The Travel Day: Wednesday March 9




Arriving at the Roanoke Airport early Wednesday morning, we are greeted by some bad news. Our flight to Chicago-O’Hare had been cancelled by United. Instead of getting into Cedar Rapids by 12:30 pm, we are rerouted via Atlanta to Minneapolis-St. Paul, before finally arriving in Cedar Rapids at 4:35 PM.

    Thanks for sharing the journey so far. I am getting excited just seeing the arena and all the shining mats. Good luck to Ron in his quest for All-American. It would be the ultimate icing on an already wonderful career and a great accomplishment for the program as well. Go Blue!
