Region Organization / Qualifiers
So a lot of discussion has gone on (from what I've seen in Midwest and South Central) about the lack of spots available for qualifying within your region. I've seen people asked lesser skilled players to let the "slayers" register first and wait for more informal opens/friendlies/whatevers for out of town competition. I'm not stating any opinion on that matter here.
Along with that, the suggestions I've made or heard or heard again have been:
Redistribution of regions
Addition of regions
Smaller qualifiers leading to larger qualifiers leading to Championships
Multiple qualifiers per region
Any opinions on these solutions? If growth continues, I like multiple tier qualifiers, like the state high school organizations I've been exposed to.

Add: due to discuss of a census, I've found a spreadsheet that hasn't been touched for two months.
