New District Events for 2013?

With this week being the Michigan and Mid-Atlantic Championships, I figure it's as good a time as any to ask.
What if any new District models do you think will be adopted for next year?
California?
Texas?

And one more question, would you rather you be in Districts now or continue attending Regionals?
(assuming you're not in a districted system already )

where is that? I'm thinking another in SoCal.

If southern california get's another, I wouldn't mind seeing one in San Francisco even though we have SVR and Sac so close.

Ask rsisk. I can think of at least two off the top of my head, 2493 being one, and Riverside isn't that far from the L.A. area teams--figure a couple hours or so. Close enough that whether to commute or stay in a hotel will be a serious debate on some teams.

Re: New District Events for 2013?

There are roughly 12 teams in the Inland Empire area this year. We have been growing fairly quickly during the last three years (2 teams in 2008, 12 teams now). We have also had significant growth in FLL and some growth in FTC teams as well. We should also be able to pull teams from San Diego (1hr), LA (1hr), Vegas (4hrs), AZ (5hrs), and Central CA (CVR 5hrs).

Re: New District Events for 2013?

Minnesota, Texas, and Ontario/Eastern Canada seem like potential areas for the district model, at least from an outside perspective.

I'd feel sorry for Wisconsin teams if Minnesota goes district, though. They'd be wedged between two district systems, and lose a lot of nearby regional options.

Re: New District Events for 2013?

Personally I would want an district system in CA. Would mainly to give us more events for play for not that much more money [3rd event only $500].
However I can see the issues with such a system if there isn't enough teams close enough...

I can see MN going to district, although I don't know what the geographic spread of teams looks like in the state.

Yeah, it would stink. Double if WI and Midwest are same week again, or consecutive weeks like many other times!

I'm not sure if Ontario would go to a District model just yet, seeing that FIRST Canada is pretty set on expanding FIRST across Canada right now. Montreal is going to be a BIG regional next year (their growth has been phenomenal), and I think the focus should be to develop FIRST in Western Canada (one day I could see Calgary as a powerhouse region for FIRST).

Personally, I'd like Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the UP all together. Downstate is so far away by comparison.
