I edited your questions to be a little more coherent. I also added a few options.

Liked location, not the date. I may still be hung over.

I dont like how its so early...Expensive Plane tickets. (about 300 dollars more)
I prefer everything in the same location also, but who knows, it might work out better this way.
but, i've gotten to OK to go. [/code]

Too expensive, too far to drive and inconvenient, and from the looks of it, a lot less kids will be there from those factors. Im not gonna say i won't go, but its definitely a lot less chance from these changes. Dang Grand Sierra had to jack the prices just cuz they could huh?

I spoke with Steve from UCS on Thursday. They will have about 6 buses that seat about 50 shuttling everyone back and forth between the hotel and the arena. The seating for all the competitions will be much better, nobody gets closed out of the Elite competition, in fact, they will try to invite locals to try to attract a wider fan base for the sport. Putting the Masters back on Friday night frees up some time for them on Saturday to officiate and coach. While you won't have that "all-in-one-place" convenience, it won't be that bad. Having it earlier too is better for the college community, and may possibly be better for high schoolers still on Christmas break so they don't have to miss school.
