I am a complete newbie - never competed myself, never went to competitions. So, please have patience with me. I am also a father of a ruggie boy who started competing (bx) this season. How do I know whether he qualified for nationals? He competed twice this season, once he was 1st, the other time 2nd. I understand the invitations will come out later this month - but that would be too late for me to organize this rather expensive travel for us. So, this year we might miss the nationals. I am open for advice on cheap airfare, rent-a-car, lodging and getting around for the next year, though. He'd be grommet and he's probably going to do both bx and ss, maybe hp, too.
