I just feel bad for the handful of uncommitted girls from some teams that are soooo committed that they voted to not attend the PresCup for lack of necessity. Does this happen every year?

Skywalkers M&D and Hero’s are not attending because their teams are finished with their committing? As a commit, you are never finished working! I know it’s a huge money expense right now,but the convention is the only place all year all of the coaches are together commiserating, comparing, and just all around sharing stories and notes.
A missed opportunity for those girls.
