verify       your cell phone numbers as you get on the bus. This is a requirement so       if you or your partner does not have a cell phone with you, you will not       be able to go on this trip.  This is required in case of an       emergency or if you get separated from the group.
 

5.    Those of you that       are traveling by yourself please provide me with an emergency contact       name and cell number. This is needed in case we have an emergency and is       required for you to attend this event.  If you have already provided       me with this info just disregard!
 

6.    If you have to cancel please let       me know ASAP.
 

7.    A number of you have requested       to be seated near friends which is fine as long as I know ahead to time.        Due to our request for additional tickets for the game, we are       split between two sections,  so if you would like to sit near       certain friends I will need to know within the next week.   If you       have already provided me with this info just disregard!
 

8.    If you have any       issues or concerns please contact me at lrmitch@comcast.net and please       make sure you have my cell phone number with you at all times during our       trip – it is 239 293-8652 and on the 2nd bus your contact is Len Hathaway       and his cell number is 352 598-0296.   If you have any EMERGENCY       issues before the game please call me on my cell – DON’T CALL ON MY HOME       PHONE NUMBER because I may not get the message in time.
 

Regards,
