I cannot imagine many times when such a request would come up after December.  And as Gordon pointed out the amendment would require any new event to be in the CEDA invite.  And yes, if we were at a site with the room, and another tournament wanted to bring in THEIR personnel and run THEIR tournament, why would we not want to expose other forensics folks to CEDA?  Are we really that unattractive?

As for the shot at the CEDA EC not being competent enough to generate revenue streams, all I can say is sometimes full time jobs get in the way of being good fund raisers.  What we do have going for us however is the ability to earn free Hotel Points when we host large tournaments.  Now you gotta give us credit for that.

A question...Former president elliott seems to suggest that it would be a 
good idea to add another organizations nationals after december...what 
organization mentioned there decides after december when and where it's 
nationals is going to be? Is this the just in case some other major national 
forensics organization LOSES its DETERMINED site, and is willing t pay us a 
whole bunch of money in order to manage their logistics and host their 
hundreds of people...and the problem is ...the president cannont say yes to 
this remarkably good idea? Clearly what we want our president doing is 
agreeing in feb. to try something cool at nationals...like doubling their 
logistical burden..and the number of people...revenue streams...dangerous 
road to go down...if executive power is entirely determined by ability to 
access revenue streams, then not a one of the current ec should be in 
charge. we should host nfl/ceda/ada/ndt/toc/ncfl/universes, use the intense 
profit generated from hosting other peoples nationals and hire our selves a 
top notch revenue stream accessing maven
