You haven't competed in Quebec in that case lol.OPA is ok but in reality once you get more involved with the organization you will see its not all roses and sunshine. Lots of drama, back stabbing and bullshit I kid you not
I know many judges and higher up people as well and they will tell you the same thing
the aspect of cash grabbing has gotten ridiculous with so many shows, $200 back stage passes for coaches, dictator like photo rules all makes it less fun year after year that is for sure
even the promoters all back stab each other trying to steal shows from one another, along with judges who are also coaches makes me suspect of whats really going on.
how can you judge a competitor that has paid you to prep them?
its changed over the last decades dramatically and not for the better
Laura Binetti really knew how to run things but since she has left big difference that is for sure
