today will have the opening ceremony so the actual competition will start at 730pm or so. subsequent days will start at 7pm.

The freestyle event will have the lions up on the poles most of the time. So it doesn't means the front row seats will be the best. Also need a long and fast lens coupled with high ISO.

The flood lights there can either kill you or help you, be there at around 6pm and choose your seats wisely..
