In another era, the idea of the road trip to Regionals made a lot more sense. Going all the way back to the dark ages before cell phones, the internet and cable TV the idea of an interstate road trip with the family seemed a lot more popular than it is today. Add in COVID 19 and the cost of air travel, the idea of needing to go over a thousand miles to Regionals just seems less appealing than in decades past.
What if we did away with Regionals and replaced it with State Championships or at least made State Championships a bigger thing and a qualifier for Nationals.
