    So I went looking for some info on NACs and discovered that January, March & April have disappeared from the USFA website, along with JOs. Any idea why they might have hidden them?

    Where exactly were you looking for them? I find them listed at https://www.usafencing.org/national-events-calendar .

    I imagine it's because registration is not yet open for those events, so they aren't available on the registration website.

    Registration isn't open for the December NAC either.

    Maybe the site is using a calendar year instead of a season.

    You've got me there. Maybe they weren't supposed to be, and somebody fixed it. Maybe they were supposed to be, and somebody broke it. Maybe it's a change in policy. I could guess some other things, too, if you want.

    Have you tried looking in Ohio? They seem to like putting things in Ohio A LOT.

    Go for it, unhelpful but entertaining.

    In the past, it has been due to date, venue or event changes, which can be problematic. I hope that isn’t the case here.

    JJefferies, when did you register for the December NAC?

    ReadyFence, I was just talking to a friend of mine about this question, and she said she had spoken to someone in the national office recently about problems with people registering too early for local events, and the NO individual said that they had had that problem, too. So there's some reason to believe that they decided to combat that problem by removing events from the registration site until registration opened for them. Unfortunately, I have not been watching the registration site over this period to see what events may have been listed there before. If JJefferies registered for the December NAC before it was supposed to be open for registration, that might be an indication that the later events were removed for that reason.

    This is only speculation. If you are really concerned about possible changes to the events, you could write to the National Office and ask them.

    I don't think the site let you register until registration officially opened.

    The ones that are posted are the ones for which registration is open, the ones that are not there are the ones for which registration is not open. I'd lean towards the Occam's Razor approach instead of immediately jumping to the Zebra diagnosis :) (yes, yes, I know that's contrary to the true spirit of the internet, where everything must automatically be assumed to be the start of the next phase of the reptilian/Illuminati conspiracy).
