I know the schedule for the GP Final in Quebec City hasn't been announced yet; but I'm wondering if anyone who has attended a GPF in the past, can tell me whether there is usually actual competition on the Thursday or whether it is like the other Grand Prix events - with Thurs. being a practise day and the competition happening Fri-Sun, incl.
The reason I'm asking is because Porter Airlines is have a 50%-off sale on right now (have to book by Sept. 7th and fly by Dec. 15th). At the moment, I can't even access the Porter site. It seems to have crashed ... probably due to so many people trying to book flights. However, when I DO manage to get on the Porter site, I don't know whether to book for a flight on Wed. or Thurs. I don't usually attend the practices, so I would just like to arrive the night before the actual competition starts and save the cost of one night at a hotel.
I know this event encompasses both the Jr. and Sr. GPF, so I don't know if they can still get that all in by starting actual competition on Friday.
Can anyone give me their "best guess?" Thanks so much.
