Student trip to GSC Tournament in Memphis area

Posted: February 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

Due to the generous support of Student Affairs and your SGA we will be taking a bus of current UAH students to the Gulf South Conference Basketball Tournament March 4th-6th in the Memphis Area!!!!

This weekend long trip will allow 56 UAH students to ride a charter bus, enjoy two nights in a hotel near Beale Street in Memphis, TN, and gain admittance to all of the tournament games at NO COST TO THEM! We do ask that students put down a $25.00 deposit to reserve their spot, which will be reimbursed to them upon bus departure. Bus sign ups will begin on February 5th at 4:30pm at Spragins Hall in advance of the basketball games! If the bus does not fill that evening we will also have a sign up table at February 7th’s game beginning at 5:00pm in advance of the Valdosta games. YOU MUST HAVE YOUR $25.00 DEPOSIT TO RESERVE YOUR SEAT!!!

The bus will be departing from Spragins Hall on Friday, March 4th, at 1:00pm. We do request that students check in between 12:00pm and 1:00pm so that we can depart promptly at 1:00 for the 4 hour ride to Southaven, MS (where the tournament takes place).

Friday (4th) evening, barring any complications with game scheduling, we will attend our first game, or games if the Lady Chargers are playing  (HOPE SO!!) when we can arrive. After the games that evening we will check into our hotel in the Downtown Memphis Medical District approximately 2 miles from Beale Street. Students can hop a downtown bus near the hotel to take you them to the Downtown/Beale Street areas that evening should they wish.

Assuming UAH wins our games on Friday, Students will  have the day to spend enjoying the Memphis area. They can get to most anywhere inexpensively by city buses.  They will then head back to watch the second basketball game at either 5:30pm or 7:30pm as rankings decide and return to the hotel where you are free to spend the evening however you please.

The CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, which we hope we will be at 2:45pm. We will return on Sunday, March 6th, hopefully around 9:00pm assuming we make it to the championship game.

You will be required to sigh a trip-specific liability waiver (standard procedure) before being returned your $25.00 deposit on the day of departure.
