                                         WHAT TOURNAMENTS EAST OF VEGAS ARE TEAMS ATTENDING?                        

Good question, we always hear about how many teams are attending tournaments but nobody bothers to break it down so you can find out where each age and rating groups are going to play. Do you really care if a tournament is drawing SIXTY-TWO teams if only FOUR are in your age and rating group?

So what I have done based on the information available on tournament attendance figures for SPA, ISSA and SSUSA , I have a list of the attendance by age and rating for each tournament. ISSA and SPA were easy but SSUSA was a little difficult because they do not list the attendance figures for all their tournaments (have to really search to other sites to find them, especially those with under 25 teams)

Anyway here are the results. Keep them in mind when determining what tournaments east of Vegas to attend next year.  Listing the top FIVE DRAWS only.
