I've been to 4 comps so far, so here's my list Like: when there is a reasonably sized practice room good organization informative website Dislike: The way they schedule things. Now they have American Style on Thursday and Friday, and all of International on Saturday. Which is a PITA for me, because now I have to figure out how to handle this in the middle of school year. I have a son in 5th grade, so this is an issue for me. Besides, with this schedule, American Style competitors have to take 2 days off, instead of 1. I also find it unfair that we also have to pay for entry tickets when we compete. Long waits between events. On my last comp, we were doing bronze, and bronze single events started at 9 and were done by 11, and then the scholarships were at 4:30.
