    Much bigger than WSF. The entrance to the actual stage is a 15min walk. Bring your most comfortable shoes. Avoid taxis and uber if you can the rates go up and your stuck in them because of the traffic. The Marta is across the street and runs super fast. Hard to find dining downtown but the Ferris Wheel and I think its called Xgame holds big crowds and has simple bar food and lost of games but try and reserve in advance.

    Its one of my favorite comps so enjoy <3

    If you are using a wheelchair or have special needs athletes who need an elevator, add an extra 30 minutes in each direction for each elevator.

    If staying at aloft downtown is best bet to walk to convention center or Uber/taxi?

    We walked from the ALoft when we stayed there. The year we stayed there they had one elevator working. Other than that, parking at the hotel was decent, walk to convention center doable and seems like there were places to eat nearby.

    There are priority viewing areas in front of the stage (standing room only). There is quite a bit of space in them. But as I previously mentioned, if watching a worlds team, these may be packed. Last year one of my CP's teams was in between two worlds teams and it was difficult just trying to get up to the front to see my kid compete. I had to bulldoze my way through the crowd a bit.

    I haven't been to the aquarium during cheersport but I know a few people who have and said the Sunday isn't so bad, especially since awards are Sunday and most people stay at the GWCC throughout most of that day. I heard the Monday is normally a madhouse because most people will stay and decide to do the attractions that day instead.

    This is year 5 of my CPs going to Cheersport. Hopefully this will be the year at least one of them brings home a jacket. LOL.

    Since Cheersport is giving away an at large Summit bid to every division winner what would happen if the division winner already had a bid? Does it get thrown away or passed down?

    Pretty sure they'll get thrown away.

    They get thrown away. Or if the division winner gets a paid the at large for that division disappears.

    Still a little over a week away, but here is the spreadsheet for those interested! As always, it is locked for now, but feel free to copy/paste to your own doc to edit and sort as you wish!
    It does not have any teams (if there are any) that got Summit bids this past week, I will add those along with the ones from this coming weekend together some time next week. But there could definitely be some errors on there as well, so many teams haha. If you see any mistakes just let me know!
