While this may change due to travel issues, here are the preliminary 2010 numbers and 2009 comparisons: 1. US cheer teams 2009-261 2010-200 That's a drop of 23% and is due to the decrease in the number of at large bids. There has been an outcry for this for a couple of years, so I don't want to hear (or see) one single post about "XYZ team deserved to get a bid! Waaaaaahhh" 2. international cheer teams 2009-56 2010-95 That's almost a 100% increase! I've been told that the all girl team from Japan is worth the price of admission and Bangkok is working hard to improve on last year. 3. dance teams (US & International) 2009-109 2010-159 4. International Cheer Union This event has opening ceremonies on Thursday and the competition is on Friday. This one is one country per division allowed. 2009-40 2010-70 Looks like this year is going to be another incredible event!
