On Thursday the field trip bus will return to the Radisson by 2:30 p.m. sharp. For those flying out that day, the Radisson airport shuttle will be waiting when our bus returns. Travel to the airport, plus check-in and security, will take a maximum of one hour, so field trip participants will have plenty of time to catch flights departing at 4:30 p.m. or later.

For those checking out Thursday morning but going on the field trip, the Radisson will hold luggage in a secure place until the field trip bus returns.
