Fan Alert – Join the NU rooter bus run to Merced

The Nevada Union boosters club is accepting reservations for two rooters buses that will be traveling to Merced Sept. 13 for the Miners’ first football game of the year.

The cost for the four hour round-trip bus ride to Merced High School is $26. Reservations are being accepted through KNCO at 272-3424. Each bus carries a maximum of 46 people, so reservations will be made first come, first serve.

The buses will leave Nevada Union High School at 1:30 p.m., Friday afternoon, so that the caravan can arrive before the start of the junior varsity game. Payment for the reservations will be accepted at the time of departure.

“We did it three years ago for some of the playoff games, but we haven’t done is since because we haven’t had to go this kind of distance,” booster president Mike Bratton said. “If you reserve the bus trip, we just want to make sure you are on, because we don’t want to get stuck. But this first game should be a good one; Merced is a powerhouse program.”

For further information or questions, one can call Bratton during the day at 273-4559.
