Yeah...I sometimes don't type exactly what i'm thinking. Gully is correct. I meant that the 8 L3 (regional) tournaments will all fall on the same weekend in January.
(& also in July, Sept. & Oct, there will only be ONE weekend in each of these months that these L3s will be played....as opposed to spread out all over the calender.)

And regarding Draw Size:
Only 22 to 23 applicants in my kid's draw in Midland TX, & even most of the older kid's draws had at most 40 kids applying......so lowering the draw size to 32 had ZERO impact....then again it IS Midland Texas.
A couple of kids from Oklahoma were the only out of staters. Heck....the El Paso kids are playing in AZ & the Houston kids are playing in Mobile.
I don't think the REAL squealing will take place until the Level 2s in Feb. (only 4 tournaments....& only 32 draws.)
