“Away” Trip at Home Against New England in the Works

For the first time since its inception, the annual Steering Committee Away has been cancelled.  Each year the Steering Committee clubs pick a Raiders away trip to travel to.  The Sactown Original Raider Booster Club has always had a strong representation for each and every away trip.

In the last few years, tickets have been increasingly hard to come by.  It’s difficult to find an opposing team that 1) Has an available  block of 300 or so tickets together, and 2) is willing to sell that block of tickets to their opponents – especially when the opponent is a group of loyal Raiders fans.

After voting on their top choices, Tampa Bay  (3rd choice) was the first team to have tickets available.  Unfortunately, there were not enough Raider Boosters willing to attend that game to make an way trip to Tampa Bay viable.  After another round of voting to see if their was enough interest in traveling to Miami (4th choice) or Kansas City (5th choice), the 2008 Away Trip was cancelled.

A consolation prize of sorts is in the works.  The Steering Committee is working on an “Away Trip to a Home Game” and pursuing the December 14th game against New England.   Some  Booster clubs are also looking at planning their own individual club trips to a Raiders away game.
