FRYS.COM OPEN PARTNERS WITH SPORTS FAN EXPRESS

FOR MOTORCOACH TRANSPORTATION TO EVENT

SAN MARTIN, Calif. – Frys.com Open Tournament Director Ian Knight announced today that Sports Fan Express will provide roundtrip motorcoach transportation and ticket packages from Fry’s Electronics store locations to the 2010 Frys.com Open. The first-ever PGA TOUR event to be held in Silicon Valley is scheduled to be played at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, October 13-17.

Sports Fan Express will sell ticket packages starting at $59 that include a tournament daily ticket, transportation, a $10 cash card from Golfsmith as well as a complimentary beverage at the Michelob Ultra Tailgate Party. The tailgate party will be open to the general public Thursday to Sunday, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. On Sunday, October 17, the tailgate party will be hosted by San Francisco 49er standout Ronnie Lott and other sports celebrities.

“We are pleased to offer fans the ease of traveling by a luxury motorcoach to our tournament,” said Knight. “Thanks to a ride home, fans can now stay after the golf tournament and enjoy music and what we hope to be the largest tailgate party in Northern California.”

The motorcoaches will line up at seven Fry’s Electronics store locations including Sacramento, Concord, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, Campbell, Fremont and San Jose. The coaches are scheduled to arrive at the course by 9 a.m. The Express Package allows the fans to return home after golf.
