UPDATE – January 17, 2014 1:00pm:
And they’re off! The Thief River Falls group is on their way home, with a quick stop for shopping on the way.
We’re so impressed with how well the Seven Clans Casino has handled the situation , they’ve really gone above and beyond for our group. Not only did they provide everyone with meal vouchers and rooms, they also allowed folks to call home for free. We are so grateful to the management at staff for their excellent treatment of our group!
UPDATE – January 16, 2014 3:00pm:
Due to road conditions the Thief River Falls tour group will NOT be able to return today. The casino has held their hotel rooms over for the night as well as given meal vouchers to the group, and they will be returning tomorrow (Friday). Once we know an estimated return time we will post it.
We’ve had a few calls from people worried about the current Thief River Falls tour.
One of the highways to Thief River is currently closed due to the weather. If the bus is able to get to Thief River to pick up our group it will be quite late, the casino has arranged for the hotel rooms to be held until the bus arrives. If the bus is unable to get through today the casino has reserved the hotel rooms for the night. We will be updating this posting as information comes in.
