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 )

Re: New District Events for 2013?

I still can't decide if I'm for or against California having district events.

I can see why. Well 1) there are a lot of California teams and 2) it would be cheaper and there would be more events for teams.

But I think we need more regional competitions elseware. There are a lot of out of CA teams that rely on the CA regional competitions. There would probably have to be a Mexico Regional first (which honestly isn't that far away) and at least one more in the midwest. There are always a few idaho teams that come to CA, but another competition besides Utah is necessary.

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...

Re: New District Events for 2013?

If Hawaii had the "option" of participating in a California District Model, it would awesome.
Make one of the district events here in Hawaii, giving California teams an incentive to come here as well.

359 would still probably do the 1 regional outside of HI/CA as usual.

From the perspective of my team in Norcal it looks good, we could go to SAC, SVR, and CVR. (and maybe CSC if we do well )

It'd be a blast to go to 3 competitions and see the local teams improve.
