Important Bus Trip and Basketball Updates!

The Penn vs. Princeton Football Bus Trip is THIS SATURDAY, November 3rd. This is a crucial Ivy game between two teams currently tied for first place after Penn's exciting Homecoming victory over Brown on Saturday.

If you already have your tickets, or have basketball season tickets, we are meeting at Weightman Hall (33rd Street outside Franklin Field) to board the buses.  Be there by 10:45 AM SHARP!  If you got basketball season tickets but don't want to go on this trip, either find a friend to take your place or fill out
this form so that we can give your spot to someone else. 

If you don't have tickets on the trip but still want to go, hold tight.  A limited number of seats may be released later in the week, so keep your eyes open for an update email.

The Line was a huge sucess for us, as we more than doubled season ticket sales this year!  Missed out on The Line? You can still buy basketball season tickets!  Just visit the Franklin Field Ticket Office starting tomorrow during normal business hours and you can get your tickets.
