Well, one idea is to make gold and novice what they are, which is they are not prechamp and champ.
Make the champ events biddable and you will see many of the Champ dancers especially seniors willing to support other comps. And, the bidding $$$$ will flow back to USA dance and the money can go to scholarships for the events (not siphoned off for specialty situations like sending youth to lake placid) or for sending more USA dance couples to world events.
i think USA dance should help send couples to world events . personally if we ever are selected i wouldnt need their support but not everyone is in that situation
