Free shuttle Friday for fans, concert-goers

December  02, 2010

Augustana College has arranged for an off-site shuttle service on Friday, Dec. 3, to accommodate fans of the 7:30 p.m. Rock Island Alleman-Moline high school boys basketball game at the Carver Center, and those attending the 8 p.m. Christmas at Augustana concert at Centennial Hall.

The free shuttle service will run from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Basketball fans and concert-goers are encouraged to park in the lots adjacent to Reynolds Manufacturing, located between 5th and 6th avenues and 39th and 41st streets east of Augustana's Ericson Field. The shuttle will transport fans and concert-goers from the parking lots to Centennial Hall.

The Christmas concert is a near sellout, and Alleman's contest with Moline is the Western Big Six opener for both teams. Campus parking lots close to the Carver Center and Centennial Hall will fill quickly. Everyone is encouraged to arrive early to allow time to ride the shuttle.

A limited number of tickets for Christmas at Augustana for Friday night are available: call (309) 794-7306. The concert will be repeated at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4.
