Wow my prediction for 2020 was correct!
Did you know which schools submitted bids or did you just make a wild guess?

Well it wasn't quite a wild guess; I thought about it and considered that 1) they haven't hosted in a while, and were slated to host some years ago (2004?) but had to cancel for some reason 2) they have a history of good state tournaments and a reputation as a generally well-run state, and 3) who else is there? (probably several, but I couldn't think of any other places).

I have no idea who 2021 will be though, or what happened to Missouri and 2019.

I believe IU Bloomington submitted a bid for 2020 since that's IU's bicentennial year...

The only Missouri universities of national tournament size are UMKC and UM-Columbia. Columbia used to be our state location, but they kicked us out in 2014. That leaves UMKC, which has little tournament experience, and our state director didn't want it there.

What counts as national tournament size? Juniata isn't all that large (nor is UW-Stout for that matter, at least in terms of building space), but they supported everyone just fine.

I notice several regional tournaments hosted at universities with sufficient size, but I'm not sure whether the rule about them having to have hosted a combined state tournament still applies (though many of the hosts didn't do so until after they got the bid; Augusta State University hosted a combined tournament just once, in 2008).

I'm not sure this is true about Juniata, exactly. From what I've heard, there were definite overcrowding concerns. The gym couldn't fit all the teams, so they had to hold awards outdoors, which took a turn for the worse since it was raining. Also, there's a definite accessibility issue, as the roads leading into campus were definitely not designed for the sort of traffic associated with a national tournament, especially nowadays. There's a reason that PA hasn't hosted nationals since then; they'd need to find a larger venue.

Huh, that's disappointing; Mizzou was a beautiful campus. That's a horrible drive to the new site from Saint Louis County...

It still is a beautiful campus! Our state moved to Westminster College not UMKC. UMKC is the only other college in Missouri that has the size (Westminster is tiny, at state there aren't enough homerooms for teams so some have to camp outside) and experience (I believe they host one of the regions) to host nationals, but they declined or something.
