    "Why not restrict competition to athletes from the GTA only.
    LOL."

    Quoting: Kar
    "Wondering if any college or uni scouts attend the Legion Nationals? Also, why do club athletes compete at the Nationals who are not associated with their provincial team? Isn't the philosophy behind the RCL meets to give athletes, who do not belong to a Club team, who do not have coaches, or much training, a chance to compete on a National level, with all expences paid? Seems this concept is moot because the Nationals are full of Club athletes."


    Since this is the only national competition for this age group it wouldn't make sense to exclude club athletes.

    The level of competition at the Legion Nationals is still strong however it's only due to the fact that individuals who aren't on the provincial teams continue to register.. The problem is the non-transparent selection process at the district and provincial meets. I read on one thread on this topic that a Legion sponsor felt that since the Legion is paying for it then they should have the right to select who they want.... Well I help find the United Way at work but it doesnt mean I'm an expert on how the money should be spent!

    And we could restrict Trackie to participants from the GTA.

    "Tents were likely for those athletes, coaches and fans not representing their respective province, ie. club athletes. Smaller venues will run out of accommodation for everyone eventually."


    I could have flown the family to Europe for less money and less time than to get to Cape Breton. Booked our hotel 10 months before the event. If you think you might go in 2020 book that hotel soon.

    These small out of the way locations are idiotic. Where too next? Whitehorse?

    Exactly. People who live in the North or East or West never, ever have to shell out buckets of cash to get to "central" locations like the GTA. It's a totally "idiotic" idea to distribute nationals around the country if it disadvantages those living in the centre of the universe.

    What were those "clowns" at AC thinking when they awarded Legions to Sydney, NS, located a trillion miles away from the major airport in Halifax and only accessible by ox cart and row boat.

    Red downvote thumb for sure. GTA is not centre of Canada (it's Landmark MB). You've also insulted places like Langley BC, Brandon MB and PEI for starters. This is Trackie.ca NOT track.gta
