I guess that would be up to the TD but once you get your discs and the tournament hasn't started I don't see why you couldn't go practice. DD had to cancel their's this saturday so I got to step in and run it the following sunday on the 29th. It'll be flex start and once I give out a player pack I wouldn't have any issues with a person practicing on a basket that isn't being used before they start their round. You should probably ask though I'm not sure of the format for the one you are attending.
The spirit of the event is that people come and use the same discs and compete on an equal playing field. Nothing about preventing a warm up or getting familiar with the flight before you start. I'd say show up a little early, get your discs, then go to an area away from the course a little and throw them until you're comfortable.
