White House is considering a domestic travel ban to Florida. Article
Why specifically Florida?
Ugh, I read the article after I asked why.
It sucks so much. We're close enough to drive. But not everyone is so lucky. And also I've bought flights because we wanted to maximize our time down there. If this goes through it would make logical sense for Varsity to make all end of season events virtual to maximize participating gyms/teams. I have no words for how I'm feeling.
I really, really, really do not see it actually happening.
I know there are other sites that have said it, but the site linked above is not very reputable.
So because of this pandemic obviously people are staying home a lot more. Does anyone else have a pet that now doesn't like to be alone?
I have a doggo who used to be fine with us being at school for 9 hrs, then heading out to after school activities. Now when we all leave the house to go to church, she tries to follow us out the door and will sit and whine anytime we leave her alone. I just was wondering if this has happened to anyone else that has pets! Someone is home with her basically all the time, so I think shes a little spolied now!
I think it's a great opportunity for early season, but also for mid season too--it gives you a chance to see how you fair against teams not from your region without having to travel to NCA/Cheersport, and gives you a more realistic feel for how you're ranking in the season so far. In the past, most of the teams you see at Summit, is your first and only interaction with them of the season, so you don't really have a gauge of how you stack up next to them until it's too late.
I may be in the minority too, but I got a TON of feedback from our Varsity virtual comp. About 2.5 times what we get from a standard competition. Not all of it made sense/I agreed with, but I'd say that's also fairly standard. lol

Rubio.senate.gov also reported it.
Yeah our team got a bid back in December. And our gym has required us to book flights and I have already paid a 700 deposit- for just my daughter. So paid 1200 already.
And we are supposed to book our family hotel this week- just waiting on the link to charge another 3k.
It is going to be so annoying if this cancels.
As Cheersport goes on this weekend....
That doesn't change my thoughts. There are more reliable sources now saying that the current administration never had any plans for this. I will gladly eat my words if I'm wrong, but this is not something to worry about. The wording of the article is enough for me to not believe one ounce of it.
We sometime leave the TV running, but I will try the podcast idea!
Yes! I would be so in to this! It would be really fun for our kids in the UK to compete against teams from America and other countries without the pressure of expensive trips. Can definitely picture it in my head as more of a "fun" style virtual competition - less pressure than summit/worlds but still getting the opportunity to see where you stack up against teams from other countries.
Cheersport will apparently make deductions today for a team whose spectators don’t wear masks correctly.
Apart from the giant holding hall (which I avoided) I think the comp has felt pretty safe.
Is this legit? I haven't seen anything official from Varsity about it? Just things that look like FB posts.

That, and if you enforce, it most likely becomes targeting "higher profile" teams. Or targeting your opponents.
Ex: No one will notice D2 Small Town All Stars doing hair but they will notice say, TGLC. See also: if you're behind XYZ all stars by .10, you are more likely to be looking for your opponent to be violating rules.
