unannounced government rules changes, unreliable freight shipping and
airline schedule changes, or other forces beyond our control, any planned
schedule or activity may have to change or be cancelled without notice.
Airline tickets are purchased in your individual names and are your property
once paid for. Subsequent schedule changes, route cancellations, or other
complications are beyond our control. Hence it is the named individual’s
responsibility to handle such matters directly with the airline.
