    We are the Borg. Prepare to be assimilated.

    (On an unrelated? Note...I'm a little concerned my iPhone auto correct not only knew the word Borg...but continues to capitalize it as the proper noun it is....)

    That is very sad news indeed. I don't fault CheerSport for selling (or Varsity for buying) if they feel they will make more money. However, a single company dominating/controlling the market is rarely good for the public in the long run - regardless of how much you like or trust them.

    "And the Jamfest stands alone the Jamfest stands alone. High-Ho, the dairio. The Jamfest stands alone!" Some may not like version one of The Majors, but it looks like we need a revolution right about now.

    Wow, that changes things a lot for Cheersport Vendors of the past. One year they had an amazing bow vendor (not me) and she did well and had a great product. Dallas - No Bows. Worlds - No Bows......

    I figured something was up when I heard awhile ago that Nfinity wasn't allowed to have their usual setup at Cheersport cause they weren't a Varsity product.

    Oh how I wish that Jam Brands Score Sheets didn't suck so much. They woulda/shoulda/coulda been a contender!
