LA in February 2016? Sign me up!

Perhaps old news by now, but the site of the 2016 Trials has been decided! There was a lot of controversy around this decision (I won't get into it), but I am thrilled to have a concrete location and date on the calendar! Now, if I can just conveniently take off that 1:12 from my personal best to qualify... :)

The Men's and Women's Trials will be held together, and NBC will be broadcasting both, similar to Houston in 2012.

This means that you can try to qualify up until January 13, 2016, giving another few precious months to hopefuls (vs. Houston, which was the #2 choice, or Cincinnati... I think a distant 3rd choice).

Onward to LA 2016!!

PS - Think LA will be as accommodating as Chicago with my cheer team's cow suits? :)
