Meeting Up for Pre-Travel Orientation!
Hello Global LABers-
We look forward to meeting all of you on September 14th to start your pre-travel orientation, which will take place at a beautiful retreat center called the Lifebridge Sanctuary, just outside of Rosendale, NY. There are two options for connecting with your Global LAB group on Sept. 14th:
1) You can meet us in NYC and catch the bus to our retreat site. If you would like to do this we ask that you arrive at the Port Authority Bus Terminal (PABT) at the Adirondack Trailways ticket counter no later than 2pm. The PABT (located one block west of Times Square, occupying the blocks between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, from 40th to 42nd Streets) is the largest and busiest in the United States, so we recommend that you study the terminal's layout ahead of time to avoid confusion. Note: there are two Adirondack Trailways ticket counters within the PABT. We will be meeting at the one located in the North Terminal on the Subway Level. Brad Choyt, a founding director of Global LAB, will be there to meet you (with tickets to Rosendale). If you get to the bus station late (our group will be on a bus departing at 2:40pm) there are later buses which go the same route, but then you will need to get your own ticket and give us a call to let us know when to expect you. (The Rosendale bus station is about 3 miles from the retreat center and we can pick you up if you end up running late).
2) The other option is that you can be dropped off directly at Lifebridge. Directions to the retreat center are available here. Please plan to arrive between 3-4:30pm.
Whichever option you choose, you must let us know ahead of time. Thanks.
