I have been researching the costs of renting a bus for next years Chickamauga event to shuttle folks down from the MD, PA, VA, WV 4 state area. The average cost for a charter leaving on the Thursday before the event and returning the Monday after the event will be $7,600 with lodging, gas, and gratuity for the driver. Divided by 50 riders, that comes out to roughly $150 per person.
I am trying to get an indication of interest from the reenactment community to see if it is worth it to persue this project. I am not interested in having a discussion of this. If you are interested in hopping on the bus, please reply with only a "yes". If you are not interested, please do not reply to this thread.
