Who is eligible to participate in this weekend? Active duty, reserve, guard, or veterans of any branch of the U.S. military are eligible to register for this weekend. If you are not or were not a servicemember at any time, please do not fill out a form. Please do not falsify any information on the registration form.
Do I have to hold a PayPal account to make donations to Husker Fans Salute to the Troops or pay the $35 registration fee? No.
How does registration work? The registrant will click on the yellow DONATE button and he will be taken to PayPal. He does not have to hold an account with PayPal to pay the $35 donation fee. He then will go through the prompts to pay the $35 registration fee and then will be directed to download the registration form. He will fill out the registration form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How many guest can I bring? Due to limited space we have to limit your guest to four. This would be a total of five which includes yourself.
I haven't heard from huskersalute.org yet. Why haven't I heard from them? Please contact us! If you paid your donation fee, you will receive a receipt, and you will receive information as time draws nearer to the event. Also, your email address may not be working. We may have tried to contact you and your address may have bounced back to us. Another reason may be that we have tried to contact you and our emails are going to your junk email or spam box. Please make sure our correspondence is going to your inbox. Also, you may have forgotten to pay the $35 registration fee. Please click here to do so. You may email email@example.com at any time with any inquiries.
What is the $35 registration fee for? This covers operating costs not covered by the main sponsors for the event. It also secures each family's slot for the event.
Why do repeat attendees have to pay $60 for registration instead of $35? The event cost has gone up each year and we are trying to encourage more first time attendees.
What does my registration fee include? Your registration fee basically holds your slot for the weekend. Should you choose not to attend, your fee will be considered a donation to the event. It includes your stay at the hotel, welcome packet with gift, bus ride and tour to the UNL Athletics Facility, the watch party on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday.
I am unable to pay using the secure online donation form with my VISA, Mastercard, or online check. Is there another way I can send payment? Yes. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and explain your situation. You will be directed to mail in a check payment.
May I donate more than just the $35 registration fee? Yes! Please visit our Donation page.
When should I expect the schedule for Saturday game day? We will put out a schedule when the game time is published.
Can I have more than one room? No. Not as part of your registration for Husker Salute. The sponsors provide one room per military guest. However, you can go to the hotels web site at http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/lnkfs-the-lincoln-marriott-cornhusker-hotel/?scid=bb1a189a-fec3-4d19-a255-54ba596febe2 and reserve another room under a military rate.
Can I arrive on Friday night? No. Not as part of your registration for Husker Salute. The sponsors provide one room per military guest for Saturday night. However, once you receive your confirmation number via email from huskersalute.org, you may contact the Cornhusker Hotel to reserve a room for Friday night. Be sure to mention you are part of the Husker Salute weekend event to ensure you receive the special room rate. Your Friday night room will not be included as part of your Husker Salute package.
Will someone pick me up at the airport if I fly in? Each trooper is responsible for his own transportation to and from the hotel and the weekend events. The hotel does have an airport shuttle.
Can I bring friends and other guests to the brunch? Soldiers and their immediate family (spouses and children) will have tickets to the brunch. Please contact Mr. Gary McGirr if you would like to purchase additional tickets.
Do I need to contact the Cornhusker Hotel to confirm my registration? No, you will be contacted by huskersalute.org before the event by email with an itinerary.
Will I be required to place a deposit or credit card for my room? Yes. All guests will be required at hotel check-in to place a credit card or cash security deposit for their hotel room. Husker Salute Weekend is not responsible for any damages to guest rooms, stolen hotel property, or charges made directly to rooms by guests.
Will you be providing tickets to the game? No, but we will have a watch party in the main ball room at the hotel.
My plans have changed and I will not be able to attend the Husker Fans Salute to the Troops Weekend. What do I do next? Please contact email@example.com as soon as possible to cancel your registration. Your registration fee will go towards another trooper's weekend and we will list you as a donor.
Go Big Red!
