First off, I'm not going to comment on every reply but this kind of selfish behavior is the reason we're in this particular situation. I could easily shout back thru my keyboard, "typically westside response" but, like I said, this should be about solutions to keeping the Mat Classic high school tournament in one venue. If you don't have any solutions we don't really need your opinion on the matter because it doesn't help solve the problem.
There is no location in the world that is equal distance for everyone to travel to. Seems only fair to do one State tourney on each side of the State on back to back weekends.
This is the entire reason people are thinking it's a good idea to separate the State tournament. Which again, to those of us with enough rational thought to understand what's going on, is the wrong thing to do.
If they do not hold the State high school tournament for all classifications in the same venue, at the Tacoma Dome, you run the risk of your child's hs AND kids state tournaments being held in venues located in Spokane or Tri-Cities. Furthermore, if the WIAA does not continue to hold State in the Tacoma Dome it will undoubtedly be held at another venue and your odds of that being in a cheaper location on the east side of the exponentially increase.
So again, let's work on logical solutions to our current problem.
