Prior to 1994, there were only about 5 competitions held in a year, with approximately 10-12 teams competing at each event.  From 1994 to 1996, about 9 competitions were held each year with 10-15 teams attending each.  Between 1996-2000, the number of competitions increased to 15-24 per year, with 15-25 teams at each event.  From 2000 to 2002, there was continued growth, with around 20-25 competitions per year with 15-35 performances.  Starting in 2002, the number of performances at each event started to increase as teams started to compete in multiple categories, with 20-50 performances at a single event.
