Chartering a Bus if we end up in New Mexico
***PARKING UPDATE 12/12****
Looking out for us, UTSA PD has updated our parking location to Brakenridge Ave Lot 3 (BRK3). It is closer to campus. Arrival 7:30 and Departure at 8am remain the same.
Directions: Coming off I-10, take UTSA BLVD until you hit Barshop Blvd and take right. Continue around the circle to the entrance on your Right. The lot is on the NorthWest corner of Barshop and Brackenridge. It is indicated by the Purple 5 on the attached Map. https://www.utsa.edu/campusservices/Docs/Park-Trans_Map.pdf
Another updated info sheet. (12/5)
Thank you so much for joining us on this historical and awesome road trip to our Roadrunners' first bowl ever! Below are some details that will come in handy for our trip.
We will be chartering a 56 passenger bus. The bus will be equipped with WiFi (we have been told there is a chance the bus will not have wifi), a few TV screens, power outlets, and a restroom. Our departure is scheduled for Friday, December 16th at 8AM putting us in Albuquerque hopefully by 7PM. Cost is $140 per rider, and that can be sent through PayPal to tailgateSA@gmail.com if you haven't already done so. It's super important we have everyone's payments by Monday, December 5th AT THE LATEST as we have to pay for the bus in full on Tuesday.
We will have room for a few coolers which we will provide. We will also be providing a boxed lunch from Jason’s Deli, please refer to the attached “Lunch” file (this will be included in final email that we send later this week). Please be sure to bring any snacks or beverages you would like since we won't be stopping too much. We will only be making 2 or 3 stops to fill up on gas and use restrooms and grab snacks. The bus DOES allow alcohol but DOES NOT allow glass containers of any kind on board and Scott with Freetail Brewing Company has graciously donated beer to our bus.
We are hoping to be able to park in one of the UTSA parking lots but we will for sure let everyone know when we confirm this. Please arrive at 7:30AM Friday so we can load your stuff and get everyone situated in a timely manner and leave by 8AM.
For our departure on Sunday, December 18th we will be leaving the hotel at 7AM to be back in San Antonio hopefully by 6PM. Again, please be downstairs and ready to go at 6:30AM so we can get loaded and situated in a timely manner.
We've done a group block of rooms at the Courtyard by Marriott Albuquerque Airport located at 1920 Yale Blvd. SE. You can call 1(800) 321-2211 and reference "Bird Gang Room Block" or you may use this link ---> HERE to reserve your room online.
OUR ROOM BLOCK IS OFFICIALLY FULL
You must reserve on or by Friday, December 9th, afterwards they will release any remaining rooms and they will be priced at normal rates.
The game is scheduled for a 12PM kick off time at University Stadium located at 1414 University Blvd SE. Everyone will be responsible for obtaining their own tickets, but we strongly suggest purchasing them through UTSA so the school retains that revenue.
If you are staying at the Courtyard hotel with us, we will have the bus take us to the stadium. Please be ready to leave the hotel at 7:30AM. If you do not want to leave that early in the morning the stadium is conveniently located within walking distance.
Again, thanks for joining us and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask either Matthew or myself. #BirdsUp

Reminder that we need payment for all riders to be paid as soon as the bowl is announced to be in New Mexico. We will have 3 days from when I confirm the booking to pay the balance in full.
Paypal or payment in person are the two options. I will be at the coaches show on Sunday evening, and we should know the destination prior to that. So if you want to bring the cash with you to the show that is perfect.
