    Is it ok to have a semi with 15 couples? Is that right, in champ?

    It's a little unusual, but fortunately for you, you don't have to worry about it!

    Sunday 9:31 PM S2 Standard Champ 1/4 final, following by semi at 10:15PM, no heats between (9:31 is kind of funny, could it be 9:30:))

    Assuming that quarter final will be broken up into two groups, 44 minutes still seems like a long gap between the two heats. I would assume there's a break for awards and/or general dancing built in there, which would make the lack of intervening heats seem a bit less odd.

    So what kind of street clothes should I pack for national? It seems that it will be around 70 and cloudy in LA next weekend. I forgot what it feels like in 70 because the area I live is still very cold.

    Normally a 1/4 will take 20 minutes to run. Then you gotta have 20 minutes between the end of the 1/4 and the beginning of the semi. So 9:31 + 20 min takes you to 9:51. 9:51 + 20 min takes you to 10:11. So 10:15 is not an unreasonable time to expect the 1/2.

    I am slightly concerned when I do not see any heats, or just one heat between the events, so far our experience at some NQE was not so good. Our heats ended up back to back, hopefully, because these ones are the heats from the same event it should not happen, so it will be the violation to have less than 20 min between, right?

    FYI, even with the marine layer weather burning off by 10a.m., the weather has been FABULOUS! Hope it holds out for all of you out-of-towners.:)
