• Parents/Siblings Riding the Bus
     - Bus space is primarily for players and coaches, but a handful of players have already notified us they are unable to make the trip
     - After we get a final count, there will likely be space, and parents and siblings that are interested are welcome to available seats on the bus (first-come-first-served)
     - Siblings will not be allowed to ride the bus without a parent
     - All non-players that ride the bus are encouraged to help offset the cost (see below), and will be included in the count for our dinner box order
• Costs & Donations
     - We did budget for all this, but the reason we were looking into cancelling the bus recently was to offset our projected revenue shortfall
     - Anyone that wants us to help make up that shortfall by “donating” your player’s portion of the trip cost, it comes out to about $33 ($27/person for the bus + $6 for dinner)
     - See our Fundraising page for online donations; or write a check to Hoover Lacrosse and get it to Coach Wittig 
     - Of course, if you want to donate more than the $33/person, you’re welcome to
