At first glance, the new schedule would seem to disfavor the kids from the stronger/deeper sections like SoCal, Southern, Texas, Florida; that is, sections where the national points available from sectional play might be more difficult to come by...I'm not sure - my kid's almost 11 and just about to embark on his first year of national play so we have no experience with the old schedule.
