    chance of vs chance that

    Hi,

    Question:
    Do my sentences have the same meaning?

    Sentence1:
    I asked my girlfriend to read the schedule to minimize the chance that our time would be stretched.
    Sentence2:
    I asked my girlfriend to read the schedule to minimize the chance of our time being stretched.

    Thanks

    I asked my girlfriend to read the schedule to minimize wasted time.

    This might be better.
