Travel with the Saints to Georgia

Ever want to hit the road with your favorite team? Siena is offering fans the chance to travel with the Saints to Atlanta, Georgia to watch the Saints take on Georgia Tech on November 23rd. This trip ranks up their with fantasy camps that baseball teams offer at their Spring Training facilities, aka an ultimate fan experience. The difference here is you get to travel with the current team. Unfortunately I am not in a position to make this trip, but its something I would definitely jump on if I could. Bring a friend, a few days on the road, and best of all you can travel with and root on your favorite team, now that’s winning! Here’s the official release from the school:

The Siena athletic department is offering a limited number of travel packages for the Saints’ men’s basketball team’s upcoming trip to ACC member Georgia Tech November 22-23. The package includes: round trip air transportation on a private charter with the team, a room in the team hotel, ticket to the game, gameday reception, scouting chalk talk with the coaches, Siena travel gear and a Thanksgiving treat upon return to Albany.

The package is priced at $980 per person, and can be reserved by contacting Siena assistant athletic director Lori Perillo at 518-783-2530 or e-mailing her at lperillo@siena.edu.

The charter departs Albany International Airport on Tuesday, November 22 and returns from Atlanta immediately following the game on the evening of November 23, meaning all travelers will be home for Thanksgiving.

Siena defeated Georgia Tech and former head coach Paul Hewitt 62-57 at home last season, and 76-68 in the First Round of the 1994 NIT in one of its most memorable games in program history. This is the final game of a three-year series between the two schools.
