Flying Into Spokane? Good Luck

Jason Dixon covers the Storm, and is in Spokane for Arena Bowl XXIII between the Spokane Shock and your Tampa Bay Storm.

But he says it wasn’t easy getting there:

The Storm traveling party was split up onto several flights. Some members of the ownership group headed west on Tuesday. Equipment manager Juan Valdez and a portion of the equipment arrived here Wednesday morning. Myself, along with football operations assistant Monte Bussey and media relations assistant Evan Vladem jumped on a plane in Tampa with hopes of being in Spokane by noon. A mechanical problem delayed the flight and caused us to miss a connection. We were re-routed with an extra stop that saw us go from Tampa to Minneapolis to Portland to Spokane. We arrived at 6:30 PM Spokane Time.

With that kind itinerary, I hope the trip back is a happy one.
