-We need a minimum of 40 individuals to charter the bus.The bus will depart the South gate of the Air Force Academy at aprx. 4:00 P.M. The bus will stop in Monument (Park and Ride area) at aprx 4:15 P.M. and arrive at the Coors Center (Univ of CO Arena) at 6:00 P.M. for a 7 P.M. tipoff.  No "dinner" stop on this trip.

- Cost for the trip per individual is $50.00 (includes ticket which cost $20.00}  (Should ticket not be needed the cost would be $30.00)  Should you have an interest in participating on this Bus Trip please reply to DickP.. A  sign up sheet for the trip  will be available at the Regis game at the FOAFBB table in the concourse.

A Successful Bus Trip to watch our Falcons win over CSU

CSU Bus trip Feb 08

FoAFBB organized the trip with over 50 members and they were met by several carloads of Section 8. We definately tried to let it be known that we were there to support our Falcons!  Coach Jeff Reynolds, in his post game interview, mentioned that Friends of Air Force Basketball brought a bus full of people to the game.  He said that the players had mentioned how nice it was to have support in the crowd.
