Crowds spend hours waiting for Wells Fargo Championship shuttle


WILLMINGTON, NC — Weather delayed shuttles to the Wells Fargo Championship Friday morning.

Originally set to depart Downtown Wilmington at 6:00 a.m., buses didn’t start loading until nearly 9:00 a.m..

One volunteer, George Rosica, arrived at 6:30 a.m. only to realize it had been delayed.

“Well, sat in the car for a while. Then we saw there was a one hour delay. Then we saw there was a two hour delay and walked up here from the parking garage. Then we found out there was a three hour delay. So, we’ve just been hanging out here and chit-chatting,” he said.

Even though the crowds had to wait, most people seemed to be in good spirits and ready to watch some golf.
