  1. Is Cheer Ltd Nationals at CANAM a "stay to play" event?  Cheer Ltd Nationals at CANAM is a partner perfect event!  What does partner perfect mean?  It means you are required to book rooms through THS that offers a myriad of hotels (all different price ranges, locations) to fit your teams needs AND you receive a rebate back for your rooms!  So partner perfect is not the same as your typical "stay to play" event.  You are guaranteed a hotel that WANTS cheerleaders and dancers at the lowest possible rate and with a rebate back to the team.  It is PERFECT!
