St. Thomas has filled its plane for Thursday’s charter flight to Virginia for the NCAA Division III football championship game between the Tommies and Mount Union.
A Sun Country flight will depart the Humphrey Terminal (No. 2), Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, at 10:30 a.m. CST Thursday and arrive in Roanoke, Va., at 1:45 p.m. EST. The flight will return to the Twin Cities after the game Friday night.
Parents of players, university staff members and the media filled the 162-person flight; unfortunately, there was not room for alumni and other fans. While the demand for two planes was strong, a maintenance issue denied the availibility of a second plane.
If you plan to go to the game but won’t be on the charter flight, you can participate in a number of activities:
If you are not traveling to Salem, you can watch the game on ESPN U or listen to the WCCO Radio broadcast over JACK 104.1 FM. (The game will not be broadcast on WCCO’s 830 AM channel because of a Timberwolves game.) There will also be a viewing party on campus in the Woulfe Alumni Hall on the third floor of the Anderson Student Center.
