andTimings and pick-up/drop off:
RV time 11:30hr on the 4th March in Bardufoss airport arrivals hall.
Drop off for travel home 08:00hr on the 10th at BDU airport.
I am guessing the timetables have changed a bit as outward it still looks possible with an overnight in Oslo, the only Norwegian departure I can see from Bardufoss on 10th is at 06:30hr and that gives 4hrs between airports arrival to departure.Group 1: Those flying to Oslo with Ryan on the Saturday, stopping in Oslo overnight and then flying onto Bardufoss on the Sunday (Returning the same route but with no overnight in Oslo) This is the suggested and probably the best travel option.
Group 2: Those doing the above but not stopping in Oslo overnight it might be a good idea if this group organise a charter bus/taxi/minibus to get them from one airport to the other in Oslo as there is only 3 hours between flights and it will give you piece of mind having some one meet/drop you off - this should not be necessary on the return flight as you have 6 hours between flights this is probably the cheapest flight option.
Why has no effort been made to save the course by advertising on climbing or skiing forums? I'm sure the places could be filled if the providers showed a little creativity and gumption.
Personally I have done my best to sell it at every opportunity.Advertising a course then doing nothing to publicise or promote the event hardly demonstates a commitment to the course.

The thing that's annoyed me is that an interested party asked a question on one of the arctic exped posts but didn't get a reply from the organisers. That is really poor form, very 'second eleven'.Personally I have done my best to sell it at every opportunity.
If only the providers had put in as much effort
This is a course run at a special price for us.
We all appreciate that
They run other courses at higher prices but this is a special deal for us.
But if we don't make up the numbers there will be no course
If anyone needs to show commitment, creativity and gumption it is us.
I've done what I can... How about you.
Well I've paid the deposit now!
