Want to bus to March for Our Lives event in Orlando?
Sat, Mar 10, 2018
Seniors Against Assault Weapon Violence has arranged for bus/coach transportation to the March for Our Lives event in Orlando. The event is Saturday, March 24, at Lake Eola in Orlando. The rally will be from 12 Noon to 3 PM. We will leave at 10 AM from Freedom Park parking lot in Solivita, and people will gather by 9:45 AM to be ready to board at 10. We will leave the rally at 2:45 to be picked up by the bus at 3 PM, which should get us back to Solivita by 4 PM.
The cost of the 54 passenger bus is $375. Until we know how many people are going, we will not know the exact cost. At present we have 15 definite people signed up and at least 10 maybes. We expect to get more people signing up, and optimistically hope for 50. However, due to not knowing if we will get that many we are asking people to give Shelli a $20 check to hold their places on the bus. These checks will not be cashed unless the cost does turn out to be $20. It will likely be less, in which case we will be able to advise people prior to the trip what the exact cost is. The only other cost will be the gratuity for the driver. That is usually done by passing a large envelope, which we will provide, and people can add what they think is appropriate.
The bus is equipped with a bathroom, and wifi. I think it also has electric outlets for charging phones.
We will need the phone numbers of those people who are going, so that when we get ready to depart from Orlando we can call anyone who is not on the bus to make sure no one is left behind. We will also give out our phone numbers so people can reach us in case of any problem that day.
Hope you can join us.
