That's strange! Our schooling shows have been fairly large and not too different from past year. I just came back from a week at a rated show that was HUGE! There were at LEAST 30 per division. 3 rings a day that started around 7:30 and ended around 8pm. And I'm going back this week for round 2, which is supposed to be much bigger. People came in from as far as 10 hours away. Who knows!
