Maybe the organisers could get some sponsorship deal going with their local airlines, no harm in trying?
I can find a £750 one way flight, but it wants another £625 to fetch me back
Yes I know some on here would say just go one way!
I will predict they want extra dosh for gun carrying as well??
Was your £750 return because that does make it look a better price, until you ook at travel time of 33 hours!
