Hi all, We went to the Ohio Star Ball this year as well as competing at the Collegiate Nationals for the first time. For us, it felt a little awkward and we noticed an anomaly in the judging. We somehow received 11 out of 21 possible recalls in novice smooth even though we missed the event. We were not sure if the is an error owing to the PDA system or the fact that there 16 smooth couples on the floor an the judges were simply clicking familiar numbers from Gold smooth. We were interested in others' opinions of the Collegiate Nationals this year. While we enjoyed the Pro shows, we're not sure about attending the collegiate portion again.
