    If it simply means a change in the types of gatherings and opportunities for revelry, as Emm and cvcalhoun suggested, I support not having local teams this year.

    Last year was my first FS. My team was mostly from Maryland, but we were spread far enough apart that frequent gatherings were challenging.
    I was on a DC-centric team last year, where scheduling/life/dispersion across the city meant little in-person interaction outside of the opening and closing HH's. Conversely, I did manage to make it to a few social rides with folks that were more far-flung; I think with a lot of things - proximity isn't enough to guarantee socialization.

    Yes, being social is what's needed for socialization.

    I was on a NOVA-centric team, but I had teammates from DC and it's not like NOVA-centric means close proximity. It's a long ride from western Fairfax County to Alexandria. And, if like several of us, you have young kids, proximity is one but only one consideration for weeknight carousing.

    As for locale-based teams punishing DC-centric teams in the points column, that assumes that any trade-off in total distance isn't made up by the fact that Washingtonians may be more like to bike commute exactly because their commute is shorter.

    Which is to say: Pretty sure we're overthinking this.

    Heh -- I was going to add "as is typical," but I knew others would be happy to pick that one up for me.
