NASA Langley and NASA Kennedy Space Center regionals are the first ones, from 7-9/3. I believe those regionals will have the largest number of teams attending, since the winners'd have a month and a half to schedule the trip to the Championship. Maybe it's not as good as in the last years, when you could arrange the trip months in advance, but surely it's better to arrange 6 weeks before the Championship, than just two, in the case of those who win the last regionals. My question is: Shouldn't there be more early regionals, or it was on purpose, just like placing the nearby regionals in the same weekend?
