This looks like a 20% drop. This could have been due to the cold and rainy weather being forecast, or due to the timing of Thanksgiving.

The Short Course Meters Championship put on by the Grunions would not be affected by allowing tech suits in short course yards meets. Doesn't make sense.

I agree that it is time to give this issue a rest. SPMA voted overwhelmingly against submitting a proposal to USMS. Other LMSCs that conducted similar votes had similar results, with the overwhelming majority against bringing back the tech suits.
