With the new addition of the Encore Challenge, more teams have the opportunity to qualify for the World Championship. However, the requirement to have a team member who previously qualified for the 2020 World Championship worries me. Not because it’s a daunting requirement, but because I would think it would be logistically challenging for judges to determine whether or not team members are being truthful about their previous affiliation.
So, how does the REC Foundation ensure that these members are being honest about their activities last season? And, furthermore, how do we, as team members, need to prove ourselves as previously being associated with a team that qualified for the 2020 World Championship?
