Funny, you mention three that we at NCCC specifically do care about, and in the order you mention.

I have a big problem with the NAQP "super" teams. They take ops away from the clubs, making it difficult for individual clubs to compete. This is the exact same problem I project if we open up "clubs" to allow operation from anywhere on the planet. We should be helping clubs to grow. It seems the proposal would have the exact opposite effect.
