Yes, you are permitted to fly to the event early, or leave late, as long as you acknowledge and understand the following rules and regulations regarding this request: 


If the cost of your flight is more expensive on the dates you are requesting than it would have been on the day we would have flown you out, you will be responsible for the difference in price. For example, if you are wanting to fly in a day early and the cost to do so is $100 more than on the travel date we would have flown you in, you will be responsible for that $100, and it will be taken out of your winnings.


Another rule regarding travel times is in regards to your transportation and housing accommodations on the extended days you are requesting. Please note that if you choose to fly in earlier than the date we would have flown you in, you will be responsible for getting yourself from the airport to wherever you are staying. We will not provide hotel lodging or transportation until the date we would have offered those accommodations to begin. You will also be responsible for getting yourself to the hotel we are providing on the day we do begin your hotel reservation. 


If you choose to leave later than when we would have flown you out, you will be responsible for your own hotel and lodging accommodations beginning on the day we would have flown you out. You will be required to check out of the hotel we have provided on the originally specified date by noon, and will be responsible for securing your own lodging for the extra days, as well as your transportation to that location. You will also be responsible for your own transportation to the airport on the day that you choose to leave.
