Join the 2nd Annual Bowl Trip! is proud to announce the <b>2nd Annual Hawkeye Football Bowl Package</b>! Our chartered flight originating from Des Moines SOLD OUT as of Monday afternoon, but we have game tickets and hotel rooms available through our LAND ONLY package. Many of you do not live in Iowa and will be making your own travel arrangements. If you want to be a part of the group, you can still do that with this package, plus you will have a ticket to the game.

Iowa fans have once again shown their amazing passion for the Iowa Hawkeyes, as the charter flight SOLD OUT Monday (12/08) afternoon.

But we still have game tickets and rooms available at the hotel we will be staying at for those of you who were not able to book a seat on our plane or for those of you around the nation that will not be able to fly out of Des Moines with our Land Only package.

The Land Only package includes EVERYTHING that our charter flight customers will receive, except you have to make your own travel plans. That is the only difference, plus the difference in price.

This year, we are teaming up with one of the best travel partners in the sports travel industry, Premiere Sports Travel. They have been sending sports fans to events all across America for the last decade and they are one of the official tour operators for Las Vegas and Lowe's Motor Speedway and are one of the largest tour providers for NASCAR.

They will provide representatives at our hotel that will help facilitate our trip and make the experience a pleasant one from a logistical standpoint, just like the fans enjoyed on last year's tour.

Here are the details:

  • 3 nights at Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Tampa- 5 mi from Raymond James Stadium
  • 300 Level tickets to the Outback Bowl
  • Transportation to and from the Outback Bowl
  • Transportation to and from the airport
  • Transportation to and from the Hawkeye Huddle Pep Rally
  • Official game souvenir
  • Ticket holder and lanyard
  • Premiere Sports Travel luggage tags
  • Premiere Sports Travel staff onsite to assist the tour
  • Jon Miller of will host the tour and there will be at least one ‘get together' event at the hotel exclusive for those of you that book our package.
  • All taxes

The hotel is one mile from the convention center and the restaurants and shopping opportunities of Channelside are within the free hotel shuttle radius as well. The hotel has an on-site restaurant, room service, cocktail lounge, outdoor pool and fitness center. This hotel is also within one mile of the Florida Aquarium, a popular tourist destination.


SINGLE: $735
DOUBLE: $475/person
TRIPLE: $395/person
QUAD: $355/person

As you can see, if you bring three other people along with you on this trip or you are part of a group of four Iowa fans that want to join our trip, your cost is just $355 per person and you get the same service and package that a single trip purchaser would get that would pay $735. Just a reminder, this is a LAND ONLY PACKAGE, as our charter flight has already sold out.

So there you have it. We are looking forward to renewing old acquaintances and to making new friends on this trip. Last year's tour was among the best that was offered and I did not hear one negative comment on the package that we put together. One of the things that made our trip so successful was the personal touch that we added to it, something that we feel is of the utmost importance. We expect nothing different this year and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and talking Hawkeye football with you during our stay in Tampa.
