Published 9:51am Monday, March 18, 2013

The Austin Packer Fast Break Club is cooperating with Austin Public Schools to provide bus transportation for Packer fans to get the Class ‘AAA’ boys basketball tournament.

The Packers will open state tournament play against The Blake School Wednesday at 2 p.m. in Williams Arena in Minneapolis.

Buses will be available for students and for adults. Students will ride school buses while adults will have a coach bus.

The bus tickets for students are $15 each (including the $9 student admission game ticket), while for adults the cost is $40 (including the $14 game ticket.) Game tickets are non-refundable.

The buses will begin loading at 10:15 a.m. and will depart from Austin High School at 10:45 a.m. for the 2 p.m. game.

To reserve your spot on the bus, get to the Austin High School Activities office by noon on Tuesday with your payment. Students also will need a signed release form. Please pick this up at the cashier’s office at Austin High School, or download below.

If the Packers win Wednesday their semifinal game will be at 2 p.m. on Thursday. Buses also will be available for that game, and those interested in riding will need to pay in advance, also by noon Tuesday, to reserve their spots. If the Packers don’t play Thursday, the cost of the second trip will be refunded.

Contact the Austin High School Activities Office with any questions.
