Thanks, Dale for the thourough post on how the Gold qualify system works.
My only concern is that California teams will play in OTHER REGIONS to
qualify, most likely beating out teams from THAT region.  So, we'll be
back to square one from the standpoint that there will be excess number of
California Gold teams and minimal Gold teams from the other Regions.  Tell
me, if you know, are there restrictions on:

*---  how many California teams or number of teams from each region
allowed to participate in the Gold National?  We just may see the Cal.
teams out-number teams from around the country because they qualified in
other Regions.

Please understand that I do not care so much that we have a large number
of Cal. teams.  The problem I am hearing from California coaches is that
THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE WANTING A NATIONAL NOT MADE UP OF MAJORITY
CALIFORNIA GOLD TEAMS.............but of teams well rounded from all of
the other Regions.

Cheers,

 Unfortunately there are no restrictions on the amount of California teams
that participate
at the Gold Nationals as long as they Qualify or are fill-in teams by the
point system.

Yes, this is true. Some of the fif*** regions won't even have a team from
that region and
they won't even have a Qualifying Tournament there. That birth will then
revert back to
ether California, Texas or AZ. because they have the most Gold teams
registered. It would
be nice not letting  Cal. and Texas play outside there region, but thats
not going to
happen. The Gold teams from Washington and Oregon ( I have heard of only
three) are
just going to have to travel the country like some of the Cal. teams do
until they Qualify or
get enough points to get a fill-in spot.
