    I'm really excited to go to this one. I didn't get to Indy last year but a lot of the parents from our gym liked it. I'm also looking forward to seeing girls/parents from our team last year who are now on Panthers and SE. It's a reunion.

    Any suggestions for first timers? Must see/ Must do? Last time I was in Indy was before the venue was built:oops:

    It is my understanding that TG declined their invitation for a previous engagement..

    Glad to see Steel joining orange there. It'll be a rematch for places 2-5 at worlds! I wonder why TGLC never came back after the first year. I remember hearing something about how they didn't like how it was judged?

    They've kept medium/large all girl and large coed every year and been rotating through the other divisions (small coed in 2013, small senior in 2014, medium coed 2015). I wish they would just do all the divisions every year, but that would probably be too much for just an evening competition. It does make sense to keep the two most popular divisions though (three if you include medium since they seem to lump that together with large all girl every year).

    Good point. I didn't realize they had rotated through the small and medium divisions. I guess that makes a bit more sense. I guess the fact that they didn't define all-girl as large it threw me off. Thanks for the explanation!

    Okay I'm all for a little suspense, but it took them a month to announce all of the teams. Now they release the "final" picture and there is an empty banner

    wish they invited ody! :( or even black ops since WC and Cali are already attending... large coed gets 4 teams, why only 3 med coed? though it is a cool idea to just invite worlds top threes each year, even though teams change.

    I think they just have something else going on. I'm sure they will return eventually. People forget last year was the first time WC acame, and I can't imagine that was the first year they were invited. Also, I'm pretty sure the MAJORS helps a little with travel and stuff when they invite these teams so it's not all out of pocket expenses since most of these teams come from a distance, they can't really invite EVERYONE.

    The last banner is cheer sport sharks great whites. Unless there are more teams that are not listed too. It was announced on GW's Instagram.

    They are listed as special appearance so I don't think they are competing, but i think this is a great add by The Majors and so well deserved!

    Under majors twitter it says Do you want to see the final flag and then a few hours later it says "majors is bringing you new twists! its time to cross borders to highlight teams in new divisions" so it makes it sounds like they're competing?

    Kinda crappy to go all that way to not be able to compete and only "guest perform" but thats my opinion

    Ok....:confused: if you go to the Majors twitter it specifically says guest performer and they haven't listed any other IO5 teams. Either way I am glad they will be there.
