While my personal position has been that I'd rather have more competition and would rather take 3rd in a full class than 1st by myself
I, as an athlete, agree completely.
I've come to realize that a lot of people just want to lift and take a trophy home to show their friends, kids, girlfriend, grandkids or whatever.
Sad, but true.
It's not exactly my thing but when I thought about it, if that's what people want at a local or state meet, might as well make em happy. If they want competition, they'll go to Nationals at some level.
From a business standpoint, I agree at the local level, and, if necessary, at the state meets. Either one caters to one's customers, or a competitor surely will.
