Is Indy really that far from Canada? I'm thinking Cali might actually be traveling farther.
All things I would assume their coaching staff considered when they chose to go, I suppose.Isn't Cali competing though? She said to go all that way and NOT compete, so it's kinda apples and oranges. It is pretty far to go to not compete. It's at least 7 hours drive time (or buy a plane ticket), which is CRAZY if you're not competing.

And if it's 7 hours drive time, I actually live farther away.
How in the world does one random question (I actually have no idea where in canada CS sharks are...which was why I asked) turn into a morning dressing down?Yes, you live further away. So do about 7 billion other people, who also are not exhibitioning. Again apples and oranges.
(I'm really just kidding - it's not that serious. I actually only clicked this thread by accident. I could not care less who that last banner is for. I hate these competitions that spend 6 months announcing who is coming to their competition - really by the time they get even a fourth of the way through, I've lost interest. Considering in over a month the thread only has a few pages... That should say how interested we still are... )

It was a random question, with a random comment that had no judgement attached whatsoever (hence the response about their coaches making that decision so I'm sure they have good reason, even if it's just "were excited to get some recognition and let our kids have that experience" which is perfectly legit)
And given the fact I'm not going to Majors...nor exhibitioning... Clearly I'm not trying to "one up" anyone with how far away I live. It merely helps me understand how far away the sharks are compared to me.
Decaf people. It's early.
The international flight is a good point with customs and all. Didn't think of that layer of "complicated-ness." That's a good thought.I just recently left cheersport as a coach and an athlete. GW's are out of the cambridge gym it's a 7 hour drive so maybe they'll just bus instead of flying which would be cheaper obviously. @mamabear what other insight did you mean? lol
Also I'm sure Ali and Alana (the owners) discussed and considered it and thought it was a great opportunity, which it totally is. However, I was JUST pointing out that it's a lot of money to spend to not be competing. They do however fundraise throughout the season for worlds so maybe they will for this too..who knows.
I was on an international team 4 years ago and I loved it! It was expensive though and it was hard on the wallet to go to US comps + Worlds. And I was one of the ones who DID fundraise. That's the only point I was trying to make is expense...no need for people to get all bent out of shape.
