    If you were shady you could wear your competitions t-shirt or colors and walk around without a mask :/

    i mean i get trying to enforce it, but i think more high profile teams will be far more penalized then no name allstars walking around. idk, we will see. Was this a rule suddenly put in place half way through day one??

    So far have not heard of any team actually receiving the "no mask" deduction. Seems to be more of a threat.

    Yep. My dog was trained super well to hold it all day. At my last job, I was able to come home over lunch and let him out. Then I changed jobs and it wasn't possible anymore, so he's been trained to go out with me in the mornings then again when I get home at the end of the day. Now I've been working from home for almost a year and we're going on short walks probably 5 times a day to break up the monotony. I'm worried about transitioning back to the office, which will happen at some point. Going to have to basically potty train him all over again at 3 years old!

    I live alone, so I may have to look into paying someone to let him out once a day when that time comes.

    A lot of people who got puppies over the last year will have a huge problem if everyone goes back to work in the family if everyone has been home.

    Agree. My dog now can't be home alone without wining the whole time. We went on a ski trip for Christmas and my neighbors who watched her said she wouldn't eat, wouldn't go outside, wouldn't move from the door whining. Ans when she was a pup, she was home alone the whole time we were at school.

    I am a teacher. Every Summer my dogs get attached/use to me being home. When I first return to work they aren't happy. They adjust with time.

    Update: 2021 IASF Worlds Championships
    With the goal of making some level of participation available for our athletes worldwide, the IASF has been working to secure dates sometime in September 2021 for its annual Worlds Championship in Orlando. In the event that travel continues to be impacted due to Covid 19, the IASF is considering a virtual 2021 IASF Worlds Championship option as well. We are also not ruling out some type of hybrid format that allows for both in-person and virtual categories. We hope to have the dates finalized within the next two weeks and will post this information as soon as we know it.
    Teams that are eligible to participate in the International divisions for Cheer and Junior and Open divisions for Dance in the USASF Competition this May will also be able to participate in the IASF Worlds Championship this September.
    • The IASF will also honor all bids for teams who earned bids to either the 2020 or 2021 Cheer and Dance Worlds.
    • The only teams that are not required to receive a bid are Level 7 teams. All Level 7 teams are welcome to attend (including Level 7 teams in the U.S.)
    • The IASF substitute rules and regulations will not be enforced for the IASF Worlds Championship in the Fall of 2021.
    Lastly, the traditional bid distribution model will be used to determine which teams qualify for the 2022 IASF Worlds Championship and the IASF plans to return the IASF Worlds Championship to the customary date of late April in 2022.

    I'm glad that in person competitions seem to be going well and seem to have lots of safety measures in place. Similarly glad that virtual competitions like Cheer Match are going well too!

    Meanwhile, in England, we're going to be told today that from the 8th March, we can sit down outside with one other person for a coffee/drink/picnic etc!

    Cheer is looking like the 29th March.


    (I'm very in favour of restrictions to suppress the virus and taking a step by step approach to re-opening but just find the contrasts amazing!)
