I think a big problem is there are now too many tournamnets. Here in Chicago, the AIRHS and TORHS regional got canceled.......why?? In a 4 week span here, we had Triple Crown, Breakout, AIRHS had a qualifier in Detroit the week before and one in St. Louis the next, NARCH had qualifiers too, each at $450 a pop.........a house league costs 1000 and you get 10 games and playoffs........it just costs too much ,money to play more than 2, besides that the nationals cost 700+ to play......I remember when USA and NARCH were the only tournamnets that came around and all the best teams from all around came, because there was a limited number of regionals.......or qualifiers, beacuse regionals should only include teams from that region. Well, I'll get off the soap-box, I'm just pissed that I missed out on a lot of tournamnets this summer because of a lack of teams in CHICAGO, the 2nd biggest city in the country.
