you compete in prelims, and if you do well enough, you go to final freestyles.

Is the trick ladder going to be combined 1a and 2a lists again?  Kinda weird last year.

Love to go and compete but I doubt I'll be able to make it. And I don't really see the need for prelims in a state contest...

I see where youre coming from, but when there are more than 30 contestants prelims are very neccesary

I've been to other states with easily that many. I mean I don't have anything against it, just seems kinda unnecessary.

Most other state contests do 2 minute freestyles without prelims, however, since most major contests use the 1 min prelim/3 min final setup, we felt it would be good to allow competitors to experience this freestyle setup outside of the high pressure of worlds and nationals.

Spectators get in for free, competitors pay $15 each.

It looks like I'm going to be able to make it this year Afro
