Q: Hypothetical — Club ultimate happens in 2021 with an abbreviated regular season where not many teams have 10 sanctioned games, but a full postseason is able to unfold as most are vaccinated against COVID-19 by mid-summer. How should USAU handle bids to 2021 Nationals? I think if the 2020 club postseason season were to have happened, USAU was correct in planning to assign bids to Nationals based on the 2019 results. But what if this happens in 2021? Do you dole out Nationals bids as were earned two years ago, or start fresh and give each region two bids?
