Well, many states don't even host invitationals, so teams have to drive very far away to get there.
On the other hand, some states host three or four invitational competitions, so that kind of evens it out.

You'd be surprised. There are regions--with highly competitive teams, no less--that don't have access to invitationals, typically because SO is not as 'big' there (in my experience, Saint Louis county) or because there's relatively hardly any people living in the region, anyway (western and southern IL :| ). Even in the Chicago suburbs, which is a populous area with a lot of registered teams (and many strong ones), invitationals have only exploded recently. There were more for C division, but B only had one annually there for awhile. Now, there are a ton of them.

Only ~15% of GA Division B teams go to more than one.

At least among Scioly users, though.

Actually, as far as I know, my team is the only one in our region that goes to any invitationals at all, let alone multiple.

Invites are more of an East Coast/Ohio Valley thing. On the West Coast, as far as I know, there are very few invites and they're all small. I think Washington state has one, and Oregon might? have one. California only has two - Mira Loma and Troy - as far as I'm concerned, and those both barely started last year/two years ago.

Oregon has several according to their state wiki page; but yes, in the Southeast I believe only Georgia has more than 1 per division.

A couple of my teammates went to an invitational, but I couldn't go because our orchestra was performing elsewhere on the same day.

In Ohio, my team will have competed in seven invitationals this year. They are quite common around here.

ANTI-STOIC AWARD: Get 1st and clap/cheer excessively


Me in a nutshell, except that I'm like that any time anyone from our team medals- it doesn't have to be 1st, and it doesn't have to be me.

And that's not even getting into how I reacted when we heard that we got 2nd overall...
