PFFC Road Trip Schedule (2014-2015 Season)

 For more info: Lou Milano, 1608 Lucas Lane, Britton Place, Voorhees, NJ  08043-2563;
                                           phone/text 1-609.922.2234;
Please call or email before sending a deposit.   **

Montreal - 11/15/14 (Provide your Own Transportation):  Provide your own transportation for one, two or three nights. 
                    Or if we have enough people going and this becomes a bus trip, it will be for two nights.

NY Rangers - 11/29/14 (Bus Trip):  A Saturday afternoon game at 1PM.

NY Islanders - 1/19/15 (Bus Trip):  This is the last scheduled game for the Flyers at Nassau Coliseum.  This game is a Monday at 1PM.

Columbus/Buffalo - 2/13 to 2/16/15 (Bus or Provide your Own Transportation):  This is something different - two arenas
you’d never think of going to… The game in Columbus is on Friday 2/13/15 and in Buffalo 2/15/15.
This is President’s Day Weekend.

Boston/New Jersey - 3/7 and 3/8/15 (Bus Trip): This is a two game bus trip, leaving on 3/6 and returning home on 3/8/15.

Vancouver (with an option for Calgary and Edmonton) - 3/17/15 (Air Trip):  It will be less money to do Vancouver only for a
few days.  FYI, the Canucks are home 3/14 vs. Toronto and 3/19 vs. Columbus.  We’ll probably offer a five night trip to
Vancouver.  This will be a Provide Your own Transportation Trip (but we can assist if needed).  However, this trip will not be
cheap.  If you’re interested, start saving your money and if you have frequent flier miles THIS WOULD BE THE TRIP TO USE
THEM!!  If you’re thinking of this trip, as of 7/1/14 we see airfares between $500.00 and $600.00.  This is a GREAT fare and
should be booked ASAP.   FYI, I priced all three cities and the fare (including train from Calgary/Edmonton) is about $800.00
at this time (not bad…)

Carolina - 4/4/15:  This trip is based on interest.

We can also do trips to other places that aren’t included on our trip schedule
                        (e.g.  Nashville on 12/27/14 or Arizona/Colorado on 12/29/14 and 12/31/14. 
                                                 Or maybe Washington on 2/8/15 if you wish).

Prices and more information will be available by September, but it’s never too early to inquire. 
If you have any questions, contact Lou Milano at 1-609.922.2234 (phone/text) or email:

10) Keep up with the latest information on the PFFC by accessing our web site:

11) FYI, a passport IS NOW REQUIRED to enter Canada.

12) I’m often asked where the seats are located. We try to please, but realize not everyone can be.
     Therefore the seats we attempt to purchase (and usually wind up getting) are lower second level/upper first
     level in the corner to blue lines. In cities like Toronto, Detroit, NY Rangers, we “take what we can get”!!

13) Also, please remember we’re not ticket agents. The trips we sponsor are part of a package deal which includes
      the game tickets. If you have a request for game tickets only, we’ll try to accommodate if only a few are needed.
      However, there may be a small service charge. When tickets are purchased for our trips, our allotment is usually
      only for people “traveling” with the PFFC!!

14) The PFFC cannot be held responsible if the time or day of the game changes and alternate travel plans need
      to be made.

Here are two articles from  Alan Ellis  about the NY Islanders trip
                               and from Maureen Fisher about the Nashville trip for you to enjoy.

 Last Call for Road Trip by Alan Ellis

It was the last weekend in March, a GORGEOUS Saturday.  What could be better? 
OH YEAH!!!  Jump on a bus & go to a hockey game!!!
Yes, as the first week of spring was coming to an end, the final Fan Club road trip of the (regular) season wound its way up the
New Jersey turnpike, across the Verrazano Bridge, along the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, to the Long Island Expressway, to
exit 39 and down three roads (Glen Cove, Old Country & Merrick Ave.) to Nassau Coliseum, to see the Flyers take on the feisty
NY Islanders (they've been pretty tough & playing well of late). 

Settling into our seats after the National Anthem, it took all of 2 seconds for the fireworks to start, as Dan Carcillo went at it with Michael
Haley.  20 seconds later, it was Sean O'Donnell going at it with (NHL penalty minute leader) Zenon Konopka.  Once both teams got the
fights out of the way, the Flyers struck first.  A faceoff win to Jeff Carter and he quickly wristed the puck in the far corner past Rick DiPietro.

Just 22 seconds later, James Van Riemsdyk scored goal #1 of his 1st career hat trick.  Blake Comeau cut the lead to 2-1, but JVR scored
a power play goal later in the 1st.  Meanwhile Sergei BOB-rovsky was OUTSTANDING the entire game, making at least two notable saves,
one on Kyle Okposo in the 2nd and another on P.A. Parenteau in the 3rd.  JVR completed his hat trick with a one-timer from between the
circles.  Hats were thrown by Flyers fans seated near the ice and a shoe was also in the mix (Coatesy pointed this out).  The game clock
wound down & we celebrated the win, which gave the Flyers 100 pts.  After the game, we picked up pizza and ate it on the bus. 
At 1:00AM on Sunday 3/27, we arrived back at Voorhees, tired but happy to see the “W”.  The last (regular season) road trip was over…

Great Job AGAIN, LOU! 
We couldn't do it without you.

 Thanksgiving in Nashville… by Maureen Fisher

On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Joe and I along with Pam Miller and Stacey Squilla headed down I-95 in our packed car towards Nashville.  The weather was raining and eventually turned to snow as we got closer to Washington.  We arrived in Nashville to beautiful weather on Thanksgiving day and checked into our hotel in the center of Nashville.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner buffet at Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant.  The food was really good, the staff was friendly and it was a nice casual place that I highly recommend.  After dinner we drove to Opryland to look at the outdoor Christmas lights.

On Friday, Joe, Stacey and I took a City tour of Nashville.  Our first stop was the Ryman Auditorium known as the “Mother Church of Country Music”.  We all got our picture on the stage of the famous original home of the “Grand Ole Opry Show”.  Our tour ended at the Country Music Hall of Fame.  We had lunch at Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, a Nashville landmark.  After lunch we went back to the Country Music Hall of Fame for a tree lighting concert featuring Richie McDonald from Lone Star.  On Friday night Jen Ebling and Theresa & Hal Kestenholz arrived to join us.

On Saturday morning we toured the Jack Daniel’s Distillery, which happens to be in a dry county.  Finally the reason for our trip was the Flyers vs Predators game.  Nashville puts on a great party outside the arena.  The fans really get into the game.  They have a live band that plays during the time outs.  The Flyers won 3-2 in a shoot-out.  The arena is located right in the middle of all the restaurants and bars known as “The District”.  After the game we went to a bar called the Honkey Tonk Central where we got a table right inside the door.  Dressed in our Flyers gear, we encountered a lot of Flyer fans, high-fiving us as they passed through the door.  Nashville is a great place, with friendly people.  I highly recommend a visit there the next time the Flyers are in town.
