    Sad to say but contrary to what it says below Norwich will travel to Colby on Wednesday not the other way around.

      Plus, there's the hassle factor which can make busing easier.

      Hamilton would have to bus to either Syracuse or Rochester. I don't know which airport in Michigan they would fly into, and then of course bus from there to Adrian. Add in all the time at the airports...
      Syracuse has direct flights to Detroit and then it's 49 miles to Adrian.

          So flying isn't too bad in this situation.

              When we went to Adrian in 2017, we flew from Burlington to Dayton, Ohio on a charter with Plattsburgh.

                  You are welcome! I found it last week when I had Googled "NCAA mileage calculator." to check Adrian's "sphere of influence." Tonight, based on the earlier posts, I thought it might have gone away, but it is still there!

                      • I know we have games to be played, but what do we know about Orr Rink of Amherst? Does it hit all the hosting capabilities should the Mammoths advance? Obviously Plattsburgh would be a great host if Amherst loses. Likewise, if both Amherst and Plattsburgh lose, GAC is more than capable and would do a fantastic job if they can win against River Falls.

                          The women's requirements are more lenient than the men's side. Adrian hosted the Women's final 4 but I do not believe would qualify for the men's. Not a definitive answer, but hope it helps.

                            Sources inside Plattsburgh are under the impression that Orr qualifies to host the women's championship weekend if they advance. Though if it's the same as it was when I was there in 2012, I would recommend rooting for Colby or Norwich in the QF if you value a good rink experience.

                            That said, Amherst and nearby Springfield probably offer the best off-day options of things for spectators to fill their Saturday compared to Plattsburgh or St. Peter, unless one were to try and make it to a men's tourney QF on the off day Saturday.

                              Hmmmm... interesting insight. Is Orr not very big? Or is the atmosphere a little tamer than say a Middlebury or Plattsburgh? Great point about the Saturday activity options though.

                                Not sure Plattsburgh area doesn't offer a lot. It is about a 50 minute trip to Lake Placid and an hour to Montreal with plenty to see and do in between. Probably to travel around the Cambridge/Boston area would take longer to see and do as much.
