    I agree completely. I think that everyone should experience the thrill of the win and that it's great to win, but I was pointing out that sometimes a win isn't necessarily first place, but that one can 'win' in so many other ways, and it's not technically a loss by not coming in first place.
    Don't get me wrong, I know that everyone would love to get a jacket, medal, or ring for winning, but that the focus should be on success, and that it can also be achieved without coming in first place.

    Exactly my point. Your CP's team earned respect from others and a lesson that sometimes the win doesn't mean that they actually win... Sometimes a loss is an even bigger win, in the end, and our CP's learn much more with that experience than that other team did by taking home an NCA title. They learn the 'rights and wrongs' of the world and so much more through wins and losses.

    I'm not sure if you're saying "Huh?" to me or the rating, but I got a bullying rating on it and was just confused about how any of that could be taking offensively, especially by someone who's a fan of the gym that I was saying should've gotten grand champs.

    Oh I was confused on both, LOL. Was trying to figure out why someone would think that was bullying too.

    I've seen a lot of unintentional ratings given on the board lately, and I've done it myself. I know when I'm on my iPad, I scroll on the right side of the screen and have accidentally hit one of them.

    I agree. A lot of wrong ratings going around. I got and gave one too but it was fixed. @King I think we need bigger rating buttons for our big thumbs!

    Personally I feel you're disadvantaged when you have to travel for competition. After this year at NCA , I feel even further disadvantaged by having to utilize the housing authority for my accommodation. I did as instructed booking thru housing and ended up in a nice hotel in the middle of NOWHERE. I was 15 miles from downtown Dallas. Nearby DART they claim. We tried getting to Dallas via DART. The train wasn't bad at all. One train transfer and an hour later you're at the Convention Center.....:.when the train is running that is. My CP performed around 9:00 pm both days. The first night we had to wait for two hours in the cold for the train (last one of the night at that). Finally arrived at station near hotel only to learn hotel shuttle wouldn't pick us up. It was late, dark, too far to walk, no shuttle and no taxi in sight. We finally reached a cab company that would come pick us up in about half an hour. On a positive note we did meet some Dallas residents that are mighty colorful characters.
