So its in CA this year, and we went to 3 trials I think & got all the Q's needed to enter. I've never gone before & am not even sure I will go to this one, mostly due to time off work & cost: it's a bit overwhelming to think about it & where I'll find the $'s needed for it. It's a huge cost for me. Even though I've qualified in all the events I'm asking myself whether or not to pick & choose which to enter. Skipping some of them will ave a little $'s, but mostly it's to save on hotel charges & the cost of not working each day I'm gone. Is it reasonable to think this way? Today I was even thinking of not going at all which is sad given this is the closest chance of going to a national event. Do others pick & choose to skip tournaments even if they are qualified in? I added everything up & I don't think I can afford/justify the cost for each day I'd have to be there & the traveling time. The entry form mentions reserving ($) space in large tents for crating or going it on your own. Does anyone have any experience from past Cynosports to advise one option over the other. There's no mention of cost if you bring your own tent. So many things to consider before even getting there not to mention having no experience running under lights in the evening or what the surface will be like on astro turf or the painted markings causing confusing. Any experienced Cynosporters here got insight they can share?
